Yukon International is headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. The company manufactures a wide range of strength-training and cardio products and distributes them online. Some of their best products are benches and plate racks for weightlifters.

Yukon’s elliptical trainers are very inexpensive and weigh very little. The Yukon Inertia ES3.5 weighs 115 pounds and the EZ Elliptical weighs only 90 pounds. We’re skeptical about their claimed weight capacities, which approach 300 pounds. Elliptical training involves vigorous movement that might cause instability.

Yukon has managed to make the most of little material – at least you’ll get heavy flywheels and a steel frame – but these ellipticals have a lot of weight to gain before we’ll take them seriously.
