    Pros: Easy fold up. Good workout.
    Cons: Inaccurate monitor, quit working almost after purchase.

    Summary: I have used the Gazelle Freestyle Elite on and off for a year. I like the 3 settings but am not sure if it would be enough resistance for a really fit person. It folds up easy and has a nice cup holder and even room for the remote! It is sturdy and ... read more

    Cons: Can't use for extreme exercising.

    Summary: UPDATE (10-25-2008)< b>My Gazelle finally died. The front bar has bent, not a lot, but enough over the years that the right foot pedal hits the right stabilizer bar. For nearly 3 years of use, I can't complain. I'm going to buy another one at ... read more

    Pros: No impact. Compact space requirement. Xlnt customer service. Great for all fitness levels!
    Cons: I really can't think of any!

    Pros: Easy to use, stores easily.
    Cons: Poorly built. Not a total workout

    Cons: Wretched computer and heart monitor; unit is cumbersome to move around

    Pros: Tony Little is making money. Probably better than not exercising at all.
    Cons: Offensively noisy. Inferior quality. Inhibits arm movement. Overpriced for materials and build involved.

    Pros: Easy to use; gentle!
    Cons: Noisy!!!

    Summary: I find that it's very easy to do a quick 30 minutes a day. Unfortunately my 18 month old gazelle is so noisy that I can only use it for 30 minutes without going crazy. I have oiled it and it has not help. I do like that I can get a mile done in no ... read more
