The Word on the Street

Here are some of the reviews from Best Fitness E1 users:

– “Great workout that comes with an ease of use. I like that the exercise surface is close to the ground. I can easily use it to walk forwards and backwards, and increase and decrease the resistance levels while exercising.”- Bernard Farell

– “The Best Fitness E1 is compact, which is great if you have a small house, because it requires much less space than other machines”- Melissa Niksic

– “I received my E1 trainer in a well-packaged container which prevented any damage to the components. I was able to assemble it myself within about 2 hours. So far I have been very pleased with the operation of it. The stride is comfortable, not too long and doesn’t put unnecessary stress on the hips. The operation is quiet, allowing me to watch TV on low volume.”- W.J. Stoffey
