Thank you for writing actually unbiased reviews! Im a beginner and have a small budget for fitness, so I really wanted to make the right choice. Your reviews helped me choose the best discount elliptical trainer. Im really glad I didnt just buy what I first wanted. Eva, Boston, MA

Many thanks for the guidance with club elliptical trainers. It sounds silly now but we wouldnt have considered the ellipticals footprint if you hadnt mentioned it! When we re-do our gym, the brand we chose will let us fit more equipment into the same area. Very pleased to have found you! Meghan, San Diego, CA
