What To Look For In An Elliptical TrainerWritten by Timothy Gorman
To get a decent elliptical trainer you should be prepared to spend at least one thousand dollars. If you spend less than that don't expect machine to be as well built as higher end models.
It is also very important to try elliptical trainer out in store before you buy. The less expensive ellipticals almost always tend to make noise. The more vigorous workout more noise it will make. The other problem is they tend also to wobble and move. With a very fast workout some of these elliptical trainers even move across floor. Since some machines are not as well built as others, pay special attention to warranty, and if it's a short one you should purchase an extended warranty.
Also some of elliptical trainers were found to be uncomfortable for shorter persons because of flywheels and handlebars. Watch for your feet not to slip off pedals, and movement of handlebars should not be so wild as to cause you to bump into them.
Working Out On The Reebok Elliptical TrainerWritten by Timothy Gorman
The Reebok elliptical trainer is a large machine with mostly self contained parts. This makes it difficult for owner to do repairs and maintenance himself. There is very little problem with Reebok elliptical, except that after some regular use it does become very noisy.
Most people seem to really enjoy Reebok elliptical because it has such a smooth ride. The handlebars move with pedals and help to give you an upper body workout. If you don't want to use them, and many people don't, you can leave them off when putting Reebok elliptical together. If you elect to leave them on machine and don't want to use them, there is another bar on top in center that you can use to just hold on to for balance. Be careful because handlebars will still swing back and forth.
