The Cubii Jr. 2 Compact Seated Elliptical — on sale with mat and foot straps for just $170 at QVC (was $304) — is a genius little machine.

Take it from these happy (and healthy) customers:
One shares, "I returned home from Hospital/Rehab after 4months and I still needed a walker to walk. I have a stationary Bike, but I knew I wouldn't be able to get up and get on the bike. This was the perfect solution for me. I needed to strengthen my Quad muscles. I did this every day from May 16th and on June 3rd my 70th Birthday I threw away my walker... I truly believe that Cubii did for me what no Physical Therapist could ever do."
Another adds, "Bought this to aid rehab following total knee replacement. What a nice addition to my home exercises. My physical therapist was excited I have added this at home too. Anything to keep moving the knee, and will be greatly useful in another week when knee number 2 faces that same surgery. Glad I purchased this super quiet little machine."
It acts as a virtual trainer, working to help you improve your posture and engage your core while you train. It has eight resistance levels, an ergonomic design, and it’s so quiet you won’t lose focus or risk distracting others in the room. In other words, family movie night is no sweat with this covert workout buddy.
