If you’re someone who prefers getting gym-quality workout in the comfort and privacy of your own home, you should consider getting equipment that would give you satisfying results for the best value. Sole Fitness, a company which claimed its fame by manufacturing pieces of workout equipment that are meant to be used in major hotel chains and gyms, came up with an elliptical machine that would surely look good in your personal gym.
The Sole E35 is an elliptical machine or trainer, stationary exercise equipment which is designed to simulate activities such as walking, running and stair climbing, without placing much stress or pressure on the joints of the person using it. Because of this, the user would be ensured that he wouldn’t be getting any injuries with his joints from exercising, even for long hours. Unlike the treadmill which could only provide workout for the legs, most elliptical trainers like the Sole E35 elliptical machine could give total cardio-based workout for both the upper and lower bodies. So, it’s perfect for someone who wants a cardio workout for the whole body minus the pains of impact injuries and the hassle of leaving one’s home.
The selling points of Sole E35 elliptical trainer is its versatile design and advanced technology. It operates using a ‘quiet drive system,’ which is made possible by the 29-pound front flywheel. This heavy component allows the machine to be very smooth and fluid to use, may it be in forward or reverse motion. The flywheel also lends the machine the sturdiness and durability it projects with its design, so it goes without a squeak even in the most strenuous workouts.
“I got this machine (Sole E35 Elliptical) 5 days ago and I have logged about 5 hours on it so far. Other than a little squeak that has just started, I am so, so, so pleased with it. The thing is SOLID and it’s so quiet I can use it in the same room as someone else watching TV without cranking the volume…” –Liz Russel (Amazon.com customer)
Another attractive feature is that the user can adjust the stride length of the machine, ranging from 20 inches, which is the standard length, to 22 inches. In this way, the person using it could customize his workout into something that best fits his physique, specifically his height and the length of his legs.
“The most important thing that I look for in an Elliptical is the fluid, natural motion of the foot pedals. This machine has the perfect horizontal stride. Most other Ellipticals have a vertical elliptical stride with sharp peaks that makes the motion feel egg-shaped instead of natural. The quality of the machines also seems to be professional.” – FTBiker (Dick’s Sporting Goods website)
With just a push of a button, the Sole E35 elliptical trainer also allows the fitness savvy user to adjust the angle of its ramp through its power incline. The angle which it could work in ranges from 0 to 30 degrees. This gives the user a variety of options when it comes to exercising and lets him focus on the parts that he wants to give special attention to. In addition to that, the elliptical trainer comes with movable handlebars which are essential to giving the arms a proper cardio workout. These handlebars could also be adjusted in order to provide maximum comfort for the user.
This flexible trainer comes with 10 preset programs, 2 of which the user can create himself. The list of possible workout options become ever so longer because it offers 16 different resistance levels which gives the user the freedom to choose the workout intensity.
The Sole E35 elliptical trainer’s blue backlit LCD (liquid crystal display) screen lets the user track his workout data, such as the time, the distance covered, the amount of calories burned as well as the resistance level he is working in. It also displays the rate of the user’s heartbeat, which could be detected by the pulse sensors located at the trainer’s stationary handlebars. The sensors can accurately measure the pulse even if you grasp the handlebars briefly. The trainer also comes with a heart rate chest strap which also allows the user to monitor his pulse on the blue LCD screen hands-free and to participate in its integrated interactive programs.
“I’ve recommended your brand to several of my friends and you can be sure that when it comes time to replace our elliptical or add another piece of equipment to our gym Sole will be the only name we consider. Thanks for building a great product and standing behind it.” -Robert and Stephanie T. (Sole Fitness website)
What’s even superb about this versatile Sole E35 elliptical machine is that it has a built-in cooling fan and water bottle holder, so you don’t have to worry about ventilation and where to put your liquids, so your exercise regimen could go on without unnecessary interruption.
Leading physical therapists were consulted in order to come up with the design of Sole E35’s foot pedals. The 2-inch inward slope to the pedals and the fowas designed in order to minimize the stress on the ankles and knees.
“I am 34 and began running about 6 months ago to get in shape; since that becomes a little more challenging in winter months in the northern states, I wanted to eventually switch to an elliptical. I cannot believe how low-impact it is. My muscles are getting a workout but it just doesn’t feel quite as agonizing as the running and the impact is low so my limps and aches are gone.” – Liz Russel (Amazon.com customer)
The Sole E35 elliptical trainer simply morphs itself into the workout equipment which caters to all the needs of its users. Its customizable features give the users the freedom to workout the way the want without inflicting injuries on themselves, no matter what their age is. It is relatively cheaper compared to the industrial-grade elliptical machines, but it contains the basic features which is decent enough for a home-based equipment. This makes the Sole definitely indispensable when it comes to exercising.
