    "Whether you need to fully work on your hamstrings or a full body workout the proform machine does not disappoint. The resistance at the medium setting is already heavy which will make me take my workout up a notch in the future. It is also great that I am not making any racket while working out on this machine.

    "This is a really handy machine that I have no problem using anytime I have any free time at home. Watching netflix with my hubby? do a bit of a workout. Doing telemarking from my home office? do some workout. This thing is small and light enough to carry anywhere. One thing I did notice is the rusty noise the pedals make overtime. "

    "Was happy with getting the e35 among the rest of the elliptical machines for home use. The LCD display was bigger than the one I am used to. Getting a good grip on the pedals and the handles let me grip the machine in different ways. As someone who uses different elliptical machines, i have to point out the motion of this machine which does not feel natural that I feel some pressure on my back. "

    "The machine feels solid and sturdy the moment I stepped on it and just started walking. It even has a usb plug for my phone so that i can listen to my playlist. Would be great if there is a holder so that I can easily watch my shows too. The lcd screen can be a monitor. One thing I did not like is the possition of the handles that is close to my body and is straining my knees. "

    "To start off. This is a really pricy exercise machine and it took me way too much time to piece everything together. Once I got it up and running, it is a luxury machine. I tried many exercise bikes and walking machines. This feels like the kind of elliptical machines for home of the one percent. The bars give a good resistance and the fan is a nice touch. "

    "Given the price, this is not a bad starter exercise machine for people on a budget. As a starter machine, the resistance from this thing feels light than other machines. This is also not that machine for heavy people. "

    "This took me by surprise when I used it. I was not expecting the resistance from this machine when I start walking on it. I'm also happy with the screen telling me how many calories I burn away. I keep using the machine every day after waking up and before going to bed. but recently, it starts to make that horrid squeeking sound that it is disturbing my partner in bed when I use it. "

    "Comparing this to other ellipticals for home use back at the shop, this one is small enough to fit in my bedroom. The resistance from this machine hits the right level even on the medium setting. Got to dock a score from this machine because of the movement I make. I cant make those wide steps with this elliptical step. "
