Foot Placement

Elliptical machines come in different sizes, so make sure your feet are comfortably placed in the middle of the pedals. When you push your feet forward against the front edge of the pedals this can cause discomfort and pain, which can prevent you from finishing. The same goes when you stay up on the balls of your feet, which can cause added pressure. Also, make sure you don’t lean forward or upward and you maintain a proper upright position.
