Smooth Fitness was established in 1984 as a bricks and mortar fitness specialty store and made the move to on-line sales in 1996. Today, Smooth Fitness is the only manufacturer of fitness equipment that sells primarily on-line (90% of total sales are on-line). By eliminating the overhead of retail operations, they can offer their products at a lower price.
Their product lines include treadmills, and elliptical trainers. Smooth Fitness used to also sell home gyms, but has since abandoned this line. Since the Internet is their primary sales channel, they are focused on servicing customers who purchase on-line. Smooth Fitness offers a 30-day money-back guarantee (60-day on the DMT) and all treadmills and elliptical trainers are backed by a 1-year in-home repair warranty
They provide an extensive nationwide network of certified technicians and also encourage customers to email questions to their support group.
Smooth Fitness Ellipticals:
The selection in ellipticals from Smooth Fitness until 2005 was limited to 1 model: the CE. The PE, an entry level, low-end trainer, and the ME are no longer available. The great news is that in 2005, Smooth Fitness extended the line of Smooth CE ellipticals to include 2 more affordable ellipticals below the CE and a higher-end, commercial grade model.
Smooth Fitness introduced a line of ellipticals in 2008 called the "Agile DMT". Based on a patented technology, the DMT models employ adjustable motion for an enhanced range of motion resulting in more efficient workouts. In addition, the postion of the foot pedals places the toes ahead of the knees to reduce stress on the knees. The DMT models are very solid machines, but we feel that most home users on a budget can do quite well with the less expensive Smooth models such as the CE 7.4 and CE 3.6.
Not content to stay still, Smooth continued to make changes beginning in 2009. This was more of a consolidation and tidying up effort that we whole-heartily applaud. Several low end models of much lesser quality and durability were removed from the Smooth Elliptical line and most notably, the Smooth CE 3.2 was redesigned and re-launched as the Smooth CE 3.6.
