Excellent machine, quiet and stable
By BluesShrink (Westchester, NY) on Apr 10, 2009
I needed a workout machine in my home with a few requirements. I wanted an elliptical because I am middle aged and needed non-impact machine, space was an issue, there was going to be more than one user of the machine and I didn't want to pay for a top of the line machine. After trying out a few ma... (Read more)
Love This Machine!
By Jersey Jenn (Sayreville, NJ) on Apr 17, 2009
I love everything about this machine! The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because it doesn't have miles, but rather revolutions. But other than that, the machine is well built and perfect for in-home use. It came in 4 business days. The floormat arrived 2 days after the machine did.
Well designed, professional grade machine

I have used a ConceptII rower since 1986 and beleive that I got a good aeorobic workout.However, after using various elipical machines in hotels I decided to make the switch. After doing some reseach, I purchased the A.C.T.Lots of parts, but manageable. It made the clanking noise, but was fixed wit... (Read more)
Ifit makes it
By Harry (New Jersey) on May 7, 2009
I have been using the act elliptical for a month now with Jillian Michaels lose weight 1 card. The machine is sturdy and preforms well. The big difference between using machines at the gym and this one is the ifit software. It is challenging, very good workout. I use it 4 times a week with no proble... (Read more)

I just assembled mine and used it the first time and found the common clunking noise as the right pedal reaches the forward position, and occasionally the left one will too. Who has found the solution? Please share with me: email@example.comNot quite I burned 1040 calories in a 50 minute wor... (Read more)
No iPod Dock, Otherwise a nice machine
By Elliptical Newbie (Greenville, SC) on Jun 18, 2009
We just got our A.C.T. elliptical yesterday, and I put it together last night. The assembly was fairly easy and well-documented, though not for the mechanically faint-of-heart. The machine is well-built - very solid, quiet, and smooth. My wife and I gave it a try this morning, and we both liked the ... (Read more)

Great machine, but...
By Idaho (Buffalo, NY) on Jun 22, 2009
My wife and I ordered this machine, and along with it purchased a seperate workout program. We were told the "trainer" will call and get the specifics, and set up a program designed for one of us. Received the machine, great packing job, all parts were there. Set it up, did some of the pre-progra... (Read more)

Smooth and quite. Everything I wanted. Putting it together was a pain, but well worth it.
I love this!
By Chrys007 (DFW, TX) on Jul 2, 2009
I ordered my ACT Elliptical about a month ago. I was surprised at how many pieces there were in the box, but I put it together all by myself in about 2 hours. That was a workout in its own right!Like one other reviewer, I had put the feet on wrong and was rather frustrated until I figured out what I... (Read more)

My congratulations to Nordic for producing a 'do it setup yourself' that is so simple even a ....... well, you know the line. I've been putting things together for 40+ years and this is the first (yes, the first) time I've followed the amazingly clear instructions and did not forfeit my religion. ... (Read more)
Some noise fixed with great customer service
By Mark (West Hills, CA) on Aug 4, 2009
I had a very good customer service experience in both ordering the product, having it professionally assembled and later having some noise issues resolved. The ACT is a very good machine with some very good features. The only thing I would change is the programmable settings to allow different times... (Read more)
By kwizeacre (St Louis, MO) on Jul 14, 2009
I am so happy with my choice. I reviewed several machines before deciding on this one. I chose this one over others because they were having an excellent price on it as well as the reviews I read online. My husband put it together in about 2 hours with no problems. I was also pleased with the de... (Read more)
Great machine but a few minor cons
By Nickname (Akron, Ohio) on Jul 23, 2009
I purchased this model at the sale price which I noticed they seem to have often. So far I am very pleased with this machine but it does have a few faults. The Dual-Grip EKG Heart Rate Monitor is about useless as it doesn t seem accurate enough to rely on. The Coolaire Workout fan is okay for taller... (Read more)

The delivery was on time, and in good condition. Heavy box left in garage. I opened the box, took it piece by piece to my basement. Installation took about 2 hours. Needed help when connecting wires, but otherwise quite easy with the instructions. Apply grease as instructed to make it smooth. Be car... (Read more)

Having used ellipticals for the past 4 years - mostly at "the" gym for grunts I'm qualified to say "YES, JUST LIKE THE BIG GUYS". With 20+ programs to pick from that come built into the equipment you can have the time of your life. Beginner thru Advanced, and all on this smooth operating 'life sav... (Read more)
A good investment
By Joe (Moscow, PA) on Sep 3, 2009
I wanted to wait until I had the elliptical for a solid week before I left my review. Overall, this is a quality machine. Compared to other elliptical machines, the overall footprint is much smaller. It is a bit wider, however much shorter in length. It's not hard to squeeze this thing in a corne... (Read more)
A Terrific Home Unit
By taxwiz (Manzanita, OR) on Oct 24, 2009
I have gone to the gym for 10+ years using the various ellipical units each has had available for its members. This unit does almost EVERYTHING the gym club units with no travel time. It does not raise so you feel like you walking up hill however with the 20 different resistant levels you do not ne... (Read more)
