This is the only smart, magnetic elliptical with 18-inch stride lengths under $300. Because of the Bluetooth app, 24 resistance levels, and strong built quality, we ranked the Exerpeutic 5000 the best budget elliptical of 2017
This is the perfect elliptical for home users, made by a reputed company that sells at a competitive price. Fitness Reality could have easily priced it over $600. We only ranked it 2nd as there is no app synced to this machine
This was the most feature-packed, budget elliptical in 2016. As a few better trainers were introduced last year, it lost a bit of ranking but, with a heavy flywheel, 16-inch stride and good build quality, the FS 3.0 is still ranked 3rd.
“The Cubii is a new under-desk, smart elliptical that can be synced with popular fitness tracking apps. It makes your workout routines more personalized and interactive. A perfect fitness device if you are interested in losing some calories while working at your office desk.
This 3-in-1 elliptical offer everything the Proform Hybrid offers, but is for smaller households with its compact footprint. This solid, smooth trainer has 21-inch side and will not be a good choice for shorter users.
This trainer will surely surprise you. At this price point, none of the good elliptical trainers comes with as many features (heart rate monitor, Programmable workout). The Build Quality is good. But this elliptical is not recommended if you are above 5’10”.
Xterra FS 2.5 comes with a heavy 22 lbs flywheel, 14-inch stride, and 24 programs. Build Quality of this trainer is great (compare to others in the same price range). We especially like the compact, black look of this trainer. If you decide to spend $300 on an elliptical, this should be the one!
This is a very basic entry level elliptical. Gold’s Gym is a renowned brand for fitness and exercise, but the quality of exercise equipment they make are questionable. We had high expectations, but when we tested this machine, we were disappointed.
