Features to Consider Before Buying an Elliptical Trainer for Home

First, it is important to know the manner and frequency you’ll be using an elliptical trainer, as well as the space available for it.

1. Durable Quality

There are many brands of elliptical trainers today, and as the price increases, you tend to obtain sturdier frames, larger workout areas, better consoles, and smoother operation.

2. Cross Trainer Parts and Options

a. Front Drive or Rear Drive

The front drive or rear drive refers to the location of the flywheel on the machine. It is actually a matter of preference. Based on the description of the American College of Sports Medicine, a rear-wheel drive provides a more natural and free movement which gives a more comfortable feeling.

A front-wheel drive can replicate this with the use of articulating pedals, simulating this motion. However, the front wheel drive without articulating pedals won’t provide the similar natural feel. Rear Wheel elliptical cross trainers usually have adjustable ramps that can be altered, targeting different muscle groups. The strides may feel longer on a front wheel drive with a similarly jogging motion. The front wheel drive elliptical trainers are less expensive but with the expense of the stride with a more natural feeling.

b. Stride Length

The stride length is measured by computing the difference between the front and the back area of the front foot. This is a critical feature when shopping the right cross trainer for you.

The motion should be comfortable and feel natural, with each smooth rotation of your legs and feet. Generally, taller users need an elliptical trainer with a longer length of stride, while shorter people need to use a more compact machine. The lengths of strides vary from 30 to 50 centimeters.

c. Weight Capacity

Home use elliptical trainers have a lower maximum user weight while commercial elliptical machines have a higher maximum user weight and are generally more expensive.

An elliptical cross trainer usually has a maximum weight capacity of 160kg which also depicts a well-built and sturdy machine.

d. Flywheel

Another important factor to consider is the flywheel because its weights affect the smoothness and resistance of your motion, while you are building your momentum.

It is best to find an elliptical trainer with a flywheel that weighs at least 7 kilograms because a heavier flywheel usually means a higher-quality machine. Some manufacturers do not publish the weight of the flywheel, so it’s worth doing an extra research just to find this information for a smart buying decision.

e. Console

This is where you can monitor your progress while working out. For instance, an LCD screen may display time, speed, distance, and other relevant information about your workout.

As the specs increase, there are more features available and the expensive models may also feature color touchscreen or backlit LCD displays. Some brands offer connectivity to smartphones or fitness trackers, while some also have speakers, providing more in-depth feedback and extra motivation.

3. Resistance

An elliptical cross trainer is different from the treadmill wherein you can set the belt rotation speed and just keep up. With an elliptical trainer, your activity sets your work speed.

The resistance is altered for increasing the intensity and difficulty of your workout. It’s important to consider the resistance range most especially if you are planning to use it for long-term training. More adjustments won’t always mean a wider range of resistance.

4. Heart Rate Monitoring

Your heart rate is measured in different ways. These measure the heart rate via hand sensors on the handlebars. Elliptical training machines have wireless receivers that connect to a chest strap and transmits the heart rate to the monitoring console.

If you are planning to train within the heart rate zones, the chest straps are more accurate as compared to handlebar sensors.

Conclusion

There are several things you have to consider when shopping for an elliptical cross trainer. Investing with a product with the highest specification you can afford will likely get you the best piece of fitness equipment with more features, considering the durability, portability, and comfort it brings.
