The Sunny Health & Fitness Magnetic elliptical is one of the most affordable elliptical trainers available and great for starting a cardiovascular workout from the comfort of your home. Here is what some of the users had to say about the Sunny Magnetic Elliptical SF-E905.
- After the assembly using it is very simple and it does what an elliptical should do. I find that the right handle seems to move a little so I will have to see if I can tighten it a little more. The display went dead in just a few days but after putting some new non-generic batteries it seems to be working okay. Ben T.
- “I personally think it was a great choice to buy this elliptical because it can do just as much as the thousand dollar ones and you don’t need a gym membership.” – Alex G.
- “It is sturdy and does not take up much space.” – Anne
- It is easy to move around the house and doesn’t take up a lot of space. When you are on it it doesn’t move around like I read in reviews of other ellipticals. Overall, I am happy with it. Sam B.
- “Excellent elliptical, would buy again. It is very sturdy, well made, and very easy to put together. Overall the workout was what I needed from my busy schedule and with the ease of having it in my own home was perfect.” – Joseph T.
