5.0 out of 5 stars great machine, May 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Livestrong LS8.0E Elliptical (Sports)
I researched a lot of ellipticals within the budget I had and finally pulled the trigger on the livestrong ls8.0e and feel I made a great choice! A year ago I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and diabetes and couldn't walk up a flight of stairs. I started out on a treadmill and after six months I felt I wasn't getting enough of a workout. The livestrong elliptical gives me great cardio with several programs and levels of resistance. Combined with some weight training I feel the best I've felt in 20 years and my blood pressure and diabetes are well in check. The product was easy to assemble and is very quiet compared to my treadmill and has a very good warranty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aerobic time, March 11, 2013

This review is from: Livestrong LS8.0E Elliptical (Sports)
At first when I used it the machine kept making this knocking sound. I was like ok it's not loud, but annoying. After day 2 the sound left completely. It is a smooth machine, fun to use. I hooked an audio cable to the jack and was able to talk hands-free on the cell. The fan is good also. The only thing that was an issue was the location of the cup holder. I don't use it cause I hydrate before working out, but for others it might be a problem. Other than that I love my investment.

Solid, smooth and quiet. Five stars.

I bought this model instead of the 10.0 or 13.0 for the simplicity. I bought this brand instead of some others because it seemed more solid and because it fit my other user better: the feet are closer together and the handles are closer to the user (for standing up straight). I'm happy with this spacing and with this elliptical movement too; some other brands feel more like a stepper (some front-drive brands) or bounce up and down too much (some rear-drive brands).

Assembly is straightforward, just follow the instructions one step at a time. Everything is labeled and/or illustrated and all tools are included. If you're working alone, when it's time to pull the wires through the vertical mast set a chair beside the flywheel, facing the flywheel, and lay the mast across your knees to do this.

(Assuming you maintain a safe heart rate) the best readout for monitoring how hard you're working is Watts (power) because it... Read more
