As you can see, the elliptical came in several, no, scratch that....MANY pieces. Including two boxes full of smaller parts and a pile of plastic wrapped pieces to the right. It's hard to see them but believe me, it's quite a mess.
I also haven't thrown away the box yet, just in case I need to take it back! The box is almost as long as my couch and is taking up so much space, I can't wait until I feel it's OK and I can throw it away! It's full of cardboard and plastic that used to protect the elliptical (though oddly enough some of the pieces had dried mud on them).
