The construction of a cross trainer with a bicycle is the subject of this study. We employ the same approach for shorter distances by using the cross trainer as an exercise machine that allows us to run and walk at the same time. By the idea of a cross trainer, the motion of the machine is produced by transferring human energy to the machine. This device can be utilized by people for exercise as well as for shorter distance transport. It is unnecessary to set up a specific time for their exercise when using this equipment. The movement of the machine is controlled by the same action as on the cross trainer. The machine advances as we (the operator) walk by utilizing the chains.An training machine that combines the low-impact elliptical action with the pedaling motion of a stationary bicycle is a cross trainer with a bicycle function. This is a thorough workout that works the upper and lower bodies. It is appropriate for persons who wish to increase their cardiovascular fitness, lose weight, and tone their muscles because it offers a wide range of motion and muscle activation. It is a common option for folks looking for a low-impact and effective workout and is available in gyms, fitness facilities, as well as some houses.
A bicycle is a single-track, pedal-powered, human-powered vehicle with two wheels mounted to a frame, one in behind of the other. Karl von Drais, a German aristocrat who created the "running machine" in 1817, is credited with creating the first bicycle. With the development of the chain drive in the 1860s, the design was enhanced to allow for increased efficiency and speed. Since then, bicycles have gained popularity as a means of transportation, entertainment, and sport.Elliptical trainers are, and have been for a long time, a very versatile and well-liked piece of fitness equipment. They enable one to perform full-body cardiac workout without subjecting their muscles and joints to undue stress. As a result, users who prefer a low-impact or high-intensity workout benefit from this piece of equipment.By creating the low effort run cycle, high performance can be achieved with little effort. This bike is more stable than it appears to be and is simple to ride. Equivalent balance is needed to ride this kind of cycle as it is to pedal a standard cycle.
II. PROBLEM DEFENIATION
Treadmill is no longer used to move farm equipment; instead, it is a useful exercise alternative for issues like bad weather, a busy schedule, and physical limitations brought on by crowded areas, busy streets, and congested areas. To reduce fuel and environmental pollution, people use cars, bikes, and other vehicles frequently in daily life. Persons can utilize a treadmill bicycle if their commute is less than 5-7 kilometers. We use the roller bearings to slide the pedal from one point to another point in the bicycle.
This paragraph describes about the methodology of elliptical bicycle with cross trainer.The fabrication steps for an elliptical trainer with a bicycle can vary depending on the specific design and materials being used.:
To create an elliptical trainer with a bicycle, you will need a bicycle frame, a set of elliptical handles, a set of elliptical foot pedals, and any other necessary hardware or components. Remove the wheels, chain, and any other components that will not be used in the final product. The design, you may need to modify the bicycle frame to accommodate the elliptical handles and foot pedals. This may involve cutting and welding metal, or attaching brackets to the frame. Attach the elliptical handles secure the elliptical handles to the modified bicycle frame using bolts or welding.
This is describes about the fabrication of cross trainer with bicycle:
The above figure shows the final look of Ellipti Move after the completion of fabrication phase –II which included assembly of all the essential components and a custom paint job.
After the real model was created, it was tested under various ambient conditions, loads, and road conditions to find any flaws or imperfections.Eventually, no problems or errors were found throughout the design or manufacture procedures. In order to evaluate how the bicycle would act under the aforementioned road conditions, the model was tested on smooth, bumpy, dirt, and uneven road surfaces. Fortunately, the bicycle performed well, removing any potential for unbalance.
These are the different types of advantages of cross trainer with bicycle:
Elliptical cross-trainers, commonly referred to as elliptical bikes or elliptical machines, are a type of workout apparatus that combines the low-impact motion of an elliptical machine with the outside experience of riding. There are certain drawbacks to utilizing an elliptical bicycle alongside a bicycle, despite the fact that they provide various advantages, such as a full-body workout and decreased joint stress, including:
A cross trainer with a bicycle is a versatile piece of fitness equipment that combines the motion of a traditional elliptical trainer with the added challenge of cycling. Here are some of the potential applications of a cross trainer with a bicycle:
The cross trainer is with minimal impact on the joints, the elliptical trainer is a stationary workout machine that may be used to simulate stair climbing, walking, or running. The average person may exercise on an elliptical machine for 30 minutes at a moderate effort and burn between 175 and 225 calories. Weight, the intensity of the exercise, and the length of the session all affect how many calories are burned.
The elliptical METs are influenced by the level of effort.
The METs are influenced by the level of effort.

4. In the first attempt the Dynamo meter output was recorded at 5V.
5. In the second attempt the Dynamo meter output was recorded at 6V .
6. In the rare wheel , the attached Dynamo meter gets output of 6V power.
7. The voltage and output power of Dynamo meter is relevance on the speed of pedaling and load of the circuit.
Elliptical machines, commonly referred to as cross trainers, are common workout devices found in homes and gyms all over the world. A cross trainer is a low-impact choice for cardio training since it mimics the motion of jogging or walking without the strain on joints. By the idea of a cross trainer, the motion of the machine is produced by transferring human energy to the machine. This device can be useful for people to use for fitness as well as short-distance transport. It is unnecessary to set up a specific time for their exercise when using this equipment.
The bicycle's rear wheel has a dynamo metre attached to it that is connected to a battery and When the bicycle is mounted on two stands and you pedal, the rear wheel revolves at a set rpm. Electrical energy is created by converting mechanical energy into it, and batteries may store electrical energy. We can use the saved energy for household tasks.
We can therefore conclude that Ellipti Move is produced. Cost optimization, which is successfully completed with the added benefit of exposing this concept to the Indian market, results in 60% cost optimization, which satisfies our project\'s goal of producing and manufacturing the model.Many chores can be accomplished rapidly on the elliptical bike. The elliptical bicycle is entirely hand-operated. People can increase their workout with elliptical bikes. As it doesn\'t use biological fuels, the elliptical bicycle is especially eco-friendly. An elliptical bicycle does not promote pollution in any way. Anyone can use this bicycle for both short-distance travel and exercise. When utilising an elliptical bicycle, there is no need to schedule a specific time for their workout. Ellipti Move gives riders a workout while reducing the impact on their joints that comes from exercising on a treadmill, elliptical machine, or while jogging or cycling. Because of the more comfortable Ellipti Move\'s design, the rider can exercise without experiencing the pain that persistent riding causes.
