First ellipticals appeared at the end of the last century. Since then they have settled in gyms and conquered our homes. Initially an elliptical machine had only one modification and it was a rear drive model by Precor. This cross-trainer simulated walking, running, climbing workout substituting average bikes and treadmills. Nowadays we have front drive, improved rear drive examples as well as developing center drive and hybrids models.
To move indeed means to live, and no matter if you are going in for sports in the gym or have a home-based one equipped with an elliptical machine. Still, there are some evident reasons why people usually skip physical activity, namely weather conditions, health limitations connected with joint problems, lack of time for workout or absence of equipment when you need it.
