Exerpeutic elliptical trainers are widely used and trusted by thousands of users since it was introduced by one of the biggest industry manufacturers, Paradigm Health and Wellness Inc. They have earned huge reputation and positive feedback over the time and gained consumer trust.
Exerpeutic 1000Xl Heavy-Duty Magnetic Ellipticals with Pulse is one of their entry level, affordable elliptical machine that provides a great workout for both the upper and lower body.
It gives you “zero impact” workout with no stress on hips, ankles and joints plus the benefit of upper body exercising with dual action arms.
Exerpeutic 1000Xl Elliptical Features
The machine looks nice, as well as have some killer features. I have reviewed them all and going to discuss them on this Exerpeutic 1000xl heavy duty magnetic ellipticals with pulse review.
13-Inch Stride Length
The design of the Exerpeutic 1000xl only allows it to have a 13-inch stride which might be a bit short for people who are 5 feet 10 inches tall and above. However, well suits if you are within the range.
It is a basic equipment that does not have as many bells and whistles as other elliptical machines in the market and the stride length is one that it does have that can be improved on.
8 Resistance levels
The Exerpeutic 1000xl does have some resistance settings that can be controlled by turning a knob. Again, a feature that is not as advanced as other elliptical trainers have but then again is great to have in the first place considering its price range.
Those who are used to more advanced settings might have a hard time keeping up with this manual set-up but it is great to know that Exerpeutic was able to squeeze this in while staying on a small price range.
However, remember, if you are beginner and wants to start with a basic machine with a limited budget, this should the # 1 Elliptical machine on your choice list!
Located at the stationary bars by the LCD console, it allows you to monitor your heart rate. This can be a bit difficult to use because gripping the stationary bars causes your arms and elbows to graze against the moving bars which move along with each stride. The moving bars are designed to branch out specifically to avoid this but many reviews still mentioned this as something that can be improved on.
The basic LCD console shows much workout data that you might want to keep an eye on to track your progress. It displays the time that you have spent working out on the machine, the current speed that you are in, an approximation of the calories that you have burned during your session, your current pulse rate detected if you are gripping the stationary bars and the distance you would have traveled.
300 lbs. Weight Capacity
The 1000XI is capable of supporting up to 300 lbs. which is quite something considering that it only weighs around 80 lbs. The 1000XI’s strength is well appreciated by many of its users. You can push yourself all the way with the 1000XI and not have to worry about it giving out because you know that it has the brawns to keep up with the demands of your workout. Many reviews of the 1000XI, however, states that it can support even up to 325 lbs.
The foot pads in the 1000XI are intentionally large to allow you to keep your natural foot movement and placement. It also has a slip-proof design to make sure that you do not have any accidents while pushing through your workouts.
The Exerpeutic 1000xl is very light and has a small footprint. You can simply place it in any area in the house, and it will not require many real estates and in case you need to move it around, there are two transport wheels to make things easier for you. You can use it and then simply move it to the side and get on with your day.
The Exerpeutic 1000Xl is a very good machine for its price range. It does not has as much features as other elliptical machines out there but considering that it only cost about $$$, it is a great buy.
The strongest feature it has is the fact that it can support 300 lbs when other elliptical trainers twice its price can only support 275 lbs. If you are someone who wants a dependable and user friendly elliptical machine in the house, then the 1000Xl is a great choice to have.All in all, a great machine for its price range that would be hard to beat.
