Sunny Health Elliptical Reviews

Today we take a look at Sunny Ellipticals, from Sunny Health & Fitness, a brand known for offering basic cardio trainers at affordable prices. While you can find plenty of information on the six models they currently offer on their own website, they do not sell their own merchandise directly.

Fortunately, it is not difficult to find Sunny products, as they are available through many popular on and offline retailers including Amazon, Overstock and Walmart. Before we get into the products themselves, though, a little bit about the company…

Sunny Health & Fitness has been in business for over 10 years, working out of their Los Angeles headquarters. They offer quality merchandise distributed out of China and Taiwan and have a commitment to customer satisfaction that includes some of the most competitive pricing on the market today.

These are NOT high end, gym-quality machines, so anyone looking for a serious workout and intending to put a lot of wear and tear on their equipment should probably look elsewhere. But for the casual user who wants to get a solid, in-home workout without spending a fortune, Sunny ellipticals may offer a solution for your exercise needs.

For the widest selection of Sunny Health products, your best bet is Amazon. They offer six ellipticals in the present Sunny Health & Fitness line, ranging in price from about $100 to about $300. They each offer 8 resistance levels, anti-slip footplates, a monitor and two way standing capability. Other features vary from model to model.

The SF-E902 Sunny Air Walk Trainer, at just under $100, is by far Sunny’s most affordable model. At that price, you obviously shouldn’t be expecting a lot of bells and whistles but the Air Walk Trainer does offer a comfortable abdominal support pad, a computer that displays time, count, total distance and calories and a weight capacity of up to 220 lbs. It is very compact, with an extremely small 3 to 4 feet footprint that allows it to fit comfortably in almost any workout space. For a machine this low end, it has gotten quite good customer ratings at Amazon, with praise for the low impact workout it offers. The one consistent complaint across the board has been about a lack of resistance, but that is to be expected with such an inexpensive model.

The SF-E905 Sunny Magnetic Elliptical Trainer is a mid-level model, offered at around $140. It has all of the features of the more expensive models and includes smooth magnetic resistance with a micro-tension controller. As with all of Sunny’s ellipticals, it is designed to provide a smooth upper and lower body workout without excessive impact on the knees. It has received mostly good reviews, with some complaints about it being noisy and about it not being ideally suited for individuals with larger strides.

The P8300 Pink Magnetic Elliptical Trainer is offered for just under $150. For that price, you get an 8 level tension controller; meter function that enables you to keep track of time, speed, calories and total distance; large anti-slip platforms and a weight capacity of up to 220 lbs. The majority of customer reviews on Amazon have been 5 star, with users raving about how easy it is to use and how its small footprint takes up little room. On the negative side, there have been complaints about it being a little unstable and wobbly and difficult to assemble.

The SF-E906 Sunny Magnetic Elliptical Trainer, at around $220, is a step up from the E905 and is built to be comfortably used by larger individuals. It has a weight capacity of up to 250 lbs. and slightly larger stride. It has the same monitoring functions as the other models, including the hand pulse monitor, and it features an eight level magnetic resistance system. Since this is a relatively new model on the market, there hasn’t been any customer feedback yet but it should be similar to that of the other models, as it lives up to the same standards that Sunny has for all of its elliptical machines.

The SF-E1114 Sunny Elliptical Trainer is one of Sunny’s more expensive models at just under $250. It has the same meter function as all of the models and this one also includes a hand pulse monitoring system that allows you to keep track of your heartbeat. It’s got a 14-inch stride length and a weight capacity of up to 220 lbs. As it is a newer model, there are fewer reviews for this one and, despite its higher price, the overwhelming response has been negative so far, with complaints about a lack of sturdiness and the machine breaking down easily.

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E2310 Flywheel Elliptical Trainer is the most pricey model at right around $300. With its unique flywheel design, it offers all the benefits of both an elliptical and exercise bike workout. It has a chain drive with two way standing capability, large pedal construction to prevent foot slippage and an onboard LCD computer that displays time, calories, odometer, speed and distance. The customer response to this model has been overwhelmingly positive, with raves about its sturdiness and reliability as well as the intensity of the workout you can get from it.

Bottom Line

As we said before, Sunny Ellipticals are not top of the line machines that you would find in professional gyms. What they are is good, solid, budget ellipticals with a decent range of functions that should give you a comfortable workout in your home gym without skimping on quality. They’re affordable and have so far been well received by customers of all exercise levels, which speaks well for them.

If you’re looking for a good workout without breaking the bank and you have a limited amount of space to devote to in-house exercising, you could do much worse than considering an elliptical from Sunny Health & Fitness.
