    Great alternative to gym membership!
    I always used an elliptical machine at the gym as best workout machine for hips/back without stress on knees, ankles, back etc. When the gym closed I researched &, based on many good reviews bought this Stamina InMotion Compact Strider. Easy to store & gives me the workout I had at the gym less the side handle bars - but I just use hand weights at times with it as suggested on website video. Great that I can get a good workout at home despite weather, no gym costs, no special gym clothing, etc.

    Excellent Fitness Tool for a great price
    I did a lot of research to figure the best available elliptical for what I could afford. I weigh 260 lbs and wanted something solid.  I purchased the Schwinn 430 Elliptical from Academy because the great value.  It was easy to assemble, however a small piece of the molded shroud was cracked.  I called Academy CS and they forwarded me to the manufacturer, which happened to be Nautilus, which also makes Bowflex. After a quick call with a great customer service, they sent me the replacement without ... read more any trouble.  Definitely pleased with Academy and the purchase.

    Excellent Buy
    This is a pretty great elliptical. The features are great. I like that you can check your heart rate to see if you are getting aerobic, or anaerobic workouts. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that we had it for one day and the display stopped working. I have to say that customer service was excellent and we had a new one shipping to us right away. So far there have been no problems with the new display.

    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.

    Good value
    Bought this a year ago and it has squeaked off and on. Really nerve wracking squeaks.. Finally followed manual directions and tightened all the nuts and bolts and lubricated the moving parts. Duh!! That is why it says to tighten them every 30 days. Now the squeak stops... If you are having trouble with squeaking, you might want to tighten all the nuts and bolts and don't forget to grease each working part.

    Schwinn 230 Recumbent Bike
    I purchased this bike for weight loss and strength training. Love it!! I get the same quality work out in my den with this bike that I got at my wellness center. I enjoy the interval program. It's challenging one moment and just when I think I can do no more I get to coast. It seems stable and well built. It took me and my son one hour to put together. Because of the awkwardness of holding some pieces, I'd say it's definitely a two person job.

    Great features
    I have had a Schwinn Air Dyne for about 25 years with zero problems. I am still learning how to use the S230. I like very much its sturdiness and comfort. The owners manual console photo does not agree with the actual console which has complicated my learning process. I will request help if I do not succeed very soon. Ease of assembly is to be praised.

    Quality, Easy Assembly, great for walking
    After a medical scare, I've been walking 2-3 miles every morning to lose weight and improve my overall health. Or as my wife says stick around to bug her a little longer. This machine has been wonderful since it got cold. It's keeping me in the habit. Was pretty easy to assemble, is quieter than I heard treadmills were, and is softer feeling than I expected. I'm happy the boy at the store in Sunset Valley led me to this one when I was down visiting my daughter.

    Great for the price, you cant go wrong...
    Just bought it today, putting it together was fairly easy.... only had one problem and that was with the screws for the crossbar to the monitor. Used it an found it was much more sturdier then the floor model at the store....don't let that fool you if you try it in-store. Only took about an hour or so to put together... maybe longer if you have no experience... over all , I'm very happy ..... and in a month or so .... totally....

    Great Rower

    Great Rowing Machine
    We have had this item for about two months and it was well worth the small investment. It is sturdy yet portable.

    Very quiet and stable
    Was somewhat unsure about stability due to the size of the unit, but it's very stable and putting it together was very simple. The instructions were very straightforward and parts were solid. This was a gift for my girlfriend who wanted one for a while now, and when she uses it I can't hear it. It's incredibly quiet which is great when I'm trying to work on something at the same time. She's pretty short and the seat doesn't quite go down to a short enough level, but she likes everything else ... read more about it that she didn't want to swap it out.

    This is by far the best bike I've used! I've been to many gyms and the "gym quality" equipment spent compare. Yes the ones at the gym may be bigger but this is absolutely perfect for home workouts! Its simple to put together, sturdy and I love that it has so many levels of restrictance! I'm 5'6 135 and it fits me perfectly with the seat in the middle position! Don't spend hundreds of dollars, this is the one!

    Magnetic Bike
    I thought it would be hard to put together but it wasn't and it's worth the money the only thing that I don't like is the seat it's hard.

    Love it!
    I really like this space-saving bike! It was easy to assemble too, thank goodness. The only negative is I can't figure out how to reset the miles and the instruction guide doesn't say how, but that is a minor issue. I'm very happy with the purchase!

