If you are looking to buy a fitness elliptical machine and you have limited money or space, then you are going to want to read about the Vision Fitness Elliptical machine.
In the next few paragraphs, we are going to look at three models of ellipticals and 3 types of consoles that give you an amazing amount of flexibility. Vision Fitness Ellipticals come in three types of frames: traditional, folding, and compact. With each of these frames, you can choose either a premier, deluxe, or simple console. After you read about each of these choices you will be ready to decide which model is best for you.
The Vision Fitness Elliptical model X6000 uses the traditional frame and is 79 inches long, 27 inches wide, and 69 inches high. It features a 19.75 inch stride, oversized footpads, and ergonomic handles. Vision Fitness offers a lifetime warranty on the frame and magnetic brake, and a 3 year warranty on electronics and part.
If your space is limited, the next two models might be right for you.
The Vision Fitness Elliptical model X1500 uses the compact frame and is only 57 inches long, 26 inches wide, and 67 inches high. The stride is a bit shorter too, at only 18 inches. It features standard footpads and ergonomic handlebars. It also has a lifetime warranty on the frame and magnetic brake, but a shorter 2 year warranty on electronics and parts.
The Vision Fitness Elliptical model X6200 is the top of the line, and is built on their folding frame. The pedal arms fold so that the machine can be stored in much less space, with folded dimensions of only 42 inches long, 27 inches wide, and 69 inches high. Unfolded the dimensions are exactly the same as the tradition frame, and the stride is the same at 19.75 inches. This model features variable-durometer cushioned footpads and multi-position handgrips. There is a lifetime warranty for the frame and magnetic brake, and a 3 year warranty on electronics and parts.
