Gold’s Gym CrossTrainer 480 Review


Intro

Gold's Gym CrossTrainer 480

The Gold’s Gym CrossTrainer 480 is a good beginner elliptical featured in the budget friendly, under $500 price range.

Similar to other ellipticals in its price range, the CrossTrainer 480 is not exactly loaded with intriguing features though it does include music compatibility (iPod & mp3 connectivity) and LCD display.

Performance speaking, the CrossTrainer 480 offers 10 levels of resistance and 16 inch stride length, but the longevity of the elliptical is definitely questionable.
