Build Quality

The Body Rider isn’t just sturdy with it’s steel frame, but it is also built for comfort. The saddle seat features a thick foam padding that will ensure a comfortable workout for every user. Also, you have the added benefit of a firm yet comfortable backrest that provides you with support during the duration of your exercise session. As for the pedals, users will be glad to learn that they’re wide enough to fit comfortably around every shoe size, and come with firm straps to secure your ankles and prevent your feet from slipping. Similarly, the armrests are designed to ensure a slip-free workout.

Assembly

The assembly process is easy and straightforward, especially with the illustrated instruction manual. Most users claimed that it took them singularly around 2 to 3 hours to assemble the machine. It is important to note that you will receive several types of tools, screws, bolts and accessories to help you assemble your Body Rider. However, lubricant will not be included.

Heart Rate Monitor

As with many of these machines, the heart rate monitor is built into the console and relies on information that is relayed by the pulse rate sensors on the grips of the handles. In order to use them correctly, be sure to grip the handles firmly and have your palm and fingers on the sensors. However, it is often considered that these types of heart rate monitors are inaccurate.

Display and Console

The machine features an LCD monitor and console that is easily programmable. It features 21 training programs, and tracks your heart rate, the number of calories you’ve burned, elapsed time, and the distance you’ve traveled. The monitor isn’t back lit, and is admittedly small.

Programs

The Body Rider features 21 different training programs, giving you plenty of options to find the perfect exercise program for your particular needs.

Warranty

The Body Rider 3 in 1 elliptical (AKA BRT3980) has a one year limited warranty on the frame, and a 90 day warranty on parts. Admittedly, this is an unimpressive warranty for this price range.

  1. This is the worst bike. It’s a good workout WHEN IT WORKS. The belt keeps coming off. Had it only 2 months and the chain has come off over 4 times. I would NOT recommend this to anyone. You get set for a workout then the belt comes off. It’s the worst. Do not buy this
