Pros The Vision S60 is a suspension elliptical with a serious agenda. This machine will get you fit via a super smooth feel and ultimate comfort. It is also self-powered, so you will be the driving force behind generating the console and pace of your workout.
Cons Since the Vision S60 is also designed to be a commercial fitness elliptical, it tends to not be as affordable as other machines out there. The stride length is also not adjustable, and is set at 21 inches. This can be a bit too long for many folks.
Summary When you’re looking for a truly high-performing machine that keeps things intense, the Vision S60 is a worthwhile choice. You will benefit from a multitude of programs that outrate pretty much anything else out there, as well as experience a truly durable elliptical that will run with you for the long haul.

Our Least Favorite Features

A few downsides to the Vision S60 elliptical machine:

  • Like other commercial-grade Vision elliptical machines, it’s a bit expensive. It’s a worthy investment, but you will need to be prepared to spend thousands.
  • The stride is not adjustable and may be too long for more petite users.

The Bottom Line

With a fantastic warranty and durable construction that will deliver results no matter how hard you push it, the Vision S60 is a favorite elliptical machine of both home fitness users and commercial gym owners. The wireless heart rate monitor ensures you get a more accurate reading, navigating you toward program options that will be most effective toward your individual goals.

Running solely on user-generated power, the Vision S60 won’t ramp up your electricity bills – only your motivation. The harder you work to power this machine, the more encouraging results you will see on the console. You can also choose from 25 total workout programs. Some of the preset ones include a focus on fat burning, weight loss, trail 10k-20k and even a fitness test. The machine also reserves 5 of the 25 for user-designed workout programs. Keep things interesting and personal by designing your own fitness routine to use whenever you like.

Thanks to its maximum weight capacity of 400 lb and its durable, commercial-grade steel frame, the Vision S60 is acceptable for users of all experience levels. Start out slow and then enjoy the continuous challenge of a machine that allows you to build up to your own personal fitness.

We rate the console at 2 stars only because with a machine that costs this much, it should really have some sort of full color screen – perhaps even a touch screen. However, green living folks will appreciate the fact it doesn’t due to its self-powered reliance.

When you’re ready to get in the best shape of your life, the Vision S60 is a truly amazing elliptical machine that will push you toward the best shape of your life.
