The NordicTrack E5 VI Elliptical Trainer 23955 is a solid workout machine that comes equipped with sixteen preset workout programs – eight timed training workouts and eight weight-loss workouts. Other features include an adjustable stride length between 13-18 inches, 12 levels of resistance, 300-lb. weight capacity and a lifetime frame warranty.

Nice extras include oversized pedals, a CoolAire™ fan, backlit display and heart monitor. It’s iPod-compatible and has iFit memory card access, as well. With dimensions of 73.8” x 24.6”x 64.2”, it’s a good-sized piece of equipment, but the SpaceSaver® Design allows it to fold up for easier transport and storage. Priced at around $600, it’s not prohibitively expensive.

Most users find it easy to use and especially like the adjustability of the stride length, although there can be a slight wobble and some instability at higher speeds. Some find that the batteries are depleted rather quickly and recommend buying the optional power adapter.
