My husband and I love to walk. We try to put in 3 or 4 miles everyday. It's getting tougher as we get older and especially in the winter, to walk in the neighborhood. We really didn't like having to get in the car and drive somewhere to walk so we did some research and looked around and bought this NordicTrack ellipitical E7.1 for our home workout room. I love it. It has turned out to be a much better workout than just walking and my knees and back don't hurt when I'm finished. It's a little bigger than I thought it would be but that's OK because it does fold up if you need it too. It's sturdy and runs smoothly, I had an exercise bike that was alot noisier than this elliptical is. It has a variety of workout modes, and automatic resistances and ramp variations so you can choose what you want to do that day, I thought I was in pretty good shape before, but now I'm thinking WOW!!! I can hardly wait to see what kind of shape I'll be in when spring arrives.
