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
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 wanted a full size elliptical but didn't have the space or budget. So, I decided to give this a try. I use it standing and so does my son. It works well. It's relatively smooth for a small machine. It gives a good leg/cardio workout. It's definitely worth the price. Easy to move as well as it's not overly heavy.
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.
