Update: Another model which has become unavailable… this is common with fitness equipment reviews in all of the categories. I will add it to my watch list, and will update this page as and when this model returns. In the meantime, check out my main Elliptical Cross Trainer Reviews page for the latest popular machines.
Summary: This is no ordinary cross trainer. With both forward and reverse motion, adjustable resistance and up to a 30 degree incline, your fitness levels are certain to benefit. Added extras such as the in-built cooling fans and the speakers only add to the training experience. This premium model currently has a massive discount at amazon.co.uk – check out the product page for more.
Detailed Review of the Sole Fitness E25 Elliptical Trainer
The Sole Fitness E25 Elliptical Trainer is a high quality, premium piece of gym equipment. The machine has a heavy 11kg flywheel and a high gear ratio, which ensures an extremely smooth ride, with good resistance levels at the top end. You’ll also find a power incline feature giving additional resistance, while you’ll also have the option for both forward and reverse motion. This trainer has an extended 20 inch stride, while a 2 degree inward slope on the foot pedals will reduce stress on your ankles and knees.
One of the highlights of this cross trainer is the large, blue backlit LCD display. This shows all of the information you’ll need to track your progress, including the time, the distance and the calorie burn. However, the display goes much further than that. You’ll find MP3/iPod connectivity and integrated speakers too, while 10 manual programmes, 5 preset training programmes and 2 user-defined programmes are also controlled through the display. Simple operations, such as increasing or decreasing the resistance can be done through added buttons on the handlebars.
This elliptical trainer is certainly in the luxury price range, but a large discount at amazon does make it a particularly good value machine. The equipment has a maximum user weight of 147kg (23 stone 5 pounds) and is ideal for use in the home. Built-in cooling fans are a nice added extra, while you’ll also find chest straps to measure your heart rate, a user manual and a water bottle as part of the deal too.
Reviews are a little limited, but they are all highly complimentary. It has been described as sturdy, smooth, quiet and ’quality all the way’. The control panel has been praised too, as were the fans, while it also been said to be easy to move around due to the rear wheels.
If you want your elliptical trainer workout to be the ultimate in luxury and comfort, look no further than the Sole Fitness E25. With 17 training programmes your fitness levels will surely rise, while you’ve got built-in fans and speakers as luxury added extras.
