Bought ours about 2 weeks ago. My husband wanted an elliptical and I wanted a bike so thought this was pretty great. The first we ordered online and it had a crack so took that back and the next one also had a small crack. It still works fine. Academy did give us 15 percent back when I filled out a different review, which was nice because I never asked for money back or anything. I love that the machine isn't too bulky and you can go back and forth between elliptical and bike easily. I

Exactly What I was Looking for!
I own a condo and am limited on space this fits perfectly in my area! My BF and I put it together in less than a couple of hours, directions are written a little weird, but just make sure you read each section first. I love the elliptical! Am boy am I out of shape!! lol... Has great resistance if needed - I'm not there yet. lol. Love that fact that you can sit and pedal, gives you a different feel and work out. Like the 2-handle options as well. It is quiet which is nice as I have a

This machine isn't what I thought it would be. It it isn't stable and it rocks when in use. I would have returned it but I had already pay for assembly. Will just have to make the best of it. I had tried a different one in store (same brand ) it was better.

Exactly what I was looking for.
I did my homework. I was looking for a gym like experience without breaking the bank and I found it. Assembly was not overwhelming, I took my time and it may have taken me between one and a half to two hours to assemble. The machine is really quiet (I wasn't't looking for that but I think it is a good thing). It seems like it will last a long time and I am very pleased with the purchase.
Gave it four stars would've gave it five but I don't give anybody five stars this product it is exactly what it says it is works well quiet does it's job exactly what I paid for

So far (2 weeks) so Good
Initial opinion is positive. I was worried about moving 250+ pounds of equipment down to the basement--came in manageable pieces (none over 70 lbs.). With the help of my wife, got everything downstairs. Was worried about putting it together--no problem, easy directions. Had bad squeak when first started using it, but--no problem. When I discovered where the mysterious last screw went, the squeak went away. I'm sure the $2000 machines have more features, buy I'm satisfied. I'm 65. In 30 minutes I

Bought this onsale at Academy. The eliptical part has an issue. The trainer is too harrow. If you are standing up and trying to use it, it wobbles from side to side. Also, the foot peddles are too close to the front and not adjustable. The "bike" portion works pretty good but here's what I had to do. 1st, I added a plywood base that widens the base and fixes the problem with center of gravity. No more wobble. 2nd. I had to buy a larger seat from 3rd party as the existing hurts you after a while.

I love this 2 in 1 trainer. Its great. I can sit and ride bicycle them I can stand right up and really work my legs. I love love love it. I have been on it everyday since I received it in the mail a few weeks ago ;o and it doesn't wobble at all like people are complaining about. You all must not be putting it together right.
