    Gives a good workout
    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 ... read more would definitely buy again.

    Excellent for the price and easy on the knees
    I am not sure what some are complaining about, I tried this out in the store 4 different occassions and it was sturdy, no noise, smooth, did not hurt my knees which I have had surgery on and felt stable. I am a big girl and my husband is a 6'2, 279 lb man and even he thought it was very nice for the price. I would recommend, it works everything!

    Loud but sturdy
    My dogs get scared with noise level, and makes it hard to hear TV or music. Thought I could work out during evening news. Gets boring for 30 min without anything. Other than that, I like the sturdy construction and resistance. Not a fan of the plastic foot pieces. Hurts my heel. Cushioned would be nice.

    Relatively simple assembly, great cardio workout
    We've had the rower for about a week, still trying to adjust it but I'm looking forward to a good regular workout.

    Great Rower
    I recently purchased this rower for a complete body workout & so glad I did. Ordering another one this week for our 2nd home so I don't miss my workouts. Seeing results in a few short weeks with this great quality rower.

    It Actually Works!
    I have a small gym in my basement and I can honestly say this is by far the best piece of equipment I have owned. It works my entire body and is 'easy' to use. I actually 'enjoy' working out with this rower. As stated in other reviews, it would be nice if you could increase the tension on the pull, but don't think you don't get a good workout without an adjustable tension. When I first started, it kicked my butt within 3 minutes, now I can easily go 10 minutes without stopping. Within around 4 ... read more weeks, I could tell my legs and arms were getting toned. I can't say enough about this rower except I wish I had purchased it years ago!

    Caution: if your tall
    I'm 6'5" and the stop on the bottom of the rail was keeping the seat from going back far enough. I removed the stop and can get 95 % full extension. That's working okay. Good value otherwise.

    Perfect mat for an elliptical!
    This mat is excellent for placing under cardio equipment. I place mine under an elliptical that had a bit of a wobble, some squeaks, and it walked a bit during heavy usage. This mat unfolded completely flat and has eliminated the walking, the squeaks, and most of the wobble. Also, no chemical smells coming out of the box! Definitely worth the money!

    It's okay
    I bought this product because it had good reviews and was one of the cheaper rowing machines I could find. But, the resistance settings don't work, as the resistance on my machine feels the same set to 1 as it does set to 12.

    PERFECT
    We got this 3 weeks ago and it works perfect. We are on the 2nd floor of an apt and they don't hear the treadmill downstairs. It had a smell for about 3 days and it went away.

    Eliptical has issues
    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. ... read more Not sure I'd recommend.

    Nice
    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.

    Totally awesome for the price
    I use this mat all the time for stretching and core workouts and it works just fine and shows no signs of wearing out. Nicer yoga mats are more comfortable, but there's nothing wrong with this one.

    Good mat, but thought it would be more purple
    Solid yoga mat. I am 5'6" and use it for yoga and stretching. No complaints except that it was very pink when I excepted a more purple color, but color doesn't matter in the end. If I ever need another mat, I will buy it from here!

    BCG Minibike
    I ride a bicycle every day for exercise. I'm also an avid golfer. Due to an injury I had to curtail my activities considerably. I ordered this little minibike in order to keep my legs in shape, and also my endurance. It has been absolutely great! I can move this bike around wherever I want it. It doesn't take up a lot of space like a big exercycle, and it kept me active and in shape while recovering from injury. A great piece of equipment for older people too!

    Nice small bike.
    I bought this for my wife. She is in a wheel chair and cannot get on a full size bike. She has used it every day and is getting here leg muscles built back up. I like it because it takes up less room than the big bikes.

    Good for advertised use
    Use it under weight bench for dumbell workouts. It overlaps the equipment nicely and the microban is a nice touch. No oder, and it lays flat after a couple days. I also used it as a workout mat for a few days while it was flattening and it does a great job for that too. Held back the 5th star for price. Can get larger rubber mats at "ranch" supply store for less $$.

    Heavy Duty Rubber Mat
    I actually bought this for a different use. I use it to cover my Work Bench Top because it has a butcher block surface that I don't want to scuff up when working on it. So I tested out the different mats at Academy and found this is the most solid, dense & durable mat they sell. Yes its more expensive but I think its worth it. If I had a wood or tile floor that I wanted to protect from a heavy Treadmill or exercise Bike this would definitely protect your floor better than anything they have in ... read more the store. It advertises to be waterproof & micro-ban protected which is an added benefit I think. Definitely worth the extra bucks when protecting something more expensive!!!

