  • Smooth operator...smooooooooth operator...

    Jul 19, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: SILENT, heavy duty and stable, pre-set programs, not a space hog
    Cons: The assembly and computer instructions could have been clearer

    Summary: I purchased the Smooth CE Eliptical Trainer when my husband and I decided that we wanted something low impact for a cardio workout at home. We first bought the Bowflex Treadclimber TC3000 and ended up sending it back because it seemed cheaply built and ... read more

    Jul 18, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Built to last; sturdy and stable.
    Cons: Questionable accuracy of calorie and mileage counters.

    Summary: In my lifetime, I've spent well over 1,000 hours on commercial quality elliptical machines(mostly Precors and Life Fitness)at the local health club. When I decided to purchase an elliptical for our ever-growing home gym, I did some extensive research. ... read more

    Apr 17, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Silent Smooth in operation. Well built. Excellent customer service.
    Cons: Actual stride length only 16".

    Summary: Approximately one month ago I ordered CE 3.2. Two days later it was delivered to the door. Assembling the device was not difficult at all, approx 1.5 – 2 hrs all by myself. Before ordering it I was not sure what will suit me better CE2.1 or 3.2. ... read more

    Mar 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great construction, smooth operation,free shipping, excellent support (so far)
    Cons: Takes up big space (worthwhile though) Manual is slightly cryptic.

    Summary: This product was received yesterday (3/5/07) and we assembled it in about an hour with no major errors. As usual, reading and understanding the assembly instructions are always the most critical aspect of assembling something with more than 2 parts. We ... read more

  • Smooth Fitness CE 2.1 Elliptical

    Mar 6, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Affordable, solid, great engineering, smooth, quiet, attractive.
    Cons: Stride could be short for taller people. Some screws for the cosmetic parts didn't fit.

    Summary: I wanted to write this review because all the drastically varying ones on this site are from years ago (though I see there's a new 2007 one now!), and it confused me in my decision to buy one. Well, I did buy one, and I have owned the CE 2.1 for 3 ... read more

    Feb 14, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy,Quiet, Stable Smooth and built to last. On time delivery, great customer service.
    Cons: My 2 daughters used to go to the gym now they use my elliptical

    Summary: Sturdy, Stable, Smooth and Quiet are under statements. This machine is built better than anything on the market at any price. I've tried them all, starting with the department stores, the larger Sporting Good chains and finally our local Fitness ... read more

  • So far, so good (except delivery)

    Oct 26, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Well-built, easy to use, quiet. Good price.
    Cons: Delivery policy stinks; not sure heart rate monitor works.

    Summary: We've had the 3.2 for a week and so far I am very happy with it. It was easy for my husband to assemble - boys with toys - it kept him happily occupied for a couple of hours. The machine is solid and works quite well. So far, it is VERY quiet. I had ... read more

  • 50 -something lost inches in less than 3 months

    Oct 24, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Effortless inch-eraser, quiet, quick, efficient; moves rather well on its wheels; heavy-duty; powerful.
    Cons: Footprint is large (but airy); cannot be relocated easily due to size and weight.

    Summary: I had the typical weight gain associated with the middle-aging process as well as another 10 pounds gained while taking a professional baking course. It took over three years to put on about 20 pounds and I was looking for a way to get rid of it quickly ... read more

  • Smooth CE Elliptical

    Sep 6, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: I'm hoping for 10 year plus durability.
    Cons: Expensive, short stride length, heavy, big, no book rack, pulse monitor incorrect

    Summary: I've had it about a month, but have only used it 3 or 4 hours. It's quiet now, except for some mild noises once in a while. Sometimes it makes a little tick every revolution which I associate with a developing problem with the connection from the ... read more

  • Quality worth the price

    Mar 2, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: smooth just like its name, quiet, well built and designed, easy to use and assemble
    Cons: Short stride--only 16" would take some getting used to if used ellipticals in gym

    Summary: I purchased my Smooth Elliptical CE 3.2 after returning two Nordictrack CX 1055 ellipticals which never functioned properly from day one. I read many reviews recommending the Smooth ellipticals so decided to give them a try. I am amazed at how quiet and ... read more

  • Not so smooth

    Sep 26, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Heavy construction and quiet
    Cons: Bolts snapped after 6 wks. Wireless heart monitor did not work. Support is lousy.

    Summary: I've purchased the Smooth CE about 2 months ago. I thought it was very well built. It's a very heavy piece of equipment and quiet. I noticed that the wireless heart monitor worked sporadically at best and called the support number, left a message. My ... read more

  • Stay Away - Buy Something Else! Smooth CE is a Ripoff

    Aug 29, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Footprint: small. Price: pretty good. Flywheel gives a very smooth feel when working out.
    Cons: Frame design is horrible!!! Unbearable to use unless maintenance is constantly done.

    Summary: When I bought the Smooth Fitness CE elliptical trainer approximately 3 years ago, there were about 3 reviews here on epinions.com. All of them praised the machine, and touted its "Porsche" engineering, among other things. While the machine was ... read more

  • First Impression

    Mar 2, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good price, High quality construction, nice features.
    Cons: User manual could be better.

    Summary: I decided on this Elliptical Trainer at least partially on the reputation of company that sells it. I bought a Smooth 5.5 treadmill 5 years ago and between my wife and I we've put thousands of miles on it and are well pleased with it, and the service we ... read more

  • Caveat Emptor

    Jan 24, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Not built for a regular exercise regime.

    Summary: We bought one of these machines about 2 years ago. The shaft holding the pedal to the flywheel, continually breaks off. This requires ordering a new wheel. Between the time it takes to order the new wheel, and, the time for the service work, we usually ... read more

    Sep 23, 2004 by

    Pros: electronic programs
    Cons: Quality, structure, dependability. What else is imortant?

    Summary: I too used it for about 2-3 months and experienced squeeking and the traditional loosening of the bolts, and low and behold on my machine as well, the bolts were c hopped in half. So i went to home depot myself to replace it. Besides the crappy way ... read more

  • There IS a construction flaw--but not an insurmountable one! Overall, it's great.

    Feb 19, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy, versatile, smooth, quiet (once treated right), easy assembly, non-impact, fun
    Cons: clip heartrate monitor doesn't work, have to fix the squeak, heavy when unpacking

    Summary: I read many of the reviews on this site before I purchased the Smooth CE, so I feel that I went in with my eyes open--you should, too. I love this machine for it's sturdiness, it's smoothness, its versatility (adjustable workouts, foot placement, ... read more

  • So far so good

    Nov 10, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good price, solid construction, good electronics
    Cons: Instructions on setting up the computer are hard to understand and inadequate in their description

    Summary: I bought the Kettler CTR1 from efitnessdirect.com. As others have pointed out, Kettler is the manufacturer of the Smooth CE, so it's the same machine. I paid $1275 including freight for mine including the wireless heart monitor, which they threw in for ... read more

    Oct 18, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good build quality. Relatively small elliptical.
    Cons: Not commercial product quality, but close.

    Summary: I am writing this review in hopes that someone looking for an ellipitical, can try and make sense of all these reviews on the Smooth CE. First off, I do not have a Smooth CE, but a Kettler Cosmos, but they are the same thing. Secondly, a lot of the ... read more

    Jun 16, 2003 by

    Pros: Quiet, compact, easy to use, great motion, plenty of resistance
    Cons: For shorter women, feet are *slightly* far apart--takes some getting used to.

    Summary: We've had our CE about three weeks. I wanted to wait before writing. So far, we are very pleased and feel confident that this is the best value out there. Others on this list have eloquently spoken about how this machine compares to other, ... read more
