Editor’s note: This is the second in a seven-part series on how to find the best high-end fitness equipment for your home gym. Featured today are elliptical machine reviews.

Advertisers are constantly telling people where to find the cheapest merchandise and best deals. When it comes to exercise equipment, though, it really pays off to spend some extra dollars. The more you like the exercise equipment that’s in your home gym, the more likely you are to use it.

With so many options out there, it can be confusing to know what type of exercise equipment to purchase. Don’t assume that just because you see a name brand in a public gym that is the best choice for your home. Club brands are selected for durability because they can be in use for 10-16 hours a day. You’re not going to get the smoothest rides, runs or lifts, or most comfortable seats on machines that are built to sustain stress in a commercial gym.

To find the best high-end fitness equipment for your home gym in Arizona, including top of the line elliptical machines, turn to the pros at At Home Fitness. They have elliptical machines that are used by everyone from professional athletes to the average couple next door. If you want the cream of the crop for high-end elliptical machines, the Bentley or Louis Vuitton if you will, here are three great choices at different top of the line price points from $2,400-$5,100 and above:
