Gazelle Edge Trainer

Best Elliptical Fitness Machines
The Gazelle edge trainer gets good reviews. But one qualification people state, is that it is not strictly speaking an elliptical machine. The feet do not describe an ellipse (squashed circle) when exercising so the sensation is more like that of cross country skiing.

Some could see that it was possibly an entry level fitness machine but it can certainly improve fitness and lose weight. One reviewer lost 20 pounds in six weeks with a regular daily 40 minute routine.

People liked the simplicity of the Gazelle Edge – reasonable price, easy to assemble, easy to use and easy to store if that is what was needed.

Sole E35 Elliptical Trainer (2011 Model)

Best Elliptical Fitness Machines
The Sole E35 Elliptical Trainer received a majority of good reviews. The actual operation of the machine and its effectiveness got very good comments. One out-of-condition man and his wife lost 12 and 15 pound respectively, in the first month. As well, the reviews included people with heights ranging from 5’ 1” to 6’ 1”.

Some people commented that the Sole E35 Elliptical Trainer was just as good as the expensive ones found in gymnasiums, and had a very smooth operation and was very quiet. The automatic variation of the incline was popular and most thought the programming intuitive and although there was a lot of information on the display it was all clearly set out. The fact that you could change things “on the fly” was handy. The fan was apparently not strong enough and there was a mixed response about the quality of the audio.

Best Elliptical Fitness Machines
The Spirit Esprit EL-455 20-Inch Stride Elliptical had very good reviews with by far the majority of people being impressed with their purchase. The narrow width of the machine at just under two feet was useful for moving it about the house if necessary.

Positive comments were made about the heavy flywheel and the dual wheels on each side giving a very smooth ride. Some people noticed that this seemed to reduce the stress in their lower back when exercising. The Spirit Elliptical could be used by short and tall people (range in reviews 5’ 4” to 6’). Smooth and sturdy were common comments with appreciation given for a solid construction.

The Horizon Fitness EX-57 elliptical trainer

Best Elliptical Fitness Machines
The reviews for the Horizon Fitness EX-57 Elliptical Trainer were positive and the general theme of the comments was that the machine did what people expected it to do. The warranty swayed some people after doing their research or trying out various other trainers.

The Horizon Fitness machine operates in a very quiet manner with people able to listen to music or watch the TV without having to increase the volume above normal levels. People who had been in the room while the machine was in use weren’t distracted at all. There seemed to be a general consensus that the operation of the machine was very good and the various settings were very helpful in determining a good exercise program. Although some reckoned the toughest settings were very tough!! The LCD screen was easy to see and changing settings was straight forward.
