The top-of-the-line Gazelle ELITE delivers both aerobic and resistance training, giving you all the benefits of stretching, walking, running, cross-country skiing, aerobic dancing and resistance training without jarring impacts or damaging movements to your body. The ultimate low-impact workout, Gazelle ELITE is great for all fitness levels from beginner to advanced fitness enthusiasts. Gazelle engages every major muscle group using a combination of body weight and machine resistance to provide a great total body workout. Changing workout positions, allows users to target specific muscles. For example, lifting the heels off the pedals during a workout works calf muscles. Crouching down requires users to push up with the quadriceps. Leaning forward and using more arm than leg effort to move the machine requires the use of more biceps and chest muscles. Leaning backward in the machine and relying primarily on the legs works the hamstrings and buttocks. Changing this exercise by using less leg effort and moving the elbows outward works the lats and shoulders more. Standing sideways on the machines allows users to perform adduction and abduction exercises to work both the inner and outer leg.
