Comments: It comes in a huge box and assembly took about 2 hours. The manual states that two people are needed to put this thing together - I think two people are needed just to lift the thing. Anyhow, I couldn't wait for another person so I put it together alone and it was pretty simple - by the way, I am a male, 5'11" and 210lbs.The Audiostrider 990 works great, I couldn't be happier. It has intense workouts from beginner to advanced and the power incline is worth the extra money as it allows for a better workout without stopping. It is for the most part silent, the only noise comes from the monitor and when the power incline is at work, which is not that loud. The fan is convenient if your tall enough and the MP3 jack plugs into my Zune and Sansa just fine producing great sound from the mounted speakers, the volume is controlled by the MP3 player. I also like the IFit card that acts like your own personal trainer. I have only used the demo it comes with but I am considering buying one from the IFit website.All in all, I recommend this elliptical whole heartedly.
Workouts are even better with the all new AudioStrider 990 elliptical that features a new 18" to 20" stride length. The stride adjusts from 18" to 20" as you increase the incline up to 30% so you get even more muscle recruitment in each motion. Our legendary smooth motion is still intact as well as all of the features that made the last AudioStrider 990 our most popular elliptical.
