UnDiet: Thank you to one of our readers for this detailed review of what looks to be a great piece of home gym equipment.
I like this small so-called elliptical! Having tried a mini-stepper before, I found the Stamina Inmotion E1000 to greatly surpass the workout quality. Putting it together was a breeze.
I normally use it while I am watching TV and you can easily transport it from one place to another. Before I purchased this elliptical, I used to eat food while watching TV which is unhealthy. Now I’ve effectively swapped that habit by exercising on the Stamina E1000 elliptical machine. The advantages are tremendous!
Reviewers have stated how compact the stride is in comparison to the fitness-center elliptical machines. This is quite true actually; however I don’t feel this is as a bad thing as the motion is extremely nice!
The E1000 Elliptical Trainer can easily get my heartbeat up or assist me in breaking a sweat. The best thing is that this elliptical completely hits the core areas as there are no handles to lean on. Due to the lack of handles, one is forced to stand upright which in turn works the core muscles.
My abs are always sore the next day if I am completely focused on my position during workout. I sometimes carry small weights to workout my arms during cardio on this machine. That’s an additional advantage of having both hands free.
The tension could be changed from easy to hard very effectively. It apparently counts calories too (unsure how that actually works because it never requests my weight to begin with, but it’s still good because it helps me to monitor and motivate myself!)
The Stamina 55 E1000 trainer also counts steps and miles walked. My only real minor complaint is that it stops and starts over after 9999 steps rather than counting ahead. Nevertheless it does remember your steps and miles walked from a while back like a week ago or last 2 days!
It’s an excellent elliptical as its cheap, small and less expensive in comparison to regular elliptical machines. Even if it only lasts a few years, I possibly could buy a replacement but still wouldn’t be anywhere near to the cost of a regular elliptical!
I made use of the free Super Saver delivery to have mine shipped through Amazon and now I get a great workout several times a week within the confines of my very own house which saves me the troubles of having to pay at a gym and drive there just to get a decent workout!!
