5.0 / 5.0

Sole Fitness is primarily known for their high quality, yet affordable treadmills and ellipticals. They are one of the fastest growing companies on the market, and if they keep up the good work, eventually they may even surpass NordicTrack as the largest fitness equipment retailer. Sole owes much of their success to hotels, who love the sturdy machines and the great warranties that are included.

If you are looking for an elliptical that is designed efficiently and built well, then look no further. Sole designs their exercise equipment to function well and have a simple yet sleek style. If you are hoping for a machine with all of the bells and whistles (i.e. iFit capabilities and an abundance of pre programmed workouts) then you may want to go with a brand that is more well known for their features. But for the average person just looking for a sturdy machine, you can’t go wrong with a Sole.

Some of the lower end Sole machines are offered exclusively at Sears, but you are much better off buying directly from the company online to get the best deals. The warranties offered on equipment put out by Sole surpass most of the fitness industry. Even their cheapest elliptical machine has a lifetime warranty on the frame, a 3 year warranty on parts and electronics, and a 1 year warranty on labor.

The bottom line is that if hotels around the world have been satisfied with the Sole brand, where they are used and abused by different users on a daily basis, then you will probably be extremely happy with the quality and functions that Sole can deliver in your new piece of home exercise equipment.

To check out all of the new machines that Sole has to offer, visit the official company store for special discount pricing and free shipping and be sure to read my elliptical reviews below if you are trying to decide which model will be the best for you.

Our latest Sole elliptical reviews found 7 models to choose from: the E25, E35, E55, E95, E95s and top of the line Sole E98, as well as the new SC200 Stepper, a half elliptical, half stepping machine. All models offer heavy flywheels, from 20 lbs. and up. Put simply, the heavier the flywheel, the smoother and quieter your workout will be. They all also have incline capability and articulating pedals, easing stress on the joints while you work out.

In 2016 Sole Fitness redesigned some of their ellipticals, incorporating Bluetooth technology for those who want to track their workouts and sync them with popular fitness apps. This is a welcome change as Sole has been lacking in this area. Late in the year they introduced the Sole Fitness Striders: ST300 and ST600, with adjustable strides from 18″ all the way up to 26″.

Choosing one model over another is simply a matter of deciding what your budget is and what features you want/need. In most cases you’re going to be happier with a more expensive machine, simply because they offer more, i.e. a heavier flywheel (quieter), more resistance/programs, better warranty, etc. The Sole E35 and E95 have won a number of Best Buy awards. The E55 is more compact so if space is an issue for you that might be the way to go.

The bottom line here is that you really can’t go wrong with a Sole elliptical. They make solid machines, have a very good reputation in the industry and their warranties as well as their customer service are better than most other exercise equipment companies.
