Where to rent an Elliptical Machine in NYC?

Where can a person rent an elliptical exercise machine (e.g. Precor) in New York City? I'm interested in getting a high quality elliptical machine for home use, but I'm concerned about the cost and my relative lack of self-motivation. I don't want to spend $2000+ on a machine that I use five times then ignore. I'd rather rent for a while until I'm sure it works for me. I need something at home -- gym membership is not an option. Is there any company that will rent me an elliptical machine by the month, and deliver to my apartment in Manhattan?

These people do home fitness equipment rentals. No personal experience with them. The rental contact name has a 212 area code too. They have a bunch of ellipticals.

dudeman, I wanted to ask you privately to let me know how you make out - this sounds like a great idea to me and I may want to follow suit - but you don't have an email listed.

Followup: I phoned Gym Source (barnone's reference) and got a price quote from their representative:

$100 for delivery
$495/month for rental
$100 for pickup

Three months rental at their rates would buy me a decent home quality elliptical. Five months rental would buy me a used Precor. So unfortunately it's not economical.
