Confidence Pro 2-in-1 Cross Trainer – : PRO 2in1 cross trainer

A reasonable compromise on price, size and functions. Assembled by 1 person in under 90 minutes. They provide tools but if you have your own spanners you might prefer to use them than the supplied ‘bike spanner’. Reasonably compact for storage. Although the description doesn’t say so, you can easily take the poles off and drop the saddle so as to leave a much more compact item to store. 1 – the centre poles don’t fully align with the tubes they sit in so putting them back in is more difficult than it should be – hopefully this is just a one-off with mine not a feature. )the flywheel is big and reasonably heavy, so you do get a reasonable work out. Obviously this is built to a price so there are compromises in all areas when compared to pro-gym equipment but they’re probably no issue for the casual user (though if you’re very tall or very short you might not find it adjusts far enough). 2 – the pulse monitor is only on the central bike ‘handlebars’, not on the cross trainer poles. )sports hq were selling this at under £100. I paid almost as much for a ‘mini bike’ which is just a flywheel and pedals, so this is excellent value for money.

It’s great as a cross trainer but i couldn’t reach the arms and the pedals properly at the same time to use it as a bike. Though i am quite short it shouldn’t be that hard, so it was only ever used as a cross trainer. It looks good though but makes a horrible chain pulling sound every time you go around so can be annoying for people around you. It was a bit of a bugger to put together aswell as instructions were not good.

Although the delivery was very prompt as in one of the other reviews my cross trainer also came with holes drilled in the wrong place to be assembled properly. To get replacement parts from the company was like getting blood out of a stone and took several phone calls and emails before they finally arrived after nine weeks. The company just kept giving excuse after excuse and although the aparatus is value for money i would never deal with this company again.

This it a solid piece of kit and well worth the £99. It comes part assembled and it pretty easy to put together. There was a broken knob head (plastic) on delivery but the backup from the importers was first class and a replacement arrived next day. I really cannot complain at all and my father has been using it since purchase without a problem so it scores top marks from me, mainly because the quality of this item has far exceeded my expectations.

This product is great for home keep fit. Easy enough to fix together, although a little patience required.And the computer is simple enough, you can switch between calories burnt or distance etc.

My husband bought me this for christmas after reading the good reviews. He didn,t put it together till the new year. I found it very noisy, the plastic on the side has been rubbing against the wheel , we,ve solved that now by loosening the side panel. Now when i,m pedaling theres a grinding noise. I wanted to return it but he doesn,t want to send it back because it took so long to assemble .

  1. Had a couple of minor issues (pages of manual missing and small knob missing) but these were quickly resolved (manual was e mailed to me and knob was quickly posted). Otherwise, a sturdy piece of equipment.

    1. Pedals marked left and right were incorrect, we assembled as per instructions resulting in a broken right hand pedal. Any chance of a replacement?.

      1. Had to buy this as we have just got our two new puppies and could not get to the gym, we will still carry on using this machine when we go back to the gym as its a good back up at home to help keep in shape.

    1. Great price for a nice solid machine. . Delivered a day earlier than estimated which was great. Took about 45 minutes to assemble. It looks harder than what it actually is from the instructions. Build quality is great for the price. Digital display is easy to read and simple to use. Being a cross trainer and an exercise bike is a great space saver. The only fault i would say is the seat it rather hard but a gel bike seat cover will sort that out. Overall i’m very happy with it and would recommend it.
