After doing a lot of research, I bought one from Smooth Fitness. I’m really happy with it!

I bought an elliptical about three years ago and really love it!  After researching quite a bit, my Fiance and I decided to invest (*ahem* splurge) on a slightly expensive one.  We thought that if we went with an inexpensive model, we would end up not using it as much as we wanted due to common frustrations with cheap ellipticals; for instance, a short, unnatural distance in the pedals that prevents you from ever hitting a comfortable, natural stride.  We figured if we invest in the best from the start, we won’t ever have a need to upgrade, which usually ends up costing more in the long run, anyway.  I don’t regret our decision, even though the price was a bit of a shock at first!

ANYWAY – just wanted to preface my recommendation with that because I am very happy with our model, but it was about $2,400.  (We paid it off interest-free over the course of two years.)

We have an Octane elliptical in the Q37c model.
