Quality treadmill, easy instructions to put together, varies speed levels from 0.04 to 4 miles per hour. Keeps track of exercise time, calories burned. Has magnetic safety feature which you clip onto your clothing, which stops the treadmill motion when the magnet is pulled away from its metal slot, in case of falling , slipping. Highly recommend this product.

This stepper is an excellent workout while watching TV. The rubber bands are a waste of time, they just don't seem to blend with the stepping motion. I just the bands off and use 3pound weights instead which feels more natural with the stepping motion, plus you get a better workout!! The stepping motion is just like the side to side motion of walking up a flight of stairs. I really liked this at first, however I have a bad knee making it worsen due to the side to side motion! So sadly, I can no longer use this wonderful stepping machine. Would however highly recommend this for a great workout if you do not have a bad knee.

This is a Powerful little stepper. I could not believe the great work out I got from this unit. The twisting motion is another added bonus to an effective workout and the resistance bands are a plus as well,. It took only a few seconds to assemble which was very easy to do which for me was another added bonus since I am easily intimidated to putting anything together. I burned about 300 calories in 45 minutes which I plan to increase because I need to get accostumed to the feel of the unit. Really worth the little amount of money and it's great on saving space. I also purchaed the Body By Jake heart rate monitor that I returned because it totally sucked!!! I got the Polar heart rate monitor instead so I can get a heart rate read with this unit since it it's the only thing it dosen't do. Happy Fitness to all!RMC

I wanted a simple, cheap machine to exercise on. I like the rowing motion because it works a lot of body parts and is low impact. This device fills the bill nicely. It is compact and low to the floor. Getting down on the seat can be a challenge if you have any joint issues. I might add some casters to the end so I can tip it up and roll it if I need to move it, but it really has a pretty small footprint so it's not hard to leave it available all the time. Overall, I think this a good value for the money. Thumbs up!

It was fairly easy to assemble and seems solid. The electronics are very simple, but seem to do what is promised. Adjustment of the resistance seems to work well enough. However, when adjusted to the maximum separation between the seat and the peddles, I am far from being able to straighten my legs at the farthest point of peddle motion. I have an inseam of 29 inches, which is pretty short, so this indicates that it will have the same problem for most adults. The result is a cramped situation when using the bike.

This is such an awesome purchase. It allows me to study while still getting in some exercise after 8 hours of class. I feel like my productivity has increased so much already and will continue to over time. The desktop is the perfect size for my laptop (17") and iPad (for studying tunes, of course). Assembly was pretty easy, just took me a little time to hold the table in place enough to get the screws in so it wouldn't fall on my head. There were some minor blemishes from shipping, but all in all I was very impressed for how well it arrived. I look forward to continuing to use this product. The desk height is sufficient enough for me so that I can walk if I want to, or just make it a traditional standing desk without the treadmill in motion (I'm 6'0" tall, for reference). Hope someone finds this useful - these are a great investment for students and professionals alike!

This mini peddler is the best one I have used. It seems more powerful and smoother. I have arthritis and need the exercise. I would definatly recommend it. It wouldn't give you a physical workout but for someone who need motion in their arms and legs it's great!

I love this thing. It's quiet enough so I can do my exercising while my son is napping in my very small house, and I can even have the TV on at a volume where I can hear it over the machine (which is really very quiet), without bothering him. I've been using this stepper every day since it arrived (it was easy to assemble), for anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes at a go. And here's where we hit a snag: the thing gets VERY HOT where the parts move. This isn't a problem if you don't touch them, except for one thing: the cable that acts as the most important part of the stepping motion causes a little friction on the factory bolts where it meets the steps. After two weeks or so of regular use, one of those bolts clean snapped off. So that's the caveat, and it sounds like this thing must be a real piece of junk. But the good news is it was easy to fix with a 1/4-inch bolt and a locking nut. Just to be on the safe side, I also contacted the manufacturer, and they sent me two new replacement bolts and nuts. So if the heat and friction are a problem again (so far, no additional problems at all, by the way, and no more snapped bolts), I have a few replacement pieces. Sum up: I definitely recommend this if you want a light-weight, quiet piece of equipment that makes it easy to commit to regular aerobic, calorie-burning exercise... but buy a few 1/4-inch bolts and locking nuts before you get too into it. :)

