Tony Little's Gazelle Edge Instructions

Tony Little's Gazelle Edge offers a low-impact lower and upper body workout. The foam-covered handlebars provide comfort and the extra-wide foot platforms offer stability. It's smooth and quiet and can accommodate users up to 250 lbs. Once you step on the equipment, you can start moving immediately to begin your workout. When you want to progress between different gliding exercises, you can increase your stride or the gliding motion without stopping.

  1. Stand behind your Gazelle Edge and place your hands on the back bars. Place and center each of your feet on one foot pedal. Place your hands on the front cross bar for support.

  2. Stand upright and move your feet back and forth in a smooth, comfortable gliding motion. Start out slowly.

  3. Lengthen your stride as it feels comfortable to widen the gliding motion.

  4. Bend your knees and lengthen your stride while gliding to perform a low gliding motion.

  5. Lift your heels and rise up on your toes to perform a high glide. Keep your heels lifted throughout the gliding.

  6. Lean forward while gliding until you feel more weight in your arms. Fully extend your arms, alternating between arms.

  7. Progress to a jogging motion while gliding. Bring your arms to your sides and pump them as if jogging.

  8. Place your hands in different positions to vary the intensity and control if the exercise works the upper or lower body. Set your hands on the front crossbar during the beginning gliding exercises. Grip the handles in the middle for more equal work between the upper and lower body. Place your hands low on the handle grips to decrease your upper body work.
