Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wendy923 Love this little gem!
I'm definitely not one to get up and go running or drive to the gym...the fact that I can park this in front of the tv and it doesn't take up my entire living room is perfect. Its low impact, nice on my knees and hips which are trashed from years of running back in the day but gives a decent workout. The only minor disappointment was the tension dial doesn't seem to do much of anything.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PhilT Excellent exerciser
I found the compact strider while looking for an exercise option after hip replacement. I have been told I shouldn't run as much as I was used to so was thinking of an elliptical machine but living in a smaller house the size was prohibitive.
I had hoped to use this under my desk but with longer legs that didn't work so I now have it in the family room. When I'm lazy I pedal away while sitting and watching TV. Recently I've taken to standing which works much better than I had hoped for with such a small machine.
Overall very happy - rated 4 instead of 5 because it didn't fit under the desk as I'd hope and it is a bit squeaky after 1 month (of pretty good use - 5-10,000 strides per day).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Powellk86 Perfect Size
I wanted an elliptical badly. But I like how the rooms of my house look, clean and free of clutter... and I really didn't want any of thsoe rooms to become "the room with a giant elliptical in it." So I was thrilled to find this option! Comparatively low-cost, hides neatly beside the couch, yet still has all the features I wanted. I am pleased with this purchase. My only complaint is that after a month of use it is already making squeaky noises... I am a 130lb female using it for 20 minutes every other day. So it really shouldn't be acting up yet. I don't think it was designed for regular use. But I can fix the noises with WD-40 so as long as that's the only issue I experience, I am still a satisfied customer!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LittleRJ Compact, nice little space saving eliptical, quiet
I bought this a few weeks ago. I am very satisfied. It operates very smoothly. A few people say if they used it sitting down they had to put a block of wood under the front, but if you check the manual it says when using it sitting down to turn it around with the straight stabilizer in front and the round part closest to your body. The controls will not be facing you but the instructions show you how to pull them out and reverse them. I use it standing, but I did try it sitting and when you turn it around as the manual says it changes the angle of the pedals to be more suited for sitting. I recommend that until you get use to it you have a chair close buy in case you lose your balance. I did this at first but now that I'm use to it , I don't have to.
I love the small size, as I don't live in a large home and space is limited. I mainly use this in the evening when watching tv. I do other forms of exercise daily but find this is so nice in the evening rather than just sitting there I get an extra workout in. I am glad I bought it and I love the orange color.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KKAK Highly recommended!
I bought this a month ago and love it! I've even had multiple coworkers buy this. It's easy to do, quiet, light weight, and a nice workout!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aadi Very Nice Calorie burner
I bought this machine due to its small size since it will fit any place as I like.
Its a good calorie burner than I expected. My first thought when I bought this was a replacement for my gym day if there is any snow or rain; but this turned to be a good surprise as it provides a good workout at home itself. So now I'm thinking of skipping Gym more often :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nikki22 Keeps me moving at work
I am happy with this while sitting down at my desk. It gives me constant movement. I can do it all day or just a quick push now and then.
I've used it standing a few times, It is a little more difficult. It is definitely not as smooth as a large machine. A little jolty, I think if you are going to use it standing, maybe get the extra arm bands.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BTR227 Compact and Smooth Running
I have a desk job and I thought this would be great to keep under my desk. I tried it out at home using it in a standing position and liked it so much, I just ordered a second one so I can have one at work and one at home!
