When you look at the reviews for Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainers you want to know that you can trust the opinion of the reviewer. The review must be knowledgeable and objective. It must give you a balanced account of the Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainer.
There are a number of different models of Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainer. They are not all the same. So you will need to look carefully at the review to see which one it is talking about. Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainers are not all the same.
The Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainer models x1400 and x1500 got very poor reviews and rightly so. There were some real problems with these models. The stride length was too short in both these machines. This is an important feature of the elliptical trainer which aims to reproduce your natural striding action. With too short a stride length this is not possible. The action of these two Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainer models feels strained and unnatural.
Not only were there problems with the stride length in these two Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainer models but the LCD console was poor. The LCD display on an elliptical trainer needs to be clear and convey all the necessary information about the training session. These models did not measure up to requirements.
Both these Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainers were poor value for money. They were not competitive with others on the market.
But these are not the only Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainers. There are two other models which have had better reviews. Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainers x6100 and x6200 HRT have ironed out some of the problems in the earlier models.
Both the x6100 and the x6200 have a 20 inch stride length. The reviews picked up on this improved feature.
Health Magazine gave the Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainer x6100 a particularly good review.
In addition the x6200 has extra features that make it particularly good buy. There is a three year warranty on parts and a lifetime brakes warranty from Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainers on the x6200. With this model you can also program your own fitness routine on the machine. You can even change the footpads on the x6200.
The LA Times, Consumers Digest and Smart Money Magazine all gave these models good reviews. There was a lot of positive feed back. There was a little criticism of the LCD on the x6100 but its performance was praised.
A model which was missed out by many reviewers was the Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainer x6600 HRT. It is professional standard machine such as you would find in a gym or fitness center but you can also buy it for home use. This is why the reviews tend to overlook it. They regard it as a strictly professional elliptical trainer.
The Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainer x6600 HRT is a heavy machine which might put off some home users. But if you have a solid floor then it is fine for home use. When you are using it at home you can get a 5 year warranty on parts and two years on labor. If you are an intensive user these are useful features.
The Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainer x6600 HRT offers 4 different heart programs. It displays the data from your heart on an LCD monitor.
The footpads on this model are particularly good and move well with your body as you exercise. It is a pity that the reviews missed out on the Vision Fitness Elliptical Trainer x6600 HRT because it is a spectacular model.
