You can track your progress with the elliptical’s blue, backlit LCD console display. To check your heart rate, simply hold the sensors on the stationary handlebars and it will show up on the screen. You can get an even more accurate reading by making use of the chest strap, which is included in the purchase price.

The flywheel on this cross-trainer weighs a tidy 23 pounds and it is 61.5 inches long, 30 inches wide and 65 inches high. It weighs 240 pounds. Someone as heavy as 325 pounds can get on and start working out.

You can make your exercise session more enjoyable by making use of the machine’s reading rack and stay hydrated by keeping a bottle of water in the built-in holder. However, this elliptical does not come with such accessories as user accounts, quick start option, locking pin or speakers.

You get a lifetime warranty for the elliptical’s frame, a five-year warranty on parts and a two-year labor warranty.
