New Balance, the company known for its high-quality apparels is now engaged in the manufacture of fitness equipment. New Balance 8000 Elliptical Trainer review cites this equipment as one of the company’s most popular innovations. If you are one of those considering buying this exercise machine, it is best to know the pros and cons, the strengths and weaknesses of this workout machine.
New Balance 8000 Elliptical Trainer review cites that one of its strengths is the combination of 18-inch and 20-inch adjustable stride length. This feature will benefit most users. Taller people are comfortable with the 20-inch stride length while those that prefer faster strides may use the 18-inch stride length.
New Balance 8000 Elliptical Trainer review says that the maximum allowed user weight allowed of 300 lbs is acceptable even for heavier users. Most brands offer the same or lower maximum user weight at higher price. This is an indicator of the stability of this equipment.
New Balance 8000 Elliptical Trainer review looks at the foot pedals and finds them wide enough to make room for the most comfortable position of your feet. The foot platform, oversize as it is, provides a balanced support for your body and adds to the stability of the machine.
One of its weaknesses, according to New Balance 8000 Elliptical Trainer review, is the warranty offered by the manufacturer which is ten years for frame, two years for electronics, and one year for parts. A wiser buyer would look for longer warranty especially for brands that have not yet proven their reputation in making high-quality and durable equipment. Add to this is the fact that the warranty does not cover labor and shipping costs. Therefore, buying this machine involves some risk. Unless you want your exercise machine to arrive at your doorstep already due for repair, you may want to look for other brands that offer a more decent warranty.
As a summary, most buyers are skeptical about buying this new equipment. New Balance 8000 Elliptical Trainer review says that this is probable because the brand is not an established name in terms of the manufacture of fitness equipment. Although it already has an established reputation in the apparels business, the same cannot be said for its workout machines, especially now that more known brands offer more competitive equipment features at slightly higher prices but at guaranteed quality and durability.
