Received damaged

How can I come instore to collect my item as a click and collect order only to find the plug adapter has been bent making it unsafe and useless . Explain to me how am I supposed to use this machine now please. This is extremely disappointing and not worth the price.

Excellent machine but a limited shelf life

Bought this in June 2020 when gyms were closed and it's an excellent machine for working out on, as good as many much more expensive machines I've used in numerous gyms over the year. I kept on using this at home even when gyms opened, but sadly after a couple of years of using it 3-4 times a week the machine has started to have some problems and a large crack has appeared at the bottom of the main stanchion in the middle which causes the machine to make unbearable and extremely loud squeaking noises when you use it. As it's just over 2 years old it's out of warranty so I've had to take apart and throw away which is a shame as it was excellent, but it seems that the machine isn't really built to last so don't expect to keep using it for many years (but then it will probably gather dust in a lot of peoples houses after 1-2 months anyway so won't be an issue)

Just what I wanted

I am so pleased with this purchase. It’s very sturdy. It doesn’t squeak. It had perfect instructions, and even a video online, on how to put it together. It’s compact in size. It works perfectly and I am already feeling the benefit after a few days. The price, for what it is, is excellent. It was delivered quickly. Honestly, I am thrilled to bits with it.

Great exercise cross trainer.

I am over 60 and was looking for a piece of exercise equipment as I can’t do impact exercise like running any more. This cross trainer is excellent for me. I like how stable it is. I like the different programs which you can use. I can use it with my mobile too. Love it and as I hate exercise bikes which kill my backside I can’t recommend it highly enough to people of my age. Well worth the money and it was easy to put together!

Great cross trainer

Absolutely cracking piece of equipment. Only had a couple of weeks but the range is very smooth and most importantly quiet. We bought a Reebok cross trainer which squeaked and broke after only a week of use and was much more expensive.

First cross trainer

I’ve never had a cross trainer and I wanted something mid-range. I spent hours looking online and reading reviews before settling on this one. I’ve had it for a week and so far I’m really pleased with my decision. It took me and my husband max 1 hour to put together, without rushing so as not to lose any parts! The instructions are basically 17 pictures and they were really simple to follow. There’s no squeaking, no noisy flywheel, doesn’t feel cheap at all, pretty sturdy (although I am only 5ft3) and doesn’t move around on the laminate floor. The screen is big and has a bit at the top to hold your phone, tablet, kindle etc which is handy. Lots of modes depending on the kind of workout, or you can just freewheel. The only thing I’m struggling with is the Domyos E Connected. Can’t get past the log in screen on my phone, got logged in on my tablet but not been able to get it working yet. Will keep trying! Overall I’m really pleased with my purchase and would recommend to anyone who is also looking for a decent cross trainer without spending a fortune.

Been good x’ing

Quick delivery, very solid, easy to assemble, enjoying it greatly

The benefits of a cross-trainer

Cross-training is an excellent cardiovascular activity. It is low-impact and helps to: - develop your endurance - tone your entire body To improve your cardio-respiratory and muscular fitness, the World Health Organization recommends getting at least 2.5 hours of moderate-intensity physical activity every week.

Why is the range of motion important?

This bike has a 12.59" stride length. As you know, ellipticals work all of your muscle groups (lower and upper limbs, torso, back, and core). So the more you move, the more your muscles work, and the more intense the activity is. The result: You burn more calories!


Flywheel: 15.5 lbs. Pedaling is smoother with a heavier flywheel!

A virtual trainer

To track your training, the EL500 offers 6 functions: calories, distance, workout time, speed, heart rate (hand sensors), and cadence. You have 9 training programs with different levels (6 for burning calories, 6 for getting in shape, and 6 for improving endurance). A great way to stay motivated!

A connected cross-trainer

To stay motivated and push your limits, connect your device with the compatible Econnected and Kinomap apps. Econnected: Set a weekly time, distance, or calorie goal. Your performance is recorded and you can track your stats. Kinomap: Sync up your workouts with real landscapes. Enjoy a unique experience: at your own pace or in challenge mode, alone or with the Kinomap community.

Tracking your heart rate

Comes with pulse sensors. Your heart rate is displayed after a few seconds on the console screen. It is also compatible with a heart rate belt (not included) that can be connected to the console. Individuals with a pacemaker should not use the heart rate hand sensor function.

Adjust your cross-trainer

Various adjustments: Adjustment of the pedal position (closer to or farther from the handlebars). The front position is good for those under 5'9" tall. The rear position is good for those over 6'1" tall.

Adjusting the stability on your cross-trainer

For optimal comfort, use DF 920 floor mats under your machine. They will enable you to: optimize the stability of the bike when in use, reduce vibrations and noise, and protect your floor. Our cross-trainers have 2 stabilizers at the rear for good stability during use, regardless of your flooring.

Moving your cross-trainer

Wheels at the front for easy moving. To move your equipment, stand in front of it. Block the machine with your foot while pushing down on the handlebars to swing it up so it is resting on its front wheels. Gently push it to where you want.
