Egaña, M. and Donne, B. ‘Physiological changes following a 12 week gym based stair-climbing, elliptical trainer and treadmill running program in females’ in Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness, 44, 2, (2004), pp 141 - 146

Despite the growing popularity of the elliptical trainer aerobic exercise modality the physiological changes induced following a training program using elliptical trainers remains unknown. Donne investigates the metabolic and cardiorespiratory improvements following a 12-week aerobic training program using elliptical trainer, treadmill or stair-climbing modalities. Findings reveal that in moderately active females similar physiological improvements were observed using stair-climber, elliptical trainer and treadmill running when training volume and intensity were equivalent.
