Rated 4 out of 5Â by Dissapointed8 I am not super handy and I was able to put this together with the help of my eight year old daughter. The directions are somewhat difficult, but common sense here prevails. Shipping was fast, item came undamaged. Yes the stride is a bit shorter than on the gym equipment I've used, but I am 5 foot 8 and about 190 pounds and this has worked just fine for me. I was somewhat hesitant to buy it because of other reviews about this- but it's great - seriously. Also, I used my own tools to put it together, not the ones provided, and the machine seems stable and no loud noises. I've used it everyday for 30 min for the past week. There is a slight squeak, but I think it just needs more grease. Overall, this was a great buy for the price.

Though I thought the price was reasonable, the elliptical arrived damaged. The plastic casing around the tensioner was all broke into multiple pieces and the wires for the monitor where not even connected to the monitor and just fell out when I picked it up. Also one of the places that should have been greased, was not. Rather than trying to haul the big thing to a store for a return, I superglued the broken plastic, added grease that I got from other parts of the machine, and am trying to contact sunny health and fitness for a new monitor. I did use it this morning for the first time and it does the job. Nothing fantastic. The stride is very short but it gets the heart going.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by imjigglingbaby great buy for the price
I bought this elliptical to use at home. Its definitely more than i expected. I'm 5'3. At first the strides do feel a bit short but after the first use i got used to it. I absolutely love that Its very stylish, functional, sturdy. I love that i can adjust the retention to get the most out of my work out. It doesnt take up a lot of space and you can easily move it around. The only not so bad thing i could say is that it does have a slight klink sound at times but its not crazy loud. BUY IT!!!!!!!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by CXShopperinRR Definitely for short people
I took a chance on buying this elliptical with a great deal from Kohl's. Even though I did read the reviews (which were positive for the most part), and even though I am "short" at 5'1", and even though the elliptical was fairly easy to put together, it is still somewhat difficult to use because it has such a short stride. I can't really do a full "elliptical" without a jerky motion. I would not really recommend this product, unless you are shorter than I am at 5'1"!
