The JTX Tri-Fit Review: Features
Below we are going to go through the in depth features of the Tri Fit cross trainer and see if they match up to what you are looking for.
Use the brief run down to help you understand what you’re getting for your money, and build a picture of just why this cross trainer comes with our recommendation as part of this year’s top ten cross trainers.
Adjustable Stride Length
This model has a very adjustable stride length to vary the intensity of your workout. The longer the stride length the more intense the work out as the motion gets closer to running. There are five different settings for the stride length starting at 16 inches for the less intensive workouts up to twenty inches for maximum intensity. One of the great things about this trainer is that it offers a large stride length that is generally only available on large models, whereas this is designed to still fit nicely into the home.
Variable Incline Settings
There are four variable incline settings on this model for two reasons. As the incline is increased the muscle groups that you work on altar giving you a more all round workout than a cross trainer that always stays at one level. The steeper the incline the more intense the work out gets from a cardio point of view. If you really want a tough cardio session then set it to the steepest incline and you will be working very hard. This is a great feature that enable you to mix up the types of training and muscle groups you work on.
A unique part of the design of this cross trainer allows you to use the variable incline and stride length independently, many cross trainers don’t allow this and the stride gets shortened as the incline gets steeper. This gives you maximum flexibility to set up to work out exactly as you want.

As well as the adjustable stride length and incline settings there are an incredible nineteen training programs that you can choose from. Whether you want to build base level fitness or work on cardio or high heart rate sessions there will be a program for you. Your heart rate can be measured by using a Polar chest strap.
