Are you searching for home gym equipment? If so, an elliptical trainer is the best choice for a full-body cardio workout. And the Body Solid E300 is a well-made tool that will help you hone your physique.
The E300 has several highlights to give you the most bang for your buck. First, its features are aimed squarely at beginning to intermediate users, and persons of average height and weight. It supports up to 300 pounds and has a stride length of 21 inches.
Second, it comes with seven programs in its memory, but you can design and save two more of your own. There are 20 levels of magnetic resistance. As you exercise, you can test your heart rate with the sensors on the fixed handles. And you can see your progress on the LED console. The LED console may be the only part of the elliptical that is a little disappointing. It has a very basic display that alternates between showing pieces of information like time elapsed, strides per minute, heart rate, and calories burned.
Third, you only need to step up 8 inches to mount the E300. Then, the maximum height of the pedals reaches 16 inches, which means you can use the elliptical in a room with normal height ceilings. Its footprint is approximately 30 inches wide by 50 inches long, but you’ll need a further 6 to 8 inches of length to accommodate the elliptical in operation.
Finally, the Body Solid elliptical trainer, while made for consumer use, is built to last. The frame is welded steel with a powder coat finish. The feet are adjustable so that the trainer is easy to level. And assembly should take less than two hours. Users have commented that the E300 operates smoothly with no wobble or vibration.
More features of the Body Solid E300 elliptical trainer:
- Lifetime warranty on the frame, with 5-year coverage on parts and 1-year labor
- Requires electricity to operate
The Body Solid E300 elliptical is a bargain if you want to do cardio exercise at home. It runs smoothly, has all the basic features a regular user will need, and seems made to last.
