Fitness Quest (Eclipse) Elliptical Cross Trainer | 1100 HR/A Space Saving, Affordable, Low Impact Cardio

Fitness Quest Eclipse EllipticalPurchasing an elliptical trainer, treadmill or exercise bike in the under $500 price range can be risky, and often leads to disappointment. We always recommend considering your specific needs and doing enough research to know exactly what you're getting and what to expect over time.

The Eclipse 1100 HR/A features a uncommonly small footprint and patented orbital linkage system, producting a smooth and natural elliptical rotation.

The stride length is relatively short, making it best suited for small to medium sized users. The motion produces almost no impact on the knees, back, and hips and the workout is appropriate for all ages and fitness levels.

Despite the size, this elliptical is solidly built and has enough mass to ensure a stable workout. Assembly is easy and the machine includes wheels for convenient transport.

The computer panel tracks time, speed, distance, and approximate calories burned. There are 10 preset workout programs, two heart rate control programs and built-in hand pulse sensors for immediate heart rate monitoring.

Other details include a magnetic resistance system, over-sized, slip-resistant foot pedals for stability and comfort, a water bottle holder and reading rack.

We would not expect this piece of equipment to be a long-term solution, lasting 5 or 10 years. Lower priced options can require more frequent service or replacement of broken parts. Thankfully, in this case, Fitness Quest has built a reputation for excellent customer service.
