I bought this elliptical because I use a LifeFitness elliptical at the "Y" and feel that it "fits" my small body. Other brands try to pull my arms off and keep me off balance as their stride is too long and wide. I appreciate that the LifeFitness is not too large for my space at home and is quiet and easy to use. It is especially handy in icy weather when it is dangerous to walk to the "Y"--I can still work out and not feel guilty. : - ) My husband, a true "gym rat," also uses it and is happy with how easily it can be set for him.
