I love to use this while blasting fast club tunes, if you get going you can get a good sweat on and it will make your body shape up. Yes the thing tends to squeek,it has been oiled and the computer is rubbish. I need a new one as the resistance control is broken so its feels a bit to easy for me. So im looking for a new one, this is the best gadget ive tried that has actually worked. (read more)

We brought this unit around 3 years ago, was not cheap. Due to circumstances at the time it did not get used so much. Started to use it again around 2 months ago as I gave up smoking, so wanted something to help combat the weight gain. Only started slowly to build up, so around 10 minutes/day. I felt and could see the difference but then bang! ....What looks like a rotating collar which is attached to the foot rests has shattered leaving a mass of broken alloy material bits and several large...

I have had a stepper for about a year. I could thoroughly recommend it because it is such an easy piece of workout machine with easy manouveres to do, with such great benefits of shaping the body.
I do around 10-20 minutes a day, every morning seven days a week. I use my bike for 20 minutes a day in the evening too. If you use the stepper with any other exercise machines, you will see the weight fly off.
Stick to it, and you will see results in the first week :)
Try and aim for atleast 10... (read more)

I've been using a LTT for several years now and get a really good home work out from it. But please, like anything, read the instructions before you use it - it's all very well throwing yourself enthusiatically at your new piece of work out machinery but you're just going to end up doing yourself an injury which could easily be avoided. Warm up first (not just saying it, it's really important that you warm up and stretch out before you use your LTT or you could do some real damage to... (read more)

The problem is i have suspected for a while that the way in which your knee twists outwards everytime you step is not at all natural.It is not the same as skiing.rollerbooting etc as it twists your leg the other way.forcing more of the lower part of your leg to turn from the knee joint which isnt good.

I have found lateral thigh trainers a great means of home exercise. They can really build up a sweat especially the ones that come with tension cords so you can do a full body workout. They great if you not very motivated to do a lot of exercise because a couple of minutes a day will be enough to get your fitness levels up.
My biggest problem was the shelf life. The cables broke easily and there were just too many moving parts that something eventually went wrong with and as a woman I... (read more)

The lateral thigh trainer is a great exercise machine. I haven't exactly bought alot of exercise machines, but can tell that this one is very good. You can really feel it working and you can choose a low impact or more of a high impact routine.
Like with all exercise it is hard toget motivated to get on it, but once you do its actually pretty pleasant. The best part is that you can tell that it is working your muscles and using up calories.
I would recommend it to anyone looking to lose... (read more)

I bought the LTT but I can't use it because it squeaks so much that it goes through my head (even annoys the hell out of my cat). I've oiled it and it makes no difference. It's too late now to send it back. In theory I'd say that if you could use it, it would be quite good but it's also very boring.

DON'T BUY THIS LATERAL THIGH TRAINER! NO HAND RAILS OR ANYTHING TO GRAB ONTO!
I was gung-ho on this thing when I first got it....but BEWARE!
First off, you'd better be really balanced to get on it, like the back of a sofa or heavy chair.
The workout is boring & tedious after awhile ~ even when watching the video that comes with it. Keeping your balance is a major requirement.
I put it "away". It was a convenient size, but I didn't use it because it had to be backed up to a chair or... (read more)

The LTT is an amazing way to exercise if you dont like going to the gym. I have a young child and its perfect to just do at home in your own time. Iv had mine for 2 years and had no problems at all with it. I do 1000/2000 a day and within 2 weeks my flabby bits on my belly and hips are gone and thats without dieting. Perfect for a quick fix. This time im eating healthy aswell as doing the work out so im hoping for even better results. Defo a 5/5 from me. (read more)

The lateral thigh trainer is excellent. Yes there is a noise with the chain, but a bit of WD40 should sort that out. I tried it around four years ago and lost loads around the thighs and hips, and have just taken the same one out of the cupboard and started a fitness regime again. It can be boring, but i was using it with Wii fit (The jogging part) and that put paid to some of the boredom. Great purchase. (read more)

The lateral thigh trainer is a very effective method of exercise and i found the size of the machine ideal too as it doesn't take up much space and you can do it anywhere at any time.

I would definately buy again and I use my regularly to help try and keep fit. (read more)

Only used the Lateral Thigh Trainer for one month before the chain broke off, was highly disappointed though I lost a little bit of weight in that one month but just got discouraged since it doesn't really work for long. Think it will be great to do some more manufaturers work on it.

I like the Lateral Thigh Trainer, but it is very badly manufactured if required for regular use. Maybe suitable for someone doing five minutes once a week. The welding needs to be strengthened up and perhaps a bearing put into the arm where the chain arms hook through, as this part takes lots of stress. (read more)

After about 20 mins working out you can really feel it. However, the squeaking is unbearble! Tried to stop it by putting grease on the chains (???) but to no avail.

Had the LTT for over a year now. It deffintely works if you stick to it everyday - which I'm terrible at. It's easy to get through a week of doing 20 minutes a day on it but then I tend to get distracted & forget about it. However, I'm sure if I was to stick at it then the benefits would be even better. I've never had any problems with the build of the item, it's very stable and I can't seem to find any extreme faults, which is a good job seeing as I'm not the best person at DIY. (read more)

Where do I start? The resistance is absolutely terrible because the resistance stays the same at all levels - you are better off jogging on the spot. The pedals are also very slippery - you are more worried about not slipping off the equipment than getting a good workout.The product is useless in my opinion. Please dont waste your money and go through my experience of it, its not worth it! The Tv adverts on this product is very enticing! (read more)
