This tiny Elliptical has really been incredible for me. I have previously used a small-stepper; however, I find the work out quality of the Stamina InMotion E1000 to be much better. And what I liked most about this elliptical is that putting it together was quite fast and easy.
Another fantastic aspect of the Stamina E1000 is its portability. I can simply carry this elliptical from one spot to the other; I can do my work out from anywhere. I used to eat while watching the TV, but now I have turned this unhealthy habit to a workout. I have combined my TV time with my workout time, and the benefits are truly tremendous.
This elliptical’s reviews indicate that it is more compact when compared to a fitness center elliptical trainer. I find this to be true; however I do not view this as a negative aspect, because I find its motion to be very effective.
The InMotion E1000 has been very effective in breaking me into a sweat, and increasing my heart rate. I personally feel that the best part of using this trainer during a workout is the core you can achieve. The lack of handles on the elliptical forces you to stand up straight during a workout, and thus strengthening your core muscles.
If I maintain the right posture during a workout, I get to feel the effect on my abs the next day. When doing Cardio exercises I simply add some weights, this helps to exercise my arms. This is the other advantage of having your hands free during a workout; it helps you incorporate several workouts into one.
The tension level on this trainer is easy to adjust, and can be adjusted from an easy level to a difficult one. This machine is seemingly also able to count calories (I am not very sure how this works, however this is a great feature as it can be instrumental in monitoring and motivating you).
The Stamina 55 E1000 is also able to count miles and the steps one walks during a workout. The only issue I would raise about this is that it stops counting and resets itself after 9999 steps; however the machine is effective in keeping a 1 or 2 week record on the miles and steps walked.
This elliptical is quite affordable when compared to other trainers in the market. Even if its durability is up to a few years, one can easily afford a replacement and the price of the two would still remain minimal compared to the price of a regular elliptical.
My elliptical was delivered by Super saver shipping through Amazon, and now I enjoy workouts at the comfort of my own home. This has saved me on gym costs.
The final verdict is that the Stamina E1000 Elliptical Trainer is simply wonderful.
