EQUIPMENT SPOTLIGHT – Elliptical Trainer

This staple of Joplin gyms and throughout the world first entered our view in the early 1990s. Research began in the 1980s and was a natural evolution from the NordicTrack and other ski machines that offered the best cardio exercising ever witness by many cardiologists. The elliptical trainer was a less impactful way to gain the benefits and add additional protection of our fragile joints.

Various models offer different resistance, timing, and options for timing every workout. You can maintain a level workout or vary your resistance for High-Intensity Interval Training. Recent studies have proven HIIT is beneficial to cognitive control and working memory capacity. Even more so than computer games and trivia quizzes.

Our elliptical machines offer you an outlet for your plug-in earbuds to hear one of many landline cable television programming options. Or tune in to our WiFi with your favorite device and binge away on a guilty pleasure while burning away the calories.

HIIT studies have concluded 3 days of HIIT per week for two weeks only could double the aerobic capacity for participants. That means you could be one the elliptical half as long with the same results. Or, even better, you will get twice the results with the same effort!

Elliptical trainers have been researched to conclude the same physiological results between them and treadmills. However, the resistance settings on an elliptical allow for a more robust workout conclusion. A larger variety of muscle groups benefit and more calories can be burned without noticing any more exertion.

Remember to talk to your doctor before beginning any exercise regiment. Take a friend to take notes for you. Write down any fitness questions you have ahead of time because we get nervous and forget things sometimes. Then take their rules and your options and bring them into the best of all the Joplin gyms, Colaw Fitness.

A good diet is an essential partner for your fitness success. Our proprietary dietary program will help you jump start your goals and grab on to the motivation you need to get to work. Ask us all about it the next time you are driving by.

We are affordable, clean, caring, and so much more to offer than the other Joplin gyms. We have items you might forget like bottles and bags and beverages. There is a full array of tanning and bronzing products to choose from. We really want you to give us a call right now at 417-437-9345 because if it’s too good to be true, there must be a catch. Let us prove to you that not everything you see on the internet is fake news. The real thing is here and you are worth it.
