If you are wanting to get fit in the comfort of your own home, but you have limited space to have a large piece of equipment to be standing in your living room or spare bedroom, then the Stamina In-Motion Elliptical Trainer is the ideal choice.
Small, portable, and very easy on the joints, this particular piece of equipment is very popular for those with a desire to increase their fitness levels, without taking up precious space in the household, and without damaging the bank balance too much.
Size – 21 x 14 x 14”
Weight – 30lb
This compact and lightweight piece of equipment is ideal for increasing exercise levels whilst at home. Weighing just 30lb, the trainer is easy to transport from home to office, and back again, and can be stored in a closet with ease. The low impact nature of the trainer means that knees, ankles, and hip joints are protected, because the feet never leave the comfortable pedals, and because it is a foot pedal only, it’s certainly not going to get in the way.
The electronic monitor gives you important information on your workout progress, such as calories burnt, how many strides you have taken, and the overall exercise time. The machine is also sturdy, despite its small size, with non-slip pedals for comfort and safety.
The major pro is of course the cost (see latest price above). This is the ideal choice for those who want to indulge in exercise at home, without spending a small fortune on a large piece of equipment, which needs to be left in a room, or has to folded up into a closet, taking up a lot of space. This foot pedal only choice can easily be stored under a table, and taken out for use whenever the mood takes you.
The low impact nature of the device is also ideal for anyone who has joint problems, because the workout you receive protects your hip, knee, and ankle joints, giving you overall benefit, without the pain or discomfort. There is also minimal noise from the machine, which is a major difference from larger pieces of equipment, which can be quite noisy.
You’re going to have to make use of your screwdriver and put your new trainer together, as it comes unassembled, however once it is constructed, it can safely be stored, without having to be folded up.
The major downside is for those who want a more intensive workout, because although the benefits are quite large, if you want to truly work up a sweat, then you may be better off opting for a larger, traditional treadmill.
For anyone who is looking for a small piece of equipment to help them burn a few calories whilst at home, this is the ideal choice. Easy to use, easy to store, lightweight, and easy on the bank balance at the same time, the Stamina In-Motion Elliptical Trainer is a great middle ground piece of fitness equipment.
