There are many different types of elliptical trainers as well as brand names and options that are available when choosing an elliptical machine. There are home grade elliptical trainers or commercial grade elliptical trainers. What are the advantages of purchasing commercial elliptical machines vs. home elliptical machines? Well the most obvious reason to choose a commercial grade elliptical trainer is the fact that they are built more durable to handle allot of use. They have a commercial grade construction and the components to it are more durable. Commercial elliptical machines are also a great deal more expensive than your home grade elliptical trainer. The home grade elliptical is usually a basic machine and has just a few of the options that a commercial elliptical machine has to offer. It is less expensive, only because of the added durability and options that are offered on a commercial elliptical machine.
