Sunny Health & Fitness Magnetic Elliptical, SF-E3865
Black Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E3865 is a very modern elliptical trainer with magnetic resistance, 44 lb. flywheel, a smart multi-functional LCD display and tablet holder, an accurate pulse function and stride zone for a great whole body workout.
Sunny Elliptical has a robust and durable construction with a 265 lb. user weight capacity. The 20″ of fluid gate motion stride length on this elliptical trainer increases your range of motion. And this longer than normal stride stimulates more muscle movement and action with the amount of muscular stretch.
You have the 12 pre-loaded programs that offer you different training options to help you achieve your goals faster. With the 7 workout modes you’ll be able to train for heart rate control, target heart rate or watt output specifically. Or alternatively you can control these functions manually. You can put your smartphone or iPad on the tablet holder provided and watch videos or listen to music and be able to exercise longer.
There is a water bottle holder for you to have a drink nearby when you’re thirsty and you don’t have to dismount the elliptical to get some water. With the anti-slip, curved multi-grip, full motion arm exerciser handles you’ll be able to work on your upper body- shoulders, chest, arms and back. It has 16 levels of real smooth magnetic belt driven resistance and you can increase or decrease the challenge as you wish. The magnetic resistance works with the Smart Control function that is based on the heart rate measurement via the pulse sensors on the fixed handles.
The display panel on the Sunny Elliptical has the standard indicators of current speed, distance traveled, calories burned, time exercised, rpm, watt and odometer. You can move your legs forward and back easily on the large pedals with large stride (the distance that the pedals move back and forth). The long stride targets your glute, thigh and calf muscles. And with the way it extends your legs further back and forth, it helps work your hamstrings as well and gets your whole body engaged at a deeper level.
It has a large 44-pound flywheel and belt drive for a smooth and quiet operation and offers a great momentum and smooth ride. Your feet will be kept in place with the pronounced inner rim on the anti-slip foot pedals an you can feel safe with also the floor stabilizers. It is a large and heavy duty elliptical that is not foldable, but includes the transport wheels at the front and can be wheeled easily from room to room in your house. At whatever speed or resistance you’re using this elliptical you will be in control and without any jerky movements.
Sunny Health and Fitness SF-E3865 weighs 144 pounds and is 66 inches long. The resistance at the high levels is not very challenging but will still give you a good workout. It is nice that you can pedal backwards as well, and engage slightly different muscles for a more effective overall workout. It comes with a warranty of 3 years for the structural frame and 180 days for the parts. And they have a decent customer support for any problems or issues you may have. The assembly is not particularly easy and you need to follow the instructions very carefully and probably get some help from a friend or someone in the house.
