Exerpeutic Aero Air Ellipticals Review
I can see that you are one of the smart ones because you are taking the time to do some amount of research before you by an elliptical machine. Congratulations! You should be proud, as soooo many people blindly go online and purchase exercise machines based on looks and price alone. Sure, those factors are important and you should definitely consider them; but doing some research to find out more about the machine that you want is always a good idea. For most people, a trainer will be a considerable investment of their hard-earned money, and it would be a waste of valuable time if you end up with an elliptical machine that won’t be able to meet all your needs just because you didn’t do your research.
So here we are considering the Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical. If you are looking for a budget-friendly elliptical that can give you a full-body workout but is still small enough to fit into cramped spaces, look no further than the Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical. Your pocket won’t be crying after you purchase this elliptical machine as it is currently retailing for just under $100 bucks (prices are subject to change). This elliptical is also lightweight and has some features that you don’t normally find on ellipticals in this price range. Curious? Continue reading to find out more.
Compact Is Better
The Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical is smaller than many of the ellipticals that fall in the same price range. Its compact size makes it ideal for persons who have small workout spaces, like apartment dwellers. It is only 33 inches on its longest side so it should be pretty easy to store away in the average-sized closet. What makes it even better is that it only weighs about 55 pounds and that is something that even I can lift with no problems.
When you are shopping for an elliptical machine to use at home, weight and size are very important factors to consider. You have to make sure that the machine will be able to fit in your intended workspace. One way to ensure that you don’t end up with an elliptical that is too big for your workspace it to take measurements. Dust out your old measuring tape and record the dimensions of the area where you want to use your new elliptical machine. That way, when you come across one that you like, you can compare its measurements against those of your workout space to know whether or not it will fit comfortably. You can thank me for this tip later.
Workout Your Entire Body
Not all ellipticals work your upper as well as lower body, especially not at such a low price point. Lucky for you the Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical is one of the few budget ellipticals that will give you a proper full-body workout. It comes complete with dual action arms for you work out the upper part of your body while you are walking or running on the machine. The two handle bars move naturally when in sequence with the foot pads and they almost force you to work your arms and shoulders. I prefer ellipticals like this as, from my point of view, a full-body workout beats a half-body workout any day. That’s what I call value for money. I think those ellipticals that only work the lower half of your body are just not living up to their full potential.
Good Weight Capacity
A person up to 260 pounds can workout comfortably on the Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical and that should mean that most it is suitable for most people. In all the reviews I read online about this elliptical machine, no one had any complaints about its weight capacity. In fact people as heavy as 300 pounds claim that they were able to use it with no problems. I don’t recommend that you use it if you are over the recommended 260 pounds; I just want to emphasize my point that this is a sturdy elliptical that will certainly stand up to its advertised weight capacity.
As Much Resistance As You Need
The resistance on this elliptical machine comes from magnetic tension. As it uses magnetic resistance you will be able to adjust the resistance levels according to your needs for each workout. This is great because after a while you should be able to work out with incrementally higher levels of resistance on your elliptical, especially if you want to increase your endurance, strength, and stamina. Working out at the same level of resistance all the time can get boring real fast.
You adjust the resistance level on the Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical with a dial tension knob. This is not the most technologically advanced way to change resistance levels, but it works. If you would prefer the resistance settings that are controlled by buttons, you may just have to shell out a few more bucks for a more expensive model.
Stride Length too Short
One complaint that people over 6 feet tall had was about the length of stride provided by the Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical. The stride length is somewhere between 12 and 15 inches, and for taller people this is just not enough for them to work out comfortably. This means that people over 6 feet tall generally won’t be able to get as much out of their workout on an Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical machine as shorter persons will.
For those on a tight budget the Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical is definitely one to consider. This is one compact elliptical machine that will give anyone a challenging workout. Based on my research I would say that it is more suitable for people who are just starting to work out, as those at the more advanced levels of fitness may need a machine that has more features.
