I have one from Sears, got it a couple of years ago as a gift from my husband, its was around $ 600 or so. I put it in my guest room and lately i have been using it every night. Its so nice to be able to do 15 min here and there and i am right at home. ” Pro Form XP 115″. It has the digital screen to tell you how many calories are burned etc.

I bought one like ten years ago.  It was during my college years and it was the least expensive Pro Form from Dicks Sporting Goods.  I think with tax I ended up spending $350.00.  It’s not digital and I had to put it together myself.  The first few years it worked fine, but as it’s gotten older the belt has started to slip and I don’t have a way to tighten it.  I guess you get what you pay for.

Ok this is my second time clicking on this thread in the last couple of days thinking you were asking for an epilator.

I need to learn how to read. Sheesh.

IMO the absolute best ellipticals (that I’ve tried) are Precor and LifeFitness, but both of those are very expensive. If I had the money, I would definitely have shelled out for one. But since I couldnt afford either of those lovely machines, I did some internet research and ended up getting a Lifecore Fitness one. I think it was around $800. It is a little less sturdy and little less comfortable to use than the Precor or LifeFitness, but it does the job. I tried out other brands, but they felt cheap, or the stride was way too short, or they were jerky and hard to use. Overall I recommend it. I’ve had mine since October and other than some squeaking, I havent had any issues with it.

Oh and I recommend you NOT buy one online if it requires assembly. Mine was extremely confusing to set up and I ended up paying the store I bought it from an extra $50 to come out to my house and set it up for me.
