Eclipse elliptical trainers by Fitness Quest, Inc. were introduced through televised infomercials. Today the machines can be purchased online, at major chain stores, and through catalogs. Eclipse ellipticals are relatively low priced, falling into the lower and middle price ranges. They are also relatively basic machines, but they tend to have better warranties than comparably priced ellipticals.
Ohio-based Fitness Quest also distributes other brands of fitness products such as Ab Lounge, Easy Shaper, and New Balance. Their Eclipse Ellipticals are made in the USA.

Overall Rating for Eclipse Ellipticals
The newer models of Eclipse elliptical trainers may be good budget buys for shorter, lightweight people. These durable machines include an important basic – a smooth glide – and extras such as program variety, pulse rate sensors, reading racks, and drink holders. However, many consumers have complained that the 1100HRA is noisy. For comparison – and especially if you require a longer stride — consider some other budget fitness brands such as ProForm or Weslo.
