BH Fitness S1Xi Elliptical Review
BH Fitness S1Xi Elliptical Rating
Thank you for your submission. We'll have someone call or e-mail you shortly.
The S1Xi is designed with a 13 pound flywheel and weight max of 300 pounds. Users can choose from 24 levels of resistance, and the stride is fixed at 20 inches. On this model, there are several comfort features like EVA padded foot pedals and cushioned multi-grip handlebars.
Coming to the console, users can choose from an impressive 26 built-in workout programs via the 6.5” blue backlit LCD display screen that is also Bluetooth enabled and powered by BH Fitness’ very own iConcept Technology. This means that users can seamlessly connect Apple or Android devices to access all of their favorite apps and programming, but users can also download the free BH Fitness app which offers even more workout programs and advanced fitness tracking options. This console is also equipped for wireless heart rate monitoring, with the wireless receiver included (users can also use the contact grips to track heart rate).

The Bottom Line
The bottom line is that you won’t find too many flashy features on this basic front-drive elliptical trainer by BH Fitness, but you will find a well-made machine that is from a brand known for their long-lasting elliptical trainers and innovative iConcept designed consoles. The price isn’t too bad so it’s also relatively affordable, but there aren’t any adjustable features, making it difficult for multiple people to comfortably enjoy the same machine.
