The elliptical itself is wonderful. I use an elliptical daily and was very nervous about purchasing online without trying first. I am very happy with the machine and how smooth and quiet it is. With that being said, I would not recommend purchasing from Sears. They have outsourced their customer service and their delivery/assembly. I had nothing but issues. Machine was assembled by them, but there were a couple of pieces (washers) missing which caused the machine to break 4 minutes into my first workout. Had to have a friend fix, as I was unable to reach an agreement regarding a repair time with Sears. Also if you return there is a 15% restocking fee. This is the short version of the story, wasted at least 3 hours on the phone with customer service. Stick to a sporting goods store.
I use it 5 days a week, I love the automatic inclination and resistance.
Use this elliptical everyday for the past 2 years. Love it!!
So far the elliptical has worked great. Easy to use and it does make you sweat! It only has a few programs, though, and it has dedicated buttons for an optional ifit module, with demos of some weight loss & training programs which are better than the ones in the machine, but since they're demos, you only get one specific level & duration. I think the machine should have those programs as part of its default programming, and let iFit offer they're virtual coach and "street view" runs separately. A decent weight loss program should be offered by the machine without the need to buy the iFit module and a yearly subscription.
I use it everyday.
