Elliptical instructions
Step-by-step instructions
1
Step onto the elliptical trainer and place your feet flat in the large pedal areas.
2
Grasp the handles lightly with your fingers, not the palm of your hand to avoid blisters.
3
Look forward and keep your spine straight. Do not lean forward or back as this can lead to improper form.
4
Use your entire foot, not just your toes. This promotes balance and works out a broader range of muscles.
5
Start to move your feet in a forward motion, mimicking all the motions of running, walking or hiking.
