The above reviewer must have been drunk

Pros:Smooth motion, no dead spots 8 different resistance programs

Cons:slight side to side rocking motion when you get going fast, but still feels stable

The Bottom Line: Fro under $600, you could not find a better machine


OK, I have been using these machines at the gym for months and decided to try the home version. Now I didn't want to spend the cash for a fitness club quality$2000 machine that is meant to be run on 10 hours a day and can solidly hold a 300 lb cow, but I didn't want a cheap feeling piece of soddered together aluminum junk either. I felt that for $600 I should be able to get a quality home version. I looked at a bunch of things, I tried the Nordic track 980 at a store, it felt flimsy and not that smooth then I saw a review of the Eclipse 4000 that sounded good and it was about 6 bills. I saw that the 6000 was $900 and I read the other review on this site of the 6000(the above review)that talked a lot of poo poo about the 6000, which surprised me because the 4000 was rated so high. Anyway I decided to look of the Fitness Quest Company that made them and find out what was the difference. Aparently the only difference is that the 6000 has a better computer with more resistance programs and other cool stuff. The company was also offering an internet direct offer of the 6000 for $300 off at $599, no tax, no shipping charge, right in side my price range, so I got. Shipped to me in 1 week, put together in 20 minutes and hopped on. This thing is great, it is so smooth and quiet. There is no dead spot in the motion. It has 8 different workout modes with differnt resistence courses, a heart rate monitor and big foot pads that are comfotable enough that my wife does a 15 min workout barefoot. I am 5' 8" 175 and when I get going real hard it does rock side to side a bit, but is still stable and does not at any point feel tipsey and keep in mind that I have mine set up on carpet. It is light and is easy to move. All in all, I couldn't imagine a better home machine for the money. Whoever wrote the above review must have been drunk, because this thing is great.
