The model has 18 built-in workout programs comprising of 9 Calorie and 9 Performance workouts. Each workout has been designed by a Certified Personal Trainer in order to assist you in achieving your fitness goals whether it be to lose weight or tone up.

… large LCD  display

The control panel on this elliptical incorporates a large LCD display. The display provides information on the following workout parameters:


… 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.

… digital resistance levels

This model 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 18 digital resistance levels which can be selected from the conveniently located buttons on the control panel.

… oversized pedals

This elliptical is equipped with oversized pedals. These have been designed to allow for a number of different foot positions and thus provide the user with greater stability and comfort during the workout.

… 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.

… iPOD connection

Associated with the audio system on this model is an iPOD compatible music port. The user can simply plug in their iPOD, or MP3 player, into the Interplay Music Port situated on the control panel. Enjoy listening to your favorite music or an audio book title during your work out session.

… 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.

… space saver design

This elliptical has been designed with a folding or “space-saver” frame. By lifting the handle on the front stabilizer and tipping the frame upright the equipment can be made to rest on the storage feet. In this position the elliptical occupies a lot smaller floor space.
