Enjoy an efficient full-body workout without heading to the gym with the Sole E95 elliptical trainer. Boasting a heavy 30-pound flywheel, a high gear ratio not found on most comparable models, and a pair of upper body handles, the E95 delivers an extremely smooth workout with plenty of top-end resistance. Users will also appreciate the unique oversize and adjustable foot pedals, which were designed in collaboration with a leading physical therapist and sports enthusiast. The pedals are not only extra large, but also feature a 2-degree inward slope that reduces the ankle and knee stress that's common in other elliptical machines. The collaboration also produced a revolutionary foot pedal angle adjustment not found on any other elliptical. Taking into account that not everyone walks the same way, Sole engineers made the E95's pedals adjustable to fit the way you walk. This also reduces the likelihood of numb toes and sore Achilles tendons.
Workout specifics include 20 resistance levels, 10 total programs (including two custom and two heart-rate programs), and a 20-inch stride length. Perhaps the handiest feature from a user perspective, however, is the easy-to-use electronic console, which integrates a red/green display, a cooling fan, and a water bottle holder. Additional features include stationary handlebars with built-in pulse sensors for monitoring your heart rate; a heart rate chest strap for hands-free pulse monitoring; heavy-duty rails with smooth-riding wheels on the back; and a rear plastic shroud that adds additional stability for aggressive use. The E95, which offers a maximum weight capacity of 400 pounds, carries the following warranties: lifetime on the frame, five years on all parts and electronics, and two years on the labor.

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 400lb weight rating was above what we needed, but my thoughts are that if its rated to 400lbs that means its built like a tank. And it is. We live in a 2nd floor condo and thankfully with help from the freight company (who was excellent - they delivered on time, when I wanted it, and the guy helped get this 300lbs machine up the stairs with me!!) Definitely had 2 strong people available to move this beast around. It does have wheels on the front once all put together but it is still damn heavy. We are heavier people who got this to lose weight, so we needed to ensure that this machine would stand up to the abuse we were about to give it. It has not dissapointed, and we are both losing weight pretty effectively at this point.
About the shipping - many reviews here say the shipping was awful. I disagree. The shipping (via ABF) was exactly as I expected, they called, setup a time, showed up when expected, and delivered the product and even helped us get it up the stairs. The box was undamaged (but incredibly dirty), and nothing was out of place. I just asked the delivery guy if he could possibly help get this up the stairs, he said sure and did. And I tipped him nicely for helping me. I think some people in this thread need to do less freaking on the phone with the shipping company and more talking to the delivery guys ;)
Stuff we like:
Its very stable and solid, I have never felt the machine wobble or feel unsteady.
The incline feature rocks, and the preset programs are great. We use the Interval setting pretty much exclusively.
Smooooth, the heavy flywheel and long stride makes this a very comfortable unit.
Easy assembly - I used some real tools I have and didn't use the tools that came with the unit, but it went together great. There was one bolt that we found lose that made a creeking noise but that was fixed. (more on that below) I definitely recommend having some good tools around to build this to get the proper torque on some of the components.
Good display, lots of info and features. The RF heart rate monitor is great!
Stuff that took some getting used to or we don't like:
Squeaks. Initially we had a squeak from the center stalk... I found it to be a lose screw below where the center stalk goes in, a few twists with a box wrench fixed that ( this bolt was not noted in the instructions as needing to be tightened so it probably just came lose in shipping). We also developed some squeaking from the foot pads. I would recommend taking some wrenches and tightening the 4 bolts/nuts that attach the foot pad to the tilt machanism under the foot pads. After doing that this thing is very quiet. The manual specifically says "if it squeaks, tighten it" before calling warranty support.
The fan is almost pointless... moves almost no air to you. Is more effective as a while noise machine. Just get a floor fan to blow on you when working out.
The handle bar heart rate monitor seems to read low for me. The RF chest monitor works great though!
I was hesitant to give this a 5 star due to some squeaks and noises we had when we had this for the first few days, but those are all remedied, and this thing has worked flawlessly since even with constant use by us every day. We both highly recommend this.
As far as the ASSEMBLY.. was a breeze except for 1 flaw... the bolt that comes preinstalled in the neck of the thing was hard to reach, which caused us to accidentally drop the wrench into the casing. Thought this was no big deal, we would just tip it over and shake it out. Well, to make along story short.. when tipping it forward if you drop a nut, wrench, bolt etc, REMEMBER to hold the foot pedals. My husband tipped it, I looked to see if the wrench would fall out and BLAMMO - the rail came forward and knocked me senseless. 2 hours later - 8 staples in my head and a tetanus shot in my arm we were ready to again try to get the wrench free again. we tipped it again, this time holding on to the legs and the wrench slid - partway. We taped a magnet onto a hanger and were able to fish it out without further problem. (also use the hanger to fish the wires through the neck.. that ended up being pretty darn easy as well.
Long story short.. do NOT be afraid of the assembly, just go slowly and dont try to rush any part. Everything is labeled well and the instructions are pretty simple. I just wish they had made a better way to affix the neck than the 4 bolts which are somewhat hidden inside a large plastic casing. Drop anything and you are spending more time trying to get it out than putting together the machine.
