The OrbiTrek stand alone bike exercise machine is a convienent piece of exercise equipment but it is definetly not easy to use. And it is not for someone who is just starting out on an exercise routine. I think that the OrbiTrek stand alone bike exercise machine is for someone who is in shape and has been working out for a while. I borrowed one from my mom who said it is definetly a work out. And I know now what she meant by that because the OrbiTrek stand alone bike exercise machine is something you definetly have to work at, I am 23 and thought that it would be easy and fun. But I couldn't do it for more than 10 minutes and that was on the easiest setting!. This is defenetly not something I would recommend to do as the first option for starting out on a work out/ exercise regimen. I think that if I were to exercise doing something else first get into better shape and then try out the OrbiTrek stand alone bike exercise machine, it would maybe be easier then. But it was hard for me.
