Stamina Inmotion Compact Strider Review
Elliptical machines are excellent tools to build your strength and tone your muscles. They can also help you work on your cardiovascular health, making them very versatile. But the biggest problem people have with ellipticals is their size. These machine s can be very massive, leaving a large footprint and weighing well over 200 pounds. This makes it hard to fit them in your home! Luckily, the Stamina Inmotion Compact Strider is extremely small, and it can fit neatly under your desk. Plus, it’s very lightweight so you can carry it with you even to your workplace, and if you have a job where you often sit, you can give your muscles and joints a good shakedown to remain healthy! Scroll down to see whether the Stamina Inmotion Compact Strider deserves to help you become a better version of yourself.

The axle and the crank are both made out of steel. The lateral arm bars have a steel construction as well. The pedals on the Stamina InMotion are wide and comfortable, plus they are non-slip, so don't worry about losing your grip when you start to pedal faster. They are made out of tough polyurethane. The pedals are lifted about 7" from the ground. Some users report that the stride is not long enough for their comfort, while others say that the stride is just right, so you'll have to try it out to see whether it works for you. The metallic arms where the footplates rest are completed with silicone rollers, which are built to survive years and years of use. The Stamina InMotion can withstand users up to 250 pounds, and as long as you don't exceed this weight limit, you'll be able to use the strider while standing up. If you are heavier than 250 pounds, we recommend you use the Stamina InMotion while sitting down.
One more feature we have to mention is the cords. The handles connected to the cords make the strider much more versatile, and you will be able to target more muscle groups with just one machine. You can pull them all the way to challenge your heart, or you can just lightly tug them to activate your whole body. The cords are made out of latex, and the handles have adjustable straps finished with rubber, comfortable grips.
