I had been using a Proform elliptical for a few years until it started to breakdown. It had a 18 inch stride and provided a good workout. After the Proform started to give me problems I knew it was time to start looking for a new machine. My first inclination was to go with a Schwinn since my parents had a Schwinn recumbent cycle and I had always thought it was a quality product. I read the reviews on the Schwinn 420,430, 431 and the new 460. I live near a Dicks sporting goods and went to see what they had to offer, although they had Schwinn recumbents on the floor, they didn't have any Schwinn ellipticals to try.

They did have 2 Sole models, the E25 and the E95. Once I stepped on the Sole E25 I felt the quality of the machine, the E95 was even better but at 80+ inches long it was not of interest but the E25 was. The Sole E25 was priced at $950 plus tax. I then started reviewing other similar ellipticals and came upon the Spirit Esprit line which I came to learn was made by the same company that makes Sole.

In my reviewing I discovered that flywheel weight is important, the heavier the better it seems, that's the thing that gives you the smooth feel, instead of a choppy run where you exert effort on each peddle on each individual stroke. It's hard to explain until you feel the difference but the flywheel weight makes the difference. Cheap machines don't mention flywheel weight because they don't have it.

The Schwinn's come with a 25 lb flywheel the Sole E25 has a 23 lb flywheel, this machine has a 30 lb flywheel and you can feel it. It takes a little effort to get this thing going, but once you do it wants to just keep going.

This is an excellent machine! Better than the LifeFitness machines at the gym.

Easy to assemble - comes with all required tools - though use of a ratchet is recommended for speed. The only "hiccup" with assembly is attaching the pole that holds the display to the main unit - requires a little bit of a wrestling match (a helper would be a good idea here - I was solo). There are only 4 steps in the assembly and the bolts are separated by step. If you have basic "toolbox skills" this is a very easy assembly.

Have them leave it in your garage or by the door if you don't have any stairs to negotiate. You can cut the box at the bottom and lift up - then move all the parts to the assembly area. This makes for an easy clean-up. The only heavy part is the flywheel - but it is easy to move as it has wheels.

Also, the feet are heavy duty cushioned rubber. It is not necessary to order a Mat. In fact, if you are planning on moving it into position for a workout a Mat would be a waste of money. We have nice hardwoods and I am confident this machine is not going to harm them.

Ordered from Amazon on Friday night for $999 with free shipping. It was delivered on Wednesday. I live in Metro Atlanta and it was shipped from Arkansas. ABF shipping is great. First ring pick-up to a human being to arrange delivery...awesome experience.

The machine is attractive, movable, silent, and heavy duty. It has a great back-lit display panel with an ample rack capable of accommodating a large book (it is positioned so that you can comfortably read while exercising). A storage cubby for MP3 etc. and a nice, properly sized water bottle holder on the pole. There are several workout modes or you can use manual and just go. Resistance is 1-20.

A very quick summary of my experience with the Spirit Esprit EL-455 goes like this: I haven't been able to use my machine in the two months since I have purchased it. Details follow below.

I bought the machine in the middle of January. Delivery was within the time frame expected for this type of product, absolutely no complain there.

Assembling the machine is not difficult. Simply follow the manual and you should not have any problems except that one part was missing. Not too big of a deal, it was just the front cover which is there only for aesthetic. I thought that I could just call later to have that part shipped. The machine is heavy so if you need to take it up of down the stairs, have one or two people helping you.

After assembly, I tried the machine at a low pace. Everything seemed to be working perfectly: the machine was fully functional, stable and very smooth. All that I wanted. However, in my first workout, as I pushed harder and increased speed, I noticed a clunking noise coming from the left side. I stopped thinking that the problem might be coming from the machine not sitting perfectly leveled in on the floor. I used a level, made some adjustment and tried the machine again. The clunking noise was still there. Going back to the manual, it says to tightened up every screw before calling service. I did just that but it did not solve the problem.

So I called Spirit Fitness to service my machine. Waited on the line for a while, the period after the Christmas holidays is apparently the busiest of the year. I talked to someone who then ordered that parts be shipped to me and who told me that someone who call me within three days to schedule an appointment to service my machine. I ordered at the same time the front cover that was missing.
