Product Description

Amazon.com

Sleek and quiet, the Eclipse 1100 HR/A elliptical cross trainer from Fitness Quest makes a terrific home workout accessory. The trainer showcases a unique, patented orbital linkage system that provides you with a smooth elliptical pattern as you work out. As a result, the trainer's quiet, low-impact stride feels completely natural and is exceptionally smooth through the entire range of motion. The machine's expanded electronics package, meanwhile, includes an easy-to-use fitness computer that tracks time, speed, distance, and approximate calories burned. And thanks to the 10 preset workout programs and two heart rate control programs, you can easily define a workout pace that's comfortable yet challenging.

Another handy feature is the 1100 HR/A's focus bar, which features built-in hand pulse sensors for immediate heart rate readings. This gives you a convenient way to keep track of your heart rate, helping you stay within the target zone and maximize your calorie burn. Other details include large, slip-resistant foot pedals designed for stability and ample foot room, a 15-inch stride length, a water bottle holder and reading rack, and a set of bottom wheels for easy transport. The trainer, which holds up to 275 pounds, measures 22.5 by 64 by 41 inches (W x H x D), weighs 90 pounds, and carries a one-year warranty.

About Elliptical Trainers
Elliptical trainers represent the next wave of advancement in low-impact cardiovascular exercise machines and continue to grow in popularity. By simulating motions experienced through walking, stepping, cycling, and skiing, elliptical machines allow for a smooth and fluid motion while building strength in the arms and legs. Similar to the exercise position for treadmills, elliptical trainers are used by standing in an upright position while holding the handrails of the machine. With elliptical trainers, however, your feet remain in the foot pedals throughout the exercise regimen and circulate in a smooth and seamless motion, resulting in little to no impact on the knees, back, and hips.

Elliptical trainers are compatible for all ages and fitness levels and allow you to select the difficulty level through the incline and intensity settings. Additionally, elliptical trainers allow you to determine the complexity of your workout based on your needs, all while listening to music, watching television, or reading a magazine while exercising in the comfort and safety of your own home.

Although different types of elliptical trainers offer an assortment of features, many of them include an array of challenging programs, forward and reverse directional movement, EKG grip pulse handles, a lightweight portable design with easy fold-up capability, and a monitor displaying calories burned, distance, speed, time, and heart rate. Other types of exercise machines, namely treadmills and bikes, offer excellent cardiovascular exercise and muscular training for the legs in a forward-motion exercise. Elliptical trainers take this to the next level by offering an upper and lower body workout with dual motion, challenging and diverse programs, and a low-impact exercise machine that won't strain sensitive joints.

The 1100HR/A failed for me in the same way I've seen others note: the foot platform bearing wheel assembly comes loose.

I highly recommend this machine for anyone looking for an Elliptical.

If you want a good Elliptical machine without paying over $1,000 (like the ones in the gym). This is a good choice.
It was painless putting it together. It has a digital display with optional modes. You can increase your speed and check our heartrate.
This is a very good value!

For the money...approx $300, you get a very reliable elliptical in the 1100HRA.

I took my time putting the thing together correctly, and as tight as I could get everything when I bought it a year and a half ago, and the thing is still tight as a drum.

A little squeaking developed recently and I was worried....greased the inner parts, to no avail....Then I discovered it was simply the foot platforms that were rubbing. A little white lithium under those platforms and presto, like new again.

Every time I've gotten into a steady 5x per week or so routine, I've been able to drop significant weight in no time.

It works. The trick is staying focused and motivated.

We needed something more than our treadmill and Gazelle. My wife saw this unit at an open house so we did some research on-line. It received high marks so we ordered it on-line. It was easy to put together but it does have some mass to it which is a good thing. We have been using it for 2 months and it is almost everything you could want in a home ellipse trainer without breaking the bank. My only wish is the electronics could be powered from the wall versus batteries (4C). We have since looked at many units costing more (~$200+) and they were cheap, flimsy and light. This unit is solid and really gives you a great workout. I have lost 10 lbs so far. I would highly recommend it.

I take Amazon ratings into account when deciding to make a big purchase. After seeing a 4.5 star rating I felt pretty confident with this purchase.

The first one I received broke after 2 months of occasional usage by my wife and I. (Both moderately fit). I went through the hassle of disassembling the first one and sending it back. Got the second one in the mail and it broke the same way within 3 weeks.

I got the impression from Eclipse that this is a fairly common issue. The customer service rep knew exactly what I was talking about when I said "The linkage below the foot platform has come loose". Apparently there is no way to fix it and it requires a replacement by mail every time.

Eclipse is happy to send me a third replacement machine. Fortunately Amazon has decided to offer me a refund as an alternative.

If you buy this, keep the box because you'll probably have to send it back!

Amazon - good
Eclipse - bad

I've had my trainer for almost three weeks now and I love it. I used to walk but my ankles, knees and shins would ache on the third day and I would have to take a break, then I would fall out of the routine. This machine offers a smooth workout that really is no-impact yet works up quite a sweat. It is easy to do and the built in programs are great. It is a little wobbly, but not enough to make me feel unsafe. I would have given 5 stars, but I cannot get the heart monitor to work (haven't tried to re-assemble yet.) Putting it together took about an hour, and I am pretty handy with tools, but it wasn't difficult (getting it out of the box was the hardest part!) It's a little noisy sometimes, but not loud enough to be bothersome. The manual does say to tighten up the screws and bolts every now and then. The website I purchased from offered an extended warranty, which made me feel much better about buying this model. For the money, this is probably one of the best you could get.

DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR WIFE TO HIT YOUR UPS DELIVERY GUY WITH A BROOM.

I purchased the Eclipse because of the reviews on Amazon - mostly they indicated that the machine worked great, but would break after two years of daily use. This I can live with. Heck, if an exercise machine isn't a rack for partially-dirty clothing at this point and I've put in 800 hours of sweat and blood into it, it's still far cheaper than joining an exercise club.

So, I put it together. Assembly was easy. My eight year old and I slapped the thing together with a minimum amount of cussing. He knows I don't like him cussing.

My son was particularly happy about the included water bottle. For some reason he has a minor obsession with them. Hydration is his mantra.

I put my exercise togs on and started ellipticising, or whatever you call it. I set the timer for 40 minutes, and made it through 35 minutes of silent sweeaty cardio. The silent part is nice, because my wife is a writer and comes out and hits me with a broom if I make too much noise.

5 minutes left, right? Then the thing started making a horrendous clunking on the downstep on the right side. My thoughts? Maybe it's left handed. In order to avoid making my wife angry and getting her broom out, I stopped.

The next day, I called customer service. They indicated that the part to replace was a little bearing. They'd ship it out in 7-10 days. Hmm, I get to pay to repair the thing on the first go 'round, after one excercise session?

So, I waited.

Bearing shows up. I don't know what they feed the people who tighten the bolts on these things in China, but they must have bulging arms and tendons of rippling steel.
