Safer for knees?

Ellipticals are gentler on your knees and joints in general. Since your foot stays connected to the elliptical pedal at all times, there's little to no impact or jarring with each step. Many ellipticals also include adjustable pedal height so you can modify the angle of the pedal based on your height (we highly recommend looking for a model with this feature - it reduces toe numbness that often occurs with elliptical use). Ellipticals are also quieter - but tend to take up a bit of space, so verify your ceiling height, and make sure you have enough area in your room.

Hybrid ellipticals allow for varied movement on the pedals - you can move them up and down like a stair stepper, or front to back like treadmill, or in a circular motion like an elliptical. This feature provides more movement patterns but can feel a bit unstable if you're not used to it. You can get a great workout on either a standard elliptical or a hybrid model.
