The Tunturi Pure F 8.0 Cross Trainer is among the top cross trainers available in Tunturi’s ‘Pure’ range.

This range has been created to offer an effective workout experience using a high quality cross trainer that has been built to withstand both home and light commercial use.

Design features

The Tunturi Pure F 8.0 has been designed with a number of useful features that can benefit your training.

The large foot plates feature a raised lip section at the front and down the sides to help prevent your feet from slipping forwards when running.

The low step up makes getting on and off the F 8.0 and all ellipticals in the Tunturi Pure range exceptionally easy for those with a restricted range of movement.

The frame supports that the foot plates are attached to have a very smooth action thanks to sliding along the metal tracks, which also helps increase stability when training.

The front handlebar section and display console support has been kept as simple as possible, while still being ergonomically designed to best suit a range of natural running motions.

The shorter set of handlebars also has a set of heart rate sensors to help monitor your heart rate during the specifically designed heart rate training programmes.

Display console design

In-line with the other high quality cross trainers in the Pure range, the Tunturi Pure F 8.0 features a very simple display console and intuitive screen options.

The 7″ full colour LCD screen is used to show a grid of icons, each relating to a specific training programme or the fitness test.

Navigating through the grid options, adjusting workout and user profile settings and making selections is all possible using the small dial on the main console.

If it isn’t clear what program the icons relate to, the right hand side of the screen will show a larger image and clear description as you scroll through the options.

While the dial will be the control used most often, there are also buttons for displaying the screen where you can setup user profiles and even custom workouts.

Workout programmes

The Tunturi Pure F 8.0 features 8 training options which range from simply working out at your own pace towards a set target, to workouts where the resistance will constantly be changing.

The ‘Quick Start’ training programme can be started just by moving the foot plates. This begins your workout, during which you can adjust the resistance through the 42 different levels and train until you choose to end the session.

‘Manual’ training is a little different. This allows you to set a time, distance or energy consumption target before you start your workout.

You will then work towards this target with the console sounding an alert once achieved.

If you are training towards a specific goal, whether it is fat loss or improving your aerobic fitness, knowing your heart rate throughout your workout is very important.

The Tunturi Pure F 8.0 not only allows you to track your heart rate, but also comes with a specifically designed workout programme just for showing you how close to your target heart rate you are throughout your training.

The heart rate programme also includes features of the Manual and Quick Start programmes, letting you set a target time or distance as well as adjusting the target heart rate.

‘Watt Control’ has been added as the main training programme to use if you are looking to adjust the resistance through different levels during your workout.

The Tunturi Pure F 8.0 has 5 workout programmes aimed towards heart rate target training and 5 aimed towards Watt Control.

While the majority of heart rate training programmes are aimed towards someone with a higher level of fitness, both the Watt Control and heart rate programmes are available in varying levels of difficulty.

How it compares to other cross trainers in the Pure range

The main difference between the Tunturi Pure F 8.0 Cross Trainer and others in the Pure range, such as the Pure R 10.0 is in the Tunturi specific workout programmes.

While the R 10.0 has 3 different types (T-Ride, T-Music and T-Road), the F 8.0 comes with the T-Ride, T-Trainer and T-Scale workout programmes available.

There is also a difference in the number of custom workouts you can create longer than 10 minutes in duration. Although the Pure R 10.0 allows up to 100, the Tunturi Pure F 8.0 is limited to 20.

The stride length is actually a little longer on the F 8.0 than the R 10.0 which will be of benefit to taller users looking for a cross trainer with a more natural running stride.
