We've tested this Reebok GX40 Cross Trainer- elliptical machines are one of the key assets of a gym, or any fitness regime, as you are incorporating full body workouts into your lifestyle. Some products have certain design features (for example, you may have fixed or moving handlebars) to help you achieve different goals: fixed to help you work your core, and moving to help you sweat, burning fat off every part of your body. When making a purchase, some of the most important factors to consider are the ease and smoothness of use ( to put less pressure on your joints), clunkiness (should be as silent as possible) and compact, depending on where you intend to keep it.

We did some rigorous testing of this cross trainer with our team members, and collated a quick list of the best things we have to say about this product. We've listed, below, the main strength points of this trainer:
One thing we would pick up on this particular machine is that, in comparison to other elliptical machines within its price range, this one doesn't have as many preset workouts as the rest. There are only four fitness programs built into the console, while many other elliptical machines we've tried have about 20, 30 even! Another point we could mention is that the buttons are quite small on the display- attractive yes, but this can be a little inconvenient during the heat of your sweaty, intense workout. This cross trainer is also on the heavier side, making it a pain to move around the house. Not great if you like to change your home arrangement a lot.
We asked a few of our team members to test this cross trainer out- read on to hear about Tarek's (40), Julie's (24) and Kyle's (31) reviews on the Reebok GX40 Cross Trainer:
Tarek: " I really love the popping yellow on this machine, yeah, I'd love to have one of these in my home. The use is really smooth too, I don't feel any strain on my bones which is something I usually have an issue with. This is definitely something I would buy, the price is really good too- definitely good value for money. I'm surprised actually, Reebok is mainly known for sports apparel isn't it? I didn't expect their training machines to be this good, I mean it's exactly like something you would find in a high-end gym. Seriously...yeah definitely, It is a win for me. For sure."
Julie: " Gym is a part of my every day life, so I know how to tell between a good quality machine and a cheap knockoff. This one is surprisingly good, especially since Reebok aren't specialists in training machines! I'd likely consider buying this if I ever tried to build my own home gym, but for now I'll stick to public gyms- I like the buzz!"
Kyle: "Wow, that was a pretty nice ride haha. I like that a lot actually, the colour is stunning. Definitely something that would push me to buy this machine over any other in the same price range. I didn't expect a Reebok machine to be of such great quality, but yes I am pleasantly surprised. It is a price I would be happy to spend for my home gym and I wouldn't be unhappy with the purchase either. Winner, absolute winner."
