Mix it up on the elliptical trainer

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- By fusing the motions of stair climbing and cross-country skiing, the elliptical trainer gives your thigh and gluteus (butt) muscles a rock-solid workout.

Hold on to the push-pull resistance handles and you'll also strengthen your upper body, including your back and arms. The gliding motion is much easier on your joints than running even while it burns fat.

Best of all, you can do it inside, rain or shine.
