V-Fit MTE3 Manual Magnetic Elliptical Trainer : lose weight quickly

Was very straight forward to put together – needed a bit of help with the flywheel, but that’s because i’m a weed. The trainer is very sturdy and quiet and i love usihg it. It’s helping my leg muscles get some strength back as i have arthritis so this is a good way for me to get some strength in my legs without putting too much pressure on the knee joints, so perfect for me.

As usual, amazon’s delivery service was excellent. The instruction manual is written in quite abstract language which made the assembly more complicated than it needed to be; that said it didn’t take long at all. The cross trainer is sturdy, albeit slightly wobbly compared to the professional gym standard ones, but excellent value for money and a great piece of home exercise kit.

I love it i lost 1stone in the first month of use. Easy to put together and the instruments show you what you’ve done. Here are the specifications for the V-Fit MTE3 Manual Magnetic Elliptical Trainer:

  • Magnetic resistance system with friction-free 4.5kg cast iron flywheel and 8-step dial adjust resistance adjustment
  • Synchronised, dual action elliptical function with forward and reverse motion
  • Large non-slip footplates with a 28cm / 11″ stride length
  • Single screen 6-function exercise monitor
  • Assembled dimensions L 112cm x W 75cm x H 160cm x Wt 35.1kg
  • Maximum user weight 110kg / 242lbs / 17.2 stones

Fairly simple to put together it does an okay job. I would prefer to spend a bit more money and get a high spec machine. For a beginner who wants to get into exercising absolutely fine.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • fab for money and easy to assemble
  • Good piece of home gym kit!
  • lose weight quickly

Easy to put together, very quiet-hardly makes a noise and a very good price for the quality of it.

Only gave 4 **** because i thought it wasnt that easy to put together. But someone handy would find it easy. As instructions were very clear.

    Bought this from amazon and it was delivered in a couple of days, it is a well made product, very robust, assembly was quite easy but me being an engineer it should have been, other not so handy people may find it tricky especially connecting the speed control cable. It is very smooth in operation and i would consider it a very good purchase, very pleased with it.

    The box was delivered within 2 days. Called up the seller and they were happy to ship the missing parts. Instructions could have been better as you won’t go too far if you just read the instructions and not use your own mind. Was able to assemble in an hour’s time but difficult for somebody to do it alone. Need 2 to assemble and my wife was happy to help as i bought it for her. It has been almost a month and my wife uses it every day and she is pretty happy with it. Doesn’t make much noise and occupy little space. All readings come fine except the pulse rate which i couldn’t figure out how to get it. Anyway, i don’t care about that. What it does is solve the basic aim to having some exercise at home.

    Fab for money and easy to assemble. This is the first time i have ordered home gym equipment, i did need my hubby to carry the item but once it was in the right room i assembled myself with relative ease. The only awkward bit was connecting the resistance wire which would have been easier with two people but i managed on my own. I am only used to gym cross trainers and although this is a much simnpler version it does the job. Its very quiet and doesn’t take up much space. I like that you have the option to go backwards on it too. Not sure the calorie counter is that accurate but the timer is good. Over all i am impressed with the machine.

    Fairly simple to put together although the instructions aren’t always clear. Great piece of equipment for the price, pretty quiet and stable plus it doesn’t take up too much room.
