Cross Trainer Hire or Buying Advice

Hiring could cost more than buying…

A gym quality cross trainer hire costs about £50 per month. You could also buy your own for as little as £24 per month. JTX Fitness offer interest free credit on all fitness equipment over £350. All you need is 20% to 50% deposit* and a good credit history, then you can spread the rest of the payment over 6 or 12 months. Then you’ll have a fantastic cross trainer to use for years to come.

Cross Trainer Hire Tips:

1. Choose the right cross trainer for your height. Stride length is the single most important factor to ensure optimum performance and movement. Exercising with gym quality cross trainers will help you to achieve your fitness goals faster and reduces the chance of injury.

2. We recommend you look for a cross trainer with a foot print larger than 130cm long and 70cm wide to ensure a stable workout. This is particularly important if you weigh more than 13 stone, or you will be exercising at high intensity (e.g. running rather than walking speed).

3. Make sure you’re covered for a quick replacement or repairs if the machine breaks down; A lot of cross trainer hire companies will leave you paying weekly fees but take their time fixing any problems.

4. Manage your expectations; can you really achieve what you want to in a month or two or would buying a cross trainer make more sense?

5. Compare the rental cost with buying your own machine on interest free finance. With our interest free credit option you could be up and running on our best-selling JTX Strider X7: Home Cross trainer for as little as £24 per month.

Why are JTX Cross Trainers Good Value for Money?

The reason our machines are less expensive than the big brands on the high street, is precisely that; JTX Fitness is not a big brand and we choose not to sell on the high street. We are independent home fitness specialists – we sell the same high-specification machines direct from our showroom and warehouse on the Sussex coast. We don’t spend vast amounts of money on celebrity endorsements, high street shops, distributors and expensive marketing campaigns. And we pass these savings on to you.

Our lower prices don’t mean you will have to compromise on quality or service:

  • We offer no quibbles 28 day returns if you are not completely happy with your cross trainer. You can even try out the machine first. Just keep hold of the packaging!
  • We offer home service warranties on all our machines. That means we’ll send an engineer to your home if there is a problem, and if it can’t be repaired we’ll send a replacement machine. Both the JTX Strider X7 and the JTX Tri-Fit come with 2 year home-use warranties, while the JTX Zenith comes with a 3 year home-use warranty as well as a 5 year frame warranty.
  • Our customer service record is exemplary, we score 9/10 based on more than 3,000 reviews independently collated by Trust Pilot.

Save Money and Time

You can save a great deal of both by having a cross trainer in your home rather than paying a visit to the gym. The convenience of being able to hop on at home when you get a few spare minutes is unbeatable and soon becomes part of your daily routine. Hiring a cross trainer for a month or two is a great solution if you have a quick goal to reach but we believe buying is a better investment.

If you’re still a little unsure whether you should buy or hire a cross trainer, please feel free to speak to our in-house personal trainer. You can call us any time or use our live chat tool.

If you’re local to Shoreham-by-Sea why not pop in and try out all of our cross trainers before you decide. No obligation of course.

Note: Minimum deposit of £250 is required.
