Smooth CE 8.0 LC Elliptical Review

The Smooth CE 8.0 LC Elliptical is a commercial grade elliptical trainer that is convenient for exercising at home. It has a comfortable, natural, and large stride surface. It is one of the nicer models that Smooth has to offer.

The 8.0 LC is one of the most sturdy and stable elliptical trainers on the market. This elliptical can most definitely withstand heavy daily use. The max user weight is a whopping 400 lbs, which means this elliptical can handle almost anything. You can feel even more safe by the industry leading warranty that Smooth offers. They give this machine a lifetime warranty on the frame and braking system, 10 years on all parts & electronics, and 2 years in-home service. Wow, you cannot really go wrong with a warranty like this.

This elliptical is packed with built-in programs! The breakdown goes like this: twelve preset programs, four heart rate programs, one watt control, one personal program, one random program, one pulse recovery program, and one manual program. All together there are 21 programs on this elliptical, which happens to be the most programs that Smooth ellipticals offer. So, if you are really concerned about programs, I’d go with this elliptical or the Smooth E4250 Vertical Trainer. These are the only two ellipticals that offer this many programs.

The top features on the Smooth CE 8.0 LC Elliptical are:

  • Wireless Chest Belt
  • Heavy Duty Flywheel
  • Magnetic Braking System
  • 21 Challenging Programs
  • Water Bottle Holder
  • 21″ Stride Length
  • Virtual Fitness Trainer

In my opinion, the CE 8.0 LC is a great elliptical that is set at a pretty reasonable price. The chances of you being disappointed with this machine are extremely low. If you happen to not like it, Smooth gives a 60 Day Money Back Guarantee. I would recommend taking advantage of that if you happen to dislike the machine.
