Featuring a comfortable and natural stride, the Best Fitness E1 center drive elliptical trainer offers patented technology that ensures the shape of the ellipse is biomechanically correct. This means the machine moves in the same natural motion as your body does, providing a true running feel. Inferior designs can have either too much vertical movement or too much horizontal movement; those units will often make the user feel off-balanced while exercising. The E1, however, will keep you in a balanced upright position for a stable and secure feel.

The E1 also has a balanced steel frame which eliminates rocking while maintaining a compact footprint, which makes it ideal for your home workout area (particularly when space is a concern). Combined with its durable components, the steel frame supports users up to 275 pounds while the unit’s front transport wheels make it easy to move around. Proper pedal spacing on this elliptical eliminates hip fatigue–when your feet are forced out too wide or in too narrow, your body will incur undue strain on your hips. The E1 also offers a comfortable step-up height to allow you to start your workouts safely while its moving arms recruit your upper body and core to the workout, making this a total body trainer.

The E1 offers a compact footprint that’s ideal for smaller spaces.

To track your workout metrics, the E1 offers contact heart rate handles for advanced monitoring. Additionally, the console offers feedback such as time, distance, speed, and calories so you can can track your workout, push yourself to the next level, and help accomplish your fitness goals. With 17 levels of smooth resistance, this trainer will challenge everyone from beginners to seasoned fitness gurus while 12 unique fitness programs offer variety to keep your workouts fresh and challenging.

Solid machine, easy to assemble and fun to use Our elliptical trainer arrived in a large cardboard box, that needed two people to move it. We had it delivered in our garage and carried the pieces down to the basement and assembled it there. The only difficult part of this was the base, which also needed to people to move – it’s heavy and awkward. The box contained Styrofoam which was marked for recycling, and all the plastic bags were clearly marked with recycling symbols. I give them good marks for making recycling easier.Assembly was extremely easy. The directions were fairly clear and the parts needed for each of the assembly steps was individually packed, see my photo. Some parts are left or right oriented and those are clearly marked with L or R stickers. It also came with all the tools needed for assembly. I put it together in about an hour. NOTE: I needed to tighten some of the nuts after we’d used the machine for 3 weeks. I noticed this after the elliptical was noisy to use, normally it’s extremely quiet…

Works great with TVs–Saves me at least an hour a day, and Compact in Size! I’m a relatively active outdoors person also with numerous indoor exercise equipment, dislike gym ellipticals, and expected this elliptical would be a minor use item. Was I surprised!Probably the greatest impediments to most people’s exercising are: lack of motivation and time. This mindless, requiring low-motivation (both desirable characteristics) exerciser works excellently with high-wall-hanging TVs, so one can learn or be entertained, while exercising; thus perhaps saving an hour of time daily!Rowing machines are noisy. Free weights and home weight-gyms cause interrupted flows in viewing due to constant changing of weights and head angles. Treadmills require concentration and has too much bounce to enjoy the shows. Gazelle gliders lack adjustable resistance and also require concentration and has too much bounce. Boxing bags or jumping with ropes cause interruptions and bounce. Gym ellipticals either require my watching boring commonly-watched TV…

Elder jock I received my elliptical trainer in a well-packaged container which prevented any damage to the components. I was able to assemble it myself with some degree of difficulty in about 2 hours. So far I have been very pleased with the operation of the ellipital trainer. The stride is comfortable, not too long and doesn’t put undue stress on the hips. It is quiet when in use, allowing one to watch television without a home theater for amplification. The only problem I have found is there is some jerkiness when at higher tension levels. I haven’t tried any of the programs so I can’t comment on them. The trainer doesn’t take up a lot of room (unlike the treadmill it replaced)! Overall I would recommend this product, particularly if space is limited.
