The Smooth Agile DMT is regarded as one of Smooth Fitness’s best elliptical machines. Not only has it received the title of ‘Best New Elliptical 2009’ from another top review site but it has seen 88% of Smooth customers recommending this awesome piece of equipment.
From the get go on delivery, once you open up the well packaged boxes, the sheer weight in the parts is enough to help you realize how sturdy the equipment will be once assembled. Initially, you may have trouble maneuvering the machine into position but don’t let this put you off as the weight is an advantage. For those who need help with assembling, Smooth Fitness offers a FREE DVD on request.
As with most bulky packages being shipped across the globe, there is the likelihood that some damage may occur. In this case Smooth Fitness has always done their best to accommodate replacements at no charge. You can also feel safe with knowing that these elliptical machines come with lifetime frame, 5 year parts and electronics and 2 year IN HOME labor warranties.
The initial observation once starting to use the Smooth Agile DMT is the very smooth oscillating motion. Even once you fire the resistance up a few settings and really get going, no matter what size of a person you are, the elliptical doesn’t shift a millimeter. It is unbelievable how stable these elliptical machines are.
The large foot pads come with shock absorbing inserts. Combined with the housing at the top of the pedal, your feet are kept well in place to stop any unnecessary movement and give a comfortable full muscle workout without any numb feeling. The complimenting handle bars help form the perfect workout posture and come equipped with heart rate pulse sensors but also a nifty control to allow you to adjust the resistance at the flick of a thumb.
What really stands out with the Smooth Agile DMT unlike many elliptical machines is the ability to set different motion levels depending on the workout you want to perform. Arc-type trainers can work different muscle groups during a workout, so both strength and cardio training is performed at the same time. With 12 different motion levels, the pedal angles change as well as the stride length…such a fantastic feature! By experimenting with the various motions and by also pedaling in reverse, it becomes quite apparent the different muscle groups that can be worked. You will definitely feel it in your quads! A water bottle holder is directly in front of you below the console for easy access during those high intensity endurance workouts. The console contains the usual buttons and bright displays. There is a feature which allows you to scroll through your vital statistics during workouts and setting up programs couldn’t be simpler.
