The Star Trac Pro Elliptical Review — Best Buy Award Runner up $3000+

Today the Treadmill Sensei got in here at the DOJO one of those types of jobs he really enjoys: Star Trac commercial equipment going in to a gym. The freight company dropped off 6 Star Trac treadmills and ellipticals which we’re going to install at a Fresno area gym later on this week. I’ll talk about the ellipticals today and then review the treadmills tomorrow.

The ellipticals are the Star Trac Pro Elliptical (I believe the model number is 6130, but all you need to know is PRO), and they are about as close to the top of the heap there is. If Matrix is the Lexus of the fitness world then Star Trac is the Mercedes. If you need an immovable elliptical that will hold up to any work out you can imagine (bar none), then the Star Trac pro is the way to go.

The Star Trac Pro Elliptical uses the same frame and basics as its big brother, the Star Trac Elite Elliptical, but doesn’t have the changeable arm settings. You just get the standard elliptical workout with the Pro, but really, that’s all you’ll ever need, especially when you’re able to save hundreds of dollars by not getting the Elite upgrade.

The Pro ellipticals have a very smooth 20 inch stride, 8 programs, heart rate monitoring and control and weigh in right at 400 pounds — getting these things off the freight truck took 5 guys from the DOJO. I supervised because I am a delicate flower. I’m not sure why the max user weight is listed at 350 pounds because I’d guess it can support 400-450 with little or no problems. These machines are elegant tanks!

As I type this review, we have the 3 ellipticals lined up in the repair bay and everyone in the building is taking turns at working out on them…and these are some seasoned repair techs. I’ve never heard a complaint about a Star Trac Pro Elliptical ever. The only disadvantage that I can see, as I talked about in the Star Trac Elite Elliptical Review, is that the units come just about fully assembled and have difficulties in fitting through smaller doorways.

The Star Trac Pro Elliptical is definitely in the top 10 commercial ellipticals of all time. For being so damn good, the Treadmill Sensei gives the Star Trac Pro Elliptical a perfect 5 out of 5 golden buddahs.

For full commercial equipment, the Star Trac Pro Elliptical is about as good as you can get.
