Rated 5 out of 5★ by Crazy4Lucy Great little machine, well made and afforadable! I was very skeptical when searching for a value priced elliptical with the features I required. With limited floor space in our living room, I wasn't even considering the more popular mammoth sized machines with electronic screens and fancy programs since their price tags were sky high. This compact little cutie is perfect for my needs. When a doctor recommended I use an elliptical as a low impact exercise with my bad knees, I knew I'd need to find the right machine before beginning my workout regimen. This machine comes in a few pieces but assembly was very self-explanatory with full graphics and easy to follow instructions. All needed tools were included. From start to finish it took me under 50 minutes and I'm normally all thumbs with assembling. This really was a snap! The unit takes up a small footprint on my wooden floor and can be moved around depending on where I wish to use it. Maximum weight is 250 lbs. and I had a friend try it who is close to that size and there was no problems with balance or unwanted movement. The handle bar offers a stable resting place for your hands, and though the benefit of an arm workout which you'd get with fancier ellipticals is lacking here, I found that to get a better all-around workout I could just swing my arms vigorously to get them pumping while I pedaled with no problems balancing. My legs felt the burn within minutes. The adjustable knob allows for a more challenging workout. The counter lets you keep track of steps, time and calories but it's kind of hard to read while you're moving due to positioning on the lower half of the base. The foot pedals are generously sized and my feet do not slip or move awkwardly. I love that the movement is smooth and there is virtually no noise so I can really jump on this thing while the kids are asleep and not worry about waking them up. With truly nothing negative to say about this machine, I would highly recommend it for anyone looking to get a basic cardio workout without spending a fortune. I used Site-to-Store option and got it quicker than the initial expected time. 06/13/2013
Rated 2 out of 5★ by flowerchild30 I purchased this not realizing that the stride was so ridiculously short that it made using the machine very uncomfortable. I've tried full size elliptical machines and really enjoyed the movement, but this felt very awkward and jerky and actually hurt my knees. I returned it. 06/21/2013

Rated 1 out of 5★ by SS9628 Walmart is super, product was a flop. I absolutely love doing business with Walmart, but this item is a waste of money, its flimsy and operates poorly. 12/03/2013

Rated 3 out of 5★ by TXGAL31 OK for the price I have herniated discs in my neck and this "elliptical" does not glide like a regular size elliptical and the up and down motion caused pressure on my neck resulting in pain. Also, not as stable as I would like, some back and forth motion as well. 08/10/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by HealthyChocolateGirl Good but short steps It was challenging to assemble alone (better to follow directions and have a helper handy!).I'm glad I opted for the model with the handle to provide the balance help/security.When I used the full-size ellipticals at the gym, the steps are comfortable, fluid movements. This compact machine has such a small circle for the steps that going slow is very jerky, but if you can go faster you get enough momentum and the jerkiness goes away.I haven't used it a lot, just a few minutes every few days, but it seems like a good deal for the price. 08/10/2014
