The Procor Elliptical machines are built for commercial use, and because their price reflects that, many people will only be able to use them at the gym and not at their homes. The website for the Procor Elliptical equipment has plenty of information for the consumer who wants to research and make sure his or her purchases are very informed. A major drawback to this machine is the lack of anaerobic exercise options, as aerobic exercise is only half of the battle. The anaerobic exercise is the body’s only defense against muscle deterioration.
