My wife and I thought we knew everything regarding home elliptical trainers…. We were wrong! After doing some research online, I found the Xterra Fitness company. I was intrigued and interested in this 2 degree tilt on the pedals of this machine. It appears it’s a push movement on the pedals and not just a linear ( back and forth ) motion on all elliptical trainers. It feels great! The machine functions as well as any club machine we tested. Great price $999 compares to those selling for over $3K.
