This thing is heavy duty. No knocking noise or reliability problems for me. Just smooth performance. The salesman told me the mechanism has been improved for 2010. So far so good. I'm looking forward to trying ifit live in December when it comes out. The operator gave it to me cheap with the extende... (Read more)

I weighed 300 lbs. when I bought the machine. I chose this because of the improved flywheel. It's been very solid for me. No issues so far. Just plan on 2 hours to put it together. I needed 2 sets of hands in a few spots. Incredible machine that's very well made.
Shopped around and this one won out
By snowryder (Pacific Northwest) on Jan 15, 2010
It arrived and was easy to set up. Sure lots of parts, but instructions were easy to follow and while suggested two persons to set up, I was able to do it all by myself in just over an hours time. Once set up, I found a rubbing sound on the right side, by fly-wheel inside the cover. Located cause ... (Read more)

I like the elliptical very much
but the resistance on my machine
doesn't seem very difficult. I
keep the resistance on 20 at all times and it seems like there should be a lot more resisance than there is. I've had it since March, 2009. I've misplaced the manual. Is there anything I can do to ... (Read more)
Great machine, but...
By Kansas Rose (Kansas) on Feb 25, 2010
We received our eliptical about three weeks ago, and I have lost a little over ten pounds, so far. (Before getting this, I was walking on a treadmill for an average of an hour a day, five days a week, so I didn't go from no exercise to this.)
It took almost three hours to assemble, but the instruct... (Read more)

While I had an initial issue with a clanking noise, the tech came out and serviced it and now it appears ok. Product is built exceptionally well and performs smoothly and quietly. Great workout as well in about one-half the time. Both I and my wife enjoy using it and especially that it is low imp... (Read more)
Much Better Workout than Treadmill
By VMcDiarmid (Clawson, MI) on Oct 12, 2010
I feel the elliptical is much much harder than my treadmill and I absolutely hated it for the first month or so, but I like it now and it burns more calories than interval running on the treadmill for the same time period.

Big improvement over my old CX-938
By Wisconthin (Katy, TX) on Jan 5, 2011
This is a huge improvement over my old (discontinued) CX-938. And, I actually believe the stated calories burned on this machine. On the upside, I think a half-hour on this is a worth an hour on the old and NO MORE "D" cell batteries! On the downside, foot bars do not match up evenly with the roller... (Read more)

Well made machine, works smoothly and is very quiet. We love using the elliptical NT ACT Pro, and in 20 to 40 minutes you can get a great workout. The machine runs smoothly and is very quiet, so you can easily listen to music or watch TV while exercising.

I really enjoy the workouts. I am making steady gains, and feel that it was a very good investment in my overall well being. It is self motivating, to use the different workout programs.

Great Machine with good service
By Jamie (Las Angeles) on Nov 13, 2009
I'm very happy with the machine. I purchased the in home assembly with the machine because I'm not good with tools. It was worth it to have it put together right. I love the machine. My mom tried it out a week ago and bought one too.
