The newly redesigned XE 195's have arrived. When you try the elliptical for the first time you will say:
Feels like the one at the gym
I like the fans and the 20 inch stride!
The adjustable foot pedals are great
It feels solid
An unbeatable $1099!
Do not buy an elliptical until you try this one out!
A lot of people ask why buy the Spirit over the Sole. Well the parent companies make Sole for the sporting good stores and Spirit for specialty stores. The Spirit is a better choice because it uses better components and twice the warranty for around the same price. Sole tends to dump a lot of money in internet marketing, where Spirit spends it on the machine. Think Vizio vs.Sony. If I could get a Sony for around the same price, it really is a no brainer.
"Spirit has a long history of producing specification rich product with excellent value. The XE195 is a solid elliptical for the price with its inward angled pedals, adjustable heel and overall build quality. 5 year warranty plus the new tilting console and handlebar controls make the Spirit XE195 a super nice unit."
-Fitness Professor review-
Spirit Fitness built their first fitness product in 1983, with the simple goal of giving our customers the highest quality equipment to help them achieve their fitness goals.It is that same simple purpose which continues today in designing and developing every piece of equipment that bears the Spirit Fitness name. Over the last thirty years, their focus has always been—and will continue to be—delivering a quality experience with our equipment. We understand that our products are an investment and we design them to keep pace with your own longterm fitness goals. All of our products are produced in our ISO-certified factories for consistent quality.
Their other passion has always been on innovation that improves our customers’ experience. They were one of the first to integrate cooling fans on products; a high-quality fan is now standard on nearly all Spirit Fitness products. They also integrate audio speakers for MP3 players on most of their products. The number one reason people stop exercising is from boredom, and we know that if you are a little more comfortable, you will work-out longer and achieve your fitness goals that much faster.
These, along with many other exclusive features, are put into our products to help you achieve success. There are many companies that produce fitness equipment, but few that focus on the details that you will find in a Spirit Fitness product.
Some fitness equipment companies talk about the weight of their flywheel as though it were the most important part of the elliptical trainer. But a heavy flywheel can actually make it more difficult to use, and create an unsmooth pedaling motion. Instead, we focus on the kinetic energy at the foot pedal. Taking into account the flywheel weight, pulley diameters, belt length, belt tension, foot pedal angle, and stride length we have developed the perfect formula to assure the smoothest start and finish during each elliptical motion. The best way to feel the right kinetic energy is to get on a Spirit Fitness elliptical trainer and give it a workout.
Adjustable Foot Pedals
Our foot pedal has three different adjustment angles. Simply pull the handle on the back of the foot pedal and adjust from zero to five to ten degrees. This will allow you to find the most comfortable position for your gait pattern. This exclusive feature is found on our XE295 and XE395 elliptical trainers.
All Spirit Fitness elliptical trainers come with dual wheels on aluminum extruded tracks. Our custom-designed dual concave wheels give each pedal twice the support of a single wheel, which translates into a more stable pedaling motion. Combine this with our aircraft-quality T6069 extruded aluminum wheel track and you get the smoothest and most stable elliptical trainer on the market.
The Two-Degree Difference
Spirit Fitness elliptical trainers have an integrated two-degree inward tilt to make your workout more comfortable. This exclusive design puts you in a more ergonomically correct position. Two degrees may not sound like much, but this is an example of where the spirit of innovation makes for a better workout experience. This small but critical detail is only one example of what separates the Spirit Fitness elliptical trainers from their competitors.
Built to Last
We have one of the best warranties in the industry because we have been building fitness products for over thirty years. All of that experience gives us the understanding of what happens to fitness products not just after two years or five years, but ten to fifteen to twenty years. We still hear from satisfied customers who have been using their Spirit Fitness products for decades.
We combine the highest quality components with years of engineering experience and then assemble them in our own ISO 9001 factories (International Organization for Standardization. Standard 9001 is a quality management system to help ensure the factory produces quality products).
The Spirit of Innovation
As with any product, a major key is the user interface. Whether it is your cell phone, car, or fitness equipment, you want to quickly be able to use it and get the information that is important to you. We focused on this simple principle in the development of our new consoles.
A quick press of a button and you are off on a walk or a run, or one of the many specialized workouts. Some models even allow you to develop your own programs. Our large, easy-to-read consoles give you constant feedback from calories to distance to time. There are even separate displays for heart rate and muscle activation.
Easy-to-Read, Adjustable ConsolesAll of our home elliptical trainers have a tilting console with ten degrees of adjustment, so that you can get the best viewing angle on our bright blue LCD screen. Our consoles are positioned so you can easily reach them to set up your program and push start. The contact heart rate grips are perfectly positioned on the lower handlebar to keep you in the proper ergonomic position during your workout. Our dual action handlebars have a long padded grip so you can find the most comfortable position.
