Cheap Price, Cheap Quality

"My husband and I were very excited to find an elliptical for such a great price however after using it a half a dozen times each there was noise coming from the back motor as well as the arms as they moved up and down. Also, where the arms attach to the back motor the rubber support has completely worn off. Another thing is that the legs are pretty far apart on this elliptical which makes it slightly uncomfortable to use. Will be returning to the Costco Warehouse asap and buying something that is better quality."

Disappointed

Pros: power incline decent fan
Cons: rough and noisy
"Could not use while others were trying to sleep. After less than 2 weeks this thing squeaked, clicked and clunked so bad I had to take it back.
Too bad the overall quality of bearings and bushings made using it so annoying. My 3rd elliptical in 15 years. This was to be a step up - not so.

Great Customer Service!!

"We purchased this from the warehouse and had an issue with it right out of the box. We contacted the company (Icon) by email and were contacted the very next day. Two days later, we had a technician on site. We needed to order a minor part that was missing from assembly and it arrived quickly and the technician came and fixed it in a couple days. It was excellent service!
The elliptical itself seems to be very well made and was relatively easy to assemble. The stride feels good, the machine is quiet and the fan is way stronger than the fans on other home-use equipment.
I would definitely recommend (especially at the cash and carry price we paid)."

Not too happy

"We've beeen very excited after buying this product from the local COSTCO. Assembly was OK but the incline function never worked; stuck on 20degrees. We called service, Icon Canada, that sent a technician. He came three times, changed the controller, motor drive, other parts but never managed to make it work. In top of that he wasn't able to assemble it the way it was. I am sure he didn't know what he was doing. In fact he acknowledgeg that he's never been trained on that product. We had no choice but to return it. Boy... that was very complicated, the thing is huge."

Great Machine

"I was also worried after reading a couple of poor reviews but a friend of mine who already purchased it told me it was great so i took the dive.... and no regrets! This machine took about 2 hours to assemble (by pictures only as it was written in Spanish only) and voila! It is very quiet and sturdy. I weigh 220+ LBS and this thing is SOLID and QUIET. I love it, best fitness equipment purchase I have ever made! Just make sure you assemble it properly or you may have issues as I suspect the poor reviews did..."

THE BEST ELLIPTICAL ON THE MARKET - FOR SURE !!

Pros: easy to use, quite and sturdy, comfortable, great value for the money
Cons: took some time to assemble, it is big - took 2 people to get it in the house
"I looked at a lot of units before settling on this one. For the money, it is the best value on the market by far !! It is really solid - no wobbles - and VERY quiet. The coolest feature is the ifit feature. A heads up, like other reviews - it does take a couple of hours to assemble it - especailly if you follow the manual instruction line by line. The unit is pretty big - very much like the units i have used in the gym. I highly recommend this unit !"
