A reader seat a question about why her toes go numb on an elliptical machine.  I will admit that I traded in an elliptical machine for a treadmill years ago for this very reason.

One way to alleviate the numbness is to lower the incline.  Doing this relieves the bend in your toes.  This bend puts pressure on the bones toward the front of your foot.

If you are concerned that your cardio input won’t be as challenging, try increasing your intensity by increasing your intensity by increasing your speed or your resistance.

Elliptical machines are an effective way to burn calories and increase cardio endurance, and a few changes to posture, elevation of the ramps and spend can help you feel the burn and be comfortable.
