This was easy to assemble, although it did take me 5 hours the direction was easy to follow step by step. I set this up by myself using the tools that was supplied in the package and took my time. Be patient! I suggest when taking it out of the box take the parts out and separate to better organize yourself for working space.As far as the Trio Trainer watch the video if you are a novice to learn how to use this, otherwise very easy to use and I am happy with my Trio Trainer.
I was really excited about this item, but it worked for less than 15 minutes. I ran 10 minutes one day just to test it out, and then the next day within 5 minutes it started thumping inside the case. It sounds like maybe the belt slipped. Sears offered to send someone out to look at it (great!) but when they realized it was Body Flex they said something about not being licensed to service Body Flex equipment and the manufacturer would. Body Flex and their warranty were useless - they'll replace parts, but they don't service the machine so unless you can diagnose the problem yourself or pay someone to look at it those 'free' replacement parts are useless. The woman I spoke with at Body Flex agreed it was probably the belt and if *I* wanted to open it up I could, but she was kind enough to warn me that would void any option to return it to the store. I really felt at that point I had no choice but to return an already-built machine to the store. Believe me, getting it into the car was no fun task. Sears was good about the return, but I'm disappointed all around because this was obviously a defective piece of equipment and it was on me to either pay to have it serviced or get it back to the store. I could see if I had it a while, but it was less than a week old and used for less than 15 minutes. I'm guessing mine was a dud, but no way am I trusting anything by Body Flex again.
It's ok for cardio rehab if you have lower back issues. Wish it was more adjustable. I will make a self to install my blood pressure machine so I can monitor my BP when exercising.
When we received it we opted out on having it delivered and installed or put together. But it was super easy to put together we followed the instructions and were able to put it together without any problems. I absolutely love this machine. No more gym membership for me. Although it could have been better if it had a cup holder for your drink and somewhere to plug in your ipod like my other machine.
Absolutely love it! It is wonderful to be able to go from a standing position to a sitting position without having to stop! I chose this product specifically because it allows me the ability of choosing between three different types of exercise, not just one type. Easy to learn the programs, and increase my workout when I want to. Couldn't be more happier that I made this purchase!
Very easy to assemble. Gives you multiple exercise options any many different resistance levels.
You can really get a good sweat on!
We purchased the Body Flex Body Power 3-In-1 Trio Trainer for our home gym and really love it. Its great that you have three workouts in one machine. Would recommend.
