We do know that elliptical machines provide low-impact yet effective cardio workout, right?
But each individual type of elliptical machine provides a different degree of results and comfort, and that would have to do with their features and design. So, this unit (Sole e35 Elliptical Trainer) happens to be in our searchlight this time and we are going to let you know what makes it tick and different from others.
The Sole e35 Elliptical Trainer is upgraded in 2016 and will best suit both experienced and newbie athletes. The upgrade was done in the areas of the console and the integrated technology. It is more efficient than it was last year because of these changes. It has got a Bluetooth technology that would allow syncing with the mobile fitness app for exercise data tracking. It is also iPod and other MP3 Players compactable; this means you can enjoy streams of music while you workout. The 25 pounds flywheel is awesome with a 20’’ to 22’’ maximum adjustable +stride that has the capabilities of running forward and backward.
The ramp angle is fully adjustable from 0 to 30 which are designed to target muscle groups for toning. There are also the pedals with a 2 degrees inward slope and pedal cushioning that ensures that you have the most comfortable feel while working out. These and much more, but I guess I will list the features for better understanding.
Programs– This unit comes with 6 standard programs, 2 custom programs, and 2 heart rate programs.
Incline 30 Levels– The incline as explained earlier is from 0 to 30 levels, you can only imagine how this unit can make your workout challenging that would ultimately allow you to reach your fitness goals.
Pedals– The 15’’ pedals are adjustable with 3 positions, and of course with cushioning that provides the comfort to your feet. The design is such that will reduce the ankle and knee stress that is always associated with cardio machines.
MP3 and iPod– It is MP3 and iPod compactable which will ensure that you are able to play and listen to music while working out. I feel great while working out and dance to the rhythm of the music; this could make your workout much more fun.

As it has always been my tradition, I look at the good side and the bad side any fitness equipment I review. But surprisingly, I couldn’t find many complaints about the Sole e35 Elliptical Trainer; the only one I found was actually one person complaining how rusty the machine was getting under 2 years after purchase. And this could be as a result of bad storage, I don’t know, but since it was a lone complaint I don’t think it is something anyone should worry about but I just thought I should let you know.
Secondly, no one has actually complained about the customer service, maybe because the users never had any reason to contact the customer service since the unit is great. But I will still advice you to check the approval rating of the Amazon vendor in terms of customer service before buying, just in case you need their attention so that you wouldn’t be frustrated with their unprofessionalism.
I believe that Sole E35 Elliptical Trainer is a pretty good machine for its price. Oh, yes, the price has been reviewed and slashed down. Therefore, I guess, this would be a great time to consider buying. For further clarifications, you can head over to Amazon where you shall see tons of customer reviews.
