I purchased this elliptical to get back into shape. I assembled the elliptical, which was a little bit more than I expected but it came together well. I used it for awhile but I haven't been on it as my knee has prevented me from doing so. If you have problems with assembling things I would look elsewhere, otherwise mine hasn't caused me any problems.
I have a gym membership but with my husband new job it was hard for me to get to the gym. I need something I could use at home. I put the elliptical together myself it took about 3 hours after which included lay out the parts and hardware. The directions were easy to follow. I have used it the stride is not as smooth as the elliptical at the gym but it works and you get used to the movement. The screen does have the heart monitor and calorie count but it is definitely not accurate. The time and the distance work well. I think this is a great machine for the home. Especially if you are on a budget.
this item is not bad for the price. pay special attention to assembly and make sure ALL the washers are where they need to be. (i had owned a nordictrack which is obviously a better product/more $$$ but only lasted 2 years.) i am happy with this purchase overall. it does have a forward incline but i adjusted well to it. this elliptical will give you the workout you need.
This is one of the least expensive ellipticals I found and I am very pleased! The quality for exercising is decent, especially for the price. It operates smoothly and fairly quietly. Adjustment is simple. The computer was basic and easy to use. But what I was amazed with was the incredible organization of the assembly instructions. I am a total do-it-yourselfer and this was, hands down, the clearest and easiest to follow set of assembly directions. All necessary tools were included and the hardware was sorted and packaged by assembly step. My 11 year-old daughter and I put it together while my wife was in the shower. It was that easy!
