The Exerpeutic Magnetic Elliptical with Pulse is a very sturdy machine that offers plenty of nice features. Like with most exercise equipment, it is hard to please every user. There are some negatives that users have pointed out. Read on to weigh all the strengths and weaknesses of this machine.
The stride length of the Exerpeutic 1000XL Heavy Duty Magnetic Elliptical is going to present some problems for many people. Measuring in at 13”, it appears this machine was not designed with tall people in mind. You should look for another option if you have long legs. For people who find a 13” inch stride adequate, this elliptical can provide a smooth and effective motion.
The tension settings are a nice feature. There is a consistent progression in difficulty from one setting to the next. The eight options provide users of different fitness levels with a setting that should be adequate. To adjust the resistance, the user simply has to turn a knob that is labeled from one to eight. Some users have complained that it would be better to have the resistance adjustment on the computer monitor rather than on a knob.
Programs and features
The Exerpeutic 1000XL Heavy Duty Magnetic Elliptical comes with a monitor that displays key information like target zone heart rate, distance, time, speed, and calories burned. Sensors are built right into the handlebars to make heart rate readouts fast and accurate.
The computer requires 2 AA batteries to function. They are included in the original shipping package.
This machine has an auto on/off feature that some may find annoying. You cannot turn off the machine, you have to wait approximately 30 seconds for it to shut down once you have stopped your workout. It turns on once the machine is in motion. While it can be a useful feature to prevent worn out batteries due to leaving the machine on overnight, some may prefer to have a manual on/off switch for greater control.
The pedals have a ribbed design that is supposed to prevent foot slippage. While they are good at that, they are also good at tearing up bare feet. It is better to wear shoes when using this machine.
Noise can be a big comfort problem for many ellipticals. Exerpeutic 1000XL Heavy Duty Magnetic Elliptical does not have this problem. The quiet operation of this machine will not disrupt listening to music or watching a favorite show on television.
Assembly and Storage
The instructions warn users that it may take up to two to three hours to successfully complete the assembly process. This appears to be a bit high. Most users find that it takes them only about one hour to 90 minutes to get all the parts together. A socket set could come in handy and speed up the process if you happen to have one at home.
This machine can easily be stored in the corner of a room. Thanks to convenient front wheels, it is easy to wheel the machine into a storage position.
The Exerpeutic 1000XL Heavy Duty Magnetic Elliptical comes with a three-year limited warranty.
The machine measures 54 x 23 x 63 inches. Its maximum user weight capacity is listed at 325 pounds.
The Exerpeutic 1000XL Heavy Duty Magnetic Elliptical has received some positive and some negative reviews from users on Amazon. Overall average rating is out of 5 stars.
Most of the positive remarks are aimed at the sturdiness of this machine. As a heavy duty elliptical, you would expect sturdiness to be one of its best features. People also comment on the relative ease of assembly. This could be influenced by the fact that people are surprised when they finish before the rather high estimation of two or three hours suggested in the manual.
The 13” stride length is the biggest problem here. It is going to make this machine difficult to use for a wide range of potential customers. Machines with 16” stride length can even pose issues for taller users, so taking three inches off that number should lead to even more problems. Some users have also complained about the lack of a water bottle holder.
The Exerpeutic 1000XL Heavy Duty Magnetic Elliptical with Pulse gets decent reviews from users because of its sturdiness and durability. If you want a heavy duty machine that provides that can handle a user up to 325 pounds, it could be a very reliable workout option.
