The Exerpeutic 1000Xl is an entry level, low cost elliptical machine that provides a great workout for both the upper and lower body. You can also consider the Stamina In-Motion if you are looking for something cheap that offer great workouts.
The large foot pads are designed for stability while the basic and easy to read LCD displays workout data like pulse rate monitored through the pads on the stationary handle.
It has a great weight capacity of up to 300 lbs. which makes it a good choice for people trying to lose weight.
The Exerpeutic 1000Xl is very comfortable as far as stance is concerned. The 13” stride length though can cause if you are around 5’7” in height or above.
But set aside the stride length, the Exerpeutic 1000Xl is really comfortable to use and does a particularly great jog of mimicking the natural motion of walking and jogging.
It is indeed a comfortable machine for what it is designed for.
Construction Quality (4.5/5)
The weight capacity of over three times its own weight speaks volumes on the strength quality of the Exerpeutic 1000Xl.
It is very sturdy and dependable. There are also reviews that it can support weights of up to 325 lbs. but officially, its maximum weight capacity is 300 lbs.
For a relatively slim machine, it is surprisingly strong, able to support more than what other heavier and pricier elliptical trainers out there.
Technological Features (4.5/5)
The Exerpeutic 1000Xl is a basic elliptical machine with basic features.
It has 8 resistance levels which can be controlled with a turn of a knob and a fairly basic LCD console that displays speed, time spent working out, calories burned, distance travelled, and pulse rate.
Pulse pads are located on the stationary bars right in front of the console.
Considering its price, the Exerpeutic 1000Xl surprisingly has great features. It has a 13” stride length which might be the only chink in its armor since most users are used to longer than 13 inches.
Workout Effectiveness (3.5/5)
The Exerpeutic 1000Xl actually does mimic the natural stride when walking or jogging.
With that in mind, it score pretty decent in workout effectiveness but the stride length really does pull it way lower than most since you will have to be below average height for it to feel like a workout.
But for those who can work with the stride, the Exerpeutic 1000Xl can really give you a great session.
One review even mentioned that she was “soaked” after 30 minutes on the machine with the AC of full blast.

It’s not that big to begin with so it should not take too much space.
When it comes to size and storage, the Exerpeutic 1000Xl simply has no problems.
