The Spirit EL255 elliptical trainer is built around a quite heavy 19 lb flywheel, which combined with commercial grade bearings and bushings, (stuff you cant see but they make a difference) results in a smooth, stable experience and durability.
Stride length is a reasonable 18 inches and the foot pedals are lover sized, making it easier to find the optimal foot position. Maximum user weight is 300 lbs.
The display on the Spirit EL255 elliptical trainer is reasonably easy to read and controls 5 pre-set and 2 custom programs. Not a huge amount but sufficient for most users. Heart rate is measured with contact hand grips.
Extras include docking station for MP3/Ipod player and built-in speakers as well as a water bottle holder.
Warranty on the Spirit EL 255 elliptical trainer is reasonable, lifetime on the frame and brake; 1 year on parts and labor.
The Spirit EL255 elliptical trainer is a well executed model but competing in a very crowded segment. While it does nothing exceptional it compares well to most other similar units. If you like its features and the price is right, it would be a good choice.
