I haven't worked out in 5 years
Deana from KENT, WA– Verified Buyer
This machine is a challenge for complete beginners like me - it is hard to keep the motions smooth. However, that said, I have found that even though I have a bad back and sore, aching (chronic) knees, this machine did not agitate or make them worse. I could only do a minute at a time the first week. By the end of my second week (thanks to adding stretches and muscle loosening movements before I stepped on the machine), I am up to 10 minutes at a time. It's slow but my improvement can be tracked with the panel. MORE ABOUT THE MACHINE: Yes, it took a little time to put together, but it wasn't as difficult as some of my other "simple" home assembly projects so I would rate the difficulty at about slightly higher than beginner-level (helps to use own tools - what came with the machine would have been troublesome to use). I have a friend who said her machine was rickety and made lots of noise -- it's because she didn't fully tighten the bolts and screws etc. Proper assembly is important for smooth, quiet function. About the quiet -- it is VERY quiet. My downstairs neighbor has to be at work by 5 in the morning and so goes to bed really early, and she hasn't heard a thing. There isn't noise from the machine and no impact noises such as I would have with a treadmill. Starts very easily when you step on and stops instantly when you stop. You can hang onto the swinging bar or the stationary hand bars and get a workout either way. Right now, the machine is set at low tension but I have tested it at high tension and can tell that I'll appreciate the challenge if I ever get good at it.

Received in a timely manner. Easy put together with boyfriend took about 45 min together!. The long moving handle came damaged and I request in for replacement a couple weeks ago but haven't heard anything yet.. :( .... It works great. The resistance is crazy just at 2 i could barely do 30 min and i'm use to doing the one at the gym so that makes me excited to work towards higher resistances. The machine is really small so that makes it light which makes it wobble a little during use and i'm not a large person.. I do have it on carpet in the basement which helps.. but I still think its a great purchace for the money. Great work out on this machine. Giving it a 4 because it came damaged and it wasn't shipping damage it was wrapped in well with this damage on the cushion of the long handle unfortunately.
Happy with purchase

I'm very happy with the overall quality of this product. I was a bit concerned about having to assemble it myself, but it was very simple. The pictures and instructions could have been larger and clearer on some steps, but it took me about an hour to put together and was not hard at all.
not fun to put together with tools provided
Barbie from ROCK, MI– Verified Buyer
So far I really think for the price this was well worth the $.
amazingly fun and healthful workout
Nancy from Warminster, PA– Verified Buyer
The 1000XL elliptical has met my expectation for an effective workout! Not only is the workout effective, it's also fun. The machine was easy to assemble even though it took some time. The electronic monitors are beneficial in both tracking and motivating personalized workouts. This machine will never get the chance to become a clothes hanger as some others I've owned in the past that were difficult to use due to the poor quality of electric monitoring.
Annastacia from New Albany, IN
Very pleased with my purchase. Took about an hour to put together. Very sleek look and easy to operate and understand the display. Great workout, started with 5 minutes, almost killed me. At first it hurt my knees and back, so did it every couple of days until I got used to it. Adding more time each day and it is getting easier for me to do.
What A workout, Id Recommend!
Rebecca from Fredonia PA– Verified Buyer
This elliptical came quickly and it was well packed. It wasn't hard to put together it may have took an hour and a half, and I was impressed because they provide the tools needed to do the job(minus a screwdriver if you need it ). Once put together it was a little stiff at first when i got on and tried to pedal but WD40 would clear that right up. Its been working like a charm ever since and I have no issues with this Machine!
This perfact work out machine in this price. For those people who can not go gym.
Muzaffar from Springfield, VA– Verified Buyer

FOR MY DAUGHTER
SONDRA from eudora, KS– Verified Buyer
I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY DAUGHTER TO USE, SHE'S HAD IT A LITTLE OVER A MONTH AND SEEMS TO LIKE IT. SHE USES IT TWICE A DAY AND LAST WEEK MADE IT TO 10 MIN. THE ONE THINGS SHE DOESN'T CARE FOR IS THE SHORT STRIDE. I LIKED THE PRICE AND THE FREE SHIPPING. RECEIVED IT QUICKLY, WITH NO DAMAGES. I ORDERED ONE FOR MY MOM.
