Because this machine is so very flexible, this means it can easily be used as an elliptical trainer, a treadmill, or a stair climber depending on your own personal preferences.

The Bottom Line
This model beats out the pricier AMT 885 model that is well over $2,000 more. The 835 is still designed with the Open Stride™ feature unique to these trainers, and also comes with a design that requires little to maintenance. The modest console offers users just what they need and not much else, but the unique design of the AMT trainer speaks for itself. Bottom line: you can’t beat a piece of equipment that boasts three machines in one.
