The Stridetrainer 310 is the lowest priced unit in a low cost line of ellipticals under the Gold’s Gym brand.

The Schwinn A40 is the proverbial turd of the elliptical market. If you want a Schwinn buy a 430 or 470 but we would recommend that you buy something from Horizon, Proform or NordicTrack.

Runner Ups

Winner

True Fitness M30

The M30 is True’s introductory elliptical model. While not cheap, the quality of the machine is outstanding.

2ND

Yowza Islamorada

While the Islamorada has some nice features, it's just priced too high for me to recommend when you start to get into the True M series price range.

3RD

Winner

True PS300

The PS 300 gives you great quality in a compact package.

2ND

Star Trac S-CTx

The Star Trac S-CTx is the light commercial intro model for Star Trac's elliptical lineup. It's a decent machine but a poor value at $4K. We would recommend that you look at product offerings from Precor, True and Lifefitness in this price range.

NordicTrack Freestride FS7i

Best Compact Elliptical

Runner Ups

Winner

True M50

OThe M50 gives you a few features over the M30 like multi position handels. If you feel the you need features then spend the money. True is not a mass market brand and they don’t try to be. They want to make the best equipment on the market.

Editor's Note: It is our policy of intentionally erring on the side of caution concerning reliability ratings so a key component in the rating still will be a heavy factor in the final score and these ratings were given with caution in mind. Once an treadmill wins a best buy in its price range, it is ineligible for a best buy rating in another category.
