The Diamondback 1260 ef is yet another elliptical trainer that will suffice to say is the ‘leader of the pack! I have always had a thing for elliptical trainers, and this one is a beast and the best. It was named the ‘best buy’ by a leading consumer reporting publication for six years and it has not shown sign of slowing down.
The reason for that is not far fetched, because it has lots of sophisticated features that make it to stand out among the rest. For instance, it has about 20 resistance levels that is electronically controlled. It has powerful incline levels that can push a newbie or pro to the limit. And its heavy duty steel frame makes it durable and perfect for your home gym. There is no amount of accolades that will be too much for this beauty, because it truly deserves it.
What Can I Achieve By Having This?
All its features will be useless if it can not accomplish anything to its owner, thus we look at what it can help anyone to achieve. Because of its custom workout and resistant levels, you can burn more calories easily than any other elliptical trainer. The Diamondback 1260 EF offers and supports a lot of workout programs that include hill climb, sprint, cardio, glute burner, quad builder, target HR, HR interval, HR hill, fat burner, total trainer, interval, manual, random and interval.
It has a sophisticated multiple data digital display, that will show your progress by displaying your workout intensity level, calories burned, calories burned per minute, incline, speed level, your pulse, RPM, distance covered, watts, and many more. Your heart rate can be monitored as well by using the dual heart rate options; the hand grips that has inbuilt heart rate contacts and the polar compatible heart rate receiver which will be strapped to the chest to monitor your heart rate just in case you are doing a hands free workout.
