    I bought it two months ago and must've used it 12 times since. For about one month, I was waiting on delivery and then parts to assemble it.

    Now evidently, the store doesn't offer warranty for fitness equipment after 30 days, the cocksuckers. Additionally, I was supposed to have been informed that the particular model I purchased was considered "lower grade" and for use only for senior citizens. Obviously, no one made any mention of that when I bought it. Why the hell would I purchase it otherwise?

    I wasn't told any of this, so naturally, I'm furious. They'd better find a way to refund, replace or repair this machine because I don't like throwing 400$ in the garbage bin.

    Anyway, just wanted to vent and offer some advice to fitness crew: DON'T BUY SUB-1000$ FITNESS EQUIPMENT... YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. :wtc: :hs: :squint:

    Is it in yet?
    Customers don't listen to salesmen anyways. Most think that the differences are in the name and "bells and whistles" only.

    No shit dumbass, you obviously did no research before buying the equipment if you honestly thought you could get a decent new elliptical for $400.

    Also, any salesman who was worth a shit would been trying to sell you a more expensive unit. This is all on you bro.

    Yup, I'm definitely chalking that one up to lack of research. Just thought I'd pass that little pearl on to anyone else who was thinking of buying one in that price range...

    Could have bought a good pair of running shoes and a warm winter hat for a quarter of the price, and they would still be working.
