Elliptical Hits: Great Features of the SportsArt E822 Elliptical Trainer

  • Auto-cushion pedals This model’s patented MyFlex™ pedal cushioning system detects user weight and automatically adjusts to provide optimal support.
  • Heavy frame – This solid steel machine weighs 270 pounds and has a user weight capacity of 400 pounds.
  • Varied workout options – Programs include: Interval, Random, Glute (x3), Manual/Track, Zone Trainer™, Cardio, and Weight Loss.
  • Heart rate monitor – A wireless heart rate monitor is included.
  • Good warranties – Two warranty plans are available. Residential customers get a lifetime warranty on the frame, ten years on mechanical parts, and five years on electronic parts. For commercial customers, the parts warranties are reduced to two years.
  • Green energy – The E822 harnesses power from the user’s workout and a backup console battery.

Elliptical Misses: Why SportsArt Isn’t for Everyone

  • Average to wider pedal spacing — One possible drawback for users with sensitive hips is the pedal spacing, which isn’t optimized for long workouts.
  • Higher step-on – The pedals are placed 13 inches from the floor, which could be uncomfortable for some older people and those with knee trouble.

Overall Rating for the SportsArt Elliptical E822

The E822 is very similar to the E821. The E821 has additional programs and is electronically adjustable, but the E822 has a longer warranty, a longer stride range, and won’t add to electricity bills. Both ellipticals are recommended. The top-of-the-line unit, the E830, is essentially the same machine but has additional programs and an even longer stride range.
