Basically an elliptical trainer is designed to provide a cardiovascular workout rather than build muscles. It is a fixed in place exercise machine used to simulate walking or running without causing excessive pressure to the joints and, by that way, decreasing risks of impact injuries. Elliptical trainers offer a non-impact cardiovascular work that can vary from light to high intensity, on user’s upper and/or lower body. There are three types of elliptical trainers. The oldest elliptical design is the "rear drive" type. The "front-drive" elliptical was the second generation design. The latest design technology is the "center-drive", most recent improve of machine combinations. A recent study by the University of Idaho shows that varying the stride length on the elliptical trainer can recruit a larger variety of muscle groups. The study also showed that as the stride is lengthened, more calories are burned without any higher rate of perceived exertion by the user. This study lends credibility to the claims made about the adjustable stride length feature on some newer ellipticals.
