JTX are a leading online retailer for home gym equipment, with the JTX Smart Stride 23 being part of their high quality ‘Smart Stride’ range of cross trainers. Working with a team of German engineers and patenting the technology that went into making this such a unique design and popular product, JTX have brought this technology to the UK for the first time.

Combining gym quality with a size that fits into your home, they are 40% smaller than some competitor machines. Elliptical trainers are desigfned to mimic the body’s natural running and walking motion.


Adjustable stride length

You can use the adjustable smart stride technology with 5 stride length settings to match and support your natural running stride.

The settings for adjusting the stride length allow you to use the JTX Smart Stride 23 with a stride length between 19 and 23 inches (going up in 1 inch increments to adjust perfectly to your preferred stride length).

You can adjust the stride length at the front of this cross trainer, where you will find a simple mechanism that requires you to unscrew a small handwheel and slide it round until the guide is pointing to the desired stride length.

The purpose of increasing and decreasing the stride length not only takes into account shorter and taller users, but also helps to move from more of a fast walking motion (shorter stride length) up to a running motion (longer stride length).


Adaptive motion technology

Thanks to the adaptive motion technology in the footplates and the clever way the footrest and handle sections are joined, this also makes the JTX Smart Stride 23 much shorter than other cross trainers, which can be an important factor if you are looking to buy this for a home gym and want to make the most of your space.

The smoothness of the stride motion helps to reduce the impact on your knees, hips and back, making this perfect for anyone recovering from an injury and wanting to start some light cardio. This motion is thanks to the large 12 kg flywheel and the overall high quality construction you will find with the JTX range of fitness products.

With the JTX Smart Stride 23 there are also two sets of handles, one that moves along with your leg motion and one stationary set. The stationary set is perfect for when you want to solely work on your leg development, while holding onto the main larger handles will inevitably work more of the upper body and particularly your back and biceps as you go through the running motion.
