I have had my Classic 49" Bellicon since 2012. I was initially afraid I wouldn't use it often enough to justify purchasing it. I was (am) a runner and an advanced exerciser. I thought this would end up being "not challenging enough". I was wrong! I can get as intense of a workout as I want.....or have a nice recovery workout...whichever I want for the day. I love that if I am achy before I get on the Bellicon....by the time I get off of it I feel like a totally different person.
I own a treadmill, an elliptical and a spinning bike but it seems that the Bellicon is getting more and more use as the years go on. I am so glad I purchased it.
