What is the difference between different types of treadmills, cross trainers etc.?
There are many differences between pieces of fitness equipment that most people don’t see straight away.
Here is a brief overview:
You can jog on treadmills regardless of the weather. Many treadmills offer different functions, such as manual training or interval training.
Cross trainers are also classics among fitness equipment. Cross trainers simulate an elliptical running movement. The arms are also included in the harmonious motion sequence. This type of exercise is particularly easy on the joints.
Ergometers are pieces of equipment that accurately measure and display your sporting performance in watts. They are different from simpler exercise bikes in this respect and are often used in rehabilitation.
Exercise bikes, however, are best suited to exercising at home. You can exercise at home regardless of the weather and in a time-saving way whenever you want. Exercise bikes are the most popular pieces of equipment for home use.
Rowing machines simulate rowing on the water and are particularly suited to rowers who want to maintain their performance level during the off-season. However, other athletes also use these pieces of equipment because rowing machines are well-suited to endurance training and at the same time, strengthen all of the body’s important muscle groups. The results: a toned stomach, a strong back and healthy posture.
