The main target of Elliptical Trainer users is their lower body. However, with Freemotion Elliptical Trainer e5.3’s handles, it can provide an upper and lower body workout at the same time. This trainer can also be adjusted to provide a much longer stride, allowing for a much more intense workout that exercises the abs, butt, calves, hips, and thighs. The long range of motion also gives a much more intense workout that tones and sculpts the muscles. The Trainer comes with a bunch of pre-set programs that the user can choose from. These are classified into hill and valley, random, and interval programs. There is also the option to create a custom-made program that can be used to create the desired workout of just about any person, from the beginner to the advanced user.

This Elliptical Trainer also provides all the information a person needs to be able to keep track of his or her workout. The display shows readouts for the following:

  • Number of calories burned per hour
  • Duration of workout
  • RPM
  • Heart rate
  • Distance
  • Resistance
  • Watts
  • Mets


This information is displayed onto a 160 x 50 CrystalClear commercial graphical display which makes it extremely easy for users to look up the information that they need.

The overall appearance of the Trainer is impressive as well, from its rear-access C-drive design to its 51” inch footprint. Its wheel tracks are covered; making sure that no dirt and dust will settle and build up onto the rails. The Trainer weighs 275 lbs. and its dimensions are as follows:

  • Length: 51 inches
  • Width: 35 inches
  • Height: 34 inches


Aside from being compact, the machine is quiet and works smoothly as well.  Its extra features can definitely make the workout much more comfortable. The pedals are covered with cushioned gel pads called Cushioned ComfortGel that provides for more ease and comfort during the workout. There are also trays for items such as water bottles, music players, remote controls, and eyeglasses, among other things. These accessory trays are convenient and allow for a smoother and hassle-free workout.

All in all, the extensive features as well as the advanced technology that is utilized by the Freemotion Elliptical Trainer e5.3 definitely make it a great piece of exercise equipment. It can be used by all kinds of people, from beginners to experts.

Pros

The Freemotion Elliptical Trainer e5.3 is one of the products to look out for when it comes to workout machines. With all its perks and advantages, it is certainly a great buy. The machine is designed into a C-shape which saves space and can easily be mounted. The Electromagnetic Resistance provides 16 training levels, perfect for any type of workout. The Trainer generates its own power, which means that it can be placed anywhere, even in areas where there is no power outlet.

Cons
While this characteristic offers a definite advantage, it has some issues as well. Because the Trainer generates power when it is used, the display powers down 15 seconds after the pedaling stops. When this happens, all the readouts disappear as well, so the user loses all his exercise data. One possible solution to this is the rechargeable batteries that come with the machine. The batteries require about an hour of workout for 5 days straight for them to be sufficiently recharged.
