What We Like About The Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical Trainer

The Exerpeutic Aero Elliptical Trainer has a number of features which we really like, so let’s just talk about those in some detail.

Perhaps one of the greatest features that come with the Exerpeutic Aero Elliptical Trainer is the reversible stride pattern. Moving forward on an elliptical trainer will exercise certain muscles, which is a good thing. This particular elliptical machine can go both forward and backward, thus allowing you to exercise a greater range of muscles and reap even more elliptical machine benefits.

The air resistance on the Exerpeutic Aero Elliptical Trainer makes for a smooth ride every time. The strap tension is fully adjustable with the turn of a knob. Simply turn the tension knob to change the amount of air resistance you are faced with. Having an elliptical trainer that can be adjusted in terms of tension is very important, which is exactly what this particular elliptical machine can do for you.

We really like the large oversized pedals with a ribbed pattern. These pedals accommodate virtually any size foot, they have great grip, are durable, and hard to slip off of as well. They provide you with the stability you need to use the Exerpeutic Aero Elliptical Trainer for a prolonged period of time.

We really like the dual action arms which the Exerpeutic Aero Elliptical Trainer comes with. The dual action arms ensure that you can get a good upper body workout. This is an awesome feature which any good elliptical trainer should come with.

We also like the LCD display which this particular elliptical trainer comes with. Being able to keep track of your progress and stats is important, so the fact that the Exerpeutic Aero Elliptical Trainer comes with a tracking display is definitely good. It can keep track of things such as distance, speed, calories burned, and elapsed time.

What We Don’t Like About The Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical Trainer

Now that we have covered the good, let’s go over some of the drawbacks which this particular elliptical machine has.

This is going to be a recurring theme, but it is important to note. While the air driven resistance is fairly smooth to work with, and can be quiet too, in this case, the noise level may be a negative factor. Many people have noted that the Exerpeutic Aero Elliptical Trainer is a very loud elliptical trainer to go with. This noise issue is something you may want to take into consideration.

Some people have noted that the Exerpeutic Aero Elliptical Trainer is a little bit wobbly. Not only is there an issue of stability here, but it may also cause screws to loosen. It is understood that this elliptical trainer will require a fair bit of maintenance if you use it on a consistent basis.

Alternatives To The Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical Trainer

So you can have a little point of comparison between individual machines, let’s take a quick look at a couple of other models.

Body Rider BR1830 Fan Elliptical Trainer

The Body Rider is slightly less expensive than the Exerpeutic Aero Elliptical trainer, which is something that you may be on the lookout for. The Body Rider BR1830 Fan Elliptical Trainer is also a little smaller and more compact, making it convenient for smaller homes. However, it is missing some features such as the reversible motion, which the Exerpeutic has.

Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E905 Elliptical Trainer

When it comes to elliptical machines, the Sunny Health & Fitness model and the Exerpeutic are actually fairly similar. The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E905 Elliptical Trainer is slightly more expensive, but not by much. It does have a lower weight capacity as well as only 8 adjustable resistance levels. On the other hand, the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-E905 does use magnetic tension, which means that it is a little quieter than the Exerpeutic Aero Elliptical Trainer.

Final Thoughts On The Exerpeutic Aero Air Elliptical Trainer

Overall, the Exerpeutic Aero Elliptical Trainer is a great option to go with. It comes in at an affordable price, has a decent weight capacity, good non-slip pedals, a reversible stride motion, and several other features too. When it comes to entry level elliptical machines, this is one of the better options for you to consider.
