Best Elliptical Trainer Reviews (2014)

Elliptical trainer mimics the motion of running, but you will never need to lift your feet above the footpad, as a result it provides low impact cardio workout. Most of the trainer comes with moving handle, incline (subject to model) and adjustable resistance; providing a full body workout (far better than any treadmill). We have rated and reviewed each item based on price, features, noise, assembly and built quality. To help buyers we have reviewed 130 trainers available in the market and sorted them out according to price range and brand.
