My feet occasionally become numb while using the EFX (elliptical). Is this harmful?
Forefoot numbness while exercising is annoying but not harmful. In fact, you can probably alleviate or even eliminate the symptoms by positioning your feet flat on the pedals, as opposed to lifting your heel with each stride. This can also occur when using a treadmill. If you have any concerns, you may want to consult your physician.
