What to consider when shopping for an elliptical machine:

Elliptical Users:

If everyone was the same size, choosing an elliptical would be a little easier. However, if you are a petite 5’ 1″, you certainly aren’t going to want to purchase the same machine as an individual who stands a towering 6’ 5″. Because of this, it is important to test equipment before you make a commitment. At both of our locations, our fitness professionals at Concepts in Fitness can help you find the elliptical machine that is right for you. Only top quality machines, such as the ones you will find at our stores, combine incline or stride length to fit different size users, which is an important feature if there will be multiple users.

Machine Quality:

elliptical machines are going to be home versions of the best brands found in gyms. Check out our selections that include some of the best brands in the business:

  • Matrix Fitness
  • Octane Fitness
  • LifeFitness
  • Precor
  • Horizon

Incline Options:

Our elite elliptical machines offer incline options that increase the effectiveness of your workout by adding intensity to your leg movements. Without incline options, moving faster is the only way to increase your work capacity.

Space:

Your available space plays a huge piece in selecting the right elliptical for your needs. Bring in measurements of your available space and our staff of knowledgeable fitness professionals will ensure you are fitted with a machine that will operate efficiently and fit perfectly in your available space.

Service & Warranty:

Possibly the worst mistake you can make is investing in an elliptical machine that doesn’t come with service or warranty options. All of our fitness equipment comes with warranties on frame, parts, and labor. At Concepts in Fitness, we believe that a product is only as good as the company that stands behind it! Routine maintenance and 1:1 service from our knowledgeable staff ensures your investment stays in tip-top condition.
