The elliptical is easy to use, though it may seem a little strange to start with. You should stand upright, not lean on the frame, and just move the pedals as you would a bicycle. It goes in a set motion. You can change the resistance so it feels good to you, but isn't so strong that you get tired in five minutes. You can get somebody at a gym or a sporting goods store to demonstrate correct technique for you. If you buy an elliptical, read the instruction manual carefully.
