About the Hudson Health Elliptical Trainer
The Hudson Health elliptical is called the EL3300. It retails for about $800 and the manufacturer claims it can handle 20 hours of use per week. The 100-pound frame is metal, not plastic, yet we have little confidence in its ability to deliver $800 worth of high-quality workouts. They don’t even include a labor warranty. Hudson Fitness’s description of their elliptical trainer as “light commercial” is frankly puzzling.
We review dozens of elliptical trainer brands much more favorably. The many options can be overwhelming, especially when companies like Hudson throw around the term “commercial” rather hap-hazardly. If you’re truly looking for a high-end (and expensive) product, start with Precor. Precor invented elliptical trainers and holds coveted patents. For the middle market and lower, NordicTrack and Sole are some good starting points.