    Even my uses wife this rower!
    I have only had this a couple of weeks. Gives a great cardio workout! My wife said I really enjoy using the rower. She is very non-athletic this went as far as her telling me about diffrent workouts she was making up in using the rower.I like the fact the fan keeps you cool as you work out. I like the product! Very easy to put together.

    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.

    Great for desk jobs!
    I bought this from my local Academy to be able to work out at my desk. I've found I love it so much, I may buy another for home! Great seated or standing, no one at work even knows I'm stepping all day! Love it!

    All around good
    Weight: 6 pounds. I 've used this for a week and am quite pleased to have a light weight stepper. I have a larger one in front of the TV, but wanted one that I could easily move outside when the weather is nice. At first I thought it was jerky, but after I sprayed the joints with WD40, it is smooth as silk.

    Works like it promised
    I bought this about a month and a half ago. I put it together myself, no assistance from my husband. Once I got it together, began using it, and it works you out. It feels like being on one of the larger machines. Except, the cost was less.

    Excellent piece of equipment
    I've had the ProForm 7000 treadmill for a week now and it is an absolutely terrific piece of equipment, far better than what is offered at our fitness center. So many ammenities to make for a great workout.

    It's okay for the price

    The price is perfect and beats all competators
    I bought on at Sports 5 and didn't have warranty and the personnel were uninformative about product. unprofessional and were just there. Academy knows their products. Great job training.

    EXCELLENT for seniors 60+
    I purchased my Exerpeutic 400 XL a month ago and is the BEST exercise equipment I have ever purchased. It's very, very comfortable & quiet not to mention it easily folds for storage. Assembly is easy if the instructions are carefully read. Easier for two (2 ) to assemble due to some parts being difficult to attach while holding. I assembled mines alone so it can be done by one (1 ) person 60+ years old.

    Great Features and Works Great!
    I bought this exercise bike a month ago and it works great! I use it everyday to keep my knee replacement in shape. The bike was easy to assemble. Has all the essential features: distance, calories burned, time, speed, scan and heart rate I wanted. At 6'2" I get a comfortable ride with the resistance I need to keep my knees in shape. Folding up the bike for quick storage is very easy. Definitely a good buy.

    Great exercise equipment with easy disassembling
    This exercise bicycle is excellent! Here are the features that I really like…. Easy to assemble with assembly tools included with clear assembly instructions. Assembly took about 45 minutes from out of the box to riding. The electronic information screen is very easy to see and understand (large letters). This screen gives you continuous information on your exercise session like the speed, the distance, your pulse rate, calories burned and duration of session. The multiple resistance settings ... read more are great for the progression of your exercising program. This equipment is super quiet and very durable. The best and most important part of this bike is the space saver feature. This bike can be collapsed (without the use of any tools) in a few minutes to three pieces that can be either stored or transported in my sports car using minimum space. For me, this was an excellent choice for the price and super quality!

    Good for what it is
    For a $20 purchase, I'm happy. It's under my desk at work. I can pedal while I'm reading emails. It's awkward but doable and helps with the lethargy that an "8 hours at my desk on the computer" day can bring. With the configuration of my chair and desk, it doesn't work while typing, but at least I am getting an extra few minutes of motion every hour. A little squeaky. Get some oil when you pick this up.

    I bought this Oct. 2013 because I was having total knee replacement. I used it before I had surgery, when I got home, and now to keep the knee active. It helped me in my recovery time during the between visits of physical therapy. I rated 5 stars because the product did what I needed.

Choose from a wide range of cardio machines, like ellipticals, exercise bikes and rowing machines, which make perfect additions to your home exercise equipment collection. Ellipticals provide an excellent combination of leg and arm exercises, ensuring you lose more calories and strengthen your muscles quickly. Exercise bikes allow for calorie loss without unnecessary stress to your joints. Rowing machines are the most intensive pieces of fitness equipment available, giving you a full-body workout rather than focusing solely on refining your upper body.

Steppers and Treadmills

Steppers and treadmills are perfect for fitness enthusiasts that want to make the most of their home gym equipment. Treadmills are workout equipment classics, allowing you to walk, jog and run for miles, all from the convenience of your home. Certain treadmills among our collection can read your pulse and chart your entire exercise regimen while you're on it, so it's easy to monitor your fitness progress or stay within your desired heart rate range. Steppers provide the same mileage as treadmills but with the addition of varying degrees of incline and resistance. The steeper you set your stepper, the more calories you burn as a result.
