Reebok Cross Trainer Review: The RE14211BL I-Train+ Elliptical


Are you ready to embark on a serious fitness programme? If so, you're going to need to invest in some fitness equipment or join a gym or health club. You should know that many people prefer owning their own fitness equipment and working out at home, when it's convenient for them, rather than travelling to a fitness facility where they're likely to have to wait in line to use the machines. Over time, investing in quality home fitness equipment is the most economical way to begin and stay true to a fitness regimen. Here's some information about a budget-priced home elliptical Reebok trainer, the RE14211BL I-Train+.

Overall Rating:4.5 out of 5.0 stars

Key Features:

We particularly like the easy-to-read console display on the RE14211BL I-Train+ elliptical. The display provides data on a 70 x 70mm LCD screen. A feature like this engages and motivates the user, especially to 30- to 40-year-old demographic that the machine targets. Research has shown that many people in this age group have begun fitness programmes and are steadily becoming more serious about their fitness goals. At the same time, these people aren't ready to invest significant sums in their home fitness equipment.

Professional fitness trainers and consultants often recommend elliptical trainers, specifically those made by Reebok. These are reliable and sturdy machines that have many features not found on other ellipticals at a price point like A�275.00. Users find that the extra features keep them motivated and interested. The machine is flexible enough to accommodate a variety of workouts for users with differing fitness levels. We especially like the variability of the RE14211BL I-Train+ and found the heart rate monitor an important and easy to use feature. This elliptical's compact design makes it perfect for use in situations where space is limited. The machine has a solid look and feel and we're pleased to recommend to anyone just starting out on a fitness programme.
