… power ramp

Another innovative feature of this trainer is the “power ramp”. The elevation of the ramp can be adjusted between the values of 0 % to 20 % directly from a button on the control panel.

Just like a normal display screen the user can check their progress, but the user is able to navigate through menus and pull up relevant workout data with just a swipe of the finger.

… ergonomic pedals

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

A strenuous workout can leave you feeling hot and sticky, but this elliptical trainer provides the perfect solution with an integrated workout cooling fan.

The fan has a low, high and auto setting. When the auto setting is selected the speed of the fan will automatically adjust itself to the speed at which you are pedaling.

The console mounted fan is operated from a button on the control panel and helps to keep you to keep cool during the most vigorous workout.
