We have to believe that when Gold's Gym put an elliptical for $2K that's its either a typo or a joke. Either way, avoid this elliptical like the plague.
Gold's Gym is know for producing cheap, low cost ellipticals. We would never recommend that you purchase one of these machines. Either spend more money and buy something from Proform or NordicTrack or join a gym for $20 per month.
