Similar to other reviews, my husband found the instruction manual ridiculously unhelpful and hard to follow. However, he also said that regardless, the treadmill was easy to put together. It's very straight ford to use and works well with speed control (kms/hr), distance walked, time and calories burned. I really just needed a treadmill that I could use in winter at home while pregnant and this did the trick. Delivery was extremely fast as well (only took two/three days).
