These are great! I have replaced the sweet tea I used to drink every morning, which was 100+ calories per serving, with one of these packets mixed in cold water (total of only 5 calories per serving), and I have plenty of energy and am not starving all morning. My favorite flavor is Raspberry Citrus, but all 3 flavors are good.
The only reason I do not give five stars is because it is not silent but it is pretty quiet and for under $100 it's one of the decade's best bargains. First let me say that I am a 53 year old female and in fairly good shape. My main exercise is walking - I walk five miles at least four times a week (also use my bike to run errands and shop). I wanted something to do on my no-walk days that would work different muscles. The Gazelle is fun and not difficult or unpleasant so of course I'm thinking "this can't be doing any good". No Pain No Gain right? But walking doesn't hurt and is enjoyable too and it does plenty of good so why can't the Gazelle be fun and still effective? I do 30 - 40 minutes on the Gazelle about three times a week, sometimes to a TV program and sometimes to music. When working out to music the Gazelle is exceptionally accomodating in that you can adjust your pace and stride to match ANY tempo. You can really go at it on this thing or you can take it easy. I like being able to alter the intensity. The fact that it is pleasant and enjoyable is more important than you might think - the more fun it is the more apt you are to use it and I don't care how expensive or "efficient" a piece of equipment is if you don't enjoy using it eventually YOU WON'T and how much good will it do then? The Gazelle will be your buddy, not the enemy sitting there waiting to punish you. I have rigged mine up with padded cotton on the foot platforms and cotton socks pulled over the handles so that I can just get on barefoot with no preparation whatsoever and go. All I'm in contact with is cotton which feels really good when you heat up. Hands up high on the handles and you are getting a good upper body workout, hands in the middle section and you are sharing the load between upper and lower body, hands low down and your legs are doing most of the work. As fun and easy as it is when I get off my legs are wobbly so I know for certain that I have been exerting myself. You can work out in many ways like others have said in their reviews - twisting, leaning forward or back, bending you knees, up on your toes, etc. I didn't get a video but lively music will spur you to move in new and creative ways if you get into it. It's like dancing! I did not bother with the electronic read-out thing - it looks pretty useless to me. The clicks and squeaks (and yes I made sure all connections were tight) are not that bad, you can still easily watch TV or listen to music. I have my TV watching/CD playing device right smack in front of my face when I am on the Gazelle, as close as it can be considering the forward swing of the pedals. The whole thing is a simple system of frame and swinging foot platforms suspended by cables - NO PISTONS TO HEAT UP AND LEAK. If there are animals in your house that don't have enough sense to stay away from the Gazelle when you are using it (you know the type) you will want to put your Gazelle in a room or area that can be closed off. Frame tubing is fat and comes in a nice looking silvery gray finish. It's not what would be considered compact so you will need plenty of floor space - at least 34" wide and 74" long to allow for full swing. One reviewer mentioned clips that would hold the foot platforms against the tubing when folding the Gazelle but I have yet to find those on mine, maybe I have a different model. Personally I am really glad that I do not have to fold and store mine, it's heavy and big and I'm certain I'd never use it if I had to go through that much trouble. I highly recommend the Gazelle for people who have the space to keep it up and the time to use it for at least 30 minutes several times a week. I had knee pain from a step machine but I do not have knee pain from the Gazelle.
Comfortable on my ear, but it doesn't "hug" my ear the way I wish it would. Everyone can hear me, and I can hear them (but it is slightly better if I wedge a small amount of tissue around it to better fit my ear. Wireless hookup was effortless, and talk time is huge, more than 6 hours on a charge. Only other criticism is the non-standard connector. I'm one of those people who almost never buys non-standard connectors (because I lose them), but the reviews of the Plantronics were so far beyond anyone else's product that I bought it and FOUR spare cables (Plantronics to USB), and put one in my briefcase, one in my camera bag, one in the car, one in the house, and keep the original in the office. So far, so good.
Great product. I have it on my 2013 Tacoma. The installation was simple and quick. Thanks to others that let me know to purchase the extended hitch bolt for Tacomas. So far it has kept weather out and keys safe.
I haven't finished reading it but even with my accounting background and knowledge to do friends taxes...This book as been a wealth of knowledge.
Purchased this product from Costco since I heard it advertised on the radio and how well it works. I applied it per directions as to mix and mopped it to my composite deck that had mildew. After a late summer and fall season of rain, about 2-1/2 months worth, it cleaned to like new. I Also used it on vinyl siding with a garden sprayer. My north facing siding here in Huntley Ilinois is subjected to strong winds and had become extremely dirty. Again after 2-1/2 months it came out like new siding. Power washing is a no no as it will destroy the finish and this is why I used Wet and Forget. I can't understand the reported issues of not working since I have over three years of use in various applications, have found it to be a real time and money saver that has worked just fantastic for me.
