After four months of being allowed limited activity, one month on bed rest, a baby, and a six week recovery, it is an understatement to say that I am out of shape. Like most of America, with the new year brought goals to get fit, lose weight, and be healthy. I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to try out Hayneedle's Body Champ BRM3600 Cardio Dual Trainer to put my goals (and body) to action.
This machine isn't like other ellipticals, it is an elliptical and exercise bike in one. It is fairly compact and very sturdy. I have been using it when I can and it definitely offers a great work out. I can feel a difference in my body every single time I use it. It rides very smoothly and even silently, which I love in order to get some exercise in while my children are sleeping.The grips on the petals are perfect for me. I am super clumsy so these are great to keep your feet positioned in place while exercising.
You think you have mastered the elliptical? Move up the tension control for a more intense work out. I'm still on the lowest tension. I'm a work in progress.
The LCD screen is my favorite. It helps me keep track of the time I have spent on the machine, my speed, distance, pulse rate, and best of all...calories burned.
I like to use the inner handles while I'm using the machine as an exercise bike. This is also where you hold while your pulse rate is being calculated.
The bike seat can be moved horizontally and vertically by easily turning the knob and pulling it while moving the seat to your correct height. This is great for my husband and I as he is much taller than me. The bike seat itself is really comfortable and nicely padded.
You can purchase your own Body Champ BRM3600 Cardio Dual Trainer for $269.98.
