The Stamina In-Motion is by far the most popular of the elliptical machines, due mainly to it's low price tag this is the cheapest of all featured ellipticals. The standard model has no handles but they do supply for a few dollars more a version with static handles to help you balance.
This is a very compact elliptical machine measuring in at only 20" x 13" x 12" (50.8 cm x 33 cm x 30.5 cm) meaning you can tuck it under a desk or even in a cupboard when not in use and it's easily portable to move anywhere around your house.
There is a dial on the front so you can adjust the resistance level of the machine and using it without hand supports forces you to engage your abs and core muscles for balance giving you a great workout. The display will show you how long you worked out for, the number of strides you took and the estimated calories burned.
On the upside this is a very cheap elliptical machine, however on the down side this is a very cheap elliptical machine, you do get what you pay for with bare bones features with a very small stride length of only 6 inches (12.5 cm), only support for user weight of 250 lbs (133 kg) and only 1 year warranty.
So if you're looking for a compact, portable, budget level elliptical machine that won't break the bank and you're happy with a small stride, limited support and are not approaching the 250 lb weight limit....this is a perfect buy.
