    Best cardio machine in our family gym or our YMCA. I have a knee that I injured in college sports, but my knee is pain free after a 45 or 50 minute workout on the Power Plus. The resistance level on this Power Plus is adjustable making it adaptable to each member of our family. I can break a sweat in only two minutes into a workout, so hello! I bought this machine one year old for a song, and it preforms excellent. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their health.
