About Elliptical Trainers
Elliptical trainers represent the next wave of advancement in low-impact cardiovascular exercise machines and continue to grow in popularity. By simulating motions experienced through walking, stepping, cycling, and skiing, elliptical machines allow for a smooth and fluid motion while building strength in the arms and legs. Similar to the exercise position for treadmills, elliptical trainers are used by standing in an upright position while holding the handrails of the machine. With elliptical trainers, however, your feet remain in the foot pedals throughout the exercise regimen and circulate in a smooth and seamless motion, resulting in little to no impact on the knees, back, and hips.
Elliptical trainers are compatible for all ages and fitness levels and allow you to select the difficulty level through the incline and intensity settings. Additionally, elliptical trainers allow you to determine the complexity of your workout based on your needs, all while listening to music, watching television, or reading a magazine while exercising in the comfort and safety of your own home.
Although different types of elliptical trainers offer an assortment of features, many of them include an array of challenging programs, forward and reverse directional movement, EKG grip pulse handles, a lightweight portable design with easy fold-up capability, and a monitor displaying calories burned, distance, speed, time, and heart rate. Other types of exercise machines, namely treadmills and bikes, offer excellent cardiovascular exercise and muscular training for the legs in a forward-motion exercise. Elliptical trainers take this to the next level by offering an upper and lower body workout with dual motion, challenging and diverse programs, and a low-impact exercise machine that won't strain sensitive joints.

Excellent work out on your thighs. Quite a heavy lil piece of equipment but doesn't take up very much space. Something you could definetely take to work and use. Has a calorie counter, step counter, and miles too!...more info
- Good, but different
This item works well, but not like an elliptical. It has a much shorter leg span, which works for me because I'm short. I like it and use it every day. It does require getting used to, balance wise, but I'm very happy with it. ...more info
- good product
This is a good little piece of fitness equiptment. It operates quietly, and smoothly so far for the 6 weeks that I've been using it. It's real compact too. Till you get used to balancing w/out handlebars, you may want to use it near something that you can hold on to, like in a doorway. ...more info
- Portable but motion is to short
Just received my InMotion E1000 and I am happy with the easy assembly and portability of it. Seems to be well built and sturdy. Had to laugh a little by how short the circular motion is on it. I guess I should have figured by it's size. This certainly won't replace the work out you will get on a regular sized elliptical but on the flip side it is better than not doing anything. Probably one would get a better workout just running in place but I suppose this is easier on the knees and more quiet. If you have the room for a real elliptical save your money and don't bother with this product....more info
- Not bad for a short workout
Like most have said, the short steps do get some getting used too. But I like that its compact and I can lift it to get it out of the way. I haven't had any problems and can actually work up a good sweat for 30 mins cranked about half-way on the resistance. I still use the larger machines at the gym; but the little elliptical sitting in front of the TV does encourage me to do 10-15 mins here and there when I don't want to leave the house. Every little bit helps in the battle for weight loss and staying in shape!
I wouldn't rely on it solely for a workout, but getting on it for 15 in the morning and 15 at night (when I don't get to the gym) does help!
