Mark’s Update: The JLL CT300 is an amazing substitute for the Axos, which has been ‘unavailable’ for a long time now. JLL not only produce amazing equipment, this UK-based brand has an amazing reputation for after sales service too.

Detailed Review of the Kettler Cross M Cross Trainer
This machine sits between the budget models and the mid-price ones, though features-wise it is closer to the mid-range ellipticals. Once assembled it really is as simple as hopping on and getting going, you don’t have to input any information or go through any setup at all, which was great. The LCD display shows all relevant information at all times, so it’s very easy to keep track of your progress at all times.
The resistance is adjusts manually, but don’t let that put you off – it really is a quick and effortless process. The maximum setting is pretty intense and will take a while to get to, the first is nice and relaxed and a great starting point for a newbie. Your pulse is also tracked via hand sensors.
The recovery test is a really cool feature to keep things fun. It monitors your workouts every time you use the machine and will produce a fitness rating for you to see how well you’re doing. This is a great motivational tool, as you are always striving to increase your rating.
