A treadmill is a gym equipment that is generally used for walking, running and climbing without having to move around a lot. It is a stationary machine that promotes indoor cardio workout. It comes with a range of speed and incline settings and can be stationed at home too.
Similar to a treadmill, an elliptical is a stationary exercise machine used to walk, run or stair climb, without putting too much pressure on the joints. This makes the equipment low-impact. It involves a running movement with stair climbing motion which targets the leg muscles, glutes, hamstrings, quads and hip flexors.
