***[Update 01/17/2013] Someone commented and suggested that WD40 is more of a temporary fix, so look into buying some lubrication other than this :)
Putting it together took me 3 hours [I was working alone]. The instructions SUCKED, I probably could of been done faster if the manual was done better.
The machine is pretty compact, I use it in my living room and just slide it in the corner afterwards.
I haven't had any issues with noise with this machine, most likely because I used the WD40 on it. Also, it doesn't make noise on the floor [I live in a 2 story 2 family home on the 2nd floor and it doesn't make noise downstairs for my neighbors].
I am a 28 year old woman, 5'7 and 225 pounds at a size 16. I brought this machine to slim down and start a healthy lifestyle. First off, this machine [according to the book I got inside], will hold up to 300 pounds. It's sturdy [doesn't wobble while using it] and gave me one heck of a workout. I tried it out the first time for 30 minutes and I was dripping in sweat afterward even though my ac was on full blast. This machine WORKS you out!
You should definitely buy a can of WD40 with your purchase or from any store that carries it. SPRAY all the parts even though they're already greased, especially the tension wire [while you're assembling it]. I had issues the first time with the tension wire [even though the resistance was on 1, it felt like it was on 100!]. A good lubrication with the WD40 did the trick. Also, I sprayed inside the triangular silver part [where the pedals are] with the WD40 and everything smoothed out.
I love this machine and I'm glad that I invested in it. With this machine, a change in my eating habits and consistency, I know that I will reach my fitness goals!
2 month update
The machine is still doing great, and I know it's because of the weekly sprays with the WD 40. I use it 4 times a week for about 30 minutes to an hour and I'm down 22 pounds :) Maintenance is KEY everyone, PLEASE spray the parts, you'll get a better workout that way!
The machine is still going strong :) I'm have now lost a total of 37 pounds.
NONE of the parts are breaking, no strange noises and I KNOW it's because I lube it up and clean it. It's like a car, if you don't give it an oil change, it's not gonna perform that great, so I continue to spray with the WD 40. Some where still having questions about the machine still being too tough, so let me explain a little more what I do:
1. I shake up the WD40 can and spray inside the silver triangle part [where the pedals are, I spray the tension wire [I unscrew the knob loose, spray inside where the cord is], and I spray all the flexible metal parts/joints [I don't know how else to describe it - I'll post a video review or something showing the places where I spray the WD40 in a day or two]
2. I jump on the machine and pedal for a minute or two [to make sure the oil gets inside the parts], jump off and wait about 30 minutes [so the parts loosen up. Then I get back on and do my workout.
After my workout, I clean it down with some wipes [removing sweat, dust...] and slide it back in the corner.
***I figure that the machines are sitting in some warehouse for months, years even, so it would make sense that the parts are tough when you first assemble it and use it. Mine was tough for a whole week before it loosen, and for that first week, I sprayed every day and used it every day. So, I figure that consistent use and spraying will help fix the issue. I dunno, hope this helps someone :)
If anyone has anymore questions about this machine, let me know :)
**** I tried to upload a short 1 minute video showing exactly where I spray the machine, but the file is 'too large' [sighs]... I'll try some other time...
Update - [1/30/2013]
Hey everyone, just adding an update and answering some more questions:
Well, for my weight, I am now at 178, bringing my overall weight loss so far to 47 pounds. I'm at a size 10 :)
**I will tell the truth - around the end of December I started stalling [the weight wasn't coming off as fast as is was in the beginning - which is usually the case for most people]. I did continue using the elliptical, but I also added in some other exercises [for upper body, especially my arms]. I have HUGE arms [they're like thighs on my arms, lol] and I had to do A LOT of arm exercises [pushups, dumbbells...], to shed that extra fat that remained as I began to lose weight. I also go jogging when the weather is nice here in Long Island, NY and get some fresh air. I think switching up your routine will not only get you out of a weight loss stall but also give you variety, which will keep you from getting bored easily.
******I also wanted to encourage anyone who is on their own healthy living/ weight loss journey to keep going! Weight loss is something YOU have to decide to do for YOURSELF. Trust me, it's HARD WORK, a combination of eating right and moving your body but YOU CAN DO IT! It might take you awhile to get use to a routine that works for YOU but once you do, go hard, go strong! It's NEVER too late to start taking care of yourself! Some tips:
1. Take pics, maybe once a month or a before, middle and after pic to see where you've come from - This REALLY motivated me to keep going - People were telling me that I was losing weight, but I didn't see it until I looked back at pics I took of myself before - what a shock that was!
2. If you're someone who obsesses over numbers on the scale, do weekly, or bi-weekly weight ins. Sometimes checking everyday is discouraging [even though you're losing inches]. I weigh myself on Sundays in the mornings as soon as I get up.
3. Buy yourself some goal clothes and document the improvements - For example - I brought a pair of size 8 jeans. When I first started, I took a pic and the jeans could only get up to my ankles -lol-. The next pics showed the jeans going up ever so slowly. I can now get them on [but their still tight], but what a change from where I started! So buy a goal dress, pants, bathing suit [summer will be here before we know it] whatever you want!
