This ended up being MUCH better than I anticipated...
December 2, 2012
I read the reviews for this on Amazon and went back and forth about buying it for hours! I also read about it on other sites as well. I was looking for an elliptical in this price range that was going to be the best for my money - this is it. I put the whole thing together and it was not as hard as people make it out to be, just follow the directions!! It is SUPER heavy though and my husband and I really did struggle to get it up our stairs. It is VERY sturdy and feels VERY smooth. Yes, it has a shorter stride - of course it's going to, I don't feel like this is a legitimate complaint for this price range though. I'm 5'3 and it feels fine. In fact, my husband is 6'3 and he says it feels short for him but still finds it useful and works up a sweat. Yes, this screen is small/hard to read but I guess I just don't really care. This might be more important who are really interested in the stats - I'm happy to just jump on for a half hour and I don't really care how many calories I burn. I have practically used it every/every other night since I've gotten it and I really just love it. So happy that I got it.
