One of the most innovative pieces of cardio equipment on the market today that you should consider for your gym is the HCI PhysioStep RXT-1000 Recumbent Elliptical Cross Trainer. This machine takes the elliptical machine but puts a recumbent bike feeling on it as you'll be seated while performing the motion.
This is a great option for those users who do suffer from knee or back pain to an extremely high level as they will get all the benefits that the elliptical has to offer without any stress on their knee or hip joints.
This machine is great for your gym because it will offer users both an upper body and lower body workout at the same time, should they choose to use both the handrails and foot pedals, or can be customized to work just the upper or lower body workout on their own.
In addition to this, the machine will also offer a great core workout to your users, which is something that many gym members will be seeking.
Built to provide high levels of comfort and with the inclusion of a heart rate monitor, this will have everything that your members are looking for.
