Reebok Cross Trainer
About this deal
It’s a mains powered unit so you will need an electrical output somewhere close to where you intend to place you ZR9. First thoughts and build quality Slipping pedals. Belt tension or bearing issues are the common cause for slipping pedals. The belt’s tension needs to be increased or the drive assembly may need to be replaced if the slipping is bearing-related.
There is nothing particularly flashy about the features of the Reebok cross trainer but it does the basics well and it is its ability to provide progression, personalisation and general ease of use for a wide range of consumers that makes it so highly recommendable. The GX50 has it all, including endurance, interval, and heart rate routines. The heart rate zone programs are sure to pique the interest of you hard-working, calorie-burning warriors. Hand Pulse SensorsThere are no less than 12 pre-set workout programmes to choose from, and of course you can also control your workout manually should you so wish with everything controlled by the simplified centre console. There are 7 clearly labelled buttons beneath the 5.75″ LCD screen which allow you to control the workout as well as allowing you to go into recovery mode at the touch of a button. The control panel is super simple to use and although the LCD display may not win any design awards, it displays all the key information you need and is well positioned. Expect to find data such as calories burned, speed, distance, time, watts and RPM. The LCD will also show your heart rate when using the built-in pulse rate monitors. The Reebok ZR8 Cross Trainer is an affordable model that is about as good as it gets at its price point. It is easy to use, provides a fluid workout, and is comfortable in all the right places. The added peace of mind of a two-year warranty will help those who are sitting on the fence to make the plunge.
Once again, I’m in awe of how well-designed this cross-trainer is. Yes, some people may find the display a bit bulky, but it’s as near to gym-quality as you can get. And that’s a major benefit.
Detailed Review of the Reebok ZR8 Cross Trainer
Reebok is a world-class brand, and its customer service is excellent. They will either send the appropriate components if the problem is minor, so you can fix it yourself, or send an engineer if the problem is major. You’ll want to read through your unit’s instruction manual for recommendations or follow your own best judgement. For the price that I paid for the Jet 100s cross trainer on special offer I was more than happy. It’s a close call between a Reebok ZR and the JET 100, I still favour the Reebok ZR range while my partner found the JET 100s to be the overall better experience.
No. During the exercise your feet stay on the pedals and you make smooth movements. This means no force is applied to the knees, as is the case with for example running. The Reebok GX50 Cross Trainer provides everything you need for a superb cardiovascular workout that benefits both your upper and lower body without putting strain on your joints. Some people complained of squeaks. It seems that tightening the bolts after a couple of weeks; use is a good solution for this. Some people also mentioned WD40!Like with other ZR models they are of a very high quality and there are no exposed parts, instead opting for the flywheel and frame to be completely enclosed in the base. Some assembly is required (fitness equipment very rarely ships complete). Some people complained that this was difficult, though others found it simple. If you are unsure, then you can always enlist some help! Programmable Console
