After thoroughly researching the field with the diligence I learned as an aircraft engine design engineer, I concluded that the MagneTrainer is the best made, designed and constructed small exercising machine, at a very reasonable price, on the market. Now that I have received my machine and used it, I am convinced that I had done a good job of comparing every machine that I could uncover by an extensive search and strongly recommend the unit to anyone interested in a versatile exerciser that is well made, compact and efficient. I have yet to see how durable it will prove to be but, based on what I could see without a complete disassembly and analysis, the design and materials look great! It was an outstanding value and living proof that shopping on the web can extremely effective if one has the patience and perseverance required to do a thorough job.
No worries, no hassles, no delays, great exercise machine. Therapy says that I can not use it with my legs yet, but what a workout you get just with your arms. I have the machine on a table. My therapist has one and recommended that I get a Magnetrainer. Very smooth and quiet; and very stable with the wide legs.
“Just wanted to let you know that my husband loves his new MagneTrainer. You should see him go-go-go all evening on it while he’s watching TV. It’s such a great way to combat the ‘couch-potatoes’. Thanks so much for your well-made product.”
I just wanted to say how much I am loving my Magnetrainer! I have had it for two weeks, and have been steadily cycling about 40 miles a day under my desk at work! It has been wonderful! It is the quietest machine, no one hears it or knows I’m using it! I love that the display does not reset unless I press the button, so I can bicycle on and off all day, and then look at my total at the end of the day! On thing to note is, the timer only goes up to 99 minutes and 59 seconds, and after that, its starts over. However, the calories and distance continue counting. This isn’t a problem at all for me. Based on my distance, I quickly know if the machine shows 20 minutes, I quickly know if I actually went 120 minutes or 220 minutes. For example, right now it shows 41.3 miles, 1515 calories, and 30.27 minutes….but I actually know its 230.27 minutes, because that’s what I average after a full day. I would recommend this product to anyone! I love it, my employees are all going to buy one, I am sleeping better at night, my legs are feeling more toned, and I think it has given me more energy at work! Thank you for making such a fine product!
Great buy! Perfect for my needs. I have COPD and need this to workout on my arm strength. I have been using one at the Pulmonary Rehab Center. This one works every bit as well as the $1,200 model at rehab. And now that I have this and my treadmill and bike – I’ve quit going to rehab and workout at home. My schedule and no driving. Saves me money and time. I would recommend this item highly.

I purchased a MagneTrainer for my 87-year-old mother, who was recently treated for a debilitating varicose vein. Her doctor told her to “walk, walk, walk” to hasten her recovery and to avoid similar damage to her other veins. Needless to say, that advice isn’t practical for an elderly lady, especially in the wintertime. The MagneTrainer has proven to be a remarkably therapeutic alternative to “hoofing it”–and something she actually enjoys using while reading her newspaper every morning . She’s also developing a regular exercise habit that should serve her well in the months and years ahead. Had the MagneTrainer been noisy, awkward, uncomfortable or difficult to use (as are so many other mini-cycles), Mom would have abandoned it after its first use. The MagneTrainer is now on my own wish list.
I am writing you to tell you that I am so glad that I chose the MagneTrainer. I worried that all those testimonials might not represent the product but they truly do. I’ve been using the bike everyday going ten miles with my legs and five with my arms. I voiced my concerns about purchasing the bike since I am confined to a wheelchair and one of my legs is not mobile, however, I have had no problems with the pedals and the Velcro straps. also, I thought I would need my sons help in putting it together but I’m happy to say that this senior was able to put it easily together. I highly recommend this cycle bike to all. It is so quiet that I am able to use it as we all watch TV. I give this 5 stars easily! sincerely,
I did a considerable amount of research prior to purchasing a stationary bike for my wife, who has undergone knee surgery. I purchased the MagneTrainer Professional Exerciser. It arrived today (fast shipment), and I assembled it (five minutes). I am extremely impressed by the quality of your product! It was packaged well, obviously manufactured with heavy-duty materials, and very easy to assemble. Even the “throw-away” tool supplied was superior to those included in other products. I have never taken the time and effort to provide positive feedback before, but I am so impressed with this product, I just wanted to tell you not to change anything!

Item was well packaged and promptly delivered. The Magnetrainer has exceeded my expectations. It is sturdy, quiet and I found it simple to assemble. While I use it for my upper body alone, I am more than satisfied and would surely recommend it to anyone who is searching for a small machine that is very stable.
I purchased this so that I could “cycle” at work. I have a very sedentary desk job and needed something that could increase my heart rate and help with circulation and begin to change my metabolism. It is very sturdy and quiet and when applying the magnetic tension it has the potential to get the heart rate up. I would recommend it to anyone!
I LOVE your cycle, and in fact I NEED it. I am an English professor with endless papers to grade, research to do, etc., and I concentrate better when I am moving, just like some fidgety kids do. Sometimes I wonder how I got my PhD without the MagneTrainer! It is also great to be able to maintain some fitness when I am too busy for my usual tennis, and the muscles you can work with the MagneTrainer are important ones for cross-country and downhill skiing, too.

Can’t say enough about this little stress-buster. I’m a working mom with 2 toddlers at home and a stressful 50+ hour work-week and just don’t have time for the gym. I found this is a great way to burn some calories and stress and get a good cardio workout while I’m parked at my desk at work. It took a little maneuvering to get comfortable – I would not recommend using a chair with wheels or rotating seat and you’ll need to give yourself some clearance from the desk because your legs won’t clear the desktop. I also have to put a small fan on so I don’t get too hot. It’s amazingly quiet, has a strap you attach to your chair to keep it in place, and has a great display setting (calories, distance, time, speed) that keeps track until you reset it. I’m sorry I waited so long to get this!
If you spend any amount of time in front of a computer or TV, you should probably buy one of these. I purchased mine last week, and made a personal rule that if I want to play video games I have to be on it the entire time. Only a week later I feel healthier, happier, skinnier, and if I keep it up for the rest of my life I’m sure that I will live longer because of it! My favorite thing about the magnetrainer is that I now feel productive even when I’m doing a stationary, time-wasting thing like playing video games. Other than making me sweaty, it’s easy to forget that I’m working out and play for hours. It also doesn’t adversely effect my gaming experience, even playing competitive reaction based games like Modern Warfare 2, MAG, and Bad Company 2. I don’t usually write reviews, but I can’t possibly make a stronger recommendation for a product because this one actually has the potential to change lives. My wife has sort of commandeered it for the past couple days (to use while watching TV), so I might have to buy another one… Everything else you need to know has been said in other reviews – it’s small, sturdy, quiet, has adjustable resistance. It doesn’t move at all on my laminate flooring, even without the included velcro strap. This thing should legally required for all couch potatoes. On another note, I had to contact customer support with a shipping question which they resolved instantly, so they also get five stars in that category.
