Review: Sole Fitness E35 Elliptical

Purchasing an elliptical machine is a great first step towards your ideal fitness level, and the best machines can be a lifelong investment, providing excellent workouts throughout every stage of your fitness journey. Usually priced in the mid price range for ellipticals, the Sole Fitness E35 is considered by many to be one of the best elliptical machines currently on the market. In fact, this model is one of the most popular choices for gyms and training centres because of its intense durability.

Sole Fitness E35 Elliptical Review

Sole Fitness has certainly outdone itself with this machine, an elliptical machine that provides a workout that is not only effective but is also comfortable.

Product Features

A 29 pound flywheel weights the Sole Fitness E35, making sure this machine won’t move during even your most vigorous workouts. The weighted flywheel also increases the resistance level of the bike, drawing every muscle of your body into the workout and increasing your metabolism and stamina. This allows you to burn more calories even when you aren’t actively working out.

The Sole Fitness E35 also comes with 10 different workout programs including two programs designed to strengthen your heart and two custom programs. The six standard workout programs are geared at different levels of fitness, making this machine an excellent choice for users of almost any fitness level.

Those of you who want to carefully track your workout progress will be happy to hear that this machine comes with a special array of built-in sensors to track your pulse and a variety of other fitness related statistics. These statistics are displayed on an oversized backlit LCD screen and include speed, overall distance and calories burned.

The final feature that makes the Sole Fitness E35 stand out from other machines in the same price range is its high gear ration, which provides an extremely realistic, smooth cycling experience that takes almost all the pressure off your knees and ankles, drastically reducing your risk of injury. The pedals, which face 2 degrees inward, are also designed to prevent injury by reducing the weight on your knees and ankles.

Comfort Level

The Sole Fitness E35 is definitely one of the most comfortable elliptical machines out there. Its oversized pedals come with a special texture to keep your feet from sliding off the machine. Unlike many other elliptical machines, the Sole Fitness E35 actually offers an adjustable stride of 20-22 inches, making it ideal for taller users.

A range of creature comforts encourage even the reluctant athlete to stay on this particular elliptical machine for extended periods of time and to keep coming back. The Sole Fitness E35 comes with a built in fan to keep you cool during workouts as well as a water bottle holder so you don’t have to interrupt your workouts at any point. Built in speakers even make it easy to listen to your favourite tunes while you work out. The machine is also almost silent, making it possible to get caught up on your favourite TV show while you work out.

For elderly users or those with heart conditions, this particular model does come with a chest-strap heart monitor.

Those of you who live in apartment buildings or condos—or who simply have houses that already seem too full—will be happy to know that the Sole Fiteness E35 folds up so it can conveniently be stored in any room of the house.

Assembly

It’s common to experience some difficulty putting the Sole Fitness E35 together, especially if you’ve never assembled an elliptical machine before, but the boxed packaging does include detailed and illustrated instructions for assembly. Each machine comes with a manual as well as all the tools and parts necessary to assemble the machine.

The Sole Fitness E35 usually takes people around 45 minutes to an hour to assemble.

Maintenance

One of the greatest things about this elliptical machine is how easy it is to maintain. All you have to do to keep this machine working at its best is dust it regularly and oil the joints once in a while. With even that small amount of care the Sole Fitness E35 can last even a professional athlete an entire lifetime.
