Comments: 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 saver'. No wobbles like you find on ellipticals at the Big Box stores or brand department stores. This guy is solid. Heart rate display upon demand is right on target with my chest band equipment but all you do is hold on to check it out. Wife works at the 18" stroke distance and I at the 22" so it fits both of us in our stride. You don't need the long shaft sliders used in standard ellipticals with NordicTrack and their genius-designed enclosed pulley system. NordicTrack calls this a 'revolutionary elliptical exerciser. I agree completely. A.C.T. provides an impressive selection of features that far exceed the 'grunt' gym or the 'big-box' offerings. Five Stars and congratulations to NordicTrack. I'll be ordering my second A.C.T. for the Florida home soon . . . you can count on that.
