The gym I frequent is between work and home, so when I don't have to go straight home, I hit the gym. On their trainer, I get my cardio rate at level 7 and about 7.5 MPH. I get my heartrate just from holding the moving handles.
I get my cardio heartrate about 5.5 MPH, and level 1. I have to hold the stationary handles to get my heart rate. That takes about 30 seconds. I can get a good cardio workout at home in about the time it takes to drive to the gym, find a parking spot, walk from there to the gym, back to the car, and drive home. Its easier to stretch and do resistance training at the gym, so I'm keeping my membership.
It took me several hours to assemble the trainer. The instructions say you can pick it up by one end and wheel it around. It is possible, and even though you have a long lever, and the weight is on the far end, its still heavy. I messed up a bit when I was ready to attach the cable in the upper console to the cables in the lower console. I pulled the cables all the way through before they were connected to anything. DO NOT DO THAT! It took me a long time with a wire fish to undo that mistake.
Finally, they don't tell you where the power plugs into. I had to ask my neighbor to help me look. The power jack is in the middle of the front of the fly wheel housing.
Almost everything is roller bearings, so I didn't really need to grease anything to keep it from squeaking. But, since I already had the lithium grease, I used it. I tried to avoid inhaling it, and minimized skin contact. There are no roller bearings where the upper handles pivot on the rods on the upper console, so I made sure it was lubricated there.
It has a fan and speakers and a volume control). I like the auto on, and auto off feature.
I assembled it myself which took about 45 minutes. It's pretty simple actually- if you can assemble IKEA furniture you can assemble this. Packaging was excellent- very heavy.
I'm 5' 10" and for me the stride distance is just a tad short. If I were over 6 foot it would be too uncomfortable. For the $$$ I can deal with it.
After about 10 hours of use I noticed at low resistance the right side started making a slight clunking noise. It's not something that bothers me much, nothing seems loose or falling apart, so I can live with it.
The fan is sufficient for a unit in this price range, but the "electronic smell" it emits is a bit much. It's like the air intake for the fan is running through the circuitry and you get that "just soldiered" smell. Maybe it'll go away in time.
The speakers are ok. Nothing more, nothing less. This isn't a high fidelity sound system but it beats the speakers in my iphone and ipad.
All-in-all for the price I think it's a good value. I was impressed enough with the brand to buy they're budget level treadmill a month later. That I gave 5 stars so the brand quality seems consistent.
I only have two small quibbles about this piece of equipment. 1) The drink holder is in an inconvenient place, about a foot and a half lower than the main dashboard. It can be a bit difficult to access while using the machine. 2) When I'm using it, I have to be a little careful about applying too much torque to the unit, otherwise it does a little twist back and forth. It doesn't seem to have good torsional rigidity.
