Re:Choosing a Cross Trainer
I have an Elite cross trainer - fantastic brand. One of the top cross trainers in the states, but you can buy them from Fitness Superstores in the UK.
You can use it as a cross trainer, or it'll go to such a high incline that it switches to more of a stepping motion.
They're good pieces of kit, I wouldn't use any other - although I did consider an Octane (they're pretty good, but take up too much room for my gym).. The Elite is quite a heavy duty cross trainer, semi commercial grade - so it feels robust.
If I think of any other good ones - that are well priced i'll post again :)
