Frontier Olympus Max EXTENDABLE Long Stride Cross Trainer, Initial Impressions – a Great Piece of Kit.

I acquired 1 of these in february, and decided to cancel my gymnasium membership and alternate among jogging and applying this. I am so happy i did, as i saved income from my membership cancellation, improved my exercise degrees and it provides me the adaptability of teaching at home and not acquiring to generate to the health and fitness center. The cross trainer is not as hefty and strong as what i was utilised to at the health club, but it can be the most sturdiest and very well created cross trainer that i used outside of a health club. The large fly wheel also helps make the training truly clean, and i uncovered that the work out is pretty rough applying the pre-programmed configurations and immediately after utilizing the cross trainer several periods a week for fifty minutes per session, when i returned to the health and fitness center my old gymnasium exercise session seemed considerably also simple. In summary – it’s well made, terrific quality and likely the best invest in i’ve made this year.

The frontier olympus max was a good previous chunk of change at £800, so although the critiques weren’t many, they have been unanimous in their praise for this x-trainer. We had just the one particular working day when we could settle for supply. Speaking to sensational bargains could not have been much easier, they returned my e-mails immediately and had been genuinely accommodating as far as supporting ensure the shipping and delivery arrived on the working day we required. (this wasn’t an express supply, just date particular, i would envision convey deliveries would incur a surcharge)the packaging was superior whilst when the courier arrived the box was upside down with the ‘this way up’ arrow pointing down, not genuinely an challenge owing to the very good packaging elements inside of the box. With the aid of my wife, we assembled the x-trainer in about an hour. The recommendations are effortless sufficient to stick to. Bizarre to obtain a designed in taiwan sticker nonetheless on a component of a german engineered equipment, probably some parts are less costly from there?employing the device is really fulfilling, the large fly-wheel provides a wonderful easy motion and the pre-applications are excellent. I am about 5’10’ and my spouse is only about 5′ tall, the adjustable stride is a need to, it satisfies the entire spouse and children. The only problem so significantly is, each time i want to use it, my daughter and her fiancé appeared to have popped round and are hogging the machine.

    This machine is ideal, and good for anyone who wants a strong and adequate cross trainer, without costing the earth. . After 5 years of going to the gym, this machine will pay for itself in two years, and the sellers have been more than helpful. Getting used to the differences, from gym machine to this one, took a few tries.Now i can do my 44 approx minutes at 17kph and cutting my calories at the same amount (approx, 320) 3 mornings weekly. I am 79 years or age and have to set the machine at age 64, to keep within my normal heartbeat count. Finally i have the machine set on prog 1 and upped to level 3. Where at the gym i was set on 0, therefore this one is slightly smoother.

  4. Initial impressions – a great piece of kit. . Firstly the delivery – sensational bargains went out of their way to get the cross trainer to us ahead of time as we weren’t going to be at home on the scheduled days. No extra charge for this and they kept us informed as to when it would be delivered – excellent service. Assembly – it’s a large heavy item (no getting away from that) but assembly presented no problems and the instructions were clear and concise. This took about 90 minutes to put together. Quality and use – this is a well-made piece of engineering (robust and should last for years). It’s what you would expect from the germans and it works extremely well. The adjustable stride length is a must if more than one of you will be using the trainer. I am tall hence longer stride length and the mrs is shorter so needs the shorter setting. Most other trainers have no adjustment which makes it uncomfortable if your stride doesn’t match the machine.

    I bought one of these in february, and decided to cancel my gym membership and alternate between running and using this. I’m so glad i did, as i saved money from my membership cancellation, increased my fitness levels and it gives me the flexibility of training at home and not having to drive to the gym. The cross trainer is not as heavy and sturdy as what i was used to at the gym, but it’s the most sturdiest and well made cross trainer that i used outside of a gym. The heavy fly wheel also makes the workout really smooth, and i found that the workout is pretty tough using the pre-programmed settings and after using the cross trainer several times a week for 50 minutes per session, when i returned to the gym my old gym workout seemed far too easy. In summary – it’s well made, great quality and probably the best purchase i’ve made this year.

      1. Good xtrainer dreadful manual. The item was delivered one day early, no warning. As it says on the instructions to the delivery man that there will be someone to help carry the package, not getting in touch with us to expect the parcel is poor. Especially as our phone number was printed in big, fat font on the delivery labelthe product was well packed and every thing to the last screw was there. However the diagrams listing the parts and screws were not very accurate and relied a bit too much on one’s imagination. The actual instructions for building the xtrainer were ok. The product is good and solid. The user manual is absolutely useless and this is a great shame. This machine has a lot of unexplained functionality and the poor manual means that one would really need to struggle through very poor instructions to make full use of it. In the days of modern publishing technology there is no excuse for this.

    I checked reviews before purchasing and decided that the frontier olympus was for me. I definitely made the right decision, not only was it really easy to put together but the programs and settings are great for anyone who wants a real workout. I was initially worried that the programs wouldn’t be very difficult but they are just as good as the cross trainers in the gym. I have gone from working out 4 times a week at the gym, to working out at home on a daily basis. It’s just so much easier to do it from the comfort of your own home. I highly recommend this cross trainer.

      1. Silky smooth and quiet as the machines in the gym. I’ve been using this machine for a few months now and it really is as silky smooth and quiet as the ones in the gym. It arrived promptly and very well packed. It took only an hour or so to assemble, and was easier thanexpected with step by step instructions. I’ve been running for years and am really impressed by this reassuringly sturdy cross trainer. The multi-function touchscreen computer has a wide selection of programmes and modes, and the resistance is very progressiveover a wide range thanks to the better type of magnetic system. I also like that i’m not tied to dashing to the gym after work any more, and can now hop on the trainer whenever i wish to. This really feels like gym equipment at an affordable price. Overall an excellent piece of kit that looks good and is easy to use. The next challenge is to get my husband on it.
