Welcome to Fitday willsoncharly!

I have a gazelle. I used it when I was recovering from a leg injury. It was no impact which was great. It's also fun!

There is not a built in resistance on mine but there are exercises that you can do on it for RT's.

Calories burned depend on your weight, effort and resistance.

For a 130 pound female going Max Vo2 for 60 minutes, you would burn approx 869 cals, the same as going Max Vo2 for 60 minutes on an elliptical.

For a 180 pound person going Max Vo2 for 60 minutes you would burn approx 1,203 cals.

The gazelle can't handle my Max Vo2. It isn't sturdy enough plus you would have to go for 60 minutes straight without stopping or slowing down. The little tracker that came with it is not accurate at all.

IMO the gazelle is much easier than the elliptical, but I see better results faster from my elliptical.
