The Endurance by Body-Solid E400 Elliptical Trainer is built with a patented center drive design and a low center of gravity providing a smooth and quiet cardio workout.
The E400 Elliptical has an adjustable 17”-21” stride to ensure the best fit for all users. Dual-action upper and lower body movements provide a total body workout.
Fully adjustable with 20 levels of resistance, the E400 Elliptical also features a wireless HRC (heart-rate control) with a chest strap that keeps users in their target zones.
The Endurance by Body-Solid E400 Elliptical Trainer is programmable with six preset programs, five heart-rate programs, manual mode and two user profiles.
The center drive design provides a more compact and stable platform than front or rear-drive ellipticals without compromising biomechanics. The Endurance by Body-Solid E400 will fit into rooms and homes other machines cannot.
Additional features include a 300 lb. weight capacity, a low step-up height of just 8”, an interactive LED display, transport handles for movement and a water bottle holder.
The Endurance by Body-Solid E400 Elliptical Trainer is backed by a strong 5-year in-home warranty, including 1 year of in-home labor.
The E400 offers variosu program modes including a Quick-Start Mode, 6 Preset Program Modes, 5 HRC (Heart Rate Control) Programs, and two User Profile Modes.
This program takes the user gradually up to a high resistance level, then brings the resistance level back down to the starting point. This program simulates what one might encounter on a true mountain course. This is a difficult program since higher tension levels are maintained for long periods of time.
This program takes the user through two hill profiles. Resistance changes are small during this program. This is a good program to get started with or for someone looking for a lower stress workout.
This program randomly generates a new program profile every time it is chosen. This allows you to keep the workouts fresh and motivating. When you scroll thru the programs to reach the RANDOM program, you will be able to see the program profile. If this profile is not to your liking, simply scroll thru the programs again and a new RANDOM program will be generated. The RANDOM program will be different every time you use it.
This program simulates interval training thru a series of two hill profiles.
This program simulates interval training thru a difficult mountain profile.
This program simulates interval training with more extreme levels of high and low intensity levels.
The 5 Heart rate control programs are designed to automatically change resistance to keep your heart rate at a predetermined level based on the selected Heart Rate program. Each Heart Rate program is designed with a specific goal in mind. The E400 includes a Heart Rate Chest Strap for wireless monitoring. (more...)
User Profiles U1 and U2 allow you to customize and save an exercise session.
The E400 comes equipped with Heart Rate Contacts as well as a Heart Rate Control Chest Strap for use with the 5 HRC Programs. The Heart Rate Control Strap sends your heart rate information to the console for processing. Heart rate control programs are designed to automatically change resistance to keep your heart rate at a predetermined level based on the selected Heart Rate program. Each Heart Rate program is designed with a specific goal in mind.
% Target Heart Rate allows the user to select a percentage of Maximum Heart Rate that would like to be maintained during the exercise session. The percentage range can be varied from 50% to 85%.
HR 80% maintains the Target Heart Rate at 80% of the Maximum Heart Rate by automatically adjusting resistance levels. This program provides for a high intensity, cardiovascular workout.
HR 65% maintains the Target Heart Rate at 65% of the Maximum Heart Rate by automatically adjusting the resistance levels. This program provides the ultimate fat burning workout.
HR Hill simulates hill training by changing the Target Heart Rate thru 3 different percentages. The changes will occur as follows: 65% - 75% - 85% - 75% - 65% -75% - 85% etc. Each percentage will be held for 3 minutes before changing to the next percentage.
The HR INTERVAL program alternates between 65% and 85% of your Max HR. This program provides an excellent fat burn and cardiovascular workout. Each percentage will be held for 4 minutes before alternating to the next percentage.
The most common method for calculating your target heart rate is to find your maximum heart rate.

The E400 fieatures a 2-window, color LED Display with easy-to-use funtional buttons and program controls.
The MESSAGE WINDOW displays Program Names, Messages, TIME, DISTANCE, SPEED, STRIDE/MIN, CALORIES, PULSE, RESISTANCE LEVEL and CALORIE/HOUR.
This 10 X 14 LED Profile Window displays Program Profile, Tension (Resistance) Bar, Heart Rate Bar (HR Programs only), Lap Progress Display and Lap Counter. The Profile Window toggles between program profile (displayed for 10 seconds in window) and lap counter (displayed for 30 seconds in window), except in Heart Rate Programs.
Lap Display shows your progress around a virtual track. Lap Display also shows the resistance level in the first column. Every dot in the resistance column represents an increment of two resistance levels.
The E300 offers variosu program modes including a Quick-Start Mode, 6 Preset Program Modes, and two User Profile Modes.
