The (Cheap!) Workout Must-Have for People Who Hate Working Out

04/15/2013 at 06:00 AM ET

If you love spending money every month on going to the gym, this product is not for you. If however, you’re like us and want to get killer abs, a toned butt and svelte legs, but prefer being in your living room and watching your TV (as opposed to at a crowded gym) and would rather drop cash on something besides an overpriced membership, this product is most definitely for you.

The elliptical (order it by clicking on the product image below the video or going here) goes for $125, but if you enter our exclusive discount code (STYLE15), you can get it for 106 bucks.

It weighs just 24 pounds and is 20 by 12 inches so it’s easy to move around, plus it’s quiet, features adjustable tension controls to change the resistance, foot pedals that go forward or in reverse to target different muscle groups and a monitor to track your calories and distance. Basically, you’re getting everything those mega-ellipticals have, only you don’t have to spend over a grand to get it.

A handful of PEOPLE.com editors already have the elliptical and while each uses it while watching a different show, they all love it for the same reason: One moment you’re stepping on the machine, then the next, you realize Scandal (or House of Cards or Real Housewives) is over and you’ve been working out for a full hour.

Cool idea – for little people – clearly the rotation diameter is too small for an average adult! One can see that from the video…no wonder it’s marked down, but it’s not even worth the 76 bucks their asking!

When they design one for adults, I’ll consider the purchase and ONLY if it’s reasonable. No doubt somebody will.

I purchased this product, and on the box in big letters it says that in California there is a warning on it saying that it could cause cancer or birth defects. I am hesitant about using it. Does any one know more about this? I bought it to improve my health, not make it worse. Thanks.

Unfortunately, after visiting the Joyus website and reaching out to the customer service department, I was told that the elliptical is not on sale at $70. It is $125.00
