60-Minute Elliptical Workout For Beginners

Start Strong, End Strong With This Beginner Elliptical Plan

Brand-new to a regular gym routine? There's no better cardio machine to get started with than the elliptical trainer: it's easy on the joints, but still gets your heart rate up. Once you're ready to move past quick 20- or 30-minute workouts and commit some serious time, try out this 60-minute elliptical workout with pyramid intervals. It's designed to push your body to the max and allow for periods of recovery, so you feel strong and confident from start to finish.
