    I 100% would rather use an elliptical than a treadmill. It’s awesome that you burn the same amount of calories and you can burn even more because you can run longer on an elliptical. I like to read a book while using the elliptical, it can be a little bit difficult because of the bobbing motion you make but it isn’t too hard. It helps me get my mind off the running and I get a lot of great exercise in!

      Hi, Mariah and thank you.

      It is a big difference, and for sure many pros and cons, when you compare treadmills and the elliptical trainers. In the basic, both machines are very good with huge benefits but focus on different things.

      But like you said, it is better to read books when you are on an elliptical trainer. The reason is that it is softer to use.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    As a past owner of a treadmill, I find this article very useful.  I’ve thinking about getting another treadmill but after reading this article, I feel that an elliptical trainer may be the best choice for me because there would be less impact on my joints.  I want to get back to training shape but I’m also limited to how much I can do.  I’ll keep the Schwinn 470 and the NordicTrac Elite in mind for when I finally decide to get mine.  The ProForm Cardio HIIT looks like it may put too much pressure on my joints.

      Hi, Margarette and thank you.

      I agree with you about the joints. Personally, I prefer using an elliptical trainer if my knees are making my a problem, as have happens because it is much softer than the treadmills.  And I like to idea to manage to use the arms more effective in the elliptical trainers. But at the same time, it is great to have the programme with more impact on my legs in the Treadmills

      I change a lot between this two machines because it is different benefits of them. and I like the A

    I go to the gym and have been training in an elliptical trainer, I really like it better than treadmills, there we can move our legs ahead and back, also we can cause move the arms of this two things I have been looking around for a while for an elliptical trainer to sue at home. I think one of my favorites must be the ProForm Cardio HIIT Elliptical Trainer, mainly because of the space. Thank you for this review 🙂

      Hi, Maria and thank you.

      I agree with you about the legs and arm.  In my opinion is the most critical pros with an elliptical trainer that you use your arms more than on a treadmill plus it is softer for your legs, individual knees.

    What is most fascinating about elliptical machine is getting the same amount of calories you can burn while running.This machine has really helped my grandmother a lot in reducing a lot of fat.It is very easy for her to use due to wonderful features it has. Most time , she manage to run up to 19 route with Schwinn 470 Elliptical. If you see my grandmother now compare to what she was 6months ago..oh my God ! You won’t believe ur eyes..lol.I love this article for this exposure

    Hello. I have always been a lover of the treadmill. When my husband and I go to workout, I head for the treadmill and he always heads for the elliptical!

    This is definitely an in-depth review of the top three in each category. As you said, the prices are a bit cheaper for the treadmills but I guess it really comes down to preference and for me I prefer the treadmills. I do like the fact that the Proform 505 CST Treadmill has a space saver design.

    Then again, maybe I should switch to the elliptical as they do sound kinder on the joints!

      Hi, Mary Ann and thank you.

      Yes, both machines have huge pros and some cons too when we compare this two things. Elliptical trainers are better for the joints, and you always move the complete body. But on the other hand, you can do more with the treadmill.

    Hello there. Thanks for sharing this information on the best elliptical trainers vs best treadmills. One of the things I find difficult is to make a selection from a wide range of products especially if I want to purchase online hence the importance of a good review about it. Thanks for the awesome recommendations.
