I'm an Army veteran with 30 years of service that left me pretty broken from the waist down with screws in my feet and ankles, and I never thought I'd be able to achieve this level of fitness again. The Bellicon helped me get back in control of my health - i've lost weight, toned up and lowered my blood pressure - all within the 1st month I had it. I work it into every day even if it's just for 10 minutes (although I usually go a lot longer just because I enjoy it). I'd had a Cellerciser previously, but that was like jumping on a concrete floor compared to the Bellicon. Thanks for military discount - it helped me get into it a whole lot sooner!
