As other reviewers have stated, this is a small elliptical with a small stride. I wish the stride was longer, even though I'm 5'3" and I have short legs. My son adjusted the black knobs on the legs to prevent the wobbling problem others have mentioned. All in all, it's a good machine for those of us who don't have $$$+ for a higher grade elliptical trainer, and I look forward to it helping me get back into shape!
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.
as a couple approaching our 80's, we were looking for a device to replace our older elliptical trainer which has served us for the past 10 years - this is the perfect size and cost - it takes a little while to become accustomed to the motion and to stabilize efforts to get the results but its worth the effort
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.
