I needed something to keep active while sitting at the desk all day.
This machine works great for biking, it's very quiet and I can keep working and typing just fine.
We also have a table that can raise and lower with the monitor and keyboard on it so that I can either Stand or sit, or in this case even use the eliptical side of this machine.
It works fine for me and those who complain of no handles when using the eliptical, you could always put a chair right in front of you for a little stability.
Chair needs to be a little higher for pedaling I found out, with good straight up back support.
My disappointment is I didn't get this product sooner. For at least 6 years I have been sitting behind a desk for at least 8 hours a day without getting circulation in my legs or any exercise. This helps me stay fit while working.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Bluebird11 Heavy & too big to fit under most desks/tables
Uggh, and assembly required ! Stuck at a desk during work and wanted a way to maintain fitness. This is NOT it. Quite heavy and awkward to move around. Too big to fit under most desk --and unless you work at a really high desk, there is no room to move your knees up and down to use this. Have to look for something else. And have to lug this thing back in for return. --Disappointed.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by BEChristianson Just what I needed
I needed something to use to strengthen my legs to get as strong as possible before I need to have a knee replacement. It's small but sturdy, easy to use easy to move. I didn't want a big piece of excercises equipment that I would have to put in the basement and most likely never use. It's especially good for the price.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jalex4454 Elliptical Trainer
I did a lot of research on different trainers and this one had the most positive reviews. I've had gym memberships before and wasted them because frankly I'm lazy. I was afraid this would be a piece of garbage and I would have to return it as I have with others. Surprisingly, it was easy to put together. It does not squeak like others, it's very quiet and smooth. I watch tv and workout for an hour+. It's not going to provide a crazy intense workout so you gym rats keep going to the gym. The strides are to short, therefore, I needed to sit down and workout, which is perfect for me! I do feel my leg muscles getting a workout. I use it daily while I watch my tv shows. I love it. I recommend this item for new moms that can't get out, ppl don't have time for the gym or like most reviewers take it to work and get a nice little workout.
