The worst machines

I know there are all types of products on the market, but has anyone here bought a machine they regretted? Did you return it and get your money back? We only bought one and for a while it actually helped but I wanted something that helped to burn more so we kind of upgraded. We sold the last one for about 1/2 of the purchase price and spend maybe fifty bucks extra on the new one.

What did you buy?

I have a rowing machine in the spare room that has only been used about 3 times LOL. I prefer the gym ones, the home ones just don't seem to compare.

The only machine I've bought is an exercise bike. I don't use it as much as I should but I keep promising myself I will!

From what I have read the difference between the machines at home compared to those in the gym is all about the money and the tech behind it. Gyms are paying for the beefiest upgrades out there. The one I had was the Gazelle, I lost about twenty pounds on it but it took far too long.

I bought a Pro-Form 400 ZLE Elliptical / cross trainer. It was AWFUL 3 hours to build and it broke twice well actually it was broke from the start, resistant wasn't working then when they fixed it (no rush) it started squeaking and clicking, the guy didn't know what was wrong with it when I rang up about it they said they would only exchange it for the same model, why would I want the same when it's clearly CRAP (excuse my language lol) so I asked were they going to spend the 3 hours building it... no! So while I was waiting on their decision it went back to the place purchased from... 2 month later I got a call to let me know they decided they needed to exchange the machine and not try to repair it, 2 months later? Madness! My money has been better spent on the gym!
