The FE44 is the simpler of Fuel Fitness’s two elliptical models. It’s inexpensive yet durable enough to give shorter, lightweight exercisers a challenging workout. The FE44 has an 18” stride, good program variety, and an iPod port for audio entertainment.
The FE44 has an MSRP of $999, but Fuel Fitness has been known to offer an online price of $599.99 with shipping included.

Overall Rating for the Fuel FE44 Elliptical Trainer
Fuel ellipticals provide good value when bought on sale. Otherwise, their relatively short one-year parts warranty signifies a gamble not worth taking. The ProForm brand has a similar warranty on its cheaper ellipticals, but it offers more exciting options. The ProForm 790E, for example, includes iFit and incline training.
