This is one of my all time favorite machines. I started having hip problems a few years ago due to running. My doctor advised finding a good elliptical due to it not being as hard on your joints. After doing some research, I decided to go with this machine. I have been extremely satisfied with it. It works great and has held up great. It has a lot of features so I can always mix up my workout. It is easy to use and it fits well in my home. I love using it and it is a great replacement for running. It is also much easier on your joints. I would highly recommend this machine. You could always pay a lot more for a nicer one but this one has been great for me. Performance The performance has been wonderful. It works great and always gives me a great workout. It keeps me in great shape. Comfort It is comfortable to use and fits my stride well. Ease of Use It is very easy to use. It has a lot of features but they are self explanatory. Durability Mine has held up great for a few years now. I have had no problems with it. Design The design is great!
