Can I talk to someone about my elliptical?

Customer Question

Hello, can I talk to someone about my elliptical?

I bought my elliptical directly from Nordictrak last December. It seems very hard to use, even with the resistance on the lowest setting. Is there other adjustments I can look at?

Hi, when you start on level 1, then push it up to level 20, does it get much harder? Or is it just the same very hard no matter what setting.?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It gets harder at higher resistance, but the low resistance is very difficult to start with.
Expert:  J.T. replied 11 months ago.
Well then it's working correctly. The only thing you can try is to tighten the cable that goes to the brake in the machine. But this will not make a big difference. Those machines aren't that easy to begin with.
Expert:  J.T. replied 11 months ago.
Adjusting the cable might change it 1 or 2 levels easier but that's it.
