I love Tony Little & his products. I own the gazelle also so thought this would be worth trying. It took 1.5 hours to assemble alone...looked far worse lying in the box then it really was. I was initially intimidated so let it sit for 2 weeks.Haven't worked out enough to tell yet but it does engage many muscles at once as well as increase heart rate so results should come with regular use.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love it, but...
By Frequent Shopper
Took me less than an hour to put together and we love that it really is silent. A great workout.The electronic timer malfunctions constantly which is part of the but...the other is that the holes do not line up for the adapter to add weights so having to deal with getting the replacement isn't exciting.This product is easy to use, engages many muscle groups at one time for a full cardio workout.

Twist and Shout!
from London, Ontario
I bought this product recently and have used it daily since that time. It gets the heart pumping and the sweat dripping, too early for results yet but I can say I feel more limber..so that's something! Assembly went well for myself but I am mechanical friendly. I did suggest making the videos iPad friendly and was told they are heading in that direction (you can do so yourself if you are tech friednly). So, overall I am pleased with the purchase!
Not as bad as they say!

Don't be put off by having to assemble this bike. My son put it together in 1 1/2 hours. I like the videos that come with the package. You may not feel anything while you are doing the exercise but the next day your muscles will be tighter. The time goes by fast with the videos. This machine just completed our home gym and I don't have to fight the cold, traffic or wait times. I enjoy this machine.
Excellant exerciser, the only problem
the product is excellant, but the assembly was very very time consuming, and very confusing, not everyone is handy, and for all the pieces, the instructions were not that good, still have figured out what to do with the magnet?????exerciser is a 5instructions were a 2, would recommend but have a handy man handy,,,,,,,,

This is perfect for my brother. He is 62 years old and has not been able to get around easily or exercise because of an injury and the Health Rider enables him to get a full body workout while sitting. He is so happy that I found this for him and is very hopeful that this will help with his recovery. And of course I have been using it too and I can already feel a difference!!

When I opened the box I was a bit discouraged however once I separated all the parts and got busy with the assembly it wasn't too bad. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and have added some weights for extra difficulty. Looking forward to getting back in shape without having to invest in a gym membership. Thanks Tony.

This Review is For Tony
By Queen of Diamonds
from Victoria (British Columbia)
When we received this HealthRider, the box suggested we were in trouble. We thought that if they got that machine into this box, nightmare ahead. Well we opened the box and the nightmare seemed worse. My partner said, no big deal, we can do it!!! I went upstairs to make tea and get some tools. I was gone about 20 minutes and when I got downstairs the HealthRider was 3/4 of the way done.I couldn't believe my eyes. All told, it took my partner 35 minutes for complete, perfect assembly. Looks and sounds a lot more intimidating than it is. It's a good solid piece of equipment and is truly silent.I'm the one the HealthRider was ordered for but we both love it and when the price comes down, as they all do, we'll order another one. It would be awesome to work out side by side. We'll both reach our goals with this machine because it really is fun. You can go at any comfortable pace and the machine will grow with you. The options are wonderful, Tony's DVD's are a joy and really helpful and motivational. I've always adored him and watch him whenever he's on, whether I'm buying or not. He has an awful lot to be proud of.All of you who have tried so many other machines out there and never got anywhere because you didn't enjoy working with them....try this one.It's different, it's fun and it really can get you out of a rut and into a healthy lifestyle. I haven't used the personal trainer number yet, but I will. This piece and Tony's DVD's that come with the HealthRider,have made me order his book "There's Always A Way." Try this machine because with Tony's infectious attitude, WE REALLY CAN DO IT. Enjoy it in the best of health.
Great for Home Exercise
from Oshawa, Ontario
I have been using the HealthRider ten minutes a day for two weeks now and I am already feeling tighter core muscles as well as stronger leg muscles. As a bonus, I have lost five pounds! It is very easy to incorporate into your daily routine as it doesn't require alot of your time and you don't have to travel outside of your home to a gym. So there is no excuse not to use it! I have two artificial hips and I have also undergone spinal surgery for scoliosis and spinal stenosis. I have been experiencing left leg weakness which has required me to use a cane for the last few years. When I finish just 10 minutes on the HealthRider, my leg feels stronger and my limp has diminished. The HealthRider is helping to improve my balance and stability as well as my core and leg muscle strength. I highly recommend it. Because of my hip replacements, I have to be careful of my hip flexion, and I find it easier to get on the HealthRider in a standing position, rather than sitting with my hips flexed more than 90 degrees. For people who have had hip replacements, I would not recommend it until you are at least 3 months post-op and off of hip precautions and for people with knee replacements, you should check with your physiotherapist first. My husband is a mechanic and he put it together in two hours. He said that it wasn't too bad (if you are 'mechanically inclined'). My only problem is I can't get the electronic monitor to work. It is supposed to come on when you start using the HealthRider, but I have to turn it on manually and it still just sits at zero. But, I just use a clock to time my workout. I am glad that I spent the money on it and I am looking forward to the health benefits that I am going to gain from using it daily.

Love this machine!!
from New Brunswick, Canada
I have only had this machine for 2 weeks and already starting to see results. Its alot of fun and time goes by quite fast while using it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to exercise in the privacy of their own home.
