It’s the age-old question of the modern cardio enthusiast: treadmill or elliptical? After all, they both offer a challenging cardiovascular workout that can be customized to a person’s ability level. They both are staples at the gym, but can be purchased for home use. They both offer an intense aerobic workout that burns calories, tones leg muscles, and improves overall health.
So which one is right for you? Here’s some info to help you make the best decision:
You might be a treadmill junkie if…
…you’re looking for a quick way to lose excess fat.
…you want to build extreme cardiovascular endurance.
…you enjoy outdoor runs in the spring and fall, but need a better way to log your miles during extreme summer heat or bitter winter temps.
