Which Elliptical should i get?

I am looking at buying me an elliptical. But with so many to choose from, it's hard to pick out the right one. I am going to have to get one at Sears. I guess theirs is the best for the price. I cannot get a big one because i have other exercise machines and have no more room for a very large machine. Also my ceiling is low. I notice there is so many to choose from. some have the turning wheel in front, and some is in the back. Should i get one with the wheel in front or back? And what is the difference with the wheel in the front or back? I do want one that is sturdy.

  • If you go to Dick's they have them set up and you can try them out plus talk to their sales people about them. Then you could find out what you are looking for and what you might want. You could even then, try Craigslist.

  • The ones that have adjustable strides are best, IMO.
