Look good. I have looking for this previously but I was not sure which one is better. The price too one of my consideration. Look for the good one with cheaper price :)

tq rad...i found 2 versions during the few days of my survey...tak nyempat2 nak beli..hehe..

this one side by side step n it cost me over rm200..

an older version without the "arms band" tu less than rm150 - yg tu steps atas bawah...

i think both okay, but more for cardio exercise...

nak kurangkan lemak, i'm trying n taking teh herba O.K most days after far ok juga but some people can't stand the taste of it..hehe..

ok, i'll try to update my progress..
