Exerpeutic 1000Xl Heavy Duty Magnetic Ellipticals with Pulse
The Exerpeutic 1000XI model is great for people who are looking to lose weight without wanting to join an expensive gym. You get a fantastic overall body workout too because this elliptical isn’t just for working out the lower body, it also has dual arms for working the upper body and building muscle at the same time.
The machine has stationary handlebars that allow you to focus your energy on your lower body alone. The pedals on this elliptical are large and ribbed so that keeps your feet from slipping while you’re exercising.
This machine can hold up to three hundred pounds at one time. Balance isn’t a problem with this machine because it doesn’t rock back and forth like some of the other models have been known to do.
What a lot of users also like about it is that it has no impact on the hips and ankles so it’s perfect for those who have arthritis or other joint problems. If you happen to be someone with a lot of weight to lose, this one can help take the strain off your joints.
It has a large and easy to read LCD display that shows you how many calories you burned. Your time and speed are also monitored. This information comes in handy for when you want to vary your workout.
It also monitors your heart rate by using the pulse pads located on the stationary handles. This elliptical is a bit on the heavier side at eighty one pounds in weight, but it has transportation wheels that make it easy to move it from one room to another so lifting it won’t be an issue.
The wheels also enable you to slide it into a corner if you’re not using it. It’s also a relatively quiet machine so you can watch TV or listen to music while you’re exercising.
This Exerpeutic model doesn’t have the jerky or bouncy motions that some other ellipticals have. It comes with dual directions so you can move the pedals either backward or forward and the pedals move smoothly in both directions.
The elliptical also doesn’t have a rubber smell like other models do. The pedals on this elliptical are made of plastic and only the handles are rubber, making them easier to grip.
The stride length for the machine is thirteen inches and the pedals are large without being so big that your feet slide around when you use them. There’s no way to adjust the stride length.
As you become more comfortable on the elliptical, you can increase the tension to give your body a better workout. This elliptical has eight levels of tension and you can increase or decrease as you choose.
Some assembly is required but the instructions are thorough and easy to follow. The tools you’ll need to put the elliptical together are even included in the box. The LCD display needs two AA batteries to work.
