    Yes, if it gets you out of puff and warms you up, you will be burning fat.

    I agree, anything that raises your heart rate burns fat and calories so it will definitely help you.

    Don't worry about building muscle. It is harder than you think. Enjoy your machine.

    I used to have an eliptical trainer too and think that it deffo helped me & my OH. I usually did 20 or 30 mins after work most nights and my OH would do the same while I was getting our tea ready. I would recommend that you gradually build up the time & resistance till you reach a level where your heart rate rises but you're not too cream crackered to even stand up. A gentle glow on the skin & increased breathing rate 3 or 4 times a week will be better for long-term interest than going full pelt once a week until you have a torrent running down your back and can't hold a conversation.

    It's an elliptical trainer, not eppilitical!

    Good luck with it - I'm still meaning to get on the one sitting in our conservatory!!

    Yeah a friend of mine, fitness guy, told me that it has lots of the benefits of the treadmill, but none of the jarring and hurting of the knees and joints. Yay!!
