Elliptical Cross-trainer Buyers Guide

Elliptical Trainer Buyer's Guide

 

Elliptical trainers, also called cross-trainers, are increasingly popular due to their presence in gyms in Australia, as well as their exposure on reality TV shows such as Channel 7's Bringing Sexy Back.

They provide a full-body workout (so they tone, as well as increase cardiovascular fitness).

But which one is best? And what is all that fitness industry jargon you hear like "flywheel" and "stride length"?

Rather than bore you with more text, we've assembled some of the most popular elliptical trainers in the Australian market in our own store and created a couple of videos to cover the most common questions we've had from buyers.

Firstly, the number one question we get is "what's the difference between front and rear drive cross trainers"? Turn up your volume (because there's commentary) and watch below for the answer...

 

Next, let's explain the jargon. What are the key features of all elliptical trainers, and which attributes will be most important for you in setting up your home gym? Again, please listen for commentary...

 

We hope that helps. And don't forget, if you're browsing our range of ellipticals and are finding it a bit hard to remember the features from one trainer to the next, you can compare ellipticals side-by-side on one screen.
