    May 7, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The right price for a starter exercise machine
    Cons: Doesn't hold up well over long-term, regular use

    Summary: The Purchase Back in the summer of 2000 or so, I had seen the OrbiTrek several times and began wondering if I could stick to a workout program if it were as fun as the infomercial made it look. They promised no stress on the joints and even had a ... read more

    Pros: Gets your heart rate up, easy to use, no mechanical problems.
    Cons: Assembly could put off some, not the highest quality, not exceptionally stable, weak customer support.

    Summary: I've been using the older model Orbitrek for at least four years now, and while it suits me just fine, I can understand why it wouldn't be accepted by hardcore exercisers. Without recapping others' reviews, which all sound reasonable, IMHO the unit is of ... read more
