Training at home and getting in shape made easy with XTERRA Fitness FS400 Elliptical Trainer. This unit is designed to do just that because it has got great and interesting features that would allow anyone to achieve fitness goals. This is truly a unit to consider if you are looking for an elliptical trainer that could deliver in its price range. Everyone is looking for an equipment that would be able to offer a total body workout and the XTERRA Fitness FS400 Elliptical has got your back because of its sleek styling and synchronized upper and lower body movement.
The patented front-drive design increases your use of space with a small footprint while offering a movement that is biomechanically correct and effective at the same time. It has 18’’ stride length that is amazing and the other elliptical trainer that has 20’’ stride length is the ProForm Endurance 520E Elliptical Trainer. We can tell you that 18’’ stride length for this unit is a good buy because any other elliptical trainer that has more than that has an extra dollar for its price. Generally, the XTERRA Fitness FS400 Elliptical Trainer is a recommendable unit that you can recommend even to a friend.

With this feature, you can either chose to work out the easy or the hardcore way which means you have the option of choosing even a challenging workout that would ultimately help you to achieve that physical fitness you desire.
- It has got 8 preloaded programs to help you in your journey of fitness discovery.
- The Ergonomic 18’’ stride length offers a comfortable workout motion that would allow you to work out to your full potential.

- The unit operates like a smooth operator without any noise and it is maintenance free or at most requires little maintenance, thanks to the 5 pounds Flywheel Belt drive system and the friction-free magnetic resistance.
- Your heart rate can be monitored through the well designed and conveniently positioned pulse grips. This means not only can you work out without getting bored of holding the pulse grip but you will also be able to maintain your target heart rate zone at all times.
- The oversized foot pedals with non-slip surface also provide maximum comfort and safety to you during a workout.

All you are required to do is to plug in any portable device with a headphone jack into the console audio jack.

Shipping and Assembly
Shipping cost for the XTERRA Fitness FS400 Elliptical Trainer generally depends on the retailer you are purchasing from. However, Amazon ships this product for free but that may not be the case with other retailers.
We have not seen anyone that has complained about the difficulty in assembling this unit, although, there are bits and pieces to be fixed which could take about 30 minutes or so depending on individual capabilities. It is delivered with an instruction manual that would walk you through the process of assembly. Nevertheless, if you are not up for all the hassles involved in assembling you may opt for ‘’hire an expert’’ that would come to your home and assemble it accordingly, of course at a price.
So far, all the feedback concerning the XTERRA Fitness FS400 Elliptical Trainer from real users has been nothing but positive. One actually recounted how it has been a good choice for his replaced hips and was recommended to him by a friend.
