Klarfit Ellifit Elliptical Cross Trainer Review
With three model types, you would think that the Klarfit Ellifit would be mediocre at best. But each of the three models excels in nearly every department. They’re durable, well-made, have robust training computers, and come with all of the features you need to maximize your workout results.
The Basic 10 is great for beginners. It features a 4kg flywheel and magnetic brake system. The non-slip treads of the foot pedals prevent discomfort and injuries, while the training computer allows you to track your pulse, calories burned, distance and time. The LCD display features large buttons that are easy to see and use.
With 8 adjustable resistance levels, you’re sure to get a challenging workout every time. A pulse rate monitor is built-in, so you can track your heart rate throughout your entire workout.
And the transport wheels make it easy to move this machine from one room to another if needed.
The Basic 20 is a little more advanced and is ideal for intermediate users. It boasts a 5kg flywheel with the same magnetic brake system. However, this model also allows for forward or reverse movement. Virtually all other features are the same, including the number of resistance levels.
The Advanced model comes with a 5kg flywheel, magnetic brake system, forward and reverse, and slip-proof footplates.
What sets this model apart from the previous is the number of resistance levels. This model has 10 instead of 8, allowing for a greater challenge for advanced users.
All models have built-in heart rate monitors, and the training computers track the same workout stats. The only differences between the three are the colors, resistance levels and flywheel sizes.
What We Liked
- An option for all fitness levels
- Easy to assemble
- Sturdy construction
- Multiple resistance levels for challenging workouts
- Transport wheels make it easy to move the elliptical
- Heart rate monitor is built-in
What Could’ve Been Better
- No built-in workouts
We were disappointed to find that none of the models had built-in workouts. While not a deal breaker, workout programs make it easy to get started, especially for beginners.
All in all, the Klarfit Ellifit offers durability, multiple resistance levels and a compact design that makes it a great fit for users of all fitness levels.
