If you’re looking at used elliptical machines in your search for the perfect balance of high-end features and a reasonable price, you should pat yourself on the back. Today’s used or remanufactured elliptical trainer can be an excellent choice if you buy from a company that specializes in reselling quality exercise equipment.
There are companies that specialize in used equipment by putting all of their used equipment through their “remanufacturing” process in order to provide truly high quality and safety to their customers. A remanufactured elliptical machine can seldom be distinguished from a brand new model, but will usually be sold for up to 50% less.
You have a few options. There are some companies online that specialize in refurbished machines.
But a good starting point are the used elliptical machines at Amazon, where you will find a wide variety of brand names to choose from including Schwinn, ProForm, Precor and others.
So start there on your search. If you can't find it there check out eBay as well as individual sites that specialize in refurbished ellipticals.
As with new units, make sure you are aware of the warranty, and if it isn't long enough, opt for one of the protection programs just in case something happens with the machine down the road.
The lower end models tend to have shorter warranties to begin with, so just make sure you are covered.
