This CANNOT work for anyone….
This pedal exerciser works perfectly. All I had to do was screw on the tension wheel and I was good to go. It does sit without moving even on a Berber rug. The feet are rubber and have ribs so they hold to the Berber but would not hold to a smooth rug. Fortunately I was able to move the area rug enough so that it works fine. I don’t really use the timer gizmo, I just time it by my watch. I bought it because if have a very bad back and one bad knee and this is perfect. I sit in a recliner with a pillow behind my back or in a club chair or in a straight back dining room chair depending on what I am doing. I haven’t done the arm exercise yet but am sure it will be just as good. The tension is excellent. I find it well made, using good materials. I keep it in my living room near my recliner and use for now once a day but will probably move to twice a day soon. Being 81 and having exercised at a gym for 14 years til my back got too bad and my PT told me I could no longer push or pull weights, I have been unable to exercise other than walking and then my back would growl. So I bought a walker and it’s too cold right now to go out. So……this inexpensive, well made exerciser is perfect and the price is incredible. I registered it yesterday for the one year warranty. To me this is a good, sturdy piece of equipment. I also do not use the straps, I never have in all the years I used a recumbent bike, they just bother me and my feet hold easily on the pedals of this machine. I cannot remove them however, without cutting one side and that bothers me. Who knows who might want to use it and have the straps. Usually, the straps are able to be removed, I think. Not sure thought since I never used them at the gym and they did not fall to the floor. The right side did get in the way last night so I may just cut them off. No one else will use this exerciser so no reason to be annoyed by them. Folding it up is so easy, pull the ring on each side, done and nicely out of the way. I waited over a week to see how I liked this and should anything occur which is not good, I will edit this review. Oh, my son is going to buy one to use under his desk. I have something else I use there and don’t want to pedal while computing.
Works as advertised
I purchased this for my older sister since it is difficult for her to get exercise by walking. It came well packaged and on the day it was suppose to come. It slides a little on the floor, but that issue was taken care of by setting it against the side of a shelf. She can only use it about 15 minutes at a time, but does work up a sweat doing it.
My Leg Water Swelling is Down After 1 Week.
Shipping fast, customer support (Juan) was great! I have a problem with fluid build up in my right leg which is painful and hard to peddle a stand up bike for long periods of time. My doctor suggested a floor model. This baby is doing the trick and my swelling is going down plus it’s mobile so when I go to my daughter’s house to watch football, it goes with me. Light weight, but sturdy.
Perfect for work
I have been using this at work since the day it arrived. I forget I am using it sometimes and I go on for hours while sitting at work (most of my job is sitting down, which is why I ordered this). It’s quiet, smooth, and I work up a minor sweat while using it. I notice my legs are tired by the end of the day and I honestly feel like I got a small workout, even if it’s not high impact or strenuous. I will continue to use this to burn calories while at my desk all day. Purchased for this reason, and am getting out of it what I had hoped for.
It most likely won’t get you in shape for the Tour de France, but it is convenient, light weight, and will get your heart rate up. I have osteoarthritis in my knees, so while I’m supposed to do weight bearing exercises for my osteoporosis, walking and running are out for me. I have access to a full size cycle, but getting there involves walking and climbing stairs, so I decided to make a small investment in this little gem for my everyday use. I’ve started using it for fifteen minute sessions twice a day and I’m very happy with it. It fits under my coffee table, the timer is easy to read, and I’m altogether pleased with my purchase.
Perfect for work. Can just peddle away while sitting at my desk. I work 12 hour shifts with the majority of it sitting at a desk. Only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is that it would be nice to be able to adjust the tension (there isn’t any) to make it a little harder per rotation and get a better work out. But for the money can’t beat it!
Very easy to set up and use
Very easy to set up and use. It appears to be pretty durable, so far so good. The only drawback so far is that it has a tendency to slide forward on the carpet while using. I have a mat that I can put down and then place the Pedal Excerciser on top, so far that has currently solved the sliding issue.
Good quality exerciser
Good quality exerciser. Well made, sturdy. Easy to read display (calories burned, time etc). No assembly required. Takes up very little space. Has a tendency to slide while using it. We corrected this by placing sticky drawer liner under the legs of the unit. Nothing negative to report.
