There is a bit of assembly but instructions are straightforward. This elliptical is legit. Heart monitor, little lip to hold you phone or a book, good stride length and it's a tougher workout than I'm use to on an elliptical which is a plus! Only problem is you have to plug it in but it you set it up somewhere near an outlet you are good to go. Definitely a great buy for the price!
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 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!
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
