Disclosure: I received a CE-55BT Elliptical from Smooth Fitness for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
I have been using my CE-55BT Elliptical for almost a month now and I love it! Before I was going to the gym every other day and spent a lot of time using machines that tons of other people have touched. [That part really grosses me out about the gym!] Now I am able to work out in the comfort of my own home. Well, the comfort of my parents home. I set up the elliptical there so that the kids wouldn’t play on it during the day. Plus, my mom uses it twice a day! Its a win-win for everyone. Wanna know why we love the CE-55BT Elliptical so much? Check out these features!
My absolute favorite part of the elliptical has to be the grab bars. There are THREE options! Which is awesome because I move my arms a lot in general [Im Italian, I talk with my hands.] so when I work out they just go everywhere. Plus, there is a heart rate monitor on one of them too! The heart rate monitor is good to use because you can monitor your pulse and see if you are in the calorie burning zone!
On one set of the handle bars are your stride length and work level. Its easy to adjust both when you are in the middle of a workout. The “Variable Stride Indicator” tells you how long your stride is as well. Above that is a fan! At the gym only the really fancy, high end machines had fans, and my CE-55BT Elliptical has one! [Makes me feel fancy even when sweating!] Then the monitor is on top. I wanted to take a detailed picture of it on, but I was afraid of working out and taking pictures. But its pretty cool. Gives you all kinds of stats – distance, calories burned, heart rate, stride length. And it even has a book holder!
The kids have been obsessed with the elliptical ever since the box arrived! If I go to the guest bedroom at my parents to grab something they both want to try it out. Ryley’s legs are long enough that I can guide her in front of me, which is so fun! We go slow and she laughs the whole time. I just hold Avery up and slide back and forth when its his turn. [A workout in itself!] I guess the main reason I love the CE-55BT Elliptical is its a family machine. We all use it and in the process we are teaching the kids good workout habits!
