Stamina InMotion E1000 Elliptical Reviewed and Rated
Not a lot of people out there have the time to consistently exercise and stay fit. Going to the gym takes time, and home gym equipment can be large and expensive. You may lack the space to fit a treadmill or an elliptical in your home. The Stamina Inmotion E1000 is an elliptical machine, but it's so small and lightweight that you can easily fit it even in your cupboard! The E1000 has a comfy handle that allows you to carry it with you no matter where you go. Just slide it underneath your table, be it one in your home or at your job, and pedal away into your new, fit self!

The flywheel which powers the strider is protected by a plastic shell, strong enough to withstand a lot of wear and tear damage. The top of the flywheel is adorned with a handle for easy transportation. The E1000 has an axle and a crank, both made out of steel. The pedals are made out of hardened polyurethane. They are very wide and comfy, and they have ridges that make them non-slip, so don't worry about losing your footing if you decide to use it while standing up. The pedals sit about 7" from the ground. The E1000 is classified as a mini-stepper, so do not expect to have a long stride when using it. Users that have bought the elliptical often complain about the short stride, but you must test it out to see whether it's bothersome to you as well. The pedals rest on metal arms, each equipped with silicone rollers, built to last years. The E1000 can support users up to 250 pounds. This means that if you weigh less than 250 pounds, you can safely stand up when you pedal, but if you exceed the weight limit, you will have to use it while sitting down.
The Stamina InMotion differs from the E1000 in one way. The standard InMotion has cords where comfortable grips are attached, allowing you to target your upper body as well. The E1000 does not have any cords or handles, so you'll be able to work on only your lower body. You will still get a good workout out of it, but you will need to find a different way to activate your upper body!
