A good basic piece of equipment for the beginner or intermediate user. Smaller footprint than most. Time-consuming to assemble but probably no worse than others. Heart rate monitor doesn't work but I've had at least 5 different pieces of equipment from various manufacturers and they have all been just as useless. Ditto with calorie counters--unless the machine takes into account your height, weight, age, etc. it is a poor estimator of calories burned. Data on the console is big enough to read easily. Overall it suits my purpose very well.
Start with 10 to 15 min a day then add ankle and wrist weights as you build your strength and stamina, you will feel it good cardio work out. Worth the price.
this exerpeutic aero elliptical its not bad for the price and the shipping was quick but it take some time to get use to but it a nice work out in the home i like it very much
I'm going to be 62 soon and have been working out regularly, I used to have a gym with cardio equipment at my disposal, but recently moved and set up my home workout room with free weights, my bench and squat rack. I also rock climb 2x a week. But I noticed that my cardio was lacking recently due to not having anything available. After considerable research and time, I decided to look at home rower units. After checking many sites, the stamina air rower kept popping up as a great unit and surprisingly inexpensive. I received the unit recently, set it up in about 40 minutes and gave it a try. I'm in excellent shape to begin with but I was winded quickly. Nice! I've been using it in conjunction with my lifting program and I have to say, this unit really helps kick it up as it involves your whole body. Hopefully it will last, but I'm happy with my purchase! Use it or lose it! Great unit.
