The gazelle was easy to assemble and even easier to use. It gives you a great workout without hurting your knees but you do feel it in your legs. I have recommended the gazelle to several friends and family.
I used to be a fitness instructor and love my Gazelle. I gained a lot of weight when I quit teaching and decided recently to get back into shape but my knees do give me trouble now. They don't hurt at all when I use the Gazelle! The computerized readout is good, too. The only drawback I've found is that after quite a bit of use my Gazelle started squeaking when I use it. Not a big deal, just a bit of noise and the machine itself is still functioning perfectly. This is a great machine for those who have joint problems as it isn't high impact. It's also kind of fun to use, like it felt when you were little and would glide on roller skates or skis.
Great machine for the money. If you've been wanting to get moving again, but have been putting it off, get this machine and USE it! More fun than a treadmill, easier than an elliptical. Perfect for those of use who used to be in shape, but have fallen by the wayside in the past few years. I have set mine up in my office for fear of my small children playing on it, but now I want one for my home as well. It was also recommended to me by my chiropractor for my hip mis-alignment. I'm satisfied!
this product is one that is good for people needing to get some form of exercise. I have a problem with having motivation to get out and exercise, but this product is very simple and i don't mind doing it.
The only thing that i didn't like about this product was that my cup holder was broken and an end cap was missing from my maching, very minor things, overall this was a great purchase.
I agree with the claim that the gazelle provides a great workout without stressing the hips, knees and ankles.
I have asthma and after using this for 4 weeks I am seeing an increase in my peak flow which means that my lung function is stronger.
I am very pleased with the results I have seen so far.
This product really does exactly what the commercials say. It is just as easy as it looks and in 10 minutes I am sweating and feel like I have had a workout. I like that I feel like I am stretching, warming up, excersising and cooling down all in one motion. I just started back up using it again after a couple of years and you would think that I would be sore but I wasn't. I love that it is quiet, unlike a treadmill, so I can watch videos or movies or the Today show. I can easily change the tempo and speed so I can move to whatever music is on. To work another group of muscles all you have to do is lean forward, backward or squat at different degrees rather than break up your routine by changing weights, punching buttons or stopping so you can change positions. You can change the intensity of your workout in an instant making it easy to step it up as your endurance and fitness level changes. I totally dig it and highly reccomend it, especially if you hate excersise and have no time to go to a gym. It takes some space but is easily folded up and leaned against a wall if you care about that. I just leave mine set up. The pain of navigating around it is nowhere near the pain of going through life without trying to be healthy.
I was a little skeptical at first, because I had heard of the first gazelle and thought it looked like there wasn't much to it, but this gazelle power plus is great! Sure, it's not quite as extensive as a full sized eliptical that costs $2,000, but for about $300, it's great! Doesn't take up a whole lot of room and would be easy to move if you needed to.
There are four levels (no resistance, level 1, level 2, level 3). The no resistance level is very easy and allows you to go fast, but doesn't give you much of a work out. I was surprised by how much more difficult the level 1 was (I haven't even tried level 2 and 3)! It seems tough at first but gets easier really quick.
This is a great machine because you can do more than one workout on it. It comes with a video and instruction manual, but you can just play around on it and figure out all the different ways to target different areas of your body (based on where you grab the handles at, if you lean forward or back, if you squat while you do it, etc). You can even let go of the handles and just jog like you would outside.
I would definitely recommend this product!
This product was easy to put together but took aprox. two hours by myself. It would be faster if you have two people to assemble however. It is very sturdy and designed well. There are tension levels in which you have to change manually from one to another but it is simple to do and only takes a minute. There is one setting for no tension for beginners or for someone who needs to start out easy before going to the more advanced settings. The machine is pretty quiet so that if you had music or a TV you could watch watch or listen to without background noise. It gives you a great low impact total body workout with the arm bars. I have used it everyday for the last few weeks and have had no problems with it and am very happy that I purchased it. Even my wife who does not usually work out uses it now. We also have a treadmill and
a stationary bike but I like the Gazzelle the best. It is simple in design yet very effective.
Heavy duty , balanced, structurally sound, says up to 350 lbs and could probably hold more weight. doesnt feel awkward when you get on verses the smaller machines in the Gazelle group. Exercising very smooth and comfortable, low impact on knees and hips, dvd explains machine well and offers a good workout. it's a machine you could use 30 minutes every day if you are looking for a low impact workout on our body.l
This is exactly what I need to get this fat off.
It included a DVD to get you started and my son did not have a problem putting it together. Eaisly moved out of the way as it has rollers on the front end and even if I only have 10 minutes it is 10 more minutes of exercise.
I love my new Gazelle Power Plus
Have only been using it for a week, but so far, it is very quiet, smooth, and gets my heart rate up great. Very low impact, pretty easy to move in and out of a room, too.
Love the Gazelle and the options that come with it. Enjoyed the video and recipe book as well.
This exercise machine is most enjoyable, fun and all while burning calories.
Easy on the joints which is what I love the most.
I really enjoy my new gazelle. I would rather of had one that folded but this one is great.
Gazelle was easy to assemble and my daughter likes to use it also.
I love this machine! It's perfect for poeple like me who love to work out, but are starting to get older joints that don't like to be slammed around so much ;)
Only downside of it was that the cup holder was completely smashed, even though the box was in pretty good shape upon arrival. It's not a critical part, but still a bit sad.
i really like this because it has no impact on my knees and it has a lot of different exercises that can be done that target different parts of your body.
I am a 52 yr old woman who put this together by myself. took me a couple of hours but it was actually very easy. My 16yr old son also uses it. The dvd that comes with should be watched before using as it shows you the best ways to exercise with it for the best benefit.
The Gazelle Power Plus is easy to assemble - two people really are needed though. The product is stable and easy to use. The low impact workout is a major benefit for family members with back problems.
I would recommend you use your own tools to assemble as the tools that come with the Gazelle are really only good as a last resort.
I previously owned the model of this and handed it down and upgraded. This one is much more sturdy. Its a quite product. Quite and fairly easy to assemble(about 2 hours) Much better than an elliptical if your looking for something that takes up less space and quite. Very good work out. Definetely would recommend.LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow! I love this thing. I have NEVER worked out before in my life so we will see how long this lasts. I have a knee injury that is not bad enough for surgry but hurts enough that I can't do anything else. I bought the adjustable one hoping my husband would try this too. The first day I did it for 20 minutes as to not aggravate my knee plus I didn't want to be sore. Yes call me a wimp. Anyway I put it on the first level of resistance the second day because I was not sore anywhere. We will see how well the rest of my life work out goes. Get this & have fun getting in shape. Time flies on this thing.
