Elliptical Machines: A Staple for Your Home Gym or Commercial Gym

Elliptical machine from home gym

When you walk into a gym you will notice a few staples. There are treadmills, squat racks, dumbbells, bench presses, and elliptical machines.  


Elliptical machines are one of the newer staples as they only rose in popularity as recently as the 1990s. Today they are easily one of the most popular pieces of equipment out there because they give you a full-body cardio workout that cannot be replicated elsewhere.  


You will often find that elliptical machines are all in use during a gym's busier times, and there may even be a short line for gym-goers waiting to use this fantastic machine.  


For this reason, many gym owners are looking to expand their array of elliptical machines. Likewise, if even one elliptical machine is out of order, gym owners will want to replace or repair it immediately.  


In this post, we will quickly detail what your gym members will be looking for when they use an elliptical machine, the top benefits of elliptical use, and some models you should consider for your home or commercial gym.  


What Gym Goers Are Looking for From an Elliptical Machine 


Elliptical machines are an excellent resource for gym-goers of all kinds because they can provide various benefits depending on their needs.  


Let’s break down some of the needs elliptical machines can address and the benefits of elliptical use.  


Elliptical Resistance Workout 


Increasing the resistance of an elliptical machine has a profound effect on a user’s muscles and is a great way to work up sweat and build muscle mass.  


Elliptical Speed Workout 


Many people want to increase their speed and improve their cardio health. For a speed test that gets away from the treadmill or track, elliptical training can yield great speed improvements.  


High-Intensity Interval Training 


A combination of speed and resistance is one of the best ways to get the heart pumping. For an intense calorie burn, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is easily achieved on an elliptical machine.