Finally, it is good for those who tend to buy equipment for the house that ends up being a clothing rack or collecting dust! It's not expensive and can be hidden in a closet out of the way. *ha ha* ...more info
- Hard Work Out
I had read many reviews before purchasing this product. In the end I decided to purchase it. I drive an 18 wheeler and it fits comfortably in my truck. The little machine is a bit heavy but that is not a problem for me. It is a sturdy little machine. I feel the burn on this machine. It seems that at times it is smoother going backward than forward but overall it does what it is suppose to do. My legs feel the burn hard. Some reviews said the digital counter cannot be reset, well, all I have to say is read the instructions. Hold down the button for a few seconds will reset the digital counter. I love this machine and I do not, will not and would not ever regret or replace this machine. Five star from me....more info
- So worth it
I purchased this small elliptical after reading at least two hundred reviews about it, and wondering if it was worth almost a hundred bucks...and I must say that I am very happy that I bought it! It is kind certainly a sturdy piece, but I had no problem putting it together myself in about 10 minutes with the supplied tools. It has non-slip pads on the front of the piece, but I still cut a square of non-slip drawer liner out and put it on top of that, and it works great! It doesn't move around at all. The elliptical is small, but not small enough to fit under my sofa, as I had hoped, and not small enough to be inconspicuous in my tiny apartment either. But having this out in front of my TV is great motivation for me to use it. As some reviewers have mentioned, the stride is not as long as a typical gym-style elliptical, but would you expect it to be? It is too small for that. Initially I needed a chair in front of me for balance, but now that I am used to it, I can get on and stride to my heart's content. I am 5'4" and this works well for me, the resistance is adjustable and the little digital monitor is great too, it reads time, distance, calories burned. You can set it to show which read out you would like, and you can reset it by holding the button down when you are done with your "session," it is easy! And the monitor is big enough that I can read my time just fine when I stop to look down. This gives a good work out for the $, it is certainly worth the equivalent of 3 months paid gym membership, I love that I can work out and at the same time, watch my favorite shows in the privacy of my own home now! Oh, and another perk was that Amazon shipped this FedEx for FREE in just 3 days!! Loves it....more info
- Great product
I love this trainer. It gives me a great workout. It's small enough to be positioned in my family room without being intrusive and it being in sight motivates me to use it, sometimes for only a few minutes or sometimes for a 25-40 minute session. I highly recommend buying it....more info
- good idea, but not a perfect one
This machine surprises me because like everyone else said I too was skeptical about this machine because it is so small. But after using it for 10 minutes for the first time, I was already sweating. And like everyone else said, the machine rocks from side to side sometimes while I'm using it.
So you should be careful while working out on the machine. I wish it had a handle on it for balance, but I'm using the machine behind my couch and using my couch for balance sometimes.
I guess it's an ok way to start exercising but by no means will this replace a real one.
It's great for small apartments or dorms. And since I live in a 6 floor walk up, there was no way I can get a big one into my apartment. Unless I paid someone. But for $100 or so, it's not bad, not bad at all....more info
- Nice Little Wonder!
I've been using it for couple of weeks. i was skeptical at the begining, but it surprised me! Gives me a pretty good workout every day since I've been using it. Good thing about this one is it's small size -- you can pretty much put it anywhere you like. It's virtually noise-less. My other machine squicks and grinds. But this one is smooth, no noise. The strides are small, so it's not going to give you heavy workout. But you can easily burn about 100 cal in 10 minutes....more info
- AVOID AAA Home Furniture Discounts!
AAA Home Furniture Discounts lacks integrity should be avoided at all costs. I have dealt with hundreds of Sellers in the Amazon Marketplace and AAA Home Furniture Discounts is by far the worst. They misrepresented the product and refused to replace damaged parts, then taunted me and said they would win against any claim I might file. They are completely unprofessional and never even sent an order acknowledgment or shipping confirmation. DO NOT REINFORCE THIS BEHAVIOR!...more info
- Be warned--elliptical motion jerks & you may fall over!!
I would think this product, for the price would be sufficient for a simple calorie burning routine, or as someone who's previously reviewed it states--it's better than sitting on the couch. However sadly it is not. The size is great, the foot pedals are of sufficient size, however the elliptical motion is horrid! It is not smooth & jerks very sharply--almost to the point of me falling off of it! When you do manage to get it going, the range of motion is far to small to feel like you're doing any real work. I'm a fuller sized person, so for me to say that after about 30 minutes I BARELY BROKE A SWEAT is saying quite a bit about this products lack of cardiovascular exercise ability....more info
- Defective Product
After 3 weeks, the product suddenly exhibited a loud squeeking sound which I was unable to get rid off. Maybe I just got a lemon but i'm returning this as I don't have any confidence that it'll hold up longer with future use. Although the product has a nice form factor and is portable, I thought the short stride was a letdown. But what can you expect from this size and price? Overall, not one of my better purchases....more info
- Quality Product
I've had the InMotion elliptical trainer for about a month and so far it seems like a really good product. It's small so it can be stored out of the way easily yet it is still sturdy so you don't feel like the thing is going to fall apart when you use it. It doesn't have the range of motion that a full sized elliptical machine would but that is to be expected and even with the limited range of motion you can still get a good workout on it. ...more info
- suprised to be so happy with it!! 4.5 stars
I bought this in the beginning of the year. I had read all the reviews and was a bit concerned with some of the lemons, but I have to say I am REALLY happy with the product.
