I think an elliptical can be part of a great workout program. Of course, you get out what you put into it.

Hello,

I am not familiar with the specific elliptical you mentioned; but, I think you can get a great cardio workout with an elliptical. I have an older one that still works well for me. You are right about it being easier on the joints. Most model give you the ability to adjust resistance so you can set it for a tougher workout when wanted.

Keep moving!

What do you think about elliptical? I'm considering purchasing an AFG 4.1AE Elliptical and wanted your opinion. I'm getting older and running is hard on the joints so I'd like to cross-train. Do you think elliptical are even a sufficient workout?
