About Elliptical Trainers
Elliptical trainers represent the next wave of advancement in low-impact cardiovascular exercise machines and continue to grow in popularity. By simulating motions experienced through walking, stepping, cycling, and skiing, elliptical machines allow for a smooth and fluid motion while building strength in the arms and legs. Similar to the exercise position for treadmills, elliptical trainers are used by standing in an upright position while holding the handrails of the machine. With elliptical trainers, however, your feet remain in the foot pedals throughout the exercise regimen and circulate in a smooth and seamless motion, resulting in little to no impact on the knees, back, and hips.
Elliptical trainers are compatible for all ages and fitness levels and allow you to select the difficulty level through the incline and intensity settings. Additionally, elliptical trainers allow you to determine the complexity of your workout based on your needs, all while listening to music, watching television, or reading a magazine while exercising in the comfort and safety of your own home.
Although different types of elliptical trainers offer an assortment of features, many of them include an array of challenging programs, forward and reverse directional movement, EKG grip pulse handles, a lightweight portable design with easy fold-up capability, and a monitor displaying calories burned, distance, speed, time, and heart rate. Other types of exercise machines, namely treadmills and bikes, offer excellent cardiovascular exercise and muscular training for the legs in a forward-motion exercise. Elliptical trainers take this to the next level by offering an upper and lower body workout with dual motion, challenging and diverse programs, and a low-impact exercise machine that won't strain sensitive joints.

This review is from: Ignite 2820 Elliptical Trainer (Sports)I bought this elliptical from a local dealer brand new. I was accustomed to working out on ellipticals at the gym for 1.5 hours on level 9 with no problem. When I got on this thing, though, I could barely move the pedals at level 1! It is manual (as opposed to the electric ones at the gym) and is VERY difficult. After the 2nd time of use, the machine started making this horrible squealing noise. The dealer came to my home and inspected it. The rubber on the wheels which make the pedals "glide" up and down was peeling off onto the bar. The guy spread some liquid silicone on it and that resolved the problem. He left the bottle of silicone with me and I have to apply it every time I want to use the machine. This is unacceptable and very annoying. I've tried to contact the manufacturer but never get an answer or call back. I will never buy their products again.
