Treadmills simulate more closely than elliptical trainers the natural movement of walking, jogging and running. You'll burn more calories using a treadmill because extra effort is required to propel your body forward to keep pace with the revolving belt. Compared to elliptical trainers, treadmills provide a better weight-bearing workout, which can help strengthen bones and muscles. However, elliptical workouts are low impact, making them a good choice for people with joint problems.
Belfast and Maston-- that it had deviated from its course from some unknown cause, and had not reached its destination; but that it had passed near enough to be retained by the lunar attraction; that its rectilinear movement had been changed to a circular one, and that following an elliptical orbit round the star of night it had become its satellite.

In 2010, a study of 9 males and 9 females were chosen to exercise at the same RPE on the treadmill or elliptical and found that energy expenditure and oxygen consumption were the same in the two forms of exercise equipment. Thomas Altena, a professor of nutritional and exercise physiology at the University of Missouri-Columbia, measured oxygen retention, lactic acid build-up, heart rate, and perceived rate of exertion to compare treadmills and elliptical trainers, finding that the "physiological responses associated with elliptical exercise were nearly identical to treadmill exercise". However, it is important that the resistance set on the elliptical machine is at a relatively high setting, depending on the user.
