Sole E35 Elliptical Review – The Blow By Blow
The SOLE Fitness brand is slowly being recognized as one of the best brands not just in the U.S. but in the whole world. The SOLE E35 is one of the reasons why that is – it adds huge credibility and trustworthiness to the brand.
The SOLE E35 is a gym equipment durability with a home equipment flexibility. This $$$$ equipment has a number of features that makes it capable of going toe to toe with other pricier elliptical machines in the market today.
The strength of the SOLE E35 is something that nobody can take for granted and even pricier and “feature-rich” competitors cannot even come close to. I’m going to discuss its’ amazing features on this The SOLE E35 Elliptical review.
The SOLE E35 comes at 215 lbs. but can support up to 375 lbs. It is not a lightweight machine but can support way more than other elliptical machines that costs way more. Being able to support up to 375 lbs. makes it a great choice for fatty people who are actually trying to lose weight.
A lot of these people come in at around 300 lbs. so the E35 can definitely support them without worries that they might be pushing the machine to its limit. You can be over 300 lbs. and still be confident enough to push The SOLE E35 hard and fast while still getting that fluid and smooth motion that it is known for.
Variable Workout Programs
The E35 has 10 preset workout programs designed by certified personal trainers that make them both safe and effective. It has six standard programs, two customizable and two heart rate programs that allows you to have a well designed and effective workout session every time.
Some would say that 10 programs is a bit short compared to other machines that have well over 20. But what SOLE did with the E35 is that each of its 10 programs are designed to be completely different from one to another unlike those with the machines that has 30 but virtually similar workout programs.
Smooth and Comfortable Ride
The SOLE E35 has a relatively massive 29-lb. front driven flywheel that allows for a very smooth and natural motion. The adjustable pedals along with the variable stride length of 20 to 22 inches allow you to set them any way you want for your comfort. This makes the E35 gentle not only on the knees but on the hips as well.
The front driven configuration also makes it easy to get on and out of the machine. This is because you do not have to step over the large flywheel which is the case on rear-driven elliptical trainers.
Other than the 10 programs to choose from, you can also personalize your workout by adjusting the incline and resistance levels. You have 16 eddy current resistance levels to choose from to provide you the variation essential for a great workout. You can also change the incline from a flat to 30 degrees incline to get that uphill feel and also to target different muscle groups effectively.
The resistance (right hand side) and the incline (left hand side) can be set through the preset buttons on the console. But what sets the E35 apart, along with a lot of SOLE machines, is that you can also control them through the buttons located on the handle bars.
This allows you to change them according to your preference without having to break your stride just to reach the buttons on the console.
The E35 comes with an easy to read blue-backbit LCD monitor that allows you to keep an eye on your current session’s time, an estimated calculation of your calories burned, the distance that you have traveled as well as your current resistance level.
You can also monitor your heart rate through the sensors located on the handle bars or through the chest strap. The chest strap comes with the Sole E35 package unlike most elliptical trainers out there. The large 15 inch foot pads allow you to have a comfortable footing regardless of your shoe size.
The E35 is a solid equipment with a great combination of features that not only functions well together but actually does makes sense. SOLE is not trying to blind you with magnanimous number of features but brings you a logical combination of things that blends well together.
It also makes sure that you have complete control of your workout by giving you a better reach on things. Having a chest strap that a lot of elliptical machines don’t also brings more bang to your buck.
To top it all of, the E35 has a lifetime warranty on frame, five years on parts and two years for labor. This just shows how much value SOLE puts in to their machines like the E35.
