Fuel Fitness seemed to appear on the cardiovascular equipment fitness
scene as a quiet contender for the title of “best quality elliptical machine under $ 1,000.”
Fuel Fitness elliptical machines are sold through their online website, fuelfitnessusa.com, and through Dick’s Sporting Goods stores nationwide.

Fuel Fitness knows quality products and is
committed to manufacturing elliptical machines at
a customer-pleasing price point. In fact, Fuel Fitness offers a surprisingly high number of user features and options when compared to their competition at their target price point.

Although Fuel Fitness elliptical machines are considered below average when compared to the
upper end of elliptical manufacturers, they do produce a high quality, affordable elliptical machine.

Fuel Fitness currently offers only a couple of elliptical machine models and they are all priced below $ 1,000.00. This being said, Fuel Fitness offers a lower-end elliptical machine that includes several user features. For example, Fuel Fitness elliptical machines include pre-set workouts, one-touch controls for resistance, and hand-grip pulse monitors. Their more expensive elliptical machine also include a heart rate monitor that allows your heart to communicate with the elliptical machine. In other words, you can program in a specific heart rate and the elliptical machine will automatically adjust the resistance to maintain that specific heart rate.

Overall, Fuel Fitness offers a reasonable series of elliptical machines that are targeted towards the price-conscious individual. In addition, within this price point for elliptical machines, Fuel Fitness offers a better than average warranty.
