Is this the best price?

The new Helix H1000 Touch Aerobic Lateral Trainer is the lowest priced lateral trainer from Helix for residential use. This is the first touchscreen model, and a great improvement over the previous model. A lateral trainer moves side to side, instead of front to back like a traditional elliptical. A lateral trainer can tone your core muscles, your butt plus inner and outer thighs, areas often missed by other exercise equipment.

A lateral trainer can burn fat and also give you an excellent aerobic workout. Lateral training is excellent for training athletes such as skiers, golfers, snow boarders, and tennis players. Most aerobic trainers simply work the front of the thighs (quads) and the back of the legs (hamstrings), but the Helix also simultaneously works the inner and outer thighs and glutes. Lateral trainers are low impact and easy on the knees. The H1000 has pulse grips in the handles and is Polar™ wireless compatible, to monitor your heartrate.
