QUICK REVIEW

Pros The Smooth CE 3.0DS Elliptical Machine was designed to offer a full elliptical experience without commanding a ton of floor space. It allows users a full 21-inch stride, but only measures 50-inches long. This is great news for those who don’t have a lot of room for a home gym, but love the idea of privacy while working out.
Cons As this machine is smaller than some of its sister ellipticals, some features have been sacrificed. One in particular is a lack of pivoting pedals, which is basically standard on many other machines in its price range.
Summary The Smooth CE 3.0DS provides each and every user with a unique two-in-one workout. You can switch from the standard elliptical mode into a stepper form whenever you’d like, bringing challenge and versatility to your exercise routine.
