Elliptical Reviews and So Much More!

In addition to the reviews we’ve put together some informative articles on why elliptical machines are so popular, the great health benefits you can expect when working out on one and getting the most out of your machine once you’ve purchased it.

After all, we wouldn’t be doing our job if we simply stopped with the purchase – when you’re investing in something as important as an elliptical machine, getting the most out of it after the purchase is just as important as the purchase itself!

You can search through all of the popular ICON ellipticals including NordicTrack and ProForm, as well as all of the other top brands including Horizon, Sole, Bowflex and Yowza.

If you're looking for higher end models, our experts have also covered the gym-quality ellipticals from Matrix, Precor, Octane and Life Fitness.

"Thank you for your reviews of the NordicTrack elliptical machines on your site. They were very comprehensive and simple to read. You had some great pointers for people like me who are beginners on a budget, but want to spend our money wisely!

Your elliptical trainer reviews helped me make an informed (and hopefully sensible) decision when purchasing my new exercise equipment. I will definitely be recommending your site to family and friends. Thank you so much!" Shanna
