If you have a smaller space but want a good workout, you’re in luck: There are plenty of foldable ellipticals that save room. Nothing works up a satisfying sweat quite like a good ol’ easy-on-the-joins elliptical session. But between work, kids’ schedules and various schooling situations, going to the gym seems like a luxury of yesteryear. So maybe you’re considering investing in an at-home elliptical so you can take advantage of early mornings, quick work breaks and nap times – without the expensive monthly fee and commute time of going to a gym. (Hell, you can even have a foldable treadmill, portable sauna tent, and all of this other workout equipment at home, so there’s really nothing to miss about the gym.)

But who has the space for a giant elliptical machine in their home? (Not us, that’s for sure.) Compact and folding elliptical trainers are where it’s at if you’re going to buy an at-home elliptical. They take up less floor space and are easier to move, all without compromising features or mechanics, since they still offer full strides and a variety of resistance options. Now we just have to inspire ourselves to actually get on the elliptical.

Read on for our 10 top picks for small, space saving ellipticals.
