Vision X6100 And X6200HRT Elliptical Trainer Information

Vision elliptical trainers are considered mid to higher end fitness equipment. We recommend that you consider only elliptical trainers that exceed $1000.00 in price to assure quality and durability. Vision elliptical trainers meet this criteria. The Vision X6000 series models are considered to be very good quality elliptical trainer. In general Vision elliptical trainers are known for their quiet smooth and natural stride pattern. Vision elliptical trainers have the ability to fold up thereby presenting a smaller footprint.

We decided to find out if the Vision X6100 was worth its $1499.00 MSRP price. We found two vision X6100 to test at a local private fitness center. Our crew of 4 testers went to work on them with back to back 30 minute intensive workouts. Our crew favors rear fly wheel elliptical trainers over the front flywheel models. However the X6100 met their approval with smooth resistance that Vision ECB-Plus magnetic system control provides. It was easily adjustable using simple controls on the console. Two of the testers felt the machine could have been more stable. The Vision fitness X6100s’long stride length of 19 ¾ inches was really appreciated by our two taller testers. We also interviewed fitness center members who used the X6100 on a regular basis. One complaint we heard from these users was the lack of exercise programs on the elliptical trainer. According to Vision the X6100 elliptical trainer comes standard with only 6 programs.

We also talked to the fitness center manager to see what if any problems that were evident on the Vision X6100. He indicated that there was more maintenance on the Vision elliptical trainers then the PreCor elliptical trainers that the fitness center also used. He stated the fitness center had been using the X6100 and X6200HRT for about 4 months so he was unable to give us any indication of long term durability. The fitness center gave the Vision X6100 a qualified good rating. He also noted that the X6200HRT was more popular than the X6100 elliptical trainers.

Since the Vision X6200HRT elliptical trainer was also available to us we decided to check it out as well. According to Vision Fitness the major difference between the X6100 and the X6200HRT is the wireless telemetric heart rate monitoring. According to the fitness members we talked to they found this feature along with its four programs to be an important feature. Our testers found that unlike the Vision X6100 elliptical trainer the X6200HRT was more stable and had more programming options. The LED display on the console was also above average. All the testers like the articulating foot pads as it really made the long 19 ¾ stride very comfortable. One of our testers conducted a 2 ¼ hour workout on the X6200HRT elliptical trainer and said it was one of the most comfortable she had ever used. The strap that held the telemetric heart monitor did not stay on our largest tester who has a 54 inch chest.

At about $2000 the X6200HRT elliptical trainer is expensive for in home use, However if you have the money it is a pretty good elliptical machine. According the fitness center staff the X6200HRT elliptical trainer is a heavy piece of equipment. At approximately 200 lbs you may have to use care and good judgement when siting either of these elliptical trainers. Just like the X6100 elliptical trainer the X6200HRT folds up into a 42 inch footprint. The fitness center staff had only moderate problems in the assembly of both the X6100 and the X6200HRT. It should be noted that the Vision X series of elliptical trainers are designed for in home or corporate use. Corporate use is defined by using the elliptical trainer for 3 hours or less each day.

The Vision Fitness warranty For both the X6100 and the X6200HRT is pretty good with lifetime on the frame and magnetic braking system with 3 years on the parts including electronics. The cost of labor is only covered for a year. It is our suggestion that whenever you purchase any fitness equipment that you look at purchasing an extended warranty.

As a result of our testing we give both the X6100 and X6200HRT elliptical trainers a good rating for in home use.
