Hi there,
how many calories you burn depends
a) on your weight
b) on the exercise speed
c) on the exercise level

SOURCE: Is it better to get a rear-drive or front-drive elliptical trainer?

To best answer this question for you I have found an excerpt about this topic written by a fitness professional. Read it over and then consider your options.


"The rear-drive elliptical trainers have a more intuitive design," explained the fitness equipment expert. "When you exercise, inherent in this design is the proper biomechanical motion. It's a more natural motion. Most commercial units are the rear-drive type, because it has a floating system with free-rolling bearings. This means there are less mechanics, and less mechanics means less wear and tear. Also, mechanics in the back allow the user to sit forward, maintain the proper posture and, thus, get a better workout."

Our expert went on to describe front-drive ellipticals: "With front-drive elliptical trainers, they have to add extra linkage to make the pedals more comfortable. They also have to use a track, which can break down due to dirt build-up. There are more mechanical components, which need constant maintenance. More mechanics lead to more wear and tear and more noise. These machines tend to lose their smooth feel. The mechanics pushes the user back, making it necessary to lean forward, so the workout is not as effective as you get on a rear-drive model."

SOURCE: How do I clean my elliptical trainer?

You will notice that dirt accumulates on both the wheels and track. First, I suggest reading you user manual. To avoid dirt build-ups, I recommend wiping the machine after each use. This is not instead of a cleaning, but will limit the time you spend cleaning the machine. If your manual is not helpful, I found a great article called "Keeping Your Elliptical Machine Clean" - this should help.

When I program my Eclipse 1100 hr/a for any amount of time, it shuts off after 5 minutes.


The timing circuit has become unstable and the circuit board may be defective. Selection rates cannot be set and thus only a replacement controller will fix the situation.

My eclipse 1100 hour monitor is not working (already replaced batteries and still nothing)


Check it out. If you machine monitor shows and e-1 when trying to turn on. Take out the batteries and unscrew the four screws on the bottom of the monitor unplug it from the elliptical. Put the batteries back in turn on monitor the plug it back to the elliptical while still on and screw back in places. It worked for me hope it works for you too.

Monitor diplays E1 and won't stop beeping


Fitness Quest Eclipse 1175e Elliptical Trainers were recalled on December 11, 2007 for a fall hazard. During exercise, the foot pedal crank can break. After receiving 190 reports of the crank breaking, the company is offering a replacement product or credit toward other Fitness Quest products. If the pedal falls off, be sure to save it; you will need the right foot platform to claim the replacement or credit.
Owners should stop using the elliptical trainer immediately. Owners can receive a replacement with another Fitness Quest product or credit.

E1 errors are usually lubrication/resistance issues. Has the unit been oiled/greased recently?
