My glider is an older model XL Glider that I bought from QVC many years ago. It languished in storage for a very long time. The biggest reason being that I was too heavy to use it. Anyhoozle, here is an updated version of mine. Mine doesn't have the thumb pulse thingie and is white. I paid about the same price as the model linked. This one is on evil pay, right now. If I remember correctly, it comes fully assembled. Just pull it out of the box, set it up and you are ready to go. It folds nice and flat so that you can stash it up against a wall or under a bed. Why anyone would want to stash one there, unless you wanted to forget it exists... lol I keep mine against the wall in my hall. It is out of the way and easy to get to when I am ready to use it.
You can get a good workout on a glider, if you go at it the right way. If you just glide along, resting your hands on the handles, it is like a nice stroll. If you grip the handles and really push and pull, letting your weigh create resistance, you can work the heck out of your legs, arms, shoulders and back. I set mine up in front of my TV, turn on something good to watch and go to it. :D
Thank you for your positive and supportive comments, everyone. they are really helping me to stay motivated. :D
