Over the past 8 months, I have been in a serious exercise driven weight loss plan. The 2007 elliptical has been my primary source of cardio exercise and I credit it with much of my 40 lbs weight loss between August 2015 and March 2016 with an average of 7 hours a week spent on the elliptical during that time. The last few weeks of March, I noticed it was making stranger noises and that the flywheel was not working well. It gave up the ghost on 3/31 when I called in a repair service that informed me that a bolt had sheared off and that repairs were not much less than buying a new machine. I asked the repairman about ellipticals and he said Sole was a good brand overall since he works on them all. He also kept telling me of newer features on newer machines which were actually already available on my 2007 machine, so grain of salt. Apparently, I was pretty cutting edge back in 2007. And to be honest, I don't care about features like that so much. My FitBit is more helpful with estimates and such.
I started my research. I wanted to see what had changed in nine years. Lots of sites, lots of reading. And Sole was still one of the top brands and on many of the top 10 lists along with some other machines. Only half of those top 10 lists had machines with strides of 20 inches or more (more than were available in 2007) so I had a longer list to choose from. Various nuances crossed off other brands and I was ultimately led to brand loyalty with a new Sole. I was also desperate since I didn't want to lose momentum with my exercise time and goals. I debated between this model and the top rated E95 (that was really on the top 10 lists). I have 30-40 more lbs. to go in my weight loss goals so a good machine and then weight maintenance exercise after that is important to me. I was tempted by the E95 but couldn't justify the significant price jump nor the longer wait time for delivery which was an extra week at the time. That $500 price difference was half of a new machine in a few years if I wear this new one out with the abuse I put it through. So the E25 was my pick. I ordered it and it was delivered 3 days later.
The box arrived from Amazon shipping with one corner completely wrecked but the packing was secure and there was less damage than I expected. One of the handles has a half dollar sized chip off the paint and the styrofoam packing had rubbed so hard on some pieces that they were white and have remained so although I haven't done the heavy, heavy scrubbing that should remove the heavy white film--this is on the floor base that is near my wall and not easy for me to reach and clean now that it is assembled. Should have done that first but didn't think ahead on that.
We had the machine fully unpacked and assembled in less than two hours. It helped that I was pretty intimately acquainted with the earlier model although my dad did most of the assembling--but I unpacked and could see where stuff was going pretty easily. This one has some improvements with a slimmer lined design and a handle that helps lift and move it more easily on its wheels.
But the most important part is that it is much quieter and much more smooth running. I can move faster with less vibration. I go fast in several bursts of speed now because it is fun and doesn't feel reckless. I have used it almost daily for three weeks, averaging 1.5 hours a day on it. My husband can stand to be in the same room now. It is not silent, but it is quiet. I actually read my Kindle while using it, attaching it with a big rubberband over the display, but it is quiet enough to hear the TV at normal volumes. It is smooth running and the stride is still fine for my knees. Overall the controls are better and there are more readouts and options than my previous model. I don't care about the speakers and I actually preferred the cup holder on the older model, but overall, this is an improvement. It underestimates my calories burned for size and weight but I would rather underestimate than overestimate. And I rarely use the programs for heartrate monitoring, calories burned or even timers. I prefer to get on, go, and go some more until I have to or want to stop.
The instruction manual is not the worst I've seen but it is a "one size fits all models" which isn't useful when things are not exactly the same across models. But I am happy with this elliptical so far and will give it five stars despite some minor glitches. I don't expect it to last me 9 years this time since I don't plan for it to gather much dust at all. But if it gives me at least a few good years, I will feel I got my money's worth.
Regardless, this thing is incredible.
Be careful when you order it, as this package is heavy as hell. It was intended for a room upstairs at my house and I had to carry it up one piece at a time. The base, which includes the fly wheel and foot positions is a two person job. We kept the bottom part of the box underneath it and lifted by the box to bring it upstairs. Again, HEAVY! If you plan on keeping it downstairs, it will be a much easier job (just slide the thing if need-be).
Assembly was mildly difficult. I assembled it myself and the instructions were lacking. Just giant pictures with parts and small numbers all over the place. I'm not saying you have to be a rocket scientist to put it together, but it does take a bit of time. The main step I had issues with was step 4 (the last step). There are a number of covers that are supposed to be put on (seem to be mainly for aesthetic value, but I could be wrong). I decided to give up on the last 4 covers, since I couldn't figure out where they would go or why they would go there. The instructions say things like, "Put the [ball joint cover] #112 (#112 isn't labeled on the parts and the picture is microscopic) on using screw #49 and #52." So you have to flip back four pages to figure out which screws are which, and you never have any idea what part #112 is. Not very intuitive.
Once I got it up and running though, everything was a breeze. I think the functionality outweighs anything bad that can be said about the instruction manual.
The fan on the machine isn't superb, but chances are, if you have a room dedicated to workout equipment, you've got a stand alone fan or a ceiling fan in there anyway. I haven't tried out the speakers (and don't plan to) because I have a computer set up in front of the elliptical that I use for all of my entertainment purposes.
It came with a chest strap for heart beat monitoring that works like a charm. Most ellipticals do NOT come with this. The strap comes with an extra battery. NOTICE! There is ALREADY a battery in it! I stripped a screw trying to find out. It also comes with a water bottle (thanks!) that fits perfectly in the designed storage area in the face of the screen.
No noises, very stable. The structure of the machine feels well made while the covers are made of plastic. Love the screen. Very large. Also, the screen has a lip on it that will fit a Kindle or an iPad if you're into that sort of thing.
I highly recommend this machine if you want to start getting into shape. Just remember, personal ellipticals are expensive. DO NOT LET IT TURN INTO "that thing that I lay my clothes on." Personal responsibility, need, motivation, and financial stability need to be taken into consideration before purchasing something like this. If you're ready, I highly recommend this machine.
