I called for info at 5:30 this morning. Talked to Danny. I think we talked about xls. I didn't know about 2000 and 3000. What is the difference. I weight 300#. Would this machine support me. I am concerned about it being so low to the floor. Its hard for me to get off the couch. I have 2 stints in my heart, diabetic, and morbidly obese. I need help. Will this work for me if I use it. I would like to try it. They said it was $49.00 to try for 30 days. Danny said I would receive an additional 30 days for that same amount of money. Please let me hear back from you soon.
