XS Sports Luna Pro 2-in1 Elliptical Cross Trainer Exercise Bike-Fitness Cardio Weightloss Workout Machine-With Seat + Pulse Heart Rate Sensors

XS Sport's Luna Pro Cross Trainer is one of the most affordable yet fashionable cross trainers we've tested before- not only did we absolutely love how funky it looked, the quality and general value of the product was remarkable! Cross trainers (elliptical machines) are one of the best methods of incorporating full body workouts in your regime. 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. Read on to find out about our rating for this Elliptical machine. For a quick read on the item specifications and overall comments, jump to 1.1 and 3.

Features

  • Two-In-One! The XS Sports Pro Fitness Elliptical Cross Trainer was a real bag! As advertised, we tried out the claim of it being able to function as both a cross trainer and exercise bike. We find that it does a slightly better job as a cross trainer purely because you don't use the comfort facilities as much when using this machine as an exercise bike. You're usually a lot more active in the workout if your cycling, your bottom slightly raised from he seat, so all these ergonomic features aren't as helpful when using it as an exercise bike. That said, this makes the purchase great value for money, as you now don't need to worry about buying another machine for cycling.
  • Enhanced Stability: The flywheel is front mounted, meaning you have extra stability during your workout sessions. The maximum user weight is also large, so all users can enjoy a safe and comfortable experience with this cross trainer.
  • Adjustable Resistance: You can alternate between high and low intensity workouts here, with the adjustable resistance feature of this machine. We tries out the maximum resistance, boy was that tough, it really helps you maximise your muscle training, but we suggest starting from low resistance levels and work your way up the ladder.
  • Multi Function LCD Display: You can get handy, informative, live performance feedback during and post workout. The information shown onscreen includes your pulse (keep your hands on the sensors at all times for optimal accuracy!), time (elapsed and remaining), average speed and current speed, distance (covered and remaining), Calorie count & Scan Mode.
  • Versatile Workouts: This cross trainer can pretty much do it all- you can work out your leg muscles, hips (hip flexors too), buttocks, arms (great for burning flabby arms) as well as defining your shoulders. The aim of this cross trainer, achieved, is to simulate natural walking motion, which is something we can vouch for. It felt very smooth and safe to use, so the build quality is remarkable. 
  • Comfortable Use: With this cross trainer, there are generously wide (like extra wide) platform pedals for you to easily rest your feet on. The seat was also large and comfortable, don't let your booty gains from putting you off narrow, tough seats! In addition, the seat is padded as well as adjustable, for maximum support. The handlebars can also be pushed up and down too, so you can modify your workout to suit you best. 
  • Easy to Move Around the House: You can easily wheel this machine around if you decide to rearrange the layout of your at-home gym.
  • Flexibility to Workouts: Moving Stride Bars are available for optimal upper body workouts are fitted in this machine, for maximum flexibility in workouts.
  • Bidirectional Movement: This cross trainer features forward and backward elliptical workouts, which is something we haven't seen in many other trainers! The bidirectional functionality allows you to target different areas of your body, for quad and hamstring training and advanced as well as sweaty, effective cardio.
  • Reversible Motion: Forward pedalling motion helps you train your front thigh muscles (quadriceps), while backwards pedalling motion works and stretches your back-thighs (hamstrings). We recommend you take full advantage of this feature, switch up your workouts! There's a heap of benefits you can get from this one machine all while ensuring you aren't left fatigued, which we absolutely love. The value for money is top notch.
  • Durable: The design of this cross trainer features a solid steel frame and chip resistant paint, so your purchase will remain intact and beautiful for as long as possible. Solid steel frame and chip resistant paint. There's handy front wheels too, for easy and correct transport around your home.

Our Top Points

We tested this trainer out well and hard, collating a list of the best/top things we have to say about this product. We've listed, below, the main strength points of this trainer:

  • Great Value for Money: Yes, this is the main winning point of this purchase! You get so many different features, a cross trainer and exercise bike, bidirectional movement, it's worth every penny.
  • Easy Assembly: The assembly for this cross trainer is fairly simple- there's an easy-to-follow manual, the only downside is that there lots of small parts which can get slightly confusing.
  • Quiet Enough for Home environments: It isn't the most silent cross trainer we've reviewed, but it's quiet enough for home environments and perfect for public, professional gyms.

Downsides

One thing we could pick up on is the sturdiness of the cross trainer. Yes, the materials are designed to be durable, but upon touch, the quality is quite cheap compared to other cross trainers. This does however result in the products' affordability, but the value for money definitely makes up for the quality of materials. The quality is the only thing we would pick up on about this cross trainer, so if you are deciding to make a purchase for your gym, we suggest looking into longer term investments. This is a better product choice for home-gyms.

The Final Verdict

We asked a few of our team members to test this cross trainer out- read on to hear about Tarek's (40), Hana's (17) and Kyle's (31) reviews on the XS Sports Luna Pro 2-in-1 Elliptical Cross Trainer:

Tarek: "I love how comfortable the seat is, and the overall feel of the cross trainer is quite comfortable I'd say. The quality of this material isn't as good as my regular gym equipment, but I'd say it's a nice purchase for my home. It does the job."

Hana: "The affordability and value of this machine is actually quite commendable, it's definitely something I would buy in the future (on instalments!)...haha, but I really like this actually. It's comfy to put my bottom on and I get a nice sweaty workout out of this. This is definitely something I'd buy for my home, but for now I gotta stick to gym memberships."

Kyle: "I had bought a cross trainer for my home about 8 years ago, and this would be a fine replacement for it. I don't like public gyms very much, but the quality you find there is unmatched. This isn't up to par in terms of gym quality, but for the home it is an excellent trainer and I would definitely incorporate it into my fitness regime. I love the comfy padded seat!"

Starting my working career as a personal trainer, I quickly became familiar with equipment around the gym. While each piece of kit has its place in your overall body fitness; I find the cross trainer to be the most effective while mitigating the most amount of risks. That is why I created CrossTrainerHome.co.uk to help others in their home fitness journey.
