Efitment is on a roll with their equipment gear and today we will take a closer look at the Efitment elliptical machine trainer.
This particular machine is compact in design, is portable and quiet. Or so the manufacturer says. But where lies the truth? Well, let’s start with the features.
Features of Efitment Elliptical Machine
The machine, is indeed, compact in design with shorter 11-inches stride length. The included front-trasportation wheels make it easy to move from one room to another. The machine offers 8 level magnetic resistance system. It includes LCD display with all the basic features like time, speed, distance, calories burned, scan and pulse rate. The pulse rate can be checked thanks to pulse monitor, which is added to the handles. It also comes with oversized non-slip pedals to accommodate every foot comfortable.
The maximum user support is 220 lbs (99.8 kg) and the dimensions are 50L x 23.5W x 62H (127 x 59.7 x 157.5 cm).
Is It Worth Your Money?
According to several online reviewers, the Efitment elliptical machine was relatively easy to put together. Assembly is required and it shouldn’t take more than one hour. If done by one person.
It’s really compact in design (does not take much space) and thanks to the transportation wheels it can be easily moved from one room to another.
It’s quite sturdy and should support the advertised 220 lbs without a problem. Thanks to the over-sized non-slip 13” pedals, basically anyone can use the machine. However, many users reported the non-slip surface to be uncomfortable for bare feet, so using sneakers is advised.
Now the use. I’d like to mention that because of the compact design and small stride length, it might not be the best solution for tall people, since the circle of motion is quite small. Definitely not comparable to gym elliptical machines.
The handles are quite comfortable and the pulse rate seems to be rather accurate. Regarding the LCD display, it’s big enough and displays and the necessary information just fine.
The Efitment elliptical machine also comes with a cell phone / tablet holder, on which several users complained to be quite wobbly, but you can use an external one, if needed.
