I have seen both too. I usually don't workout that the gym unless its a group class because I prefer to work out at home. I know ellipticals come both ways but I'm not sure which has better benefits too. I didn't know it would be like high stepping or long striding.
Thats a good idea! I may have to hit up a gym to see which I like better.
Do you have an elliptical?

Agree that most gyms have rear-drives predominantly, but there are also some professional models used by gyms these days that are also front drive...
Think it comes down to the predominant motion you are after - high stepping versus long striding...etc...
Perhaps you should search for the spec's on the best brands and find something that matches most closely?
Why don't you hire something initially - that way you can try out a few models before you commit to purchasing....
