We give Smooth credit for changing the way business is done online, one of the pioneers in developing the online business of selling treadmills and ellipticals. They are good quality machines but we believe more money is thrown into marketing the product then developing it. this is evident when you look at the entire lineup and they look like they come from different brands. We would suggest looking at the AFG brand in the same price point since you get allot more out of it for the price.

Sole fitness is one of the strongest brands in the market today, the only thing is the strength is not in the product, but in the name. Sole has done a great job marketing itself and creating the demand that it has. You do however pay for that demand, Sole spends millions of dollars a year to have the presence that it has. the only thing is you can get the same machines in other brands for less :(. If you are even considering purchasing a machine in this price point, we STRONGLY suggest taking a look at the AFG fitness brand.
