I find it does a good job though mine has something like 10 different resistance levels. And if I'm not mistaken, lower intensity workouts burns more percentasge of fat than it does sugar.
And Rajah, I tore the cartilage in my left knee, aswell as spraining my ACL, not fun at all. Knee still bothers me on some days. And just as a kicker, I've had problems with the achilles tendon on the same leg
