The Body Champ BRM3671 Cardio Dual Trainer would be reasonably priced if it only functioned as an elliptical trainer, but considering it also is designed to work as an exercise bike, just like other Body Champ models, it really has a very low price. While should not expect this product to last for years and years, particularly if you plan to do some intense exercise on it, it may be able to provide you with some value in the short to mid term.
This review will take a comprehensive look at all the positives and negatives offered by the Body Champ BRM3671 Cardio Dual Trainer. Make sure you weigh both sides before laying down your hard earned money.
With its relatively short 14 inch stride length, it appears the Body Champ BRM3671 Cardio Dual Trainer is targeted more toward women or people on the shorter end of the spectrum. If you are above average height as a woman, or even average height for a male, you may find this machine to be restricting and confining. At 275 pounds, the maximum user weight is also a little on the low side compared to similar machines.
To make up for lack of stride length, the machine does provide a quiet and smooth experience. This is true in both functions — elliptical and exercise bike. Despite the fact that it is a dual function machine, the Body Champ BRM3671 Cardio Dual Trainer does deliver a level of smoothness that compares well to single function machines in this price range.
There are eight resistance levels to cover the full range of fitness needs. Whether you are just starting and are looking for a low resistance option while you get into shape or you are already in tip-top shape and you want to be challenged, this machine can provide both.
Comfort is not a highlight for the Body Champ BRM3671 Cardio Dual Trainer. Some users have reported that the seat is a little lacking in padding, which makes it difficult to find a comfortable position while working out. However, the seat adjusts horizontally and vertically. That should provide some users with a better chance to find the right position.
Programs and Features
The computer monitor is the main technological feature of this model. It can help you measure many of the most important factors involved in tracking fitness goals and progress. Tracked data includes distance, speed, time, calories burned, and pulse.
Assembly and Storage
Users have reported that the assembly instructions are very well written and easy to follow. You might think that a complicated dual function machine would take hours and hours to put together, but most customers have stated that it only took them around 60 to 90 minutes.
It should not be overly difficult to move or find appropriate storage for the Body Champ BRM3671 Cardio Dual Trainer.
Backed by a one-year frame warranty and a 90 day parts warranty, the Body Champ BRM3671 Cardio Dual Trainer certainly does not have an exceptional warranty package, but it also is not worse than the average model in this price range.
The Body Champ BRM3671 Cardio Dual Trainer measures 38.5 x 24 x 12.7 inches and weighs 90 pounds.
The user reviews are mixed with positive and negative reactions. On the positive side, users like that the machine does function well as both an elliptical trainer and an exercise bike. They also appreciate how the diminutive size of this model makes it easy to assemble and store. In general, people have also reported that the low price is an advantage.
One of the main complaints is the lack of stride length. As mentioned above, it measures out at 14 inches, which is rather short for an elliptical. Some other users have reported minor squeaking and wobbling during workouts.
This is a case of “you get what you pay for,” which is so often the case with exercise equipment or everything else. There are some questions about the sturdiness and durability of this machine. As a dual function piece of equipment, that is not a shocking surprise. Still, at a little over $200, with the ability to provide a few years of effectiveness in two different categories, the Body Champ BRM3671 Cardio Dual Trainer could be a worthy investment for many. Anyone thinking about buying this model should keep the short stride length in mind. That could have a significant impact on the user experience.
