I love my Activcycle Motorized Pedal Exerciser !!! I have filled out so many forms on it, though. I have MS and it has used alot of muscles I no longer can. It has really helped my circulation.

My husband loves this. Did not know we could put it on the table and use for arms also. It is exactly what we wanted for a tremendous savings as compared to other sites. No assembly assembly, except for foot straps on pedals. Took it out of the box and started using it.

Had to buy a little 240v transformer, but I knew this. Good machine, can exercise my replacement knee and knee awaiting replacement without my weight on them. Exercise has helped the circulation in my legs which was a big problem with water retention. Much better than going to the gym as no problem of getting ready is involved and 2 short sessions a day are better for the circulation than one big session once a week. Highly recommended.

although we haven't used this a lot as yet because the holidays seemed to get in the way of the exercise we do believe that it is perfect for anyone that has trouble using a pedal bike for exercise. With the remote control and speed control at your fingertips even someone with infirmities can use it. It will strengthen the legs quickly.

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.

It stated we should tighten parts, but it came assembled, so we don't have a tool to do that.

I bought this for my mom who has Parkinson's. It has been a great way for her to keep bicycling and also get an upper body workout. Going to the gym and getting on a bicycle has not been easy, and this allows her to exercise in her favorite chair at home.

My doctor told me I needed to walk outside instead of on a motorized treadmill. This was very easy to put together. This unit gives you a great workout. much better than my motorized unit.

Takes a bit of getting used to but, once you have the feel of it you get a great work out. More so then the traditional motorized treadmill. It's well worth a try,,,,,

After hours of assembly (don't use the "tools" in the box) I turned on the machine only for the resistance 1 setting to feel like 10. If I turned up the resistance it got easier, but then I heard clicking in the resistance motor. I called the service # and they sent me a new motor in a brown envelope with no instructions. Though self explanatory I installed blind, turned on the machine, and found that it was easier to use at resistance 1 (I'm am in shape 180 lb man), impossible at 3....then I heard a snap. The new resistance motor snapped again. So, now I have a 3rd one on the way in the mail...and now a service tech scheduled to install it. "A" for service, "F" for out of the box plug and play. It's been almost 2 months and wished I didn't cancel my gym membership the week it arrived (in a THOUSAND PIECES).

i thought it would be really cheesy, but it's actually a pretty good exercise machine. much more difficult than i expected. a motor isn't needed because of the steep slope, gravity forces you to keep walking fast. it's difficult though, so maybe not suitable for elderly who just want a gentle walking pace.

Purchased this exerciser for my mother-ni-law to use after her second knee replacement. She loves it. She is 86 and can move it around easily. Very easy to use. Keeps her from getting stiff from sitting too long. Same type used in the rehab center she attended after her surgery. Her neighbor (also 86) ordered one when she saw how easy and beneficial the Motorized Exerciser was for her. We saved at least $70 by using Overstock.com instead of other catalogue advertisers. Thank You

Unfortunately we had a bad experience with this product. The product was delivered and laid in our driveway vertical rather than flat which may have been the cause of the issue. My husband assembled it and when he plugged it in the machine sparked and gave him a electrical shock and then smoke came out of the motor. Needless to say we called customer service, who were super nice and arranged a pick up the next day from USPS. The next unfortunate event came when USPS lost the item causing me not to get my refund for weeks (and several more calls/web chats with customer service). I am still an Overstock fan but this wasn't the best experience to say the least.

I repacked & returned the Activcycle within a half hour of receiving it. Its pedals' straps didn't allow my woman's size 7 shoes to fit on them properly. Feet kept slipping out. No clip on the controls to attach to clothing so need to bend down to adjust speed/ resistance. I would have liked to clip controls onto my clothes. Cycle motor struggled to move & I only weigh 120 lbs. Needed to wedge it against object because it "walked". The mat didn't keep it in place.

I waited a couple months before writing a review so I can give it some time to love or hate it. I much prefer this treadmill over my last Proform (which I liked so much I got another). My last Proform lasted me 6 years and was still in great shape when I sold it. This one had minor damage to the motor housing from the shipping when it arrived but Proform was quick to deliver replacement parts and send a tech out to fix it.I have no complaints and I'm happy to know that my Proform stood behind their product. The track has excellent shock absorbers and I feel safe and comfortable running on it. It is very high off the ground though so make sure you put it in a high ceiling room. The features are fun but I try to set them and forget them so I don't spend my entire workout tinkering. I really love it!!!

