The best part is that all you have to do is hit a button and the machine guides you through the rest of your workout. No thinking required. Okay, so there are few other steps involved; you will need to add some information like your level setting and time duration, but the machine will guide you through that as well.

1. Treadmill

Program – HILLS

Why this program ROCKS! – The fluctuating hills challenge different muscles in your legs as the incline increases and decreases, and it mimics outdoor running more than simply running on a flat, consistent, grade.


2. Elliptical

Program – AEROBICS –Trainer or X Train Aerobics

Why this program ROCKS! – If you are someone who gets bored during your cardio workouts, this program is your cure. The “Trainer or X Train Aerobics” mode constantly has you change your direction from forward to backwards, using your upper body and going hands-free, as well as having you speed up and slow down. There is no time for boredom with this sweat inducing program!

3. Stair/Step Mill

Program – Intervals

Why this program ROCKS! – Interval training is widely regarded as one of the best ways to burn calories, shed body fat and define your muscles. Combining this technique with the challenge of infinite stairs equates to a leaner and more defined you!
