What are the benefits of exercising with an elliptical machine?
Compared with other fitness equipment, the benefits of using the elliptical machine for fitness are quite many:

People with problems recover.
Prevention and treatment of diseases. Elliptical exercise is an aerobic exercise, which can train cardiopulmonary function and help prevent and treat cardiovascular disease. Because it is a whole body exercise, it can also help relieve periarthritis and diabetes.

If the elderly can stick to the elliptical machine for slow exercise, they can increase their leg strength and avoid walking and falling due to inflexible legs and feet in the future.
