Doufit Portable Elliptical Trainer with Magnetic Resistance, EM-01 and EM-02 Review

Doufit EM-02 is a modern 2019 release portable elliptical fitness machine for cardiovascular- aerobic workout at home. It has the adjustable magnetic resistance, dual action arms for an upper body workout and an LCD display with the usual indicators including pulse rate.

You have the option to purchase the same elliptical trainer without seat (Doufit EM-01) and the price difference is 20 dollars for the seat on the day of this product review. Doufit Elliptical has an average user rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars by 14 customers that seem to be generally happy with the product. It comes with a good quality flywheel for a quiet and smooth operation.

You can enjoy a low-impact whole body workout every day and work on your legs, hips, calves, core section, waist area and arms, burn calories and strengthen and tone muscles depending on the resistance level. There are 8 levels of magnetic resistance on this bike for different intensities that can be adjusted via the tension knob in the middle. Highest resistance levels will give you more of a strength training and lighter levels will be more aerobic. It offers a low impact workout that is easy on your knees and joints. You can ride this elliptical both forward and back.

The digital LCD monitor will help you monitor your exercise stats including the distance traveled, total mileage, calories burned, current speed, time exercised and heart rate through the small fixed handles in the center. This way you’re more in control of things and should be able to achieve your fitness target quicker. You also have the smartphone holder underneath the monitor and you can watch videos and keep entertained during your session. It is a safe and reliable fitness unit with a heavy duty built-in steel frame and the maximum load bearing is 130kg or 286 pounds to be exact.

It also has the large textured anti-slip pedals for your comfort and you can feel totally safe and stable on it as long as you don’t go over the 286lb. limit. The stride length is 13.5 inches and the seat is adjustable to different heights for different users to sit at their optimal positions. They can feel relaxed and comfortable and exercise longer. Doufit Elliptical Trainer is not a foldable machine but still portable with the solid moving transport wheels for you to relocate it for storage. 

You can contact Doufit customer support team if you have any questions or problems. They stand behind their good quality products and promise to offer great customer service. All your family members can use it comfortably whenever they want. But it is designed for home use and would not be suitable for commercial gyms. Doufit Elliptical (EM-01 and EM-02) weighs 28.5 pounds and measures 62H x 50L x 20.5W inches as assembled. In the package you will get the elliptical trainer, LCD display, user manual and 2 x AAA batteries for the monitor. There is an assembly video at Amazon.com, under videos on the product page. Overall it seems like a good value product that we are happy to recommend.