4. Try different foods so you won't get bored. Please don't stick to 1 food that you eat, try new healthier things.
5. Once you develop self control, treat yourself to a snack here and there. If you want a bag of chips, have SOME [not ALL - lol]. Or even, buy those portion sized snacks they sell here on amazon [I buy crasains, mixed nuts, popcorn....]
****Small update - 2-22-2013 - Knee concerns: If you have any kind of knee issues, you should research which type of elliptical machine is best [so you won't hurt/injure/irritate your knees]. My mom came over for a couple of days and attempted to use the machine, but was having knee problems with it.... There are different types of elliptical machines [rear drive, front drive and center drive] and they all have different slopes. This elliptical machine slope is more slanted then the ones she's use to using at LA Fitness, so this one caused her some pain. So I would HIGHLY recommend that if you have any kind of knee problems that you talk to your doctor or a trainer and ask them what type of elliptical would be best for your delicate knees :)
The box was delivered today (one day earlier than expected).
After reading other reviews about the difficulties other people were having I decided to share my experience putting it together.
Three things stuck out in my mind about the reviews I read 1: The nuts and bolts work loose after using the machine and had to be retightened regularly 2: It developed squeaks and needed to be treated with WD40 often. I decided to solve those problems before I even started assembly. I went to Home Depot and bought a tube of "White Lithium Grease" and "LOCTITE Thread Locker BLUE" (not red). It cost about $11 for both. 3: I did not attach the plastic decorative covers after reading how they were an added source of squeaks. They are not needed.
When I got home I took everything out of the box and laid the parts out. Next I read all the instructions and familiarized myself with the layout and began putting it together. Note: There are left and right side parts that must be put together correctly. Right parts have a red (R) and left parts have a black (L). Left and right are determined from the view as if you are standing on the machine. The nuts and bolts of the left and right parts thread on differently, read the instructions and it's not a problem.
The tools they provide will work fine, but I used my own because they worked better for me.
Remember it is not a race. It took me 4 hours to assemble. It may take you less or more time. Take your time and do it right the first time. I put a drop of Loctite blue on the threads of each bolt I attached. Use the blue Loctite because it locks the nut on so it will not loosen on its own but can be removed with a wrench if needed. The red Loctite holds the nut and bolt together so tight you need a heatgun or torch to break the bond. You do not need to use Loctite on the bolts where the nuts have white nylon in the center of the nut. They should stay tight on their own. Some of the parts have a little grease on them from the factory. This is where I put the White Lithium Grease. The grease they use is not that good and WD40 will solve a squeak for a while but it is a lubricant, not grease. Use rubber gloves or an old tooth brush and put a good glob of grease all around where the arms attach to the frame and the foot attaches to the crank. You can always wipe off any excess grease that squeezes out while tightening the bolts.
The computer comes with 2 Heavy Duty AA batteries. I replaced them with alkaline batteries so they will last longer.
I gave it a whirl after I was done and it gave me one heck of a workout. I could only do about 5 minutes on the lowest setting and I was pooped. It should do the job.
We have had the Exerpeutic 100XL for about 2 weeks now and so far so good. I'm 57 years old, 6'3" tall and weigh 220 lbs. My wife is 5'4" (I will not list her age or weight for fear of great bodily harm to my person). The machine works great for both of us. I started out at 4 minutes on the elliptical and it kicked my butt. I'm now up to 10 minutes and doing much better. It gives me quite the workout. As others have mentioned the calorie counter is way off and I use it and the other settings as a rough idea on my workout. I like the pulse monitor to keep track of my heart rate.
I have not had an issue with bolts, nuts or screws becoming loose since I put "Blue Loctite" on them during assembly. Using "White Lithium Grease" on the movable parts has resulted in no squeaks with one exception. The plastic Foot Pedals squeaked where they met the metal Foot Bar. I solved this issue by taking a piece of the thin foam sheet of packing material from the box, cutting it to fit the Foot Pedal and placing it between the Foot Pedal and Foot Bar. No more squeaks.
We have had the Exerpeutic 100XL for 1 year now and it has performed great. The machine is used in the winter months when we can't get outside to walk. I started out doing 4 min. then worked up to 10, now I am able to workout for 30 min. Because we used the "Blue Loctite" and "White Lithium Grease" during assembly we have had no issues with nuts or bolts coming loose and no squeaks at all. We are very happy with this exercise machine and would recommend it to anyone looking for a way to get some exercise at home in a small area.
UPDATE! i did reach the company and they were non-hesitant to send me my replacement part, it took longer to get the part as two day shipping wasn't an option as its not a prime shipping item as I'm used to so it felt like we waited forever but it was standard shipping and its been great since then!!
The pulse-monitor is not convenient to use as you need to put your hands on the stationary sensors to check your heart rate. The monitor starts at 70 and slowly increases to your actual heart rate. We purchased a heart monitor watch with a chest strap (model no longer sold) and that works great for monitoring our heart rate constantly.
Some of the plastic parts that cover the joints have broken. I just taped them back together with packing tape and they’ve been fine.
I’ve been very happy with this product and company and would recommend it.
