Here’s a list of the main features:

… workout programs

The trainer has 35 workout programs. Each workout has been produced  by a certified personal trainer to help maximize the benefit from your workout session. These built-in workouts will assist you in achieving your fitness goals whether it be to lose weight or tone up.

… upper body grips

Upper body grips allow the user to burn more calories and tone the muscle groups in the arms and trunk. These workout arms feature soft touch grips and are able to accommodate any height of user. They fall naturally to hand and remain comfortable throughout the  workout.

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.

… compact foot-print

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

The floor area occupied by the machine is: 54.0″ L x 31.5″ W. This smaller footprint may be of consideration if you have limited amount of space available in which to operate the trainer.

… magnetic braking

Silent Magnetic Resistance (SMR) braking is used on this model. This system offers a frictionless, resistance braking which is very smooth in operation and allows the user to adjust the intensity of their workout without having to break the continuity of their workout.

… adjustable pedals

This elliptical is equipped with cushioned, adjustable pedals. These ergonomically designed pedals have a textured surface to make them comfortable during use.

The user is able to adjust the heel-to-toe angle of their foot position  in order to provide  greater stability and traction during the workout.

… 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.

… iFIT enabled

This trainer is iFIT enabled with an iFIT module already built into the console. This feature provides the following benefits:

  • MAP: Exercise anywhere in the world with Google Maps
  • TRAIN: Download workouts to help with your fitness goals
  • TRACK: Upload your workout data to monitor your progress.
  • GOAL: Custom tailor workouts to your specific goals.
  • VIDEO: Watch high definition videos with simulated workouts.
  • WEIGHT LOSS: Download sets of weight-loss workouts.

It should be noted that this feature requires a home wireless internet connection, and membership to iFIT.COM which is sold separately.

… iPOD connectivity

An iPOD compatible music port is associated with a built-in music system. The user is able to plug in their iPOD (or any other MP3 player), into the music port located on the control panel and enjoy listening to music or an audio book title.

… tablet holder

The tablet holder was designed for use with most tablet computers. This shelf keeps your tablet secure and in close proximity so that you can access any online training tools or entertainment.
