The assembly was easy and I was able to do it without help. It has operated well even with daily use and folds reasonably easily. The placement of the wheels to roll it into a storage corner or space is a little perplexing though. Since the running belt folds up toward the console it would have made sense to have the wheels in the front but no ... theyre in the rear which makes moving it once folded a little difficult. Other than that I have no complaints I get a gym-quality walkrun on this machine and recommend it.
