e8.5 Elliptical


The straight-forward design of the e8.5 Freemotion elliptical makes it no-impact cardio option for people of all fitness levels. A lowered step entry makes it ideal for those working back from injury. The one-piece center rail supports the machine and is easy to clean; pre-installed programs keep workouts exciting. The organic stride motion is more narrow and natural than on other ellipticals, making it easier on the knees, joints and back. (Not available in North America.)
