Elliptical cross trainers are incredible pieces of home gym equipment that facilitate low-impact cardio workouts. If you wish to get this equipment for your home, you have come to the right place. Power Break is the leading gym equipment shop in Kolkata and East India's most trusted dealer of PowerMax Fitness equipment.
If you need a little bit of convincing, check out these 7 amazing benefits of working out on an elliptical cross-trainer.
1. Improved stamina and cardiovascular capacity
Cardio sessions are a crucial part of a balanced fitness regime compelling your heart and lungs to work harder. Performing aerobic exercises makes your heart and lungs work harder to provide your muscles with the extra blood and oxygen, thereby strengthening them. Our EH-200 Elliptical Cross Trainer will help you perform great cardio sessions, which can improve your heart, lungs and muscles, thereby improving your stamina and endurance levels.
2. Burning of huge amounts of calories
If you want to burn a lot of calories quickly, you should definitely get this machine. Increasing the intensity of this machine enables you to burn more calories than you consume and helps you lose weight. Performing the right exercises on our EH-220 3 in 1 Elliptical Cross Trainer can help you burn 270-400 calories in just half an hour, depending on your body weight.
3. Protection of joints from excess stress
An elliptical cross trainer enables you to perform low-impact cardio workouts since your feet are never off the pedals. This is an amazing alternative equipment for people experiencing joint pains, especially on the knees and hips. Working out on our EH-225 Elliptical Cross Trainer can reduce the weight and stress on your joints compared to other exercises like running, jogging, etc.
4. Upper as well as a lower body workout
An elliptical machine is one of the few fitness equipments that offers both upper and lower body workout. The handlebar enables you to work your entire upper body, especially arms, chest and shoulders. Moving the pedals works your lower body. Performing the right exercises on our EH-240 Elliptical Cross Trainer can facilitate targeting of the chest, back, bicep, tricep, core muscles and more.
5. Burning of excess fat
Performing high-intensity workouts on elliptical machines can help you burn all the fat in a significantly short amount of time. Consider performing interval training for this purpose and always work your legs during the recovery periods. Workout on our EH-250S Cross Trainer with the ratio of high-intensity workout to interval training as 2:1 to maximize fat burning (for instance, 2 minutes of high-intensity workout must be followed by 1 minute of interval training).
6. Improved balance
Exercises involving weight bearing can strengthen your bones and muscles and help you improve your balance in a safe way. While working out on our EH-300 Cross Trainer, let go of the handlebars to target your core muscles and improve your balance while setting the inclination and resistance at a suitable level.
7. Building strength
While people usually go for resistance training to strengthen their muscles, cross trainers are an excellent alternative to achieve the same goal. Research suggests that cross trainers can be used for recovery exercising for those who perform intensive resistance training as muscles recover much faster resulting in greater overall strength. Crank up the resistance on our EH-400 Light Commercial Elliptical Trainer to make your body work harder to achieve the same speed and thus, become stronger.
