Not all cross trainers are the same. In our range of fitness equipment you will find many different versions and designs. In addition to the classic crosstrainers, there are also steppers, airwalkers and our Cardio Strider.
The round movement on our cross trainers such as theor the . The is ideal for smaller spaces. After training, it can be folded up for compact storage with a space saving of up to 50%.
The advantage of theis the particularly intensive use of the gluteal muscles. A firm buttocks is guaranteed with regular sessions! Due to the flat stepping motion, training on a stepper is somewhat less gentle on the joints than on a conventional cross trainer.

Unique in its design is our. This innovative piece of sports equipment is a kind of cross-trainer bicycle. Here you sit comfortably during the workout, just like on an exercise bike. Thanks to the gripper arms, you train your upper body at the same time.
Crosstrainer versus elliptical trainer - what is the difference?
The difference between a crosstrainer and acategory link is mainly in the placement of the flywheel. On the crosstrainer, the flywheel is behind the user, whereas on the elliptical trainer, the flywheel is in front. Both machines offer an effective and joint-friendly whole-body workout that also trains the upper body.
Who is the crosstrainer suitable for?
The crosstrainer is suitable for anyone who wants to improve their endurance and do a workout that is easy on the joints. Whether beginner or advanced, the crosstrainer offers a suitable difficulty level for every fitness level. Due to the guided motion sequence and the low risk of injury, physiotherapists and doctors also recommend the crosstrainer as a training device.
Right cross-trainer training for optimal results
In order to make the workout on the cross trainer as pleasant as possible, there are a few points to bear in mind. Always train in a pain-free area and with an individually adapted level of exertion!
The right posture
The movement on the cross trainer is intuitive. Place your feet straight on the treads. Place your hands at shoulder height. Depending on the model, you can vary between movable and rigid arm grips. Tighten your abdomen and make yourself tall. Always pull your shoulder blades back and down. Now you are ready to start. Always keep an upright posture. Your hip bones and knees should point straight ahead at all times. If you find this difficult at first, activate your core muscles even more.
The training sequence
Always start your endurance training for 5 to 10 minutes at a low intensity. The warm-up prepares the cardiovascular system and the muscles for the upcoming load. Then increase the resistance in a controlled manner. If you have a specific target heart rate, then increase the load until you have reached the set heart rate limit. After the workout is before the workout! That's why it's important to end every workout with a cool-down. Take at least 5 minutes to lower your intensity and heart rate. This will increase your ability to recover. Newcomers should train for 20 to 30 minutes on 2 to 3 days per week at the beginning. Experienced athletes can then gradually increase the frequency, duration and, in the last step, the intensity of the cross-trainer training.
Motivating course programmes with your crosstrainer

