Star Trac Elliptical Review Index
General Information:Star Trac was started by the original designers of the Lifecycle stationary cycle. Their treadmills are popular in clubs. Don't confuse the Star Trac line with their new consumer ST Fitness line. With the decline in the retail specialty fitness base, a new line from Star Trac is not a very smart move right now. Concentrate on the club line with Star Trac and you won't be disappointed.
Manufacturing Philosophy:Star Trac puts very high quality electronics in their machines and then lets the rest fall into place. At full retail price, it is so-so deal for the price. With the big discounts we saw online and in the Wall Street Journal last year, Star Tracs made quite a bit of sense if you were considering a $4000 to $5000 home treadmill.
Company Outlook : Star Trac is big in the club market because they are a value alternative and cheaper products will always sell well. We would expect them to be around for product support for a long time.
