While the elliptical doesn’t stand out as top machine it works perfectly for the overall experience which doesn’t lack any of the required characteristics of a modern machine. These include the heart rate sensors, the 18’ stride and the MP3 compatibility. In terms of drawbacks, there are not many features that could be added to the elliptical. Some users also wished for a built-in fan, but since it is not one of the required characteristics, it can represent a good option when you are looking for a good experience and not a market-leading experience. The elliptical will work perfectly in any home and it can also be the best choice for the cardiovascular workouts of the entire family.