Endurance training: How effective is training on the cross trainer?
The standing, upright training posture on the cross trainer has the advantage that, in contrast to seated endurance machines, more muscles are used. The active whole-body movement optimally challenges your cardiovascular system. This makes the cross trainer one of the most effective and at the same time most joint-friendly variants of endurance training.
What is the optimal heart rate when training with a cross trainer?
The optimal heart rate depends on your training goal and your individual requirements. For moderate beginner training, slightly lower heart rates are sufficient. Professionals need to train more intensively in order to achieve an increase in performance. The following applies: The more trained you are, the better your cardiovascular system functions. It is always important to pay attention to your maximum heart rate. You can roughly calculate this with the following rule of thumb: 220-lifetime=maximum pulse. Based on this, you can then calculate corresponding heart rate ranges for different training effects. When training according to heart rate, you should always keep an eye on resting heart rate, maximum heart rate and the heart rate ranges. With the help of integrated hand pulse sensors on the handles, you can easily check your heart rate. For an even more accurate measurement, we recommend using anor . So listen to your heart and reach your goals even faster!
Buyer's guide: Find the right Crosstrainer for you
When choosing a cross trainer, you should consider various factors, such as your fitness level, training frequency, special features such as Bluetooth or fitness programmes, maximum height and weight of the user, your budget and whether the cross trainer should be foldable. Think carefully about your requirements for your training device to find the right crosstrainer for you.
Exercising on a cross trainer is an effective way to improve your endurance, burn calories and improve your health. With a quality home cross trainer, you can work out comfortably and conveniently to achieve your fitness goals.
Our crosstrainer recommendation for beginners
If you are just getting into endurance training, then the or with intuitive operation is exactly what you need. Intuitive training computers show you all the important workout parameters. So you always have an overview and can control your training in a targeted way.
After you have set a target pulse, the automatically adjusts the resistance when the frequency is exceeded. The design is also exceptionally ergonomic. Perfect for carefree and health-oriented fitness training.
The HAMMER impresses with its technical details. Enjoy a training computer with a large computer display, Bluetooth connection, transport wheels and much more. With the help of modern fitness apps, your workout will be so exciting that you'll forget all about the effort. The magnetic brake system ensures even resistance and a quiet workout.
Our crosstrainer recommendation for higher fitness goals
For more demanding athletes we recommend our extensive FINNLO crosstrainersor . The versatile equipment, which also meets high demands without any problems, should be emphasised.
The cross trainer's wide range of different fitness programmesand a wide load range are guaranteed to make anyone sweat. From downhill and uphill runs to interval units or fat-burn profiles, there's something here for all tastes.
Theis our "sports car" of the successful Loxon series. Precisely controlled fitness training from 20-400 watts, blue hi-tech computer display, 20 kg flywheel mass and eddy current brake technology of the highest quality distinguish this top class HA crosstrainer. The treads are also adjustable here and can therefore be adapted to any body size and stride length. The integrated fitness test shows your progress and makes success measurable.
Our crosstrainer recommendation for smaller flats
You don't have much space but still don't want to miss out on your full-body workout. Then opt for the foldable crosstrainer. The FINNLOcan be folded in no time thanks to the quick-fold technology and can be stored in a space-saving way after training. In addition to a stable construction, the FINNLO CF70 BT is characterised by Bluetooth connection and multimedia entertainment. With varied training programmes, you can adjust the resistance individually.
What should I look for when buying a cross trainer?
When buying a cross trainer, there are some parameters you should know about. Depending on individual preferences, certain parameters can then be weighted more or less heavily.
The flywheel mass
The flywheel mass and the ball bearing of the crosstrainer are decisive for a pleasant rotation. A particularly smooth movement is achieved when the so-called reversal point is overcome with as little effort as possible. This is the case with a flywheel of 16 kg or more. Premium crosstrainers with an even higher flywheel mass offer you a unique feeling of training on clouds. However, the smooth running also depends on other factors such as the ball bearing. Crosstrainers with a slightly lower flywheel mass also offer great movement dynamics if the other parameters are right.
High-quality precision ball bearings guarantee maximum smoothness and a long service life of the device even with frequent use. Less expensive crosstrainer variants are equipped with simpler metal or plastic bushings on the pivot axles. These bushings also serve their purpose.
The braking system and resistance adjustment
How precisely you can adjust the resistance varies depending on the model. If it is important for you to train at a specific wattage, look for the DIN EN 957-1/9 classification. Only crosstrainers with very precise and speed-independent power control fall into this higher class. These crosstrainers with eddy current or induction brakes have particularly fine resistance adjustment. With the magnetic brake system, the flywheel is braked by a permanent magnet. The desired resistance is controlled with the help of the wattage values on the training computer. You should therefore think about how finely you want to adjust and change your level of difficulty.
In order to train healthily in the long term, the ergonomics of the cross trainer should fit your body proportions. The length of an elliptical movement on a crosstrainer is called stride length. The longer the stride length is in proportion to the step height, the easier it is on the joints. Taller people need a correspondingly longer stride length. If you share the crosstrainer with several athletes, you should always use the measurements of the tallest person as a guide.
The distance between the step plates
The distance between the two footplates is an important criterion for good ergonomics. Therefore, make sure that the distance between the tread plates is small. With the FINNLO Loxon series, for example, this distance is only 16 cm. This guarantees a particularly hip-friendly endurance training. All crosstrainers from HAMMER or FINNLO have smaller step plate distances than most standard crosstrainers available on the market.

Is the crosstrainer useful for home use?
The crosstrainer is an ideal home trainer if you want to exercise regularly and easily at home and increase your performance.
What are the effects of training on the cross trainer?
Regular sessions on the full-body machine help you to increase your endurance, improve your fat metabolism, strengthen your leg muscles and increase your fitness in everyday life.
Is the cross trainer suitable for weight loss?
If you want to effectively reduce your body fat percentage, then the crosstrainer is exactly the right machine for you. By using all the major muscle groups you will achieve a very high calorie consumption depending on the selected resistance and workout duration.
Can I train on the cross trainer when pregnant?
If you are pregnant, please check with your doctor whether you are allowed to exercise on the cross trainer. Due to the full-body movement, the level of exertion is significantly higher than on a bicycle ergometer, for example.
Can I train on the cross trainer if I have joint problems or after an injury?
The rule is: only exercise in a comfortable range. If your doctor gives you the GO for workouts on the cross trainer, then there is nothing to stop you from doing moderate amounts of exercise. Compared to a treadmill, a cross trainer puts much less strain on your joints.
Treadmill or crosstrainer - how do the space requirements of the machines compare?
Both a cross trainer and a treadmill are quite large fitness machines for home use. The exact dimensions depend on the model. However, cross trainers tend to be a little shorter, but slightly taller than treadmills. If you have limited space, simply opt for a folding machine.
Cross trainer versus rower - which machines are recommended?
The big advantage of rowing machines and cross trainers is the continuous whole-body movement. This perfectly counteracts a sedentary everyday life and ensures better spinal health. With a rowing machine you can train your back in a more targeted way. A cross trainer, on the other hand, offers you the possibility of a more intensive leg workout.Edit answer here.
