I don't think it's your weight, but I could be wrong about that. My toes and my fingers sometimes go all tingly and I think it could be poor circulation. Maybe your shoes are tied too tight? I know that when it's hot and I'm jogging, my fingers and toes go numb and sometimes during other cardio workouts. Once my workout is over the numbness wears off for me too.

I'd check with a doctor, to make sure it's nothing serious.

I get that too on elliptical machines. I started wearing athletic slide type sandals when I am on the elliptical. That way I can wiggle my toes easier and shift my foot around a bit. It has helped me a lot.

I get that when I'm on my bike too long

VANHALENFAN - The same exact thing happens to me. It's only on the elliptical too. I can do all sorts of other cardio workouts and I'm fine. Strange!

Do you tend to use the same machine for a long period of time? That might be doing it.

I've seen this posted numerous times, so it's not just you. See if the elliptical has an adjustment for the stride or for the angle of the arc. If it does, play around with that to see if it helps. If not, you may just have to ditch the elliptical and try something else.

No matter what sneakers I wear, I have a problem with my toes going numb during cardio workouts (especially the Elliptical, which is my favorite cardio exercise.) I have bought 2 new sneakers and this is still occurring. It happened with my old ones too. Does anyone else have this problem? Could it just be due to my weight (230's)? It usually happens about a half hour into the workout. I do an hour, typically. There's no pain involved, it's just very annoying! It eases up immediately after the workout is over. Any ideas or recommendations?

TIA! emoticon
