Elliptical Trainer Reviews - Choose the Machine That's Right For You (2023 Update)

We've developed our elliptical trainer reviews to help you choose the machine that's right for your needs and budget.

We know that investing in your health is an important step in the right direction, but it costs money and can be intimidating, so we've tried to take some of the confusion out of it.

Our elliptical exercise machine reviews are based on several criteria, including the opinions of professional trainers and fitness experts.

We researched each manufacturer thoroughly and gathered information about each elliptical trainer from hundreds of sources, then included reviews by consumers just like you (you can submit your own review here).

Our ratings and reviews are unbiased, based on facts and information weve confirmed from a variety of sources so that you can compare with accurate information. We aren't compensated for any of our reviews. 


To give you complete and accurate elliptical trainer reviews we looked at every aspect of an elliptical machine that you should consider when comparison shopping, including price, features, reliability and durability, company reputation, warranty, comfort and range of motion, ease of use, pros and cons compared to others in the same price range, and the track record of the manufacturer.

All brands are here except for FreeMotion, HealthRider, Reebok and Weslo.  Those you will find on the ICON Fitness Reviews page.

Also, these are current models.  

For older models check out the Discontinued Elliptical Trainers page.

Elliptical Trainer Reviews - Feedback

Here's what some of our visitors had to say about our reviews:

"I just wanted to say how valuable I have found this site to be. What a fantastic job you have done for the wary consumer. I wish more was available in Canada, where I am trying desperately to find some of the models you have recommended, but most companies only ship within the US and maybe the UK. 

Regardless, I have found a wealth of unbiased information and will recommend your site to friends looking to buy an elliptical trainer. Thanks!"
 Dee, Victoria, BC, Canada

"Of all the sites out on the web I found yours to be the best in my education process. It's been awhile since I have spent this much time researching a major home purchase."
John, Cedar Park, Texas

With our elliptical trainer reviews in hand, we hope that you will be able to choose a machine that's the right fit for you and use it with satisfaction for years to come.
