Expert Reviews

“The Stride Trainer 380 Elliptical has a maximum user weight of 250 pounds, however I would not trust it with anyone near that weight.” – Treadmill Sensei

“the machine doesn’t seem to provide good value; many customers report that the Gold’s Gym 380 is just too cheaply made.” –

User Reviews

“the quality of the stride trainer and its associated instruction book is of the highest order. (Although a little de-burring inside the static handles where the end plates are welded on would have made this machine perfect). I hope this machine was designed and built in the US, we need more of this quality.” – Gold’s Gym Customer

“Works as intended.. best if used on a non-slip surface. The momentum of you exercising forces it to slide along the floor. Cup holder arrived cracked…” – WalMart Customer


The Gold’s Gym StrideTrainer 380 elliptical’s quality is really nothing to brag about, though most people seem to be satisfied with how much they pay for it. It is an extremely cheap machine and has quality that matches it; no more, and no less. If you are anywhere near the elliptical’s weight capacity, I would suggest staying away from it and find another elliptical that can handle a higher weight. Also, one reviewer mentioned that a piece was broken before they unpacked it. So make sure you call the dealer or manufacturer to have it replaced, if it is still under warranty.

If you are interested in purchasing this elliptical, your best bet would be to buy the elliptical at Amazon, as they often have the Gold’s Gym equipment at $50 or more cheaper than at other retailers. So start there and compare all of the models.
