Sunny Health and Fitness SF-E3416 Elliptical Trainer via Amazon
Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E3416 is a modern dual action, rear drive, magnetic resistance elliptical trainer for a great non-impact cardiovascular training without causing too much pressure on your joints with 8 stage micro tension control knob, LCD display that shows calories burned, total distance, distance per session, speed, time elapsed and pulse- convenient tracking. It gives you the convenience of working out in the comfort of your home cheaply, while listening to music or watching TV and will be targeting your lower body muscles like quads, calves, hamstrings, buttock and arms successfully.
Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E3416 weighs 72 pounds with dimensions of 55 x 23 x 63.5 inches- great if you are restricted on space in your house, has a sleek and robust frame as part of an ergonomic design, tough and resistant crank that can carry users that weigh up to 250 pounds and large non-slip pedals for some stability during workout and also wheels for easy transportation and portability. Quiet magnetic mechanism enables fluid and smooth elliptical motion. It is easy enough to assemble with necessary tools provided but you may want to dedicate one or two hours if you’re doing it by yourself. It is a great magnetic elliptical trainer for the price but obviously you can’t expect it to be as solid or advanced as those units used at the gyms that cost thousands of dollars as many people use them on a daily basis, whereas this one is suitable for less frequent use if you want it to last several years.
Non-impact cardio training reduces the impact injury risks so no strain or bad impact like on some other equipment while still offering low to high intensity resistance and unlike other similar elliptical trainers the SF-E3416 model includes an integrated hand grip heart rate monitor with readings and monitoring target heart rate goals. The 8 level resistance is good to have but one of the customers claim that there is not a lot of difference between different levels- we didn’t have the chance to test the unit so it may be something to do with the specific unit the customer had. There is no adjustment for height but it is suitable for very short or very tall people or anyone in between as long as they weigh a maximum of 250 pounds. This product comes with a 90 day warranty by the manufacturer and for a home unit it sure is robust and durable and offers quite good value for money. As the importer (straight from China and Taiwan) and distributor of great quality and competitively priced fitness equipment for more than a decade, Sunny Health & Fitness is based in Los Angeles area and is currently one of the fastest growing firms in fitness market.
