I got this trainer the day after it was ordered. On opening the box, I immediately noticed that the trainer was a quality item. It was very quickly assembled, using the supplied tools. I used it for the first time, whilst sitting on my favourite leather couch. In doing an exercise lasting 15 minutes, I was able to continue watching TV. Furthermore, the trainer stayed firmly in one place, during its use. Because the trainer is so quiet in operation, it has no impact on other activities. You can use it watching TV, whilst on the phone or on the computer etc. The digital display which shows distance, calories, time etc, is easily read, and easy to use. Although this trainer is more expensive than other trainers, it is still good value. As it is a quality item, which is well worth the purchase price. Need less to say, I am delighted with this purchase and the Amazon buying process. I would definitely recommend this trainer.
