I wasn't quite sure if this product was going to be much help for me. I seemed a little small and I wasn't sure I would get a good work out. I was wrong! I have worked out on it 30 min a day for the past 9 days and am really feeling it. I have slowly increased the resistance, which is actually pretty strong. This is a GREAT product especially if you live in an apartment and don't have a lot of spare space or money for a gym membership. Also, if you like to sit around watching TV, just put this under your feet and go at it.
The only cons of this product is that it slips a little when you do the more intense workouts (I put it up against a wall and use a folding chair). Also, I learned this tonight that the pedals themselves can get very hot (I was going pretty fast at for 35 min at a high resistance). Make sure you wear shoes or you will feel the heat on your feet!! The metal also gets pretty warm after being used for awhile.
Overall, I think this is the best Christmas present I have ever gotten. I'm going to use this until I get to a weight where I am comfortable to go to a gym (and when it's warm enough to get out of the house regularly!!) It is convenient to use and always available in your home (keep it in the living room so you look at it and remind yourself to work out), so there is no reason not to work out. Paired with a workout ball, you can get a great workout! After a little over a week of diet and using this, my stomach is already getting smaller.
So far, I am ecstatic with the results I am seeing! I think I am going to get some arm weights to use with it while I am "biking" to work more of my body at the same time.
