Top critical review
MOSTLY great, but do have some gripes.

Like many of you did, I bought this machine so I could get some cardio in during the lovely COVID-19 pandemic. I saw some of the reviews mentioned the fact that it was a beast of a machine, and let me tell you... they were right! I would say I am moderately active and this machine is just... BRUTAL. To give you an idea, I have been using this machine consistently every day now for 2 weeks. I begin getting tired at the 30 second mark. I'm exhausted at the one minute mark. The longest I've gone so far is two minutes lol. On day one I had a goal of doing 20 minutes LMAO. So in the cardio department I give it high praise.
I do have to take some points away since I bought it and didn't realize it didn't come with a base. I live at an apartment so it would be out of the question to fasten it to the wall. I was very disappointed to see you have to buy the base separately and even even MORE disappointed when I found out that the cost of the base (I paid 243.56 after shipping taxes) was OVER a quarter of the machines total value ($815). It's a piece of wood and a metal bar for crying out loud. It's not like the base itself is a machine. I wish they posted a caption in the photo that read "Base NOT included". Instead they have it in small print on here where I obviously missed it.
It was only moderately difficult to set up by myself (I would recommend using someone else if possible). Also, it doesn't use electricity so that's another bonus in my book. All and all it's a great machine, and I plan to get some use out of it during these crazy times.
