I don’t know a thing about you, but if you’re anything like me, you know there’s a ton of aerobic exercise equipment on the market these days. Many of these products are advertised on TV, pitched by celebrity spokespeople.
One of these products is the Gazelle Edge, promoted by fitness celeb Tony Little. In this article, we’ll examine some of the key features and benefits of this product.
First of all, the Gazelle Edge is an “exercise glider,” not a treadmill or elliptical machine. It does not include any motorized parts or high-tech components. It is a simply made, “what you see is what you get” fitness product.
One of the key points about this glider is the full range of motion that the split suspension design provides. It allows you to vary your speed at will, from a plodding walk, to a sprint.
Because your feet rest on non-skid platforms, it’s a low-impact activity. This is a good benefit to consider if you suffer from joint problems and find walking or running on a treadmill or pavement difficult.
Although the rolled steel frame of the glider appears lightweight, it is quite sturdy. It can handle a maximum weight capacity of two hundred and fifty pounds, which makes this product usable by a wide variety of individuals.
One thing to keep in mind, however, is that you’ll need about three feet of clearance on both the front and back sides of this machine. Factor this with the dimensions of the machine itself, and you’ll need a fair amount of space to use the glider.
Want to know your speed and calories burned? The Gazelle Edge includes a small monitor that tracks these metrics as you work out, although many users have expressed concerns about the accuracy of the device when it concerns expended calories.
Finally, this product does not offer variable resistance levels. It is fun to use, and can increase your heart rate and help you break a sweat, but it is not suggested for progressive endurance training.
Nevertheless, if you’re seeking a budget-priced product that can offer a fair, low-impact aerobic workout, the Gazelle Edge is worth a look.
