I prefer the treadmill simply because I feel it's easier to push myself. I find it easier to just bump the speed up .1 or .2 and then go. On the elliptical I pay too much attention to the distance/speed and quit at a certain calorie/milage point instead of the time.

I like the treadmill, but find i burn a lot more calories on an Eliptical and it is easy on the joints. I can get 300-350 calories burned in 20-25 minutes depending on resistance.

I love my elliptical. I find it easier on the joints than running and since I am starting out heavy I want to build up to a treadmill but not destroy my joints. My goal is to run the Turkey Trot 5k on thanksgiving in Michigan so cross your fingers for me!

I have an elliptical in my spare room and it is great! You burn about 350 calories on 30 minutes on level 1...way better workout than a treadmill at a beginning level...also its a lot easier on your joints and it works your lower and upper body...

I wish my gym would start Zumba classes. I've heard so much about them and would LOVE to try a class out. :)

I prefer Treadmill. I had a bad experience with an elliptical machine, so will never use one again.

I love my elliptical! Mostly because I feel like I'm working out my upper and lower body without any foot or knee pain and when I'm done I feel awesome!

I love them both for different reasons. I am falling in love with running so I love my treadmill but to break up the monotony I love the elliptical. If I had to choose I'd say treadmill only because of my love for running. :)

Treadmill! I feel so strong when I'm running.

I wish I had an elliptical or treadmill! But I definitely prefer elliptical. It feels more challenging to me. I think it's fun too.
On treadmills I tend to just walk, walk at a fast pace but I don't like running much, so treadmills don't seem to give me the workout I want.

I have an elliptical in our storage area because right now, I literally have nowhere to put it. Between the construction in the garage and the lack of room upstairs, we will not have room until the garage is finished. :(

For you girls that use either machine, which do you prefer? Elliptical or treadmill? Why?
