Burn More Calories on the Elliptical!

Boost Your Calorie Burn!



  1. WORK YOUR ENTIRE BODY: Choose a machine that requires both leg and arm work. You’ll activate more muscles while improving circulation, increasing calorie burn, and strengthening your abs, back and core!
  2. LOOK FOR AN “INTERVAL” SETTING: Intervals are challenging, but they also get the job done faster! Be efficient with your calorie burn; try an interval workout like the 30-20-10!
  3. BUMP UP THE INCLINE: There’s no need to be a speed demon to increase your calorie burn. After your warm-up, try increasing the incline to work harder without moving faster.
  4. STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE: If you’re just starting out, raise your resistance a level or two or pick up your speed for 20 seconds at a time. Any new shock to the body will help you get more out of your workout.
