Measures 31″ wide x 76″ long x 58″ high, this NordicTrack ASR 700 Elliptical makes a perfect choice for your home gym. Good points: One of the most “entertaining” ellipticals with both fitness games and iPod compatible speakers Reasonable number of workout programs preinstalled and with the option to add additonal programs with the iFit Workout Card technology Bad points: Relatively short stride length at only 18″ Relatively low weight capacity at only 275 lbs Comments: Update (February 13/2010): The Nordictrack ASR 700 is now selling for a rarely seen closeout price of. Although there are many other choices that are more not only newer but also more sturdily built, the is an enticing enough price point for those who are looking for a starter home elliptical. If you’re looking for an elliptical that has fitness games to challenge and entertain you at the same time, the ASR 700 by Nordictrack is one possible option. However, Proform’s website usually has at least one or two ellipticals that are equipped with games as well that’s usually much better priced. Overall, a tad overpriced for my tastes.

Good points: As close to commercial quality a home treadmill is likely going to get Wider belt than most treadmills at 22″ Bad points: Home treadmill at a commercial price Limited number of extra features Warranty is weak despite the price and quality Comments: If you’ve got, spend it on a real commercial treadmill instead of the Freemotion t7.5. If this treadmill ever does go on sale for or so, I would still think real hard before putting down my hard earned money. Note that this treadmill lacks many of the extra features found in basic home treadmill models so note that you’re basically paying something that can take a lot of pounding, not for something that’s going to dazzle with the illusion of high tech wizardry.

Good points: Longest stride in the industry at 35″ Belongs to the Freemotion line of ellipticals which is Nordictrack’s home version of commercial ellipticals WireLESS heart rate monitor This elliptical works your core (ab) muscles too Bad points: More expensive than most models Though it is marketed as one of the more stable and durable models, there’s no track record for this elliptical Comments: The main feature that this elliptical has that the other ellipticals don’t is the long 35″ stride. All the other extra features such as fans, high tech display panel, music port, etc can all be found in lower priced models. The advertised benefits of a more natural arch movement and toning your ab/core muscles though beneficial, might not be worth the extra half a grand or so. Buying this elliptical is not a mistake especially if you’ve worked out previously on other elliptical machines and you’re looking for something a little more sophisticated but for the average beginner, it might be better to downgrade a little.
