This equipment is what Smooth Fitness refer to as a "Dynamic Motion Trainer" hence DMT.
The Smooth Agile DMT is in essence an elliptical trainer, but whereas normal elliptical machines offer only one limited motion, this equipment offers twelve "dynamic" motions and twenty levels of intensity.
Smooth Fitness claim that the equipment's unique motion
strengthens and tones muscles throughout the entire body during an
intense cardio workout, yet it still minimizes joint stress like traditional ellipticals.
Here are the main features:
... the DMT experience
The trainer transforms from a normal elliptical machine
to "Agile" mode by pressing a button and thereby creates a much wider
range of motion, with a resultant increased heart rate. There is also a
corresponding increase in muscle stimulation. The whole is claimed to
dramatically increases the intensity of your workout whilst decreasing
... motion variety
The equipment provides the user with a huge variety of movement during their fitness workout. This comes from combining 12 levels of motion and 20 levels of intensity.
The makers claim that the wide range of motions will
ensure that your body will remain challenged thus ensuring that your
strength and endurance continue to build rather than reach a plateau.
... articulating foot pedals
Exercising on an elliptical is a fun way to work out,
but the experience has been greatly enhanced due to the patented
ergonomic pivoting foot pedals used on this machine. The articulating
foot pedals with shock-absorbing cushions reduce joint
stress and eliminate the heel slap that can cause toe numbness and sore
... thumb controls
Clever design allows the user to adjust both the
intensity and motion levels without taking their hands off the
handlebars. This is achieved with the patented Lite Touch Thumb
Controls. With a shift of a thumb over an infrared sensor, the machine
can vary intensity and transform from a standard elliptical to the other
Agile modes without any interruption of workout.
… workout programs
The key to staying motivated when using any fitness
equipment and achieving your fitness goals is having a variety of
preset programs. This trainer gives you 12 distinct patterns of motion
combined with combined with 20 different levels of intensity.
... personalized workouts
Using the Manual Program you can create your own personalized workout, or simply experiment with the available options. Basically there are three Target Programs to choose from.
The "Time" program allows you to choose a preset time interval or key in your own. You can then use the Elite Touch thumb sensors to vary the intensity and motion pattern.
The "Distance" program allows you to choose a preset distance or enter your own. You can use the amazing Lite Touch thumb sensors to vary the intensity and motion pattern.
The "Calories" program is an ideal program for those who
are watching their calories or have goals based on calorie counts.
Simply enter the number of calories you would like to burn and begin.
For an added challenge, use the Lite Touch thumb sensors to adjust the
intensity and motion pattern.
... interval training
This program allows you to reach for your target heart
rate and improve cardiovascular endurance with higher intensity
routines. Alternate high-intensity periods with periods of cool-down.
The intervals within this program offer great balance between cardio,
fat burning and muscle toning. Each interval can be adjusted at will.
... endurance training
This program commences in warm-up mode, and then
gradually increases the intensity incrementally to burn fat and calories
and build stamina. A cooling down period follows the final level of
intensity. Each of the eight levels is adjustable. Vary Agile
motions along the way for maximum benefit.
... watts control
This program uses "Watts Control". The wattage level can
be pre-selected or you can select your own. Resistance changes
automatically during this routine, but can be adjusted if needed.
... fat burning
It is well known that exercising for longer periods of
time at a reduced level of intensity encourages your body to burn more
calories and fat. The preset levels are optimal for this routine, but
are completely customizable to suit any fitness level.
… heart rate control
The Heart Rate Control program consists of a Warm-up, Main Program and Cool Down. The elliptical machine determines a preset maximum target heart rate based upon your sex, height, weight and age, or you can adjust it to whatever maximum target workout rate you want.
Once you start, the program takes you through a mild
warm-up routine, a powerful workout and a cool-down phase for a complete
cardio program. All settings are customizable.
… warranty details
The Smooth Agile DMT Elliptical is underpinned by a
lifetime warranty on the frame together with a 5 year warranty on all
other parts (including electronics) and 2 years labor.

I have been into fitness my entire life and I have never experienced a piece of equipment like this.
The elliptical I owned before the DMT arrived I would use 45-60 minutes a day 5 days a week. I have owned the Agile for 2 months now and I get a better workout in 30 minutes then I ever have before.
I have noticed a slimmer and more toned midsection and increased endurance when I am able to run outside.
This is an incredible piece and I would recommend someone assembling it for you. It took me about 2 hours.
I would have never thought I could get a commercial machine in my price range. With the Agile, I did.
This is more solid than the units that I use in the gym.
The full body workout is something I have been intrigued about for a while. This is everything they say it is.
Do yourself a favor, if you are looking for health club quality for the home, take a long look at this one.
This machine is a beast!! I am VERY pleased.
I love my Agile DMT, I am a large man (ex football player) and this machine stands up to the test.
It is so stable it is unbelievable.
I was concerned about making such a big purchase online but the end result was great.
Thank for such a great sturdy machine.
This machine does everything. Having the different options as far as the movement is something I never experienced before.
This is a perfect balance between an elliptical and an arc trainer. Very easy on the joints and very fluid.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone like me that can not handle the wear and tear on their joints like they used to be able to.
Be patient, delivery takes between 2-3 weeks. It is worth the wait though.
