I spent a couple months researching elliptical machines and decided on Smooth Fitness 3.6 - what a great decision!
I am 53 years old, wanting to get into shape. Great quality/price, it is quiet, smooth and stable.
The foot pedals are comfortable, my feet don't go to sleep and the stride length for my 5'2" height is perfect.
I like the multiple workout options and haven't tried them all yet.
Set up only took a couple of hours. The company gives you all the tools you need and the instructions are easy to follow.
I opted for curbside delivery. I would recommend having 2 people for the set up only because some of the equipment is very heavy to move.
I am a satisfied customer and you will be too, if you buy this machine!
I did a bunch of research on ellipticals and finally decided on this make and model and couldn't be happier!
I was the most impressed with how quiet the machine is and secondly, with how sturdy it is.
The built-in fan is definitely a bonus and the warranty is above any others out there.
Definitely a product (and company) that I speak highly of!
I was skeptical buying an elliptical trainer without trying it. After doing a ton of research I decided to give this unit a try.
The warranty made me more comfortable. Wow is all I can say.
The assembly company installed it in 30 minutes and I have been using it everyday since.
It has a very comfortable motion and has great features. I would recommend this unit to anyone.
After an extensive and lengthy review process, I believe the Smooth Fitness elliptical machine was well worth the wait!
The online descriptions and ordering process were straightforward and I liked eliminating the middle man and buying direct from the company.
The product was delivered on time as promised and easy to put together with the instructions included.
The elliptical is sturdy and solid, and features are easy to understand.
I would not hesitate to buy another piece of equipment from SmoothFitness!!
