Elliptical Misses: Why the ECT 3000 Needs to Improve

  • No preset programs – This elliptical can only be used in manual mode. Just about every other elliptical trainer is loaded with preset workouts.
  • Light resistance – This elliptical has perhaps the lightest flywheel on the market. Weighing just 11 pounds, the flywheel provides little resistance and can’t support a very smooth ride for people weighing much more than 100 pounds.
  • Poor warranty – This unit is sold with just two years of protection on the frame and a year of protection on parts.

Overall Rating for the MultiSports Elliptix 3000 Elliptical Trainer

The ECT 3000 is a very basic elliptical trainer. Its light resistance and lack of programs mean that it provides very little challenge or guidance. While it’s not recommended as a primary trainer, it could be useful as part of a more comprehensive cardiovascular training program. It’s a workout machine for rainy days.

For better budget ellipticals, see competitors such as Horizon, Spirit, and Schwinn. They offer better ergonomics, longer warranties, and more features than does MultiSports Fitness.
