Rated 5 out of 5 by KimE LOVE IT!!!
I bought this to use under my desk at work. We were having a walking/fitness contest and I realized right away that the only way for me to make the steps I needed daily was to add something I could do at work. I wasn't sure it would work under my desk, but it fits fine and I can use it without hitting my knees (I am 5'5") no matter what type of shoes I am wearing. I wasn't sure my desk chair would roll close enough to it for me to reach my keyboard, but that turned out to be no problem as long as I make sure the chair wheels are straddle it. I found out that it improves my poster because I have to sit up straighter to be comforter. When it arrived the counter did not work so I had to call customer service. The call went to a live person (surprise!) and she immediately said she would send me a new part. The part arrived in two days and I was able to install it myself. I put the equipment together myself, too, although the box was heavy. So I have been using it every day. I try to always get in 10,000 steps. I love that you can reset the counter and it holds your number even when you walk away and come back. You can set the tension which I also find helpful. If I don't want to break a sweat I set it low and use it to keep my legs moving (anything is better than nothing, right?). That works fine. I really love everything about it. Let's not forget that the price was excellent for the quality. So the contest is over (yes, I did make my steps every day!) and I am still using it. It is a "gadget" that I really use. I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Whatchalalala Pretty good alternative to the gym eliptical
The Stamina InMotion E1000 Compact Strider is a good piece of exercise equipment to use in my small apartment. It doesn't take up much space, and if I don't feel like going to the gym or don't have time I can jump on it and burn some calories. Although it does serve the purpose of doing exercise, there are a few things people should know about the product before purchasing it. If you're not good at balancing or coordination you might not want to buy this as there are no handles and it does from time to time get wobbly if you get off balance or don't stride correctly. I hold onto a chair in front of me sometimes or put my hand on the wall if I get too tired to keep my balance. The next thing is that this is not going to be exactly like a full size elliptical machine. The strides are smaller than a full size and I find because my feet are size 12 that my feet keep creeping forward and barely fit on the steps. So, overall good product, but don't expect the same feeling as a full size elliptical machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mbm5 working great
My stamina inmotion E1000 elliptical trainer is working fine. I like it because it is small and easy to store and move around the house. I also like the fact I can use it while watching tv. I can sit on a chair use it. I'm too heavy to use it standing up, but some day soon I hope to reach that goal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChgoConsumer Better for seated use
Doesn't mimic the same motion and stride as a full size elliptical, probably for safety's sake, since it lacks arm support. It does have a nice smooth action for seated use while on the computer or watching TV etc..Works as well cycling forward as it does backward. Haven't used the digital tracking feature since I keep it under my desk at work and use it sporadically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StephenJ Amazing machine, and AWESOME Customer Service!
I am a 51 year old man, 6'1" and 215 pounds, with very arthritic knees who is not allowed (Doctor's orders) to walk or run and must use a no-impact elliptical to exercise. I bought this machine more than 3 years ago, in July, 2012. Since then, I've used it hundreds of times, burning up to 1,000 calories per session. My knees feel great using it, the calories burned are real, and the E1000 paid for itself in terms of gym membership savings within the first month!
Also, as tiny parts have worn out (inevitable with any workout machine if you are a large and and use it as much as I do), I have found it EXTREMELY easy to get replacements from Stamina. Their customer service department is INCREDIBLY helpful, and the parts are very inexpensive and easy to replace.
This is EASILY the best workout/exercise machine I have ever purchased. I plan to have one of these until I die.

I have been using my E1000 for over a year now and love it! It has helped improve my fitness level, health stats and over-all mood. I use it daily with my standing desk at work and now more and more staff are purchasing it for themselves.