Since there are no other reviews for this treadmill yet, I thought I should throw in my two cents to help anyone who may be thinking of purchasing. I've owned the ProGear 350 for a few days and am so far very happy with it. I'm a slender woman with mild arthritis and was able to assemble it on my own with little difficulty. The written instructions are sort of convoluted, so for me it was easier to toss them aside and just look at the pieces and figure it out -- very straightforward. The treadmill works great and the motor is quiet. I bought this particular model after looking at many options for these reasons: 1) The price (I paid under $300 on Black Friday and this included the 3-year protection plan); 2) The size of the belt (about the longest/widest I could find for the price point -- you can take long strides without falling off); 3) The footprint when folded up (easy to fold and is compact, so takes up little space in my apartment and can be rolled away into a closet). Like I said, I'm thrilled with it so far, but of course if anything should go wrong I'm glad I have the protection plan to back me up!

This is more of a review for Paradigm (the manufacturer) than anything. I ordered this treadmill from Overstock. I was hesitant to order something like this online but the warranty is what made me pull the trigger and do it. I received it in a week. I had a big strong friend to help me move this package into my home and he ended up having it unboxed and put together in less than 15 minutes. Very simple to set up, I just didn't have the physical strength myself. Turned the treadmill on and in exactly 15 seconds, I received an E2 error (which is a speed sensor error) and the motor shut itself off. I read the manual to see if this was something I could fix myself. I took the motor cover off to see if the speed sensor was loose. Everything looked fine. I called Paradigm that same day and explained my situation. The gentleman said he would send me a new sensor. Now I have to wait another week to try out my new treadmill. I received my sensor. Very easy to replace. I turned the treamill on, and, once again in exactly 15 seconds I received an E2 error. Again I called Paradigm. The gentleman said something must be wrong with the treadmill itself. He apologized and said that I could return the product to Overstock. I asked him about replacing the treadmill under the warranty. He said yes, I could do that. He would process the order for the replacement treadmill and once I received it, I was to pack up the old treadmill, affix the return label he would provide, call Fed-Ex ground to schedule a pickup and the return shipping would be on them. I was thankful for the warranty but hated the hassle of having to pack everything back up. My big strong friend came back to my rescue. It was two weeks from the time I requested a new treadmill until I received it. Brought the new one home, set it up, turned it on and held my breath. After 15 seconds it was still working! Yea! I love the treadmill itself, especially the controls on the handles. It is fairly quiet for this type of equipment and is not as big and bulky as most. I'm 5'3" and the belt width and length are perfect for me. I have shorter arms and the handle height is perfect as well. Easy to hold onto the handles if needed. It did take several tries to finally get someone at Paradigm, but once I did they were easy to work with. Like I said, if you get a treadmill that works from the beginning, I think you'll be pleased.

The treadmill arrived with one cracked cover next to the belt but Overstock arranged for manufacturer replacement so this was solved within a short period. At first I was very jazzed with the treadmill, the motor was quiet, the desk large and it is easily possible to do many routine tasks and type while walking at about 1 mph. When not walking it's a good height for stand-up work as well. The desktop is large, holding a 23" auxiliary screen, a 15" laptop, 10" tablet with its stand and a phone with room to spare. A minor issue is that the drink holder is at the very back of the large desktop. I cannot reach it without dismounting from the treadmill and walking around. Additionally, after about three months the bed of the treadmill has started to make creaky noises. Not harmful, but annoying. Of real concern is the short bed on this treadmill. At 5'6" I am not exceptionally tall however if I increase the speed to about two miles per hour for a little bit of real walking, say when watching a video the following thing there is a risk of falling due to the short bed combined with misplaced controls. The sensors and controls on the side bars are placed about a foot back from where you stand and walk when computing. When you put your hands on the sensors and use those controls you are very near the back of the short bed. With a normal walking stride your shoe can easily catch the back roller and WHOMP - you are suddenly off the treadmill and on the floor behind it. Very exciting, but not in a good way! I recommend avoiding this model until the manufacturer either changes the placement of the side-bar controls and sensors or lengthens the bed.
