Pedals are disposed not far from each other that are good for hip rotation and reduce the pressure on the lower part of the back. With training some muscles, there are lower load rates and more effective than applying for training other pieces of equipment, for example, treadmills or stationary bikes. These machines influence the metabolism processes in the positive way. With fitness using these machines, there is an effect of lightness.
