I purchased this elliptical to get back into shape. I assembled the elliptical, which was a little bit more than I expected but it came together well. I used it for awhile but I haven't been on it as my knee has prevented me from doing so. If you have problems with assembling things I would look elsewhere, otherwise mine hasn't caused me any problems.
This was a decent purchase. I wasn't too impressed but I wasn't disappointed either. I think reading the reviews prior to purchase really prepared my mind for what was to come. It's been about six months now and it's still working. It is more of a stepper that requires a ridiculous amount of energy and strength to operate but I just do what I can. Overall, Im satisfied. Warning: If you are a bigger person this may not work too well for you because my husband who is 6" and weighs around 200lbs finds that the machine tilts a bit with rigorous motion.
Well, it certainly will give you a workout. Unfortunately the position is all wrong for me. I'm 5'7". It feels like my feet are pointed sharply forward and downhill (yes, I assembled it correctly) and the arm rails jerk my whole body forward way to far. It's a very awkward and uncomfortable position and hell on the knees.
I love this elliptical! I was never really into working out before but this helps me stay on track. I can do it in the convenience of my own home and not worry about a thing. I do wish the product were a little more sturdier and it may be but I've only tried it out on my carpet. I feel like a get a good workout in on this elliptical. Great product for the price. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on something that I would never use but I use this product a lot! The reviews on Overstock helped make my purchase easier. Would recommend this product to anyone! :)
Couldn't be happier, very easy on my beat up knees, not like the treadmill at all! received it in three days and it was very simple to put together, all of the parts and tools were included. Would definitely recommend this to anyone with old tired knees.
Been with overstock for every and have bought a lot of product from you guys over the year and only had one thing go worry and that was taken care of so fast I have nothing to say bad about the .com and I would not go to any other .com to get my for shopping . So all that I can say About Your .com And the people that you have working for is to keep up good work keep up the good work thank you.
If you are looking for a low cost elliptical with a small footprint, this is the elliptical for you. It was pretty easy to put together even though the instructions were fair. The most challenging part is to not get confused by the left pedal hardware that tightens in the opposite direction (compared to traditional threaded hardware). It is clearly marked, just pay attention. Once assembled, it is really easy to move around. It is a great addition to my home gym. The one con that stands out in my mind is the screen on the machine is difficult to read because it sits down by the body of the elliptical.
This is one of the least expensive ellipticals I found and I am very pleased! The quality for exercising is decent, especially for the price. It operates smoothly and fairly quietly. Adjustment is simple. The computer was basic and easy to use. But what I was amazed with was the incredible organization of the assembly instructions. I am a total do-it-yourselfer and this was, hands down, the clearest and easiest to follow set of assembly directions. All necessary tools were included and the hardware was sorted and packaged by assembly step. My 11 year-old daughter and I put it together while my wife was in the shower. It was that easy!
