Budget Elliptical trainer for people who are out of shape.
I researched elliptical’s for several months.I was going to purchase a $1200 beast that did everything except the actual work out for me. So why did I buy this low budget machine?
Petite, Sturdy, SpaceSaver
I bought this affordable home elliptical a couple of weeks ago, along with an Exerpeutic GOLD XL9 Aero Elliptical and Exercise Bike Dual Trainer. I bought both because they were affordable and for years, I’ve used the elliptical for years, but only to complement my cycle riding. After moving from a complex with a gym to an apt without, I needed something to fit my space, be sturdy enough for a 6′ 240 lb guy, and without anything computerized. After getting both assembled and trying out, I decided I like the Exerpeutic a lot better, so I’m selling the BR on Craigs. The Body Rider seems sturdy enough, the foot pedals are plenty big enough for my size 12 foot. I personally found the handlebars don’t fit my natural needs. I’ve read some reviews where people complain they’re sort of leaning forward because of the pedals and this could be true. This machine comes with no frills whatsoever. Most of you will complain there’s no catchall for water bottles or a place to put your phone or mirror so you can primp while ellipticalling, or even a place to put your sweat rag. But for that person that doesn’t have the space, needs to work up a sweat, needs to save money, looking for something sturdy, this could last you a long time, IF you’re not looking to be on it 90 minutes a day. If you’re a beginner, trust me, you’ll be lucky to make it ten minutes the first time on here. For me, the exerpeutic just fits me better. ONE NOTE: The pieces that come enclosed in plastic, be careful opening the crank tubes. There will be TWO very SMALL pins in there that can get lost real quick if you’re not careful.
Needs a Four Inch Lift
I like this product and it’s good quality for the nearly disposable price point. But it does have one weird flaw. When you are on it, your feet are pointed at an extreme downward angle which often makes your feet slip forward. I also feel like I am falling forward. I fixed this problem by buying two four inch tall bricks at Lowes ($3 each) to prop up the front of the machine. See attached pic. This works wonders and has made the workout on the machine much more comfortable.
Better than expected
I just assembled this today – by myself, thankyouverymuch, in about an hour. The instructions are very clear and specific, and easier to follow than I expected. Just make sure to actually read them closely (I fought with one of the bolts for a full ten minutes before realizing that this was the only one they instructed you to turn counter-clockwise. Whoops.). All in all, very straightforward. All the parts and tools were there.
The package arrived in good shape and the parts were easy to remove
I received this elliptical trainer about a week ago, so my comments need to be taken as a new owner. I will update them with time.
Great compact elliptical
I love this thing. I needed something compact to store in my small house, that I could move by myself to use in the evening after the kids go to bed. I roll it out into the living room and work out in front of the TV, then roll it back when I’m finished. Some other reviews said it was hard to put together so I was dreading that, but my husband put it together for me – with the kids “helping” – and had it all done by the time I got home from work. I’m guessing it couldn’t have been too bad. It’s non-electric, so you don’t need an outlet, and although the fan does produce some noise, it’s not annoyingly loud. I couldn’t figure out how to get the display thing to attach correctly, so I just don’t use it. Overall a great value for the price.
All the reviews that said it was quiet and easy to move
I’ve had this a few weeks and it was exactly what I was looking for. All the reviews that said it was quiet and easy to move…correct! I didn’t need fancy, just a good workout machine. Had planned to get a Bowflex…save myself over $1500 and probably going to get the same results. Very happy with this machine. My husband put it together in a couple of hours. Excellent investment!
Great deal–and not hard to put together!
I may change this to five stars once we’ve used it for more than a day or two. So far, this is great. Inspired by some other posts, I decided we did not want to pay $1200 for a machine that we might not use. So the price is right on this. Seems to work fine, but again, we just put it together. If I get really into this type of exercise again, we might upgrade but for now it’s all we need.
