There are a ton of reasons we tell ourselves we’re not going to workout. Not feeling well, not having enough time, or not having the right equipment. If you have joint problems, then you’re likely going to want to do low-impact workout sessions. Should you be in search of equipment that will help you reach your goals, then an elliptical trainer is likely ideal. The only problem is how big those things are.
If you want to downsize, and still get a workout that won’t cause damage to your joints, the Compact Elliptical Trainer is here for you. It has handle bars, non-slip pedals, and a tension setting so you can make things as easy or as difficult as you’d like. There is an LCD display that will show you strides per minute, total number of strides taken, time, and calories burned. This will only work for those who are 250 pounds or less, and would be great for home or office. It doesn’t have a huge range of motion, but it’s quite cheap in comparison to its larger relatives as it only costs $170.
