Elliptical workout machine is a cheap and best option for fitness enthusiasts. It does not occupy too much space and still provides the benefits of a Cardio treadmill. It is just like cycling except at home and without transportation. It is very effective when you consistently do the workout without long breaks and if you can occupy your mind by way of music or movies while doing the workout it works best by keeping your mind off the strains of the muscles of the body. For a moderate training only learn to push the time a little further than doing fast cycling to strain much in the beginning itself to loose interest. Twenty minutes to Forty five minutes workout according to your time slot will do wonders only when done consistently everyday.
