Our Favorite Features

Some of our favorite parts of the CE 3.0XT:

  • Moving handlebars provide an effective workout for the upper body as well as the legs.
  • Blue backlit display shows various workout session specs including distance, time, speed and pulse rate.

Our Least Favorite Features

 A few downsides to the CE 3.0XT:

  • This is a fairly basic machine compared to other ellipticals available. With full color screens and a wider variety of programs available on units for a comparable price, the CE 3.0XT doesn’t really keep up economically.
  • A lot of details are lacking, at least via advertised descriptions. Are there cooling fans? MP3 charger? The manufacturer isn’t telling.
