Pros The Vision X40 elliptical trainer maintains the perfect fusion of high-quality basics and advanced technology that makes your workout time both manageable and effective. When you purchase the X40, you get a choice of three different consoles, which means you have the power to customize even further, empowering your fitness goals with everything from the straightforward basics to the latest in touch screen technology.
Summary The Vision X40 is a traditional elliptical with multifaceted handlebars. Hang on to the hand grips for a classic elliptical experience, or maneuver them in motions to bring more attention and toning to the upper body (especially the arms). The Classic console gets the job done without a lot of bells and whistles – this is the one to choose if you want a no frills experience that will get you fit without all the complications of gadgets and extra features you’ve never dreamed of. If you’re hoping for something more impressive, go for the Elegant or Touch.

Detailed Overview

The Vision X40 has truly revolutionized the way we experience elliptical fitness at home, thanks to its three console variations and sturdy construction. The basic model displays time, distance, calories burned and much more. Five workout programs are included, and contact grips in the handlebars work to monitor your heart rate. This version of the X40 is perfect for novice gym bees.

For those craving a bit more of a challenge or exciting workout time, check out the Elegant. With a full color screen display and thirteen workout programs built-in, it’s already far ahead of the Classic’s capabilities.

Finally, the Touch takes after its name and offers a touch screen and top-notch features including virtual interactive workouts. The Touch is also compatible with your iPhone or iPod, featuring a Nike workout track feature that will really get your heart pumping.

Our Least Favorite Features

A few downsides to the Vision X40 elliptical machine:

  • It’s expensive. This is not a budget elliptical by any means.
  • Without an adjustable stride length, petite users may struggle

The Bottom Line

With its great console selection and ability to provide either a full body toning or focus on isolated areas, the Vision X40 is a well-built and sophisticated machine. Even the Classic, the basic of the three, is more than able to help you meet your fitness goals. For those looking to splurge, the Touch truly is amazing with its interactive features and touch screen for easy controls during your workout.

The footpads on this elliptical are close together, which works to simulate a truly natural running or walking pace. With the most natural feel available, the 20 inch stride length can be overwhelming to some, but still works well for the strong majority of users. For more advanced consoles, a chest strap is included for monitoring heart rate, which is a much welcomed perk due to the reputation handle grip sensors have for being inaccurate.

When you’re ready to engage with a high-quality elliptical machine that will get you serious about physical fitness, the Vision X40 is the model you’ve been looking for.
