5. Elliptical Trainer

Way more interesting than a treadmill, an elliptical trainer can help you burn up to 600 calories per hour and a whopping 11% more if you don’t mind going backward instead of just pushing forward. Not bad at all! Grab those handles and let your arms share the work in order to exercise more muscle groups and get the most out of it and don’t worry if you don’t manage to break the gym’s record on your first use – when used right, these babies will really make you work hard for it.
