Benefits of Using the Elliptical Machine


Bernie Mermelstein, owner and chief executive officer of MZ Berger & Co., has been working in the accessory industry for about four decades. His company deals with designing, marketing, licensing, as well as distributing of timepieces to different places in the world. In his free time, Bernie Mermelstein takes interest in physical activities, such as lifting weights and exercising on the elliptical machine.

An elliptical machine is a piece of motionless gym equipment that imitates walking, running, and hill climbing. Compared to treadmills, this machine has less impact on the joints while still providing benefits to one’s overall health condition.

In addition, the elliptical machine is believed to aid in regaining mobility in the hips. In fact, doctors suggest that patients incorporate an elliptical routine into the rehabilitation regimen following an ACL surgery. Research also shows elliptical training as an effective add-on treatment for people with traumatic brain injuries or those who’ve experienced a stroke.

Using an elliptical machine works out the entire body. In fact, one type of this machine can produce more than ten levels of resistance thereby strengthening the bones and their formation. With about 20 minutes to spare at least three times a week, using the elliptical can significantly increase a person’s stamina and cardiovascular endurance.