I'm a caregiver for two family members and over the last few years my world has become challenged in a variety of ways. The opportunity to get out and walk was not really possible anymore and, frankly, the Jane Fonda type exercise programs just seem a bit much at my age, approaching sixty. I knew I needed to do something that was cardio, but I wanted something that gave a bit of strength training as well. After doing some research I narrowed it down to an exercise machine. After more research I settled on a rowing machine. It offered a low impact workout for both my legs and my upper body. I liked this model which was the least expensive. There weren't many reviews, but those I found seemed positive with reasonable expectations. I ordered the machine on a Wednesday, it was delivered by UPS the following Wednesday. The box it came in seemed in good shape and as the bits and pieces came out of the packaging, I was pleased to see it all looked undamaged. I was stunned to see a manual included. In English. Parts were clearly labeled. So, first, I did an inventory. It was disconcerting to see some of the bolts, washers, etc., were short of the stated number. Not to worry. What I discovered were some of the bits and pieces were already attached. It took me a couple of hours, by myself, to assemble the rower. The instructions were clear, well marked with various diagrams and schematics. There is even health information included for target heart rates, etc., for various age groups. And the machine itself is easily handled by me. Not too big or bulky for moving about the house. Oh. And actually using the machine? Well, I set it on the lowest setting and was pleased to feel a beginner level amount of resistance. Also, the action was smooth and comfortable for me, five feet nine inches in height. First, my legs and then my arms were engaged in the rowing motion. I am very pleased with both Stamina InMotion for their product and Overstock.com for offering it at such a reasonable price with a reasonably fast (and free) delivery.

Very impressed with the quality of the machine. Durable construction with metal encasement; can be moved with attached hand grip but individual must be able to lift ten pounds. Dual application for upper body and arm rotation as well as leg rotation workouts, with simple adjustments to pedals. Can be placed on floor for lower leg activity, and also on counter/table surface for arm acitivity. Adjustable tension for increased resistance; adjustable speed for passive workout routine. Ideal home exercise equipment for individuals unable to do active movement, such as those with limited range of motion, stroke impairment, incapacity for active ambulation, lower limb DVT (deep vein thrombosis), etc. Individual should be assisted with this equipment during its use.

I actually bought this product from a different place, but for much higher price, so I am replacing it with this one. The product came in a box that was all taped on the outside with a clear tape - it looked like it was open before, although the sales associate assured me that it was not . The machine was packed properly and neatly. All included accessories were there and also packed properly. As I was setting it up, I noticed that one of the stretch bands was all muffled almost like a dog chewed on it. Then the two stretch bands were different in length, which made it kind a difficult in the beginning to balance it, but then I got use to it. Other than that, the product is very compact, small, but sturdy. The rubber on the pedals make it a pleasure to be on, but you have to wear snickers or running shoes (as noted in the manual), otherwise it will hurt your toes. The pedals are also well tightened, so they provide you with a good push pressure, which we all know makes you burn calories effectively. Yes, you break a sweat after only about 20 30 pushes ( and it is difficult for me to break a sweat .). The bands are great way to keep a balance while you are exercising your upper body. Not sure how effective it will be to burn belly fat since there is no side motion on this model, but definitely felt well toned, after only about 100 pushes. This is really my very first exercise machine ever, so I cant compare it to no other one, but keeping in mind that I am very, very lazy when it comes to exercises, this is the perfect no more excuses to not exercise! for me. Even if it just get me to start liking exercising, it is still worth the money. I would definitely recommend it to people like me and also those who do not have the space for a treadmill in the house. Overall good product.

I've been using stepping machines at home for 20+ years, and I've been through a bunch of them. This one is the best so far. It's compact and light weight enough to handle easily. It has great tension, and terrific range of motion. You can really work up a good heart rate on this piece of equipment. I'm very pleased with it.

Doesn't take up a lot of space and is light enough for me to move alone. Smooth motion, but short stride. I've used it consistently for a month now with no problem. Overall, it appears to be exactly what I was looking for - something to keep me off the couch in bad winter weather.

I bought this based upon the value for the money. It is sturdy, with no wobbling even with fast peddling. I've heard some complaints about the seat being uncomfortable but so far after 15 minutes, its still ok. It was easily assembled by my husband in less than 45 minutes. On Amazon.com there were alot of complaints about missing or broken parts. We experienced none of that. The box arrived intact as well as the entire contents. The screen is easy to program and read and the pedals are comfortable with a smooth motion. I can't complain at all. So far, so good! Appears to be a great value for a basic recumbent exercise bike!

Very sturdy. Smooth motion. Doesn't feel tippy at all. Was worried about getting on/off of the machine but it is very sturdy. Accommodates my 5ft5 180# frame and my hubbys 6ft1 225# just perfect!

I bought this machine because I had a car accident that wrecked my right leg. I need to get my range of motion back. Since there is such a difference in my legs I'm going to tie wrap it to a board that my chair can sit on and strap my right foot on. It really stretches out that bad leg. With two good legs it would work fine as it came out of the box.

As mentioned, range of motion is limited due to size. Smooth action, decent size, good for an apartment. Not really portable due to weight. Quality machine for light duty workout.

I like the stepper ,small and compact but made sturdy. Use it every day . Wish it had more of a twist motion to it. This is more like a small stepper.

Looks durable. The bands was useless. It's really hard to do the excercise because it doesn't feel natural with the twisting. I have to hold on to something while exercising as it keeps throwing me off balance. I wished I bought the one that doesn't have the twisting motion.
