Gazelle is a fitness equipment line designed by Tony Little, and is manufactured and distributed by the company Fitness Quest. The Gazelle Edge and Gazelle Freestyle are elliptical trainers, which provide cardiovascular exercise that is low resistance and easy on the joints. The Edge is the most basic Gazelle elliptical machine, which is reflected in its low price. The Freestyle is a bit more advanced and more expensive, with added features and more solid construction. The Freetsyle also comes in a Sprintmaster Elite model, which is the most expensive and has the most features of any Gazelle elliptical trainer.

Features

All three Gazelle models feature dual-action split suspension, a patented technology that allows individuals to vary their speed on the machines from a slow walk to a sprint. The Gazelle Edge has a computer monitor that measures approximate calories burnt, time, distance and speed, but it does not feature a heart pulse monitor, which the Freestyle models have in addition to all of the features of the Edge. While the Edge is constructed of 1 1/2 inch gauge steel, the Freestyle is made of 2 1/4 inch gauge steel, making it more structurally sound. The Freestyle Sprintmaster Elite model differs from the Edge and the basic Freestyle in that it has adjustable pistons allowing for different levels of resistance.

Warranty

According to FitnessQuest.com, the Gazelle Edge and Freestyle include 90-day warranties, while the Freestyle Sprintmaster Elite comes with a one-year warranty.

Problems

All of the Gazelle elliptical machine models are designed to fold up for easy storage. However, according to Exercise-Equipment-Review.com, many customers complain about their bulkiness. Gazelle elliptical trainers are considered hard to move around, and are difficult to fit under beds or in normal-sized closets.
