Overall Rating


Pros The Vision S70 is a high-end trainer that includes customizable stride length, ergonomic foot positioning and an adjustable incline. Combine this with the durable welded steel frame and the suspension design known to provide the smoothest ride an elliptical has ever been capable of, and you’ve pretty much summed up the S70.
Cons The Vision S70 is expensive – this is not a fly-by-night sort of purchase. It is also very heavy – the frame itself is 352 pounds – so wherever you park it in your home, you’ll likely want to ensure it can stay there.
Summary The Vision S70 is a great choice for taller users thanks to its 21”-23” adjustable stride length. It also has varied programming with 20 different options – all contain multiple resistance levels for the ultimate challenge. Since the machine is so advanced, it is actually simpler for novice users than other more archaic ellipticals. Vision has truly dedicated the time toward making this a user-friendly console that can be mastered quickly without sacrificing cutting-edge features.

Our Least Favorite Features

A few downsides to the Vision S70 elliptical machine:

  • This is a high-end machine, and it comes with a high-end price. If you can afford it, then you will have a fantastic experience. But, unfortunately, it does cost thousands of dollars.
  • The stride could potentially be too long for petite users. If your family members vary greatly in height, Vision’s X70 might be a better option with its shorter fixed stride length.

The Bottom Line

Vision has really created a winner with this suspension elliptical machine that is incredibly durable and known for standing the test of time. As it was originally intended to be a commercial fitness unit, bringing it into the home provides you automatically with the durability you crave. Multiple family members can use the Vision S70 without having to worry about wear and tear. And, if for whatever reason this elliptical fails, it falls under warranty for quite a long time.

With 20 different workout programs to choose from, you can stick to a favorite pick or experience a wide range of options that keep fitness exciting. These include interval training, fat burning, target heart rate, weight loss, glute burning, mountain hiking, stair climbing and more. Best of all, you can design your own programs (up to 5).

For those looking for a serious elliptical machine and are willing to make the financial investment, the Vision S70 truly is incredible. This likeable fitness companion will yield positive results you can both see and feel.
