About Us


There are many factors that go into choosing the best elliptical trainer for you and your workout needs, and navigating the options can be a difficult task. Our goal is to do all of the heavy lifting for you by reviewing today’s most popular elliptical trainers. We’ve developed a comprehensive database of unbiased elliptical reviews so you can make an informed purchase decision.


Ellipticalreviews.com all began when we realized it was difficult to get an unbiased review of an elliptical trainer that was both complete and accurate. We wanted a simple place to find honest reviews that were actually helpful in trying to make a decision. Because we know purchasing workout equipment can be difficult and overwhelming, our goal is to simply make that process not only easier, but also fun, with complete reviews and helpful information.


We pride ourselves in knowing this is the place to find the best in honest and unbiased reviews, and who doesn’t want honesty when there are so many brands and variations of elliptical trainers on the market? Ellipticalreviews.com does just that; we sincerely hope that our reviews will provide you with the information you need to choose the best elliptical trainer. If one brand is known for an operating system that’s noisier than an airplane taking off, we’ll tell you. If there’s an elliptical trainer that’s known for its less than acceptable customer service and warranty offer, we’ll tell you that, too. We’ll tell you everything you need to know about elliptical trainers, period.


In addition to complete and honest reviews, we also feature informative articles just for you, with up-to-date information on elliptical trainers and other health related topics. Our blog page features even more information with postings on helpful tips and tricks for getting the best workout experience out of your elliptical trainer, and ways to improve your overall fitness.
