We all face the same dilemma. Those of us who want to stay on top of our physical health and fitness do anyway. We can spend the money on a gym membership and get ourselves down there to enjoy the benefits of working out on high quality, commercial-level machinery. However, the time involved in taking a trip to the local gym in our busy daily schedule can be a bit much.

Sole Fitness E98 Elliptical Analysis

Sure, you could head out for a run before work or go for a cycle at the weekend, but if you live in an area with inclement weather, this is not ideal. Even if the weather is fine most of the year, there will be periods where you are stuck inside or have to brave less than optimum conditions for your workout. The next best solution then is investing in an at home exercise machine. However, these can be notoriously ineffective, badly built and cost a small fortune. Not, though, if you choose a Sole Fitness model like the E98 elliptical trainer. Why are we so confident about this?


Sole Fitness have a reputation for keeping the prices down on their machines, without losing their efficiency and high-performance level. They have made a reputation for themselves doing this and with the E98, these core brand qualities really shine through. It is a commercial-quality elliptical trainer that has been designed with homeowners like you in mind.

Although the company are not known for making the most technologically advanced machines or the trainers kitted out with the most intricate and immersive electronics, if that doesn’t bother you, look at the features you do get the benefit of. All Sole Fitness machines are made with heavy-duty steel to provide a truly robust investment, they operate very quietly and offer enough of the right features to ensure your workouts are never boring or too repetitive. Let’s highlight these in a little more detail.

Lightweight, Yet Tough and Durable

The Sole Fitness E98 elliptical is categorized as a light commercial machine and within the market that these trainers are available, customers like yourself are looking for models that will withstand regular use, possibly by numerous users of different weights and sizes. Is the equipment you are looking to buy going to be used by a number of different people in your family or household? This Sole Fitness model will be ideal if that is the case.

It has been designed and built using high quality and tough 38-mm steel throughout which is capable of supporting a maximum capacity of 400lbs, despite it only weighing in at around the 249 lb mark.

Versatile Workouts Thanks to Various Adjustable Settings

Although there is a lack of preinstalled exercise programs, with there only being 10 in total, compared to the double that number you get in other models by other brands, there is still room for versatile workouts with some great adjustable settings.
You can adjust the pedals to suit and the console. However, the most important adjustable settings we feel, in terms of offering the best workout that will keep you sweating and challenging yourself is the fact you can switch up or down the incline and stride. Although the adjustable stride length is mainly to accommodate your own specific height and size, it can be utilized to target certain muscle groups. Whereas the power incline is the best way to diversify your workout by ensuring you are not just running, jogging or walking across a flat surface the whole time.

All in all, we think the Sole Fitness E98 elliptical trainer is the perfect example of what Sole Fitness bring to the world of at home training machines. It does not have all the bells and whistles of many of its competitors, that’s for sure. What it lacks in that department, it makes up for in where the company has invested its time and efforts – in the overall performance it provides and durable construction. If you want a reliable machine, therefore, that does not need to be fiddled with much to enjoy, then give serious consideration to this trainer.
