T-Fitness Expert Review (Info)

Smoothness of Rotation
The equipment of an elliptical cross trainer includes balance unit, brake system, training computer (display, programmes, etc.), and extras like transport wheels, book holders, etc.. A good equipment makes exercising more varied and more comfortable. Your workout becomes more effective with pulse measuring.
Innovation is a special criterion of the T-Fitness elliptical cross trainer test rating. Here, we only rate equipment, which is characterized by technical innovations, which are really important for the further development of elliptical cross trainers. The higher the test rating of the elliptical cross trainer, the more advanced the development already is!
The balance unit consists of balance mass, pedal bearing, ball bearing, etc. and is very important for concentric run. Transmission ratio and stride length and stride width in combination with stride height contribute to a concentric run. When the elliptical cross trainer offers a good concentric run, exercising is very joint-gentle. Muscle activity is distinctively increased as well.
The stability of the crosstrainer is achieved by sturdy feet, high own weight, and a stable frame construction. A sturdy elliptical cross trainer is not only durable - it is stable even for challenging workout sessions and provides a higher weight load capacity.

      When you compare the products, please mind that some manufacturers define differently the balance mass of their crosstrainers. Therefore, the indications can vary among each other. Besides the weights of flywheel, pulley, and caryying wheel respectively cross and blank discs (levelling discs), the indications of balance mass of some manufacturers consider additionally the weights of pedal arms, handle bars, and other parts. This is dubious in our opinion. We define the balance mass as "total weight of flywheel, pulley, carrying wheel respectively cross and blanc discs", which form the rear balance unit.

T-Fitness Expert Review (Info)
Smoothness of Rotation
The cardiostrong cross trainer EX40 is the right choice, when you value comfortable and effective training. Thanks to the high-quality magnetic brake system and the flywheel mass of 28 kg, a comfortably smooth and mainly joint-friendly, concentric run of the cardiostrong cross trainer is ensured.

Joint-friendly and comfortable

On the one hand, the good concentric run provides a very joint-friendly training and is also very comfortable. In addition, the cardiostrong cross trainer EX40 is equipped with cushion pads. These softly padded treads makes the training very comfortable and allow for training without shoes so that the muscles and tendons are better strengthened throughout the workout.

An elliptical cross trainer that adjusts to you

The cardiostrong cross trainer EX40 is not only a fitness machine for ambitious sportsmen at home but in fact a machine for the whole family - from a teengager to the great grandmother. This is proved by the individual adjustability of the cross trainer. The treads can be adjusted in three steps horizontally and the handlebars can be adjusted in four steps vertically. Therefore, the cross trainer can be adjusted perfectly to the height of the user. This is essential for high training comfort! As the viewing angle to the console changes with different heights, the display can be tilted, making it easy read of from any angle!

Diverse training programs and great possibilities for success

For long lasting training fun, the cardiostrong cross trainer EX40 has 19 training programs. Offering four pulse controlled programs, you can adapt your workout to your targets, such as cardio training or weight reduction. The heart rate is measured either with the hand pulse sensors of the cardiostrong cross trainer or a chest strap. The resistance zone of the cardiostrong elliptical cross trainer EX40 can be additionally varied from 10 to 350 Watt, so that you can constantly adapt the workout to your training success.

The cockpit of the cardiostrong elliptical cross trainer EX40 is also designed for an effective training. Besides a big profile display, values for distance, burnt calories, time, Watt, pulse, and speed are clearly shown during your workout. You constantly have an overview over your current training with the cardiostrong cross trainer EX40, keeping your training targets constantly in sight.
