How To Find the Best Elliptical
When it comes to your ideal workout, you can't just randomly choose your fitness equipment. So when you're shopping for an elliptical, you should take a few things into consideration: Are you exercising for weight loss? Other health concerns? Endurance training? Fun? How much space do you have available for your home fitness equipment? What kind of tech features do you need to get your heart pumping? At Smooth Fitness, we know there are many elliptical choices out there. It may seem overwhelming, but we're here to help you wade through the many options to pick your ideal elliptical machine.
A good place to start is to consider the features you're looking for in your elliptical machine. Many of our ellipticals come with tablet-based controls and virtual trainers, so if you're someone who has a hard time staying focused during workouts or you just like playing with tech, you'll love these features. Options include adjustable stride, a variety of intensity levels, different exercise programs, heart rate monitoring, and varying pedal types, plus iPod integration and the SmoothSound™ Audio System to provide the soundtrack for your fitness adventures. Take some time to figure out what features you need to reach your goals, and then take a look through our elliptical machines or our elliptical trainer buying guide to see which one fits you best!
If you need an elliptical with adjustable motion and a broad stride length, then the Smooth Agile DMT Elliptical is for you. With Dynamic Motion Control and a 19"-24" stride length, this machine allows you to work different muscle groups and it's even iPod and tablet compatible! The Smooth CE 9.0 Elliptical is another great choice, with a 19"-23" stride length. Or consider the standard motion Smooth CE 7.4 Elliptical Trainer, which offers a 21" stride length, magnetic braking system, and a pivoting ergonomic foot pedal for optimal performance and comfort.
If you need something with a smaller stride length, the Smooth CE 3.6 Elliptical may be right up your alley. With magnetic resistance, ergonomic pivoting pedals and a stride length of 18", it's no wonder that this model has been highly rated by a leading consumer magazine for 2013. This elliptical machine also has an iPod docking station. The Smooth CE 3.0XT Compact Elliptical is a great choice for someone who needs to save space or may move their elliptical around; it weighs only 168 lbs but packs 19 programs and 24 intensity levels!
