Overview And Features

The swinging, sliding and rolling movements help to increase and initiate muscular response, which makes the body more energetic.
The LCD Display
Another impressive feature that the Panasonic trainer has to offer is the LCD display. The display will tell you which muscles you’ll be using for a particular workout, how many calories you’ll burn for each exercise and the time you have remaining to complete each exercise. This allows for a more systematic and accurate exercise approach. You’ll be able to choose from seven preset workout programs, which range from the beginner level to advanced. All the programs and their characteristics will be also shown on the display.
This machine also features a user mode that allows you to adjust the settings, giving it a more customized feel. This custom mode is what most people usually use, as the pre-programmed modes are almost never as per your exact taste.

Panasonic designed this machine to benefit the user who is unable to perform strenuous exercises. This type of training programs won’t put strain on the joints, which eliminates injury caused by a vigorous exercise program. It also makes it easy for people with heart issues to train, as it doesn’t wind you up, nor does it greatly increase your heart rate, while at the same time you are actively engaged in the exercise.
All that is thanks to the specially designed ergonomic saddle which covers the whole top part of the trainer. It is very comfortable and won’t cause any unnecessary wear on the inside parts of your legs.
The materials used here are also very premium. Everything is sturdy and there is no wobbling or squeaking when its in use. It is also surprisingly quiet so you can train without bothering your significant other or the rest of the people in your house. Compared to other rodeo trainers, a slight downside is that it can be a bit heavy to move around and is also considerably bulkier.
All that premium comes at a price, though, and this Panasonic trainer is one of the more expensive ones we’ve reviewed here.
When it comes to working out at home, for some people their choices for fitness equipment can be very limited because of lack of space. This Panasonic model is easy to move and store and is quiet running, which means you can use it even when the whole family is still sleeping, or if you live in an apartment. Also included is a one year warranty.
