    Excellent Way to Exercise at Work!
    I bought the under desk elliptical machine in the hopes of getting more exercise while I'm stuck behind a desk for 8-10hrs a day. I was hesitant at first because I wasn't sure how distracting the machine would be while trying to work on spreadsheets and emails. It was only distracting for the first couple hours. After that, I almost forgot it was there while I worked. I've been using the elliptical for the past two months and I love it! I feel more energized during the day and better about ... read more myself because I got some low-intensity cardio in. The first elliptical I bought broke after 6 weeks and Stamina was very quick to identify the problem and send me a new unit. Great customer service experience.

    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.

    Very easy to use. Offers a great workout.
    I've been using this for just over 2 weeks now. As I mentioned, if gives a great work out, Very easy to use. My wife and I out it together in just under 2 hours (without killing each other!). The settings as far as programs, resistance, etc. are simple to understand. We're getting great use out of it. I'd say really the only issue I have is that it squeaks a little during use. But it isn't bad at all. Barely noticeable

    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!

    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.

    Perfect for Beginners or Advanced
    I bought this treadmill a month ago to become more active because my work hours make it difficult to get to the gym. While watching my fave prime time shows, I can walk, jog or run on this treadmill. It's sturdy, and flexible for all types of athletes; beginners or advanced. I did spend extra money to get it assembled but I think it was worth it, I can exercise without fear that it will fall apart.

    1215 Orbital Rower
    I bought this rower a month ago, and I'm a little upset that I paid $499.00 for it and I see that it's on for $399.00 and after Christmas it was on sale for $299.00 and I missed that price. Anyway, I love it. The fact that it's easy to use, folds up nicely, the counter on it is fabulous. I love the fact that I can keep track of the miles and calories while I'm rowing away!

    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.

    Lots of options
    I bought the treadmill about a month ago and use it daily. Very well built and lots of different workouts can be done. Worth the money.

    Marvelous Workouts
    I've had a friend buy me one of these and I can't stress how badly I needed one. Thanks to Academy Sports, I can have a treadmill in my house to help me burn off my fat and gain stamina for the track team. Defiantly something you might want to consider buying!!! The price is pretty fenominal and worth what it offers!!!

    It's okay for the price
    I was hoping for the elliptical to be a bit wider than what it is

    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.

    Great Bike!
    I got my bike by UPS- free shipping! My husband assembled it and it wasn't hard at all. It is very senior citizen friendly. Not real heavy to move around if you needed. Very sturdy, easy viewing of all the features. I am really happy I bought it. I have been riding it 30 minutes a day- 4 days a week and I love it!

    Several things
    The treadmill is great I'm happy with it and was delivered quickly. Just a few extras you need, a mat to protect your floors when you oil it. You also need the lubrication cloth and the oil. Another thing it does not come assembled you have to call a company but they came quickly and did an excellence job. Cost is extra. The day it is delivered you need someone to help you, they want to leave it in the garage, driveway, etc. so they don't damage your floors.

    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!

    empty bottle of lube delivered
    I purchased two sets . When I opened the first one, the bottle of lube had leaked and was empty. Wasted my money on it. Glad I had another one , it was ok

    Quick and easy
    This kit make the maintenance of your treadmill super easy. Spreads the lubricant evenly and you will be finished quickly! Less strain on your 'expensive' treadmill motor.

    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.

    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.

    Great Bike
    I bought this bike from amazon a year or so ago. I paid around $125 for it. I was leery at first because of the low price; however, it is perfect. I have it in our media room and ride it almost every night while watching television. Because of the way that it is made, it takes up less space than a full fledged recumbent bike. It is easy to assemble (comes in a few pieces) and easy to move around!

    Not smooth riding at all.
    I've been very disappointed with this bike. It's not a smooth peddling bike at all. It's quite jerky.

    Nice bike, reasonably priced
    The bike works fine and seems to be well constructed. Assembly wasn't too hard. I've only had it a week and it suits me fine!

    Great investment
    I was surprised at the quality and sturdy construction of this desk treadmill. I've used it many times and find that everything is working.  I really like the controls on the side handles that allow me to speed up or down and raise and lower the incline.
