QUICK REVIEW

Pros The price is the biggest “pro” for this model, offered for under $400. Gold’s Gym is a well-known brand in the gym circuit, but not so much in fitness equipment, so it does carry a well-known name in fitness too. Beyond the price, we do like that this model features an adjustable pedal, and that the console has a built-in audio system with speakers.
Cons While the price is a “pro” for this model, this also means that you compromise some features and durability since the price is so low. The “cons” for this model include lack of adjustable features and a shorter, fixed stride of 18 inches. The warranty is also pretty shabby, covering only 5 years on the frame and a short 90-day warranty on parts and labor. With a warranty like this, it’s evident that this piece of equipment isn’t really meant to last you years and years.
Summary You can’t be the price of the Stride Trainer 410, but you do miss out on some features of course by saving some extra cash. We do like that this trainer has adjustable pedals with advanced cushioning, but that’s the only adjustable feature you will find on this model. We also like that the console features an iPod compatible music port with two speakers, and iFit compatibility. But, the warranty is less than impressive, and for, that’s a deal breaker since if the company doesn’t stand behind their own piece of equipment, that’s a red flag.

Gold’s Gym Stride Trainer 410 Elliptical Detailed Overview

An affordable elliptical trainer, this top model in the series of rear drive stride trainers by Gold’s Gym offers a reliable workout experience with access to advanced workout technology like iFit.

The Stride Trainer 410, which is priced under $500 (on sale from $599), is the top model in the Gold’s Gym line of rear-drive elliptical stride trainers. This model has a weight capacity of 250 pounds and a stride length of 18 inches; the flywheel weight is not disclosed via their website, but the company does say this model features an “Inertia Enhanced Flywheel.”

Users have 12 levels of digital resistance to choose from, which features automatic resistance control. The pedals are cushioned with SoftTrac™ cushioning and feature an adjustable design with three settings.

The console is designed with a 5×7 workout matrix display and blue-tinted LCD display that is equipped with iFit technology and offers 12 workout programs.

The console area also features the basics like a water bottle holder and built-in adjustable fan. If you want to also track your heart rate, there are built-in dual-grip EKG heart rate monitor grips on the stationary handlebars.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line here is that you get what you pay for. This is an inexpensive model, so it lacks in many areas. However; if you are looking for a basic piece of equipment to get in some cardio here and there, the Stride Trainer 410 may be a perfect fit for you. The console is really not too bad either, though it lacks any flashy features or entertainment options, but the iFit compatibility makes it easy to mix up workouts.
