While looking for an elliptical machine you will soon realize that there a lot of different options available through a lot of models offered just as many different brands. It’s always a good idea to try to get an idea what you want from your elliptical trainer so you can narrow down your options. It could be deciding on a certain set of features you can’t be without and a price you feel comfortable with.
Usually all brands carry a range of products in their line, from more basic ones to professional machines aimed for gyms and serious home users. What will vary is which features are included in the different product line segments. The features that are only included in the most premium models from one brand might be available at at lower price from another brand, therefore you need to find a brand (and model of course) that offers the important featured based on your needs.
