BH Fitness Spyro Program Elliptical Trainer Review

We have not yet had the opportunity to properly review the BH Fitness Spyro Program Elliptical Trainer, but hope to be able to very soon.

The BH Fitness Spyro Program elliptical trainer is no doubt a beauty – and its looks are not skin deep either!

We’ve found a machine with stylish looks can make a difference. If you’re a bit tired and unmotivated to do your daily session just one look at this machine will change your mind.

It comes with 14 pre-set programmes including a heart rate controlled session that will automatically vary the resistance levels to keep you in the optimum fat-burning zone. It can do this by monitoring your pulse rate. So for instance if it starts to drop below a certain work rate it will ramp up the resistance and ask you to keep to a certain speed.

Yes it does sound a bit like a strict school teacher but it really will help to shift those pounds and tone up your muscles.

In addition to the heart rate programme, there are others to help build stamina, tone-up, work the upper or lower body or improve strength. It also has the capacity for you to add your own.

You can measure your heart rate via the grips on the safety handles – the static handles in the middle – but not from the handlebars you use whilst training. The static handles are a useful addition because when you start to get tired you can rest your upper body whilst still working the legs and back.

Our score : 8.0 ( out of 10 ) A well-designed machine that will go a long way to help you achieve your fitness goals.

Review Summary - In Brief

We found it fairly easy to move around although the adjustable feet did get in the way sometimes, it would have been easy if it came with wheels.

BH Fitness Spyro Program Elliptical Trainer - Console / Display Unit

The LCD display is clear and easy to read. It displays a combination of time of the sessions, distance covered, your speed, rpm, pulse rate and the number of calories used - based on your height and weight. From our experience of working with many clients knowing this sort of information can help when you're getting tired. To see how many calories you've burnt and how far you've gone can inspire you to keep going to the end of your programme. The buttons were easy enough to operate allowing you to change resistance levels with one touch for a manual programme or to overide a pre-set. Ease of use on the console is important on an elliptical trainer because you can lose your momentum if you've got one hand off the handles for long.