First of all, it was easy to assemble - I did it by myself on my lunch break.
It's easy to use. I really haven't had any issues with jerkiness or joltiness (are these words?) because I started on a low tension, got used to the movement, and then increased the tension. It takes effort to get moving, but once you start its smooth. So far I have heard a few squeaks here and there, but not bad at all.
As for the workout - I bought this machine for days when I couldn't find the time to go to the gym (I thought I'd have no excuse not to exercise with this machine). But, I have totally stopped going to the gym because this machine is really great. I work up a sweat using it. It all depends on how intense you want to work it. Sometimes I add hand weights and sometimes I raise my hands above my head, but I still work up a sweat without doing anything extra.
The digital counter is small and a lil hard to read, but that's not that important to me. The machine is compact, it's a lil heavy so pulling and pushing it back takes some effort, but I figure it's part of the workout.
I hope this product lasts because I love it. My only wish, is that the stride was a lil longer. It's better than a stepper but not as long as a full elliptical machine. I'd give it 5 stars if it weren't for the squeaks and if the stride was longer.
It's definitely been worth the $99.
(I am 5'8, female, about 150 lbs if that makes a difference...)
- Spacesaving dynamo!
Easy to assemble, all tools included. Put the foot rest in the down position, step up and go! I would call it an elliptical stepper since your taking short steps rather than a long stride. It works very well, surprisingly quiet and can be used standing on it or when sitting in chair. Sitting isn't the same type of workout but it sure beats justing sitting down watching your hind end expand to the shape of your chair!
Can use several ways, standing upright and jogging off your toes to work feet and calves (use caution you don't have rock solid balance)or squatting, keeping feet flat and only moving your thighs. That will bring on a burn!
Nice product, the size is perfect and I'm very pleased with it....more info
- Broken within two months.
I bought the item even though I saw some bad reviews. After using it for a few weeks, it started acting a bit off and the motion was no longer smooth. Then, after two months (not using it every day), the left paddle would no longer stay on the track. It is now a piece of junk....more info
- Not too shabby
i made a mistake following the instructions...i had the backrest facing forward instead of backwards...
really makes you sweat, great room saver :)...more info
- worth the $
We bought this for our son to use while he is being treated for cancer. I tried it one day and wound up staying on it for 30 minutes and I got a great sweat in!
It is slightly wobbly but nothing that is bothersome in terms of balance. ...more info
- Works as expected
As other reviewers posted, the machine is short in strides, but I just consider it a smoother version of a mini stepper. I haven't had any problems with losing my balance. It seems like I would need something to grab on to but once I get in the groove, I feel pretty secure in place....more info
- Mini Trainer
This elliptical trainer was just what I was looking for since space was a problem for me. It was easy to assemble and seems to be sturdy. I've been surprised on how fast you can get your heart rate up in a short amount of time. Balance was a little tricky at first since there are no handles to hold on to but after a couple of workouts, it's not a problem....more info
- Amazing little device
The elliptical trainer was easy to put together. When I first saw all of the nuts and bolts and screws, I was certainly intimidated, but I actually had it put together in under five minutes.
The machine works great, I was surprised there was even a way to adjust the amount of tension on the elliptical.
As others have noted there is a bit of a rocking problem on the elliptical trainer, however, I found that using it on my carpeted floors versus my wood floors completely eliminated the rocking motion, and it worked perfectly.
I live in a cramped Manhattan apartment, so the elliptical trainer's compact size and the fact that it made almost no noise was terrific for me. While the stride is much smaller than on a normal elliptical trainer, I found that the small stride worked well for me since my environment is small. A bigger stride would probably have me knocking down vases.
Another thing that I was worried would be a problem was the lack of handle bars, when I used the elliptical trainer on a hard surface, the rocking was intolerable and near impossible for me to balance on, especially with no handle bars. Once I moved it to a carpeted area, it was much easier to operate and I didn't even need the handles.
I actually found that trying to force myself to balance on the trainer intensified my workout, which is certainly a plus.
I was also worried that because it was so small, the workout I would receive would be minimal. Boy, was I wrong. Within just the first five minutes of using it, my legs were burning and my heart-rate was pumping fast as if I just ran a marathon.
All in all, I think it's a great little device that works wonders, especially if space and price are of importance....more info
