Different sports generate different levels of stress and strain on the body. This is the reason the NordicTrack Ski Machine was developed. It simulates the motion of cross-country skiing, which is a large calorie-burning activity that puts less strain on the body than higher-impact activities such as jogging or aerobics.
The Machine Basics
The NordicTrack Ski Machine is a very popular home fitness machine. It is the father of all elliptical trainers that became popular in the 1980s. Your legs go through the forward and backward gliding motion of cross-country skiing while your arms alternately move back and forth. It is considered a full-body workout that improves cardiovascular fitness. You are able to adjust resistance to improve your workout and burn more calories.
Using a NordicTrack Ski Machine can help you lose weight but it is not a miracle machine. A combination of diet and exercise is necessary for long-term weight loss. A 150-pound woman can expect to burn approximately 300 calories on the NordicTrack during a half-hour workout. Eliminating 300 calories daily will help you lose approximately 1 pound per week. You need to burn 3,500 calories a week to lose 1 pound of fat. That's a total of 500 calories a day. Exercising with the NordicTrack and modifying your diet will allow you to achieve that goal.
