Exerpeutic 650 review

The 650 elliptical machine has numerous capabilities that are all designed to help people get cardio results, whether that means toning up muscles, losing a few pounds, or just improving stamina.

Within its main feature list you will find a longer than average stride length, as well as a nice range of tension that can be controlled through menus on the console quite easily.

Main features

Resistance – sixteen levels of tension isn’t quite up with the top tier options, with some offering upwards of thirty. However, what it does do is provide a nice starting point for intermediate users to work through a diverse range of difficulty levels.

Workout programs -Make your workout more interesting by using the twelve built in exercise applications.

Stride length – When you compare this model with several competitors in the industry, you can quite easily see the twenty three inches on offer here is above average for the price range.

Flywheel – Should you wish to, users can go both forwards and backwards thanks to the twenty pound, dual directional flywheel. Why would you want to do that you may ask? Well, the differing movements will effect muscles differently and keep the body and muscles guessing, lessening the chance of muscle memory.

Weight capacity – The frame and parts are made to hold heavier users. Which is great news for those of you just starting out and trying to shed some weight. It can bear user weights of up to three hundred and fifty pounds.

Dual action arms РGet your arms moving as well as your leg by utilizing the dual action arms at the front. The combination of peddles and arms moving together provide the formula for a solid full body workout.

Peddles – The peddles are specifically designed with a ribbed surface to stop the user from slipping. And in a sweat filled environment such as a home gym, this is more than welcome.

Floor levelers – The floor levelers at both ends ensure the elliptical is sturdy and stable as you exercise upon it.

Wrapping up

One of the things we recommend people go out and look further into before choosing any particular model are the consumer reviews. They often describe faults with the product and give a general feel of how happy people are with it. In the¬†Exerpeutic 650’s case, though there is limited feedback from our own sources, the ones we did find are more positive than negative which is always a good sign.

Couple that with the above average weight capacity, lengthy striding length, and training features, then you have a good platform from which to train in the comfort of your own house.
