Needed to get fit and lose weight hence the purchase of this treadmill. Took our time putting this together but got there in the end. Not too bad to assemble but you definitely need 2 people. It's simple to use if all you want to do is run, but there are also some quite advanced programmes on there too. With the ifit live module plugged in and set up there are tons of features like being able to run on courses mapped out on your PC using google maps. The only thing that would be useful to add would be to have the speed and incline change on the handlebars as when running at high speed it would be easier to control. Overall we use the machine everyday and are really impressed the build quality and the ifit features. Good value for Money.
