I bought this many years ago but just started to commit myself to a regular workout routine. Boy, I'm glad I did! I've lost 8 pounds after 3 months of working out 5 days a week for 30 minutes while watching my favorite tv show. I wasn't losing weight at first. I didn't begin to lose weight until about 2 1/2 months. Suddenly, I started to lose a pound every few days. I'm glad I persisted. I guess it just took awhile for my metabolism to kick in. I didn't change my eating habits so i knew the elliptical trainer was the culprit. I worked out with the resistance knob turned 1 time with the knob line mark at top, which enabled me to burn 250 calories 30 minutes. I love that this elliptical trainer is so compact, and virtually tucks away inconspicuously anywhere, out-of-sight.
This was easy to assemble. I do wish the instructions had more words but it was not too hard to put together. The machine works fine it gets me to break a sweat. I do agree with some of the reviews that the pedals are a bit pointed so the top of your shoe runs into them but it's a good machine at a good price.
I have had this now about 2 weeks. It was easy to put together. The top is a little wobbly. You have to tighten it up ever so often, but overall great purchase for the money.
The machine works great! I haven't been able to get it to read my pulse rate though. It also shifts a little with increased speeds. Overall I'm happy with the purchase!
