PROS: this is the 3rd reasonably priced practical and simple home fitness machine i have bought in 4 yrs (1st was a twist stepper, 2nd a stationary bike with workout arms), and this is by far my most satisfying exercise machine. it's minimally quiet, easy on the knees, and induces sweat in just 10 MINS!
CONS/IMPROVEMENTS: 1. like what other reviews mentioned, there's a LEANING-FORWARD exercise stance on the elliptical machine (which most home ellip. machines have if you do research). but instead of adding something higher on the PEDALS for the feet to rest on like another reviewer did, i focused on improving the HANDLES. the handles both FACE FORWARD and OUTWARD from the body, so that also adds to the forward-leaning as your reach extends forward. i considered buying BIKE HANDLE EXTENDERS to attach/clamp, BUT i didnt want to spend any more $$. so i decided to turn the handles around towards the body and secure them with just one screw each instead of the original 2 screws. see the photos of before and after. it felt a little BETTER! *** NOTE: MANUFACTURER PLS CONSIDER ISSUE THIS ISSUE FOR IMPROVEMENT.
2. the feet should be LONGER, as it feels like the machine is gonna topple to the sides when it leans a little on both sides as you exercise. NOTE: same as above =)
