“The cord is too short”, “The cord is too long, I keep tripping on it”, “I can't put it outside, since there's no outlet”, or simply, “Oh, I didn't know I needed to plug it in!” We got the idea of a self-powered cross trainer by listening to our sports users. We chose your favourite cross trainer in our range (the Comfort) and equipped it with a self-powering system. A true team effort between you, our partners, and us :)
On a cross trainer, you put your body's main muscle groups to work. The wider your range of motion, the more your muscles work: so you get more toned! But there's more, the cross trainer is, above all, a cardio-training tool. And cardio work is essential to supplying your muscles with oxygen, understand? So the more you move, the more your muscles work, and the more your heart is put to the test!
Pedalling comfortably means a smooth motion without jerking. The flywheel's weight is fundamental to this smoothness. The more regularly you plan to train, the more important the weight of the flywheel will be to your comfort.
The EL520 helps guide you through workouts by displaying 6 functions: - time - distance - speed - calories - heart rate (using the "Hand Pulse" sensors) - pace Also 9 training programs sorted by level: - 1 GETTING BACK IN SHAPE - 1 GETTING IN SHAPE - 1 5 km PROGRAM - 3 WEIGHT LOSS - 3 PERFORMANCE And there's more! Get motivated, reach your goals, or just have fun by connecting your device to the compatible apps Econnected and Kinomap.
During your fitness cardio session, comfort is absolutely essential, especially if you train regularly. So we decided to work on several aspects for you. The EL 520 has: - an overall ergonomic shape adapted to your training - manual controls - stability adjustments - a self-powered system - a heart rate monitor - pedal locks
Small benefits make life easier, like: - wheels to easily move your cross trainer from one place to another - handpulses that indicate your estimated heart rate both easily and quickly - a tablet support that lets you easily install your smartphone or tablet on the console - a bottle cage for easily staying hydrated while training - a locking system on the pedals for maximum safety

    Zero support from Decathlon and Domyos

    We’ve tried to fill in form after form to get some after sales support to no avail. We keep getting directed to the same webpage yet no one seems to know how we can get our brand new elliptical from you to work! This is very bad customer service and I would not ever recommend buying another product from this company.

    Console not turning on

    *Console not turning on*

    Please help! Our console is not turning on - does anyone have any advice for us? We have spent one whole day building this, and when we finally finished, we got on it, and expected the screen to come on when we pressed "OK". The screen on the console isn't turning on - is it broken?

    Very grateful for any advice.

    Por fin una elíptica sin cables

    La puedes poner en cualquier parte gracias a que no necesita enchufarse. Tiene diferentes programas, en mi caso prefiero adaptar la "dureza" de la sesión acompañada con música. Mide el pulso y además puedes colocar el móvil sobre el display bien para seguir el progreso de la sesión bien para entretenimiento mientras la usas. También puedes descargarte la app para guardar la sesión en el móvil y compartirla.
