We were looking for a long time for a cross trainer that will be strong, sturdy, rear flywheel, compact and with a long stride. After much research on the internet, I came across JTX Fitness, and after reading all the excellent reviews from other users we have decided to order the Smart stride 23. Delivery was super fast, when the box arrived it was big and heavy and when I opened the box I got cold feet, I thought I won't be able to put it together, there were many parts and it looked complicated, but slowly and gradually I have managed to put it together without complications or problems. By building this cross trainer you get to know that it is made of strong materials. We have been using it for the last three weeks and we are very happy with our choice. The machine is sturdy, stable, well made, not even a small squeak and I am 5ft9" weighing 103 kilos. a few minor annoying things:
a) The plastic pedal plate is not rimmed all around, sometimes during exercise our feet tend to slide outwards and without a rim I have to keep moving my feet back inwards.
b) The photos in the instruction manual could be a lot sharper and clearer.
c) The box included a "MOVE FIT" Wireless heart rate system as an extra but there is nowhere to fit the wireless receiver on the machine.
Don't think twice ,this is the machine you have been looking for.... compact, strong ,build quality, with variable stride size......well done JTX Fitness!!! (I just hope your after sales is good as your machine....)
