"This looks like something I would benefit from. Question is I'm 65 y.o. female , with a bad back due to being 30 lbs overweight with some arthritis and I'm short, about 5 ft 2 inches. I want to know if I would be required to really lean forward to hold onto the handles which would not be good for me to do. I need to hold on but stay upright. I can't tell from pics. I wouldn't think so but models look much taller. Thanks for feedback."
Great product for the money. I've been using it for six months and have had no problems. It's got several levels of difficulty and a manual operation mode. Easy to program....

I bought this machine to support my size. As a heavier woman, I needed something to support my 270 pound, 5'9" frame. I assembled the machine by myself following the directions closely. All pieces were included and it worked perfectly. I am very satisfied with my purchase and look forward to becoming healthier!Read More
Great gift for the fitness conscious
This was an excellent deal for a gift. I purchased two, one for my husband, and the other for my daughter and her husband. They all loved this machine and continue to use it. They reported that it was not too difficult to assemble.Read More
Great Price & Very easy to put together
I bought this for both my wife and I to use. I expected to set aside, like the 100's of other products I have had to put together, a 4 hour block of time. Not so this time. This is by far the easiest and well written set of instructions. It took me 30 minutes to put together. The instructions were in detailed English and even told you the order to tighten the screws. Very very simple. Once together it was easy to choose a program and start your workout. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because the electronics didn't allow you to set a body weight or type. My wife who is 145lbs and myself who is 275lbs show burning the same amount of calories for the same workout.Read More

Solid home machine
We are very happy with this machine. It has just enough length in the foot motion to work for our family which has people of varying height. If you are careful when putting it together, it should feel solid upon completion. I would give it 5 stars if the motion was just a little smoother but I really cannot complain as it is very comfortable to use and we are glad we bought it. It gives a good workout so beginners and advanced athletes should be happy. Good purchase.Read More
Great compact equipment
Unfortunately I haven't been able to use it yet due to a medical condition. Assembly very easy instructions very clear anyone can do it. My husband has used it and agrees it's well worth the money, can move it around fairly easily, doesn't take up a lot if room, good workout. Has spot for your phone, iPad, water bottle. We live in Florida and the summer is just too hot to go riding or running, so this works out great for us. Looking forward to going the distance!Read More
