your fitness goals whether it be to lose weight or tone up.

... web enabled touch screen
The console on this elliptical has a color, web enabled, touch-screen display. You are able to view your workout stats, or your favorite websites on the 10-inch full-color touch screen.
Many people like to be entertained during their workout as they realize that this will inevitably increase their time on the machine and so increase the calories that they burn.
The user is able to navigate their workout stats with a touch of a finger or go online to check email, or participate in social networking.
... digital resistance levels
This trainer makes it easier to burn calories and
increase your muscle tone by allowing the user to increase or decrease
the amount of resistance that is applied to the elliptical's motion.
There are a total of 24 digital resistance levels which can be selected from the conveniently located buttons on the control panel.

This elliptical is a center drive design which benefits from a smaller foot-print compared to either a front or rear drive elliptical trainer.

is very smooth in operation and allows the user to adjust the intensity
of their workout without having to break the continuity of their

... heart rate monitor
The trainer is also equipped with a "CardioGrip" heart rate monitor. This helps you to make the most out of every workout by monitoring your heart rate with sensors that are built into the handlebars.
By monitoring your heart rate you can ensure that you're always in the right training zone for your goals. This results in a more effective workout, burn more fat, and improve your cardiovascular health.
... adjustable stride
The stride length can be adjusted in order to suit the user with a range of 18" to 22" in quarter of an inch settings. In situations where there is more than one person using the machine a new setting can be selected in order to meet that individual's stride preference.
... cooling fan
A vigorous workout can leave you leave you feeling hot and sticky,
but the integrated workout cooling
fan on this model can help you keep cool while exercising.
The console mounted "AutoBreeze" fan automatically
adjusts it's output to the speed of the workout so that the user
receives more cooling air when it's required.

It should be noted that this feature requires a home
wireless internet connection, and membership to

I like that the machine is not big but does what I want it to do for me.
The machine feels good on my knee and hip and was easy to connect to my ifit.
