Although the Body-Solid G1S is comparable to larger home gyms in terms of performance, features and accessories, its MSRP is under $1,000, giving your wallet less of a workout than the $1,999 Bodycraft Galena Pro.
The Schwinn 470 is the most affordable elliptical we reviewed, and its MRSP is more than $2,000 below the most expensive machine, the Sole E95.
The Sole E95 is a popular, highly-rated elliptical that would have scored higher in our rankings if it had a lower MSRP.
The Sole E35 has a thick steel frame and features a quiet drive system with both forward and reverse functionality. It has a 25-pound flywheel and a high gear ratio for smooth performance, and its four rear wheels ride on heavy-duty rails to provide added stability.
The ProForm SMART Endurance 920E holds its own as a solid, yet smaller than average, elliptical machine.
The BXE216 is Bowflex’s top-of-the-line elliptical machine. It’s built to provide a smooth, full-body workout, and its signature Burn Rate console provides extensive user feedback.
The C12.9 is a high-performance, front drive elliptical machine from NordicTrack that introduces several upgrades to our previous top pick, the NordicTrack C9.5. While we still count the C9.5 among our favorites, the C12.9 is a clear leader.
During our last review of elliptical machines, the NordicTrack C9.5 earned our highest rating. This popular elliptical continues to make a competitive showing as one of the best home machines available, but it’s been edged out of our top three by several newer, upgraded models.
The Nautilus E618 is priced hundreds of dollars below comparably equipped ellipticals in our lineup. It has a 30-pound flywheel and a 22-inch stride length.
