Reebok RL645 Elliptical Trainer Review:
The Reebok RL645 is a step or two above the Reebok RL 525. It's built on a sturdier frame than the RL 525, has an LCD display, and also comes with a reading rack. If you are in the market for an affordable elliptical trainer then have a look at the RL645.
However, please do yourself a favor and read our article on Cheap Elliptical
Trainers first. Then consider if spending a little extra to get a lot more on a much higher quality elliptical such as the Smooth CE 2.1 or
the Tunturi C6 is a better decision. Both can be ordered easily on-line with free shipping included. See our Top
Rated Elliptical Trainers page for a complete list of recommended ellipticals.

The Reebok RL645 Elliptical Trainer is probably the best elliptical trainer that ICON Health & Fitness offers. The price is affordable because its components are inexpensive. However, it does offer quite a bit for the price. The adjustable incline ramp is a nice touch and it has a fairly solid frame. With an average selling price under $1000 this may be an elliptical trainer to consider if your budget is limited.
The RL 645 is best for light to moderate residential-use. Though it has a lifetime warranty on the
frame, parts and labor are warrantied for 1 year. This may sound adequate, but we recommend that you purchase an extended warranty if offered since the drive mechanism and console electronics
are expensive to have repaired.
