Best Compact Elliptical: Bowflex Max Total 16
Looking for an elliptical that won't take over your entire living room? Then check out the Bowflex Max Total 16 ($2,799). At 50 inches long and 31 inches wide, this Bowflex elliptical takes up a smaller footprint than your typical machine while providing 20 resistance levels and a connected touchscreen with a one-year membership to the JRNY workout platform. One parent who got this machine and rated it five stars on Bowflex's site said, "We can all get a good workout even though we are at different levels of activity. The machine is very sturdy, like something you'd use at the gym."
