More recently, treadmills are not used to harness power, but as exercise machines for running or walking in one place. Rather than the user powering the mill, the machine provides a moving platform with a wide conveyor belt driven by an electric motor or a flywheel. The belt moves to the rear, requiring the user to walk or run at a speed matching that of the belt. The rate at which the belt moves is the rate of walking or running. Thus, the speed of running may be controlled and measured. The more expensive, heavy-duty versions are motor-driven (usually by an electric motor). The simpler, lighter, and less expensive versions passively resist the motion, moving only when walkers push the belt with their feet. The latter are known as manual treadmills.
Elliptical machines are low-impact, meaning they're easier on joints and the lower back than other exercise machines. They're ideal for anyone just starting out or recovering from an injury. Hardcore fitness buffs can also benefit from an elliptical machine as it offers a great cross-training option, when the weather isn't cooperating or when you need a low-impact workout on your recovery day.
