The 2018 $1000 Elliptical Deal
If you are spending about $1000 on an elliptical then you can expect a mid range product, it should be comfortable and feel good to use. However, you should not expect the build quality of some of the commercial machines that you might find in a gym. Prices for these start about $2000-$2500 and go up to $10,000+
What you will get though, due to the fierce competition at this price point, are some of the manufacturers putting their quality mechanicals and motors into budget machines. The trade-off is that you might not get quite so long a warranty, or some of the features may be limited.
Our top pick is the latest version of the Horizon Fitness EX-59-2. We feel that this gives the best balance between build quality, warranty length and features.
