The generous 19 inch stride length means a longer motion, comfortable movement and a quiet action.
One of the main difference between a rear drive elliptical cross trainer and front drive, (such as this one) is the movement of the feet and the “stride length”.
Stride length is how far your feet move away from each other before beginning the return journey.
A long stride length such 19 inches means that your feet will be 19 inches away from each other at the maximum elliptical stride.
Smooth and Heavy Elliptical Flywheel
In the same way that a spinning bike benefits from a heavy flywheel, so do does an elliptical trainer need a heavier flywheel. The 6 kg flywheel of the elliptical trainer ensures a smooth and quiet gliding movement.
Nothing is more frustrating than an elliptical trainer that offers a minimum number of resistance levels. Fat burning and fitness levels increase incrementally and so should your training.
With 32 resistance levels, you are assured of just that ability to increase your workload the way that your body works.
This elliptical resistance system is based on magnetic resistance which is more expensive to create and cheaper for you in the long run.
If you enjoy watching TV or listening to music when you are training then you really will appreciate the quite effect of the magnetic resistance system, especially when compared to the noisier supermarket systems which often use air resistance.
Elliptical Trainer Safety
When it comes to elliptical trainers people often don’t associate any danger with them as they do with treadmills.
However an Elliptical trainer does have moving parts and therefore can create a hazard exceptionally to little fingers. Another advantage to the magnetic control resistance system is that the drive system is fully enclosed. This means that unlike many of the air resistance elliptical trainers there is no chance of children hurting their fingers.
Heart Rate Control
Everybody has a different reaction to exercise. Do you know where your heart rate should be for maximum fat loss, endurance or just to improve your fitness levels?
To keep burning fat and accelerating your fitness improvements you can also benefit from the Tunturi HRC, (Heart Rate Control) programs which help you maintain a target heart rate throughout the workout.
With the heart rate control program you no longer need to keep changing your resistance levels manually, the elliptical trainer does that for you!
Simply set your parameters and target fat loss, cardio or fitness programs.
High Maximum User Weight.
The heavier you are then the more strain you put on the elliptical trainer. This is why so many of the supermarket variety fitness machines have such a limited maximum user weight; they are not built to be used on a long-term basis. With a maximum user weight for this elliptical trainer of 135 kg, almost anyone can enjoy a great workout.
