I thought I was in shape because I'd been using treadmills, elliptical and weight machines at gym. This was a killer at first! I'm still only doing 15 min at a time after a couple of weeks and I was doing 30 min on the other equipment.
I really like this machine. It arrived in one box that was left outside my front door. I brought it inside myself and assembled it alone. I could have used an extra hand with assembly, but I certainly was able to assemble it myself. Read the instructions carefully several times before you start assembly. As far as the machine itself, I"m extremely happy. It is easy to use and it feels very similar to the one I use in the gym. The only thing that might be a problem is that the machine maxes out at 75 lbs. That hasnt been a problem for me, but it is worth noting.
