My wife and I have owned the Sole Elliptical E25 machine for almost three months now. It continues to perform as well now as it did the day we bought and set it up. Like most other models, the Sole E25 provides a long, 20" stride. However, unlike the others, this machine is built on a frame that is almost a foot shorter than others. This was especially noticeable when at the store and we could see them side-by-side. This shorter frame allows us to put it in a more confined space than we would normally do. The Sole E25 also provides 16 different resistance levels, which should be enough for you to get a wide range of workouts. The display is smaller than others, but still large enough to give the necessary feedback. Other nice features include the ability to program your own workout routine (two separate users can each have their own routine), and built-in speakers with a plug-in for your MP3 or IPOD.
