Elliptical Cross Trainer - TUNTURI C6


The Tunturi C6 was a Consumer Digest Best Buy in 2004 and rated by others as a great elliptical.  It is due for replacement with the C60; however a review of the Tunturi website shows the specifications on both elliptical trainers to be almost identical. So, if you can't find a C6, look for the C60.


Best Recommendation

The Tunturi C6 is probably the best value for money in the elliptical trainer market. It's quality build and variety of programs liken it to many considerably more expensive elliptical trainers, and yet its compact size makes it an easier addtion to smaller spaces.

Best Features

Quality - Quality - close to gym quality

Ride Performance - Smooth ride and very quiet.

Compact size – only 4 1/2 feet long, making it ideal for home gyms, bedrooms or living rooms

Computer Programs - more variety and programs than either Life Fitness and Precor.

Customisation - Allows customization of the Heart Rate programs on the fly, then press memory to save the changes you made. Stores up to 8 versions.

Assembly – very easy, takes about an hour. Directions were good .

Cost - Around the $USD1000 mark, making it an good value option for the quality.


Worst Features

Stride - shorter stride than some but can be adjusted at the pedals

Size - its compact size means the motion is more vertical which can be a little bouncy for some. Also means the motion is more vertical which can be a little bouncy for some and may be too light for heavier persons – 200kg+. Smaller size units can mean knees can hit the water bottle holder, if mounted.

Weight - over 160 lbs



  • Polar heart rate monitor is very accurate
  • Smooth performance. 9.5 out of ten! Smooth as Life Fitness products.
  • Program console provides a wide range of workouts and intensity levels.
  • Adjustable steps heights
  • Adjustable stride
  • Assembly – very easy, takes about an hour. Directions were good .
  • Weighs approximately 160lbs

Limits Of Use

User limit is 245 lbs

Water bottle holder does not come standard - There are two screws where the water bottle holder should be on the vertical bar, but the standard issue does not include the holder. Use of the water bottle holder in this position would depend upon your height. Anyone over 5’7” would probably risk having knees hit the water bottle holder.


User Tips

Squeaking Noise - fixed by adding washers per manufacturer.

NB: Any elliptical trainer issue represented here is only that experienced by an individual users and as such does not necessarily indicate poor quality on all units. They are included here purely as a guide as to likely problems with tips on how to remedy.
