A Mini Elliptical in Action
Here is an example of a mini elliptical in action.
This mini elliptical trainer, the Stamina InMotion Compact Strider is positioned as a solution for those who "are pressed for time, space, or both".
You can use it sitting or standing and will provide a cardio workout and tone calves, thighs and glutes.
As with all elliptical machines minimized jarring impact on joints makes for a safe and comfortable workout.
The level of resistance is controlled via an adjustable tension system, and there's a monitor to keep track of the "distance" you cover.
Once you've finished, pick up the unit and pack it away.
