    Compact, Quiet, and what I wanted
    I have had my Compact Strider a couple weeks. It is exactly what I hoped to receive. Shipping time was great as well. I can use this while watching TV at night...I used to sit after sitting all day at a desk job. It is quiet so it does not interfere with conversation, television watching, or other family members. I do not know how much weight this will help me lose, but I feel better that I am not sitting. The strider is easy to use and has great options for tracking your use.

    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.

    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.

    It's Ok
    Arrived on time. Assembled pretty easy. The instructions for assembly were good but, the info on the operation of the dash board were not that good. The upper grips are too for forward when I get the bike seat set at the proper distance. Need to have and adjustment on these bars as well. Over all it is a good bike, just needs a few tweaks.

    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.

    I moved on a farm that is too far away to keep my gym membership. I needed to create my own gym. This piece is perfect addition to help my home gym.

    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.

    Good value
    We have had this rower for a month. So far so good. I will be interested to see if the shocks maintain their resistance over time. It operates smoothly with plenty of adjustable resistance. The machine is sturdy. The build instructions are poor. Use common sense and look often at the picture of the completed rower on the box to properly orient the part. The instructions will have the wrong side up.

    Great Purchase
    I could not be happier with my bike purchase. I received my package one day after ordering. The box looked banged up a little but everything inside looked perfect. All the pieces were there, everything I needed to put it together and the instructions were very easy to follow. I am not mechanically inclined yet I put it together by myself in about an hour. The product seems very sturdy and is super quiet. The only bad thing I can say is the monitor is sometimes finicky about clearing out to zero between uses.

    Recumbent for the Real Person
    Recovering from two reconstructive surgeries, I decided to investigate recumbents. After looking at reviews and trying a couple out, I hit on this Impex. It is the perfect entry level recumbent for the real person trying to get back in shape. Easy to assemble, light weight enough to pull around your room, sturdy enough for both my husband and me to log in some time. The delivery was on time and the total price was better than several other sites. I am pleased with this purchase and looking ... read more forward to hitting the streets on my "real" bike after getting my body strong again.

    Great purchase
    I tried this bike out at one of the local stores before purchasing it and I loved it. I was a bit skeptical about putting it together, because I have tried that before with stationary bikes, and it didn't go so good. This bike was a piece of cake to put together. I am a 50 year old female, with poor upper body strength. I had this bike put together in 45 minutes. LOVE IT!! Worth every penny I spent on it, very solid bike....I see many, many years of use out of it.

    Exceded my expectations
    I wasn't able to visit a store and actually see this product, so was a little skeptical of the reviews I'd read on-line, but the price was right and I decided to give it a try. It was easily assembled and just as well built as a much more expensive one that I'd been using at a local fitness center. I'm 6'4" tall so the ability to adjust the seat high enough for my frame was a consideration and, although in the highest position, it's working fine. Would reccomend it to anyone.

    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!

    The right size bike.
    It is just the right size for senior citizens. Get on and get off easy. I love it.

    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.

    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!!!

    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.

    I bought the Body Champ Magnetic Recumbent Exercise Bike 0n 6/10/15 and have lost 13 lbs. It arrived in 2 days and I have been averaging 8 miles a day. Started on notch 1, now on notch 2 and getting ready to advance to notch 3. I started at 328 lbs. and I'm going for 200 lbs. I'm 66 yrs. old and will report on progress from time to time. I would have gave a 5 star rate but I have to keep tightening the hardware. No big problem. I'm very satisfied and would recommend purchasing the bike.

    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.

    Easy to use
    I bought this a month ago & am very happy with it. It is easy to use for the whole family. Great alternative when I can't walk outside due to the weather. Only complaints are it really needs a handle as it is not super heavy but awkward to move from one spot to another. Also, after repeated use, there is a little squeak & the wheels leave a black residue, so information on what to use to grease it should be included in the manual. I have looked in the manual & online without information. ... read more Otherwise, great product!

    Stamina InMotion Elliptical
    Since receiving my machine I have more energy, I use while sitting down working at my desk and I feel more relaxed while working now! My husband jumps on sporadically but loves it as well! It's great that I can put this in a closet as to not take up major space and still work out while working!! Now if they only had a mini treadmill for the desk!

    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.

    Really nice!
    I went in to the store to purchase a different elliptical. Once I got there I loved that all of them were set up to try. I found I didn't like the one I was originally going to purchase. I tried them all out and decided on this one. It had smooth operation and I felt that I could not dread exercise. The assembly was rather easy. The instructions were great. Got it all together in about 2 hours by myself. It is just like it was in the store. Very nice glide and not over much. Has alot of neat ... read more features. I got a good exercise with it. I also felt it was a good value. I am very pleased.

    Academy you have Great customer service!
    I love this product and the price. It was delivered to my door for no extra charge and before the estimated delivery date. The elliptical is my way to a healthy lifestyle and the entire experience has so far exceeded my expectations. Thank you. There are so many workouts available and with wifi you can customize your routine. Easy to assemble and use. Great value for the price.
