I have owned one of these for years. It is the only piece of equipment I actually continue to use. I am pear shaped and carry most of my weight on my lower half, and this really gets my hips, thighs, lower tummy, and bum lean and tone. I sweat more on this machine in 10 mins than I do speed walking 5 miles. Not even joking! Not to mention much less impact than walking and feels better on my knee and ankle joints.
I love this little portable stepper. At first, I didn't think that something so portable could give such a great workout. I was wrong. I definitely feel my muscles working on this machine. I would really recommend it for someone who doesn't have room for the larger workout equipment and who wants to still get an effective workout.
I am happy with this purchase. I think for the price I paid, it was a good investment. I've seen some reviews complaining that it's like riding a tricycle. I didn't necessarily think so, but it's true that it's like a miniature version of a gym elliptical (which should be obvious from the size of this thing). I'm 5'5", though, so maybe for people who are 6' or something it might be too small. I like how I can use this while sitting down or standing up. I was originally considering putting it under my work desk, but it is a bit too big (length-wise, especially) to fit under my desk since I have a lot of cords down there for my computers, etc.
