Thanks to its unique range of motion, the glider will help you easily switch from full run to slow walks, without having to constantly pause to change functions. In fact, users will be able to choose from five different functions to add some variety to their workouts. Entirely suited to users who want to indulge in interval training, this machine comes with an easy-to-read monitor that tracks time, distance, speed and calories burned. The varying functions also prevent your body from getting used to the same motions over and over again, which consequently helps you avoid the much dreaded fitness plateau.

Thanks to its variable strength, the Gazelle Edge provides far greater control over the motions. This way, you can also choose to engage the muscles in your lower-body. These include common problem areas like the hips, calves, ankles and the likes. For example, if you accelerate your stride on the machine and lightly shift your body position, you’ll be working your quads, hamstrings and glutes instead of just your arms and waist. By this token, the glider is slightly more advantageous than a regular fixed-stride trainer.

This ensures that all major muscle groups in your body are engaged during your exercise session. Therefore, the glider can also be used to build strength in your upper and lower legs. Since it provides such a low-impact workout, it is also suitable for elderly people: not only does it take their body weight off the knees and joint but it also protects your lower back, minimizing any risk of injury.

Ease of Use and Comfort

Exceptionally easy and comfortable to use, this particular model is ergonomically designed to protect your joints while maximizing efficiency. Thanks to its level of comfort, you will be able to add several extra minutes- if not hours- to your regular routine and hence burn more calories. Also, since the foot platforms are wide and textured, they’ll easily accommodate several shoe sizes while drastically reducing any risk of slipping.

Because the machine is generated by the operator, the machine features a unique smooth transition that ensures your comfort during the entire duration of your training session. In fact, it remains completely stable no matter how vigorously you work out. This stability is reinforced thanks to the 1-1/2 inch gauge steel built. The glider is also equipped with a system to mimic the athlete’s change of stride and pace. Best of all, it has a maximum user capacity of 250 pounds, which means that it can easily be used by overweight athletes. The handlebars are thickly covered with textured foam to provide a very stable grip even if your fingers get slippery. As far as the noise factor goes, this model features a near-silent mechanism that allows you to easily indulge in other activities during your exercise session.

If you live in rather small and cramped quarters, you’ll be glad to learn that the machine is extremely easy to fold: all you have to do is fold it up and stow it under the bed or closet until the next time you’re ready to use it again.

The Gazelle Edge comes partially assembled, which makes it very easy to join the remaining pieces together. Athletes also receive a detailed and illustrated instructions manual to further facilitate this step. While an overwhelming majority of users found it quite easy to assemble the glider but a couple of customers did have a few issues with the accessories and tools provided. While the boxed packaging comes with two regular wrenches and additional hardware, a few users found that it was much easier to use a socket wrench.

Conclusion

Extremely budget-friendly, the Gazelle Edge Glider does not compromise on quality. In fact, with the proper maintenance and occasional oiling, this machine can very easily last for several decades. It can quite easily sustain moderate-duty use and is quite easy to use. Weighing 42 pounds and measuring 48 x 28 x 53.8 inches, this exercise machine is protected by a solid manufacturer’s warranty.