    Good for the Money
    Purchased this elliptical about 5 months ago and I am overall pleased. We put it together ourselves and it took about 30 minutes or so with 2 people. I wouldn't recommend this if you are tall. I am 5'1 and sometimes I feel like I need to stretch my leg because my knees start to feel like they want to pop after about 30 minutes. Also when you increase the resistance it takes a few seconds to adjust. The pulse reader is not accurate at all. I never get a reading about 90 but my HR monitor says ... read more otherwise. Other than that it gets the job done for someone who can't go to the gym and has to work out at home. I am happy with the purchase.

    Not very stable
    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.

    Worthy.
    Considering being a female and not working with this item before, it was not difficult to assemble! All the tools are included. This machine is not noisy. I have it set up on carpet and it is stable. When you stepping and holding the two bottom hand rests the other two long handles go back and forth and you feel it is going to hit you, but it won't. I bought his elliptical last month, so far no issues.

    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 ... read more sweat through my shirt and get my heart rate over 120. That's all I wanted. Hope it lasts!

    Overall amazing product!
    Obsessed with this rower! I've been looking for a rower for a while now and decided on this one. I'm so happy I did! I was needing something to replace running as a good cardio workout, but something that is easier on my joints. This rower is perfect for just that. It challenges my endurance as well as my strength with several different programs to choose from. I keep it in my bedroom for early morning rows while my daughter is still asleep and not only is it quiet enough to not disturb her, ... read more but it also conveniently folds up to save space when it's not in use. I would highly recommend this specific rower for anyone in the market for one!!

    Air/Magnetic is KING!
    After being in the market for a rower for 6 months and being torn between getting the After 6 months of being the market in the market for a rower and being torn between the Concept 2 model D or Lifecore's R100 rower, I decided to take a chance on the Stamina DT Pro. My hope was that this product could offer the R100's cutting edge air/magnetic row resistance technology but at the lower cost of the the Concept 2 (C2). Additionally, I liked that Stamina was also throwing in the chest strap heart ... read more rate monitor with this package at no added cost. This rower took a little over an hour for me to put together. I did it by myself but knowing what I do now, I would definitely recommend you have a second person on hand to help assemble this. Doing it solo, at one point I had no choice but to stand the rower somewhat on it's head (the plastic fan casing). The case now shows stress mark from this, but doesn't effect it's performance. First off, I will tell you there are 12 programs you can use, NOT 12 resistance levels as I had originally thought. There are 8 resistance levels. I am happy with these levels though. L1 is comparable to L1 on the Concept 2, but at L8 the resistance is much higher than L10 of the C2. Level 3 or 4 seems comparable to L5 on the C2. Just as with the R100, with the DT Pro, your times will be slower than what you recorded on the C2 (unless of course you're on something you weren't before). The reason for this I believe as that the C2 gives credit for "coast". With the Air/magnetic types it's as if your paddling into a current, so basically if your oars aren't doing work in the water you aren't making forward progress. It saddened me at first a little that I most likely won't be smashing any of my PR's set with the C2, but I'm already over it. This is more honest work. Distances are measured with the DT Pro in miles. I'm used to meters, but after 3 workouts I've made the mental transition. *note; I can see in the display screen that there is a "Km" above the "miles" but there is no way I can find to switch it to Km's. Does Stamina sell the Km version to those outside the U.S.? The stroke of the DT Pro is wicked smooth. This was what I signed up for! It is also much quieter than the the C2. The saddle slide is also very smooth. However, the edges of the seat are highly contoured. I am 6'0 200 lbs and my fanny fits within the contoured sides just fine. I could see fitting in this seat being a problem though, particularly if your pushing the 300 lb weight capacity of this rower. The other important thing I noticed about the seat/slide is that while, yes, it is smooth, if your weight is properly distributed over the beam, if you lean your weight out to the left or right, however, there is very noticeable "sway" of the seat that could throw you off balance. I don't know if this was intentional in the design to make it a more realistic rowing experience. I'm also not sure how much stress from the sway the seat can take before it will breaks. The foot-straps are my biggest hang up with the DT Pro. They are 2 Velcro strips that don't appear to be reinforced in any way. With the amount of force my feet snap back into these straps especially when doing short/vigorous sprints, I honestly can't see these things being long for this world. This rower is easy enough to move around on it rollers. Storing it away in it's upright position is slightly awkward though. This is because there is a knob that needs to be fully unscrewed an removed to allow the beam to pivot into vertical position and then screwed back in get in the horizontal/ready for use position. Not sure why they couldn't have used some kind of quick release pin. Ohhh, one other really important note: Don't forget to unplug from the power source before moving the rower. I've already make this mistake twice. Luckily I didn't damage anything. Yes, you have to plug the rower in to use the monitor and activate the resistance settings. Overall, I would say I got what I wanted and for a good price. Time will tell though. I plan to be pretty rough on this rower. I will update this review in few months to note how its holding up.
