This is one workout machine that I really don't like. It is clumsy to use, and as my feet swing I always feel like they are coming up right off the machine. It's also hard to get in the swing of it, so I spend more time focusing on my foot coordination than the actual workout. I also don't feel like I'm even getting a workout on it. I don't feel my heart rate and breathing accelerate or my muscles burn; it's just not my idea of exercise.
