Commercial Elliptical Exercise Equipment Requires Durability, Options
By Kevin Urban
It can be difficult enough to select an elliptical machine to meet the demands of a single fitness trainer. The need for progressing levels of difficulty is strong simply to keep a single person's interest high. Imagine then how tough it can be for a gym owner or manager to select the best commercial elliptical exercise equipment for a number of different customers.
With each client requiring something unique in their exercise program, the need for versatility is high on the commercial end. Elliptical fitness machines, fortunately, by their sheer design offer challenging yet fun workouts, but built-in features can really make one machine stand out over another – especially in the commercial arena.
Those looking to buy commercial exercise equipment should keep a few things in mind:
Durability is a No. 1 priority. It makes no sense to buy a machine that won't hold up to a number of clients using it each day for their fitness routines. Construction must be solid to ensure the equipment will survive more than a few exercise sessions. Frames must be built to handle extreme weight capacity to ensure an elliptical trainer will endure the rigors of gym placement.
Adjustable features on elliptical equipment should be considered, too. It's a simple fact the marathon runner can handle and likely will want more challenging exercising routines that involves higher resistances than someone just starting out with a fitness routine. The more adjustable features a commercial machine provides the better. Look for incline, pedal position, resistance and more in this regard.
Programming: Ellipticals that provide a lot of different built in programs will help a machine automatically adjust to clients who need different levels of challenge. Variety is key for keeping a person's interest in exercising and motivation levels at their peak.
With some industry-leading manufacturers making commercial ellipticals, finding machines to fit your clients' needs might take some research, but it won't be impossible.
