    Precor is prob the best, and it shows in the price. We got a Sole and it's awesome! Look up stuff about the radius of the wheel, that makes a big difference in how much of a workout it gets you and how much easier it is on the body. I think a 20" stride strength is the best - we got the E25 by Sole

    Try the link enclosed to get a gauge. http://www.ellipticaltrainerreview.c...e-Reviews.html
    Also, if you have a used equipment place near you, check them out. If you're in a Metro area, keep an eye on Craigslist, you can find great ellipticals cheap. Personally, I love the Precor or the Lifefitness but they are both VERY expensive.

    I have one, but was cheaper one from walmart and don't like it nearly as much as ones at the gym. Mine is harder on knees. Right now my main exercise is swimming we have only a 15' round, but bought at pool store a swimmer thing that you hook around waist, other part on pole hooks outside of pool and you can swim without going across the pool (boy I tell you I didnt realize 10 minutes of the crawl was so exhausting)

    I have a Nordic-trac and I love it! I have had it for 4 years. The elliptical is an awesome work out for someone trying to thing down butt, legs, hips and thighs! I usually do it for 45 minutes at a time and it has made a huge difference in my lower body. I bought mine from Sears and it came with a service warranty. I would look and see what they have.

    Thanks. I am currently looking at reviews on the internet. I always thought Nordic made quality items.. Well good to know, I will not be getting one of those.

    We used to have an elliptical. It was good exercise but it wasn't made very well b/c it always needed servicing. it was by nordictrak so if u decide to get one, avoid them lol.
    The proof is in the pics!!! <3





    Starting over again!!!!

    Default Elliptical

    I have one of those medical savings account from work and recently found out, they will reimburse for exercise equipment.

    I am thinking about getting an Elliptical. I have only used one once, so I know very little about them.

    Is there a brand that any of you particularly like? OR is there a different piece of equipment you like better?

    I need something. Right now I just have a small pool and it isn't really helping me get the exercise I need and I certainly can't afford a gym right now.

    Thanks for your help in advance.
