This is a great machine for someone who has a small space but needs a real workout. I put it together in less than 30 minutes without any problems. I'm 5'3" and stride is perfect for me. It would have gotten 5 stars, but the computer timer calorie counter thing doesn't work. I was hesitant to purchase this type of equipment online, but this machine is a pleasant surprise!
I recently purchased this trainer and love it. It was nice and easy to put together. I love hopping on and working out while watching tv or a movie. It is generally very quiet. The only issue I have experienced is a squealing sound out of one of the feet joints. As long as I WD-40 it, there's no noise. OH. The display gadget "works", but doesn't actually work with the machine, or at least mine. I've tried playing around with it, and it never initiates timing me, or telling me my distance. But for the money, I cannot complain all that much.
My daughter's broke in 3 months! Left leg part completely split in half. Also, it left black stains all over my carpet from working out on this. We used a steam cleaner on the spot, and it DIDN'T COME OUT. Now, i have black marks all over my carpet floors. This is a very poor put together machine, and is very flimsy. Between wasting my money on it (it cannot be used now, completely broken), and the black marks, it's a nightmare. If you want something to work out on, spend a little bit more and get something better.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? My daughter's broke in 3 months, you tell me.
I love this thing! I can get a really good workout on this without it feeling like a workout. The timer is great because it tracks your time, steps, and calories. And it can work your arms as well if you lean forward and push on the handles to move the machine. It's like doing pushups standing up. It was easy to set up, and it's easy to move around. The only concern I have is that the securing pins don't really do anything except rattle around so I removed them. The gravity of the machine holds the machine secure so I haven't found the missing pins to be a problem.
I bought this trainer because I needed to get moving, yet I have very limited space in my study room. Putting it together was very simple. I am a 40+ female, not overweight, but wanted to loose some pounds in the new year, so I quickly jumped onto it. Let me tell you, as easy as it was to move, after 15 minutes I had enough the first day (and I was out of breath too) and the next day my leg muscles hurt me up and down. So I decided to increase the amount of use little by little. Within about 1 week, this thing started to creak. It made aweful LOUD noises, so much that while I looked at Netflix from my computer in front of me, I had to turn the volume all the way up and STILL didn't hear. So I had to rely on undertitles. Hubby and the dog grudgingly left the study, because the squeaky noise was unbearable. A few times my husband would grease it around the joints, after which it would quiet down for about the first 5 minutes of use. After this, same loud sounds.
Nonetheless, within a month of owning the walker, I was able to increase the time to one hour (making usually 4000 steps), where I would start sweating after 30 minutes. The next morning, no body parts would hurt. I guess my muscles slowly adapted.
But after a month of ear-piercing sounds, I called customer service at Overstock to inquire about a return (the box was long gone). They told me I would have to pack it and ship it back to them and after this they would return me a whooping $60+ something. That means, they would substract the shipping costs.
I thought, naaah, I will continue letting my hearing suffer instead of dealing with finding an appropriate big box to stuff this thing back in and send it off. I did record one of my walking sessions and intended to post it on Youtube to demonstrate how loud this thing is. Haven't done it yet, but go there and search for it by name.
Meanwhile the small digital step and time counter started acting funny (counting steps douple, triple or not at all) and some plastic covers started falling off. One day one of the steps felt as if it was about half an inch lower than the other and sure enough, the entire handle had come loose at one joint.
I asked my genius husband to please service this machine on his own, since the squeaking got unbearable. I was afraid my neighbors could hear my repetitious undoing and come to fantastic conclusions! (One hour, and every day! Whoohoo!).
Anyways, he bought some grease and took the entire thing apart. Every screw. It took him about one hour to do the deed, start to finish. Since then the walker has been quiet. The counter also calmed down and counts the steps one at a time again. It took patience and precision to take it apart and screw it together again.
Although it is quiet right now, I believe it will act up again sometime in the future, and my husband will have to do another complete rebuild again.
Since this walker is non-resistant, it is very easy to get a good tempo going and to get used to it. After almost 3 months of almost daily use, I start sweating a little bit 45 minutes into my "walking" session. Sometimes I make my legs move the walker, sometimes I push with my arms forward and back, which in order moves my legs, so those arm muscles see some action. Sometimes my legs are entirely straight, sometimes I bend them at the knees.
In these past 3 months I lost exactly 10 pounds, but I would mostly attribute this to less/different food intake (I use a calorie counter on my tablet).
My husband will have a hip replacement soon and hopes to use this walker to simply start moving again to move his hip joints.
The great part is its compactness. It is very small in compare to other similar trainers, who have an entire wheel in the back. Mine is sitting on top of a small rug on top of my regular rug, because it makes indents, especially when moving.
Would I be buying it again if I would have known its problems? Yes, but only because I know my husband fixed the incredibly loud squeaking. Would I not have a handy man nearby, I would have not dared take that thing apart and I would stop using it. My ear doctor would cringe hearing it. Also, because it would be a major inconvenience, I wouldn't return it for 60 bucks, but would probably pass it onto a deaf person or someone who is really desperate to start moving.
So buy this thing only if you want to risk having to take it apart by yourself once or twice for a complete rebuild.
How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's squeaking loudly, parts are falling off, counter malfunctions. All within the first 2 months.
For the price, i am very pleased with this product. The acutal motion took me a few times to get used to it, but very much like X-country Skiing. The impact is extremely low, in fact you never really raise your feet. For $$ delivered to your door, you cannot beat this and has a very small footprint as well. Pleased with this purchase.
How accurate was the sizing? very accurate--small profile
Please tell us about the quality of the product. good quality, just starting out with exercising and i am so far pleased
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
This came out of the box, bolted on the arms, tightened the other nuts and bolt and It was good to go. I'm so happy this is silent and use it while watching TV (makes the workout go faster and could be I'm on it longer) without having to turn up the volume to be heard over a motor or belt whirring, and it only takes up a small corner of my living room! The timer/counter would be nice if it came with instructions or any easy way to reset (other than taking the battery out), but it's a very minor detail for me since I'm keeping track of my weekly steps on the Air Walker. I'm more than happy with my purchase and find myself jumping on it when I just have 5 minutes, just to add extra movements to my day.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. It seems like good quality

The assembly was easy, but once I was on it for 15 minutes, one of the legs fell off. This part had been pre-assembled. I fell and hurt my leg. I put it back together, but it always comes loose and constantly squeaks. It's awful. How do I send this giant thing back? I should have read more reviews before I bought it. There's a big metal piece of *** in my living room.
Can the resistance be increased or decreased for a harder or lighter workout?jsporing on Aug 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us jsporing. How hard you stride is what increases your workout. I have one of these and love that it does not strain my knee. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 13, 2013
it states here this item is assembled but there are mentionings below of customers putting it together. is this trainer already assembled?bettyhau on Dec 8, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
For the most part. A few parts that stick out need to be attached. Should not be a problem for anyone with any mechanical abilitiy. If you can operate it, you can put the limited number of pieces together.blackhawk33 on Dec 9, 2012
