How would you like to have 3 machines in one when you exercise? Check out the Cardio Cruiser from Body by Jake

This one claims to take three machines like the recumbent bike, the elliptical trainer and the stair stepper and combine it into a single exercise machine. It is said to work out 95% of your body.

Benefits of the Cardio Cruiser

What will this machine do for you?

Here is what the Cardio Cruiser brings you:

  • Quick to tone the whole body
  • Gets you to your fat-burning zone quickly
  • The designof the machine gives you a powerful workout sculpting the body at the same time
  • comfortable workout(the recumbent bike)
  • Upper body toning (elliptical machine)
  • Lower body workout (stair stepper)


If you don't know what a Cardio Cruiser is, here's a photo:








You probably notice that you are sitting while using this, not standing up like most fat-burning machines. While you are in a recumbent position, it will vigorously workout the muscles in your thighs, calves and hips. How that happens is from the stepping motion of the foot pedals, almost like a stair stepper. Then, it works your arms, shoulders, back and chest using the handles. When you're done, simply fold up and store away.

The Cardio Cruiser is made from solid steel and offers up to 5 levels of resistance. You can adjust the seat in 7 different positions, that way you can get maximum comfort by readjusting to your workout. Using the power train technology, the machine gives you a smooth workout and can exercise up to 95% of your body. You get low-impact workouts that will target major muscle groups in your hamstrings, hips, glutes and thighs.

People who have used it are saying that in terms of use and functions, it delivers an exceptional cardio workout and tones muscles. Some reviewers didn't like the noise the machine makes, even though it claims to be a quiet workout. Some people have found it to be squeaky.

All in all, the Cardio Cruiser is easy to use, effective and affordable.
