Do you lead a busy lifestyle? Work in an office?
The Stamina InMotion E1000 is specifically designed for busy people with busy lifestyles.
If you have trouble finding time during the day to exercise and/or work a traditional desk job the E1000 is designed to provide fitness opportunities while at work.
At first glance, the InMotion E1000 is extraordinarily compact and lightweight, but some experts disagree on whether or not it is an “elliptical”.

Theoretically, the Stamina InMotion E1000 is a brilliant product.
A lot of consumers work long hours and often are confined to a small cubicle. Unfortunately, this leaves little room to exercise by the time you get home and eat dinner.
However, this elliptical promises to deliver the fitness you need while at work. It’s an ingenious concept on a piece of exercise equipment that… well… is with a few major flaws.
The Stamina InMotion E1000 is essentially foot pedals with a chassis that’s small enough to store under a desk or in a closet.
Consequently, the “elliptical” is not built with any pre-defined workout programs or heart rate monitor.
The trainer does, however, provide a handy electronic monitor which tracks strides, exercise time and calories.
The Stamina InMotion E1000 is a snazzy little trainer assuming that you do not weight over 150-175 lbs., and are not very picky when it comes to stride length.
Stamina InMotion E1000 Features
The Stamina InMotion E1000 is really attractive solely for its price tag.
Instead of paying $1,500 for a typical elliptical you can get something that is designed to produce a similar effect for less than $100.
Unfortunately, the Stamina InMotion E1000 is unable to fully deliver with an extremely small stride length and shaky frame if you have any size to your body.
If you are not really expecting a true elliptical the Stamina InMotion E1000 will do the job, but in time you will probably want to upgrade to something more efficient.
Warranty & Guarantee

We love what Stamina is attempting with the InMotion E1000 trainer but it’s still a prototype that needs some work.
The Stamina InMotion E1000 will fit a specific niche market yet fail to address the needs of most consumers who either need something more durable with a longer stride length, more electronic features or would simply prefer a more stereotypical elliptical.
The good thing is the Stamina InMotion E1000 is now being sold at less than $100 and arguably worth experimenting with if you can afford to take a chance on the product.
