Often called Elliptical Machines or Elliptical Traners, ellipticals work both the upper and lower body in ways that elevate the heart rate, instead of building muscles. The name "elliptical" comes from the shape of the motion of the legs in using the machine. The natural motion for the legs is not exactly circular, but elliptical. Ellipticals are the fastest growing kind of gym equipment and the second most popular after treadmills.
