Comments: I'm writing this review after 2 months of use. I took my time putting the machine together, since I did it by myself. it was easy to follow the instructions. I got rid if the packing first and transported the parts to another room for assembly. I broke the task into each section listed. It went well that way. The machine is heavy duty. Handles my tall, heavy body type well. make sure the machine is level and the orange nobs are tightened well before first use. I put plenty of grease on parts during assembly. Friction is minimal during use. I use manual setting the most. I've been using the machine daily except for a couple days. Sometimes twice a day. Highly recommended!
Innovative design and time-tested engineering gave rise to the ACT Elliptical, delivering smooth, sturdy performance at nearly half the length of other ellipticals. A center drive not only reduces the footprint, but centers the user over the drive mechanism for exceptional stability and less stress on knees and other joints. Combined the adjustable stride length with a console loaded with 1-Touch™ digital features, 22 digital resistance levels and 26 built-in workout apps, this elliptical makes it easy to get a low-impact, total body workout.
