Each individual 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.

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.

Web enabled touch-screen

The console on this elliptical has a full color, touch-screen display. You are able to view your workout stats, or your favorite websites on the 7-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 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 24 digital resistance levels which can be selected from the conveniently located buttons on the control panel.

Power incline

A key feature of this elliptical is the power adjustable incline. Using the  UP / DOWN buttons on the control console the elevation can be adjusted between the values of 0 % to 10 %.

Depending upon the amount of elevation selected there is a corresponding change in the motion of the elliptical which enables different muscle groups to be engaged.

The user is thus able able to target different areas of their leg musculature for improved results.

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.

Adjustable pedals

This elliptical is equipped with adjustable, 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.

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.

Also included is a wireless chest strap which transmits your heart rate data continuously to the display without any need to touch the heart rate sensors on 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.
