I bought the under desk elliptical machine in the hopes of getting more exercise while I'm stuck behind a desk for 8-10hrs a day. I was hesitant at first because I wasn't sure how distracting the machine would be while trying to work on spreadsheets and emails. It was only distracting for the first couple hours. After that, I almost forgot it was there while I worked. I've been using the elliptical for the past two months and I love it! I feel more energized during the day and better about myself because I got some low-intensity cardio in. The first elliptical I bought broke after 6 weeks and Stamina was very quick to identify the problem and send me a new unit. Great customer service experience.
My husband just recently bought one of these ellipticals, and he can't say enough good things about it. He uses it every morning and he enjoys it so much better than the treadmill. We love this brand, would buy again!
I had a limited budget and researched ellipticals for a month before buying this one. Money and stride length were my two biggest factors in selectin an elliptical. I'm a tall girl (5'10") and this was actually the only elliptical I could find with a decent stride length. I read you should not purchase less than 18" stride length if you were over 5'9". I bought this at Overstock to avoid paying for shipping and tax, so it cost $***. My fiancé and I put it together in 2 hours. Directions seemed intimidating at first but they turned out to be fairly simple to follow. I have been using the elliptical daily for a week now. I can already tell I need to tighten up some screws, but other than that I have no complaints. The resistance goes up to level 24, and I max it out daily. I'm sweating buckets so that's good :) Love the smartphone app feature to track my workouts. I also use myfitnesspal to log food intake. I'm not convinced that he built-in calorie tracker on the elliptical is accurate, because the heart rate monitor is way off about half of the time, but a simple fix would be to buy your own heart monitor and wear it while you workout.
