Any tips? I will say once you get moving they are much better than any resistance trainer ive used, and wear you out trying to maintain speed to help your stability.

The nashbar units appear to be of decent quality, though the rollers scuff easilly. For $150, I cant complain and would reccomend them for anyone tired of dodging snowflakes. I havent even massively ate shit off them yet (although it sure felt like I was trying for the first day)
NEVER, EVER ,EVER watch anything on TV that will make you flinch. Walking Dead would send you flying!

Practice is the only thing that worked for me, concentrate on SMOOOOOOTH.
