The Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer is unique due to its dual function design. You can use it as an elliptical trainer or as an exercise bike. Considering that it can provide you with two different workout out experiences, the very reasonable price becomes even more surprising.
A budget friendly price on a dual function machine should probably draw extra scrutiny. Any compromises made by the manufacturer to keep the price down may be multiplied by the fact that machine has to function as both an elliptical and an exercise bike. Read this review to learn more about the shortcomings of the Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer.
Stride length is definitely one of the areas that has been compromised. People of average height and above, especially those with long strides, could definitely feel hemmed in when working out on this machine. This limitation only applies to the machine when it is functioning as an elliptical trainer. As an exercise bike, the lack of stride does not come into play.
It is easy to turn the resistance knob on the Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer. The highest resistance levels should provide people in better than average shape with a sufficiently challenging workout. The machine does come up a little lacking when it comes to extremely challenging workouts for advanced users. Experienced bodybuilders and exercisers find that the highest resistance level is not quite enough. Novice exercisers should find the low resistance levels to be the perfect place to start.
The Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer is equipped with a very basic computer monitor. While many exercise machines come with the ability to measure heart rate, that is not the case with the Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer. It does, however, allow a user to track calories burned, time, speed, and distance.
This machine comes with a fan that provides a steady stream of cooling air during workouts. Most exercise equipment fans end up lacking in power, but the Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer seems to have a fan that can deliver effective cooling strength.
An adjustable seat makes it relatively comfortable to use this machine as an exercise bike. The user can change the horizontal and vertical position of the seat in order to find the perfect fit.
Assembly and Storage
It should come as no surprise that the Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer is uncommonly difficult to assemble. If you are handy and experienced with assembling exercise equipment, this product may not pose any problems for you, but you could be in store for a marathon session if you are not particularly handy. Some users have reported more than two hours for assembly time.
The Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer is relatively lightweight. Combined with its easily foldable design, it should be easy to move and store this machine when it is not in use.
The BRD2000 comes with a one-year warranty for the frame and a 90-day warranty the covers all parts.
When assembled, the machine measures 36 x 28.5 x 57.5 inches. It has a shipping weight of 67.5 pounds.
The 2-in-1 design of the Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer has received mixed reviews from users. The majority of customers claim that the machine is a good value for the money. These users commonly cite the machine’s quiet and smooth operation, its versatility, and its affordability as the biggest positives.
With an overall average rating of only out of 5 stars, it is clear that some users have complaints.
A few users reported that their Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer suffered a malfunction of one kind or another within the first few months of use. In one case it was that the monitor stopped working, and in another it was an issue with parts breaking down. This does not seem to be a widespread problem, but it is something to keep in mind.
The most common complaints are directed at the stride length and the wobbliness of the machine. Both of these issues can have an impact on your enjoyment of the Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer. It is wise to keep potential issues like this in mind as you weight the pros and cons of other devices.
This is not a high quality machine with tons of features to keep the user interested. To get that kind of product you will have to pay significantly more. If you are willing to compromise on sturdiness and stride length, which may not be an issue at all if you are a smaller man or woman, then the Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer can allow you the convenience of a 2-in-1 design in an affordable package.
