“ Folding elliptical magnetic trainer. „
I had one of these machines delivered over a week ago, unfortunately, it had been damaged in transit and had to be returned. We still managed to give it a good work over before packing it away in its box. My first impression was - wow! what a big machine. We set it up in my lounge, and did it fill it too. I loved the design, and the five function fitness monitor gives readout of time, distance, calories lost, total strokes and strokes per min. This machine would be brilliant for someone who has the space to leave it set up. Unfortunately, we don't, so we thought we would have a go at folding it away to see how easy it was to move and tuck into a corner. It folded down fine - BUT please watch your fingers ! My husband helped fold it down and got his fingers trapped between the pendals and the bar - his finger is still numb after a week. If that had been one of my children trying to move it it could have been a lot worse - because no matter how we tried, I didn't know whether to put the machine down or lift it up to release him - it just kept gripping tighter and tighter. It is also a heavy machine to wheel around. I am now waiting for Delta to come and take it away and bring me a smaller model - I will let you know how I get on with that one when it arrives. My advice to anyone thinking of buying one of these machines - go for it if you have the space - or the strength to move it around. It is a nice machine to work on - but for me, I need something smaller.
