This equipment will definitely give one a workout, but the striding, with its narrow range of motion mimics a bicycle not the elyptical. The angle of the foot plates does not change with rotation and puts stress on the ankle when in a standing posture. And, as others indicated, balance can be a problem (especially with the condensed range of motion.
I received mine, but when I opened the box, I found no assembly hardware. No screws, nuts, or bolts.
Dearest wootstaff - is there something that can be done to resolve this short of me shipping it back? Thanks!
