Cardio Equipment

Cardiovascular (or cardio) exercise is crucial for heart health, weight loss, and overall fitness. If you’re interested in improving your health, either mental or physical, you can’t do better than  using cardio equipment. There are a range of potential benefits to your overall mental and physical health. Each form of cardio has its own strengths and weaknesses, and the appropriate equipment to go with it. With a variety of different cardio machines like treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes, and stair climbers all offering different programs and intensities, we truly believe there is something for everyone.

What are the different types of cardio equipment?

There are a variety of cardio machines available, all of which target the cardiovascular system in slightly different ways. Each equipment type has pros and cons regarding muscle engagement, impact level, and space requirements. The right cardio machine will depend on your personal preferences and fitness goals.


Treadmills are a staple in many homes and gyms due to their incredible versatility. They can be used for walking, running, for Fartlek or interval training, or as part of a high-intensity (HIIT) workout. Used properly, they can help improve cardiovascular health, burn calories and build lower body strength. Treadmills are also a solid alternative to running outside, as they’re all-weather worthy, and they allow the walker or runner to control their speed and incline at all times.

Exercise bikes

From upright to recumbent styles, there is an exercise bike to suit every type of athlete. Exercise bikes offer a low-impact cardio workout that’s easy on the joints. They’re great for boosting heart health and toning your lower body. And many have the technology to link up to popular cycling apps. This lets you race the road with other athletes around the world, all from the comfort of your own home.

Elliptical trainers

Elliptical trainers are great for offering a lower-intensity workout while still targeting key parts of both the upper and lower body. Elliptical trainers remain perennially popular, as they mimic the natural movement of running but without the level of impact. In addition to less impact on your joints, cross trainers or ellipticals are almost impossible to fall off, further reducing injury risk.

Rowing machines

Rowing machines offer a comprehensive full-body workout and are surprisingly simple to get the hang of. There are several different styles, ranging from those that create resistance using air to those who force you to push back against water in a tank. Other great things about rowing machines is that they are suitable for all fitness levels, don’t require any additional equipment and can even improve your posture.


Steppers (or step machines) offer a focused workout on your lower body, particularly the glutes, thighs, and calves. As well as being able to set your speed and levels, the simple action of a stepper lends itself to incorporating additional exercises into your workout. You can target your upper body with resistance work or try teaming your steps with some hand weights. As well as burning the calories, step machines have the advantage of being compact and easy to incorporate into even the tightest of spaces. 

Choosing the right cardio equipment

Choosing the right cardio equipment depends on several factors, including your fitness goals, available space, and budget. For instance, a rowing machine might be a good choice if you want to improve your overall body strength and have enough space. Meanwhile, if you’re looking for something more versatile, a treadmill will provide more workout options. For those with less space, a stepper could be ideal, particularly one of the more compact models. Always consider the benefits of each type of equipment and how they align with your goals.

What should you consider when buying cardio equipment?

Cardio equipment is usually an investment purchase, so it’s worth really considering how your purchase is going to fit into your life. You must consider factors such as how it physically fits into your home, what you can afford to pay, your personal fitness goals and how you can incorporate it into your daily routine. Beyond that, you should also take time to learn about things like the features of different brands and models as well as the warranty they come with. At Orbit Fitness, we’re always ready to assist you in finding the perfect equipment that suits your needs.


It’s important to make sure the equipment fits comfortably in your home. This can be done by measuring your available space before purchasing.

Look for features that will make your workouts more enjoyable and effective. This could include adjusting resistance levels, built-in workout programs or apps, and heart rate monitors. The friendly Orbit Fitness staff are always happy to talk you through the features of a specific piece of cardio equipment.
