Epic EL 2980 Elliptical Review
Superior-quality elliptical at the comfort of your own home! Now, you can have your own sleek and stylish Epic EL 2980. This elliptical is one of its kind as it is heavy-duty and has a sophisticated design. It has a stainless steel glide track and an upgraded bushing that delivers smooth and quality performance than any other elliptical you can find. Its features include 20 personal trainer workouts that automatically adjust the resistance of the elliptical so you get a wide variety of workout. It also has 4 heart rate workouts that keep you on your target zone. The resistance increases if you need to raise your heart rate and vice versa. Your pulse information is monitored by the BodyPulse Heart Rate Monitor to ensure you are in your target training. This is made possible from the sensors that are built into the handlebars.
The ClearView Backlit Display has a wide viewing angle so that your height does not get in the way of tracking your workout progress. It displays your time, speed, distance, resistance, pulse, RPM, carbs burned and calories burned. This elliptical also comes with a CoolAire Workout Fan to let you cool down when your workout gets intense. With the added feature of an iPod compatible port, you can also listen to your favorite tracks with the built-in sound system. This elliptical has a 350-lb. capacity. Good points Lots of workout programs (20) iPod compatible music port marketed as a commercial/heavy duty elliptical Bad points Lots of lower priced but similarly featured ellipticals out there 1 year parts and labor warranty is short considering the amount of money you’re shelling out No wireless heart rate monitor considering the price you’re paying Comments Decently built elliptical with a decent array of features at a not so decent price. Though the Epic EL2980 is an above average elliptical in many ways, the price at the time of this review is just ludicrous.
