If you’re looking for a recumbent bike, then chances are you already stumbled upon premium brands such as Schwinn and Sole Fitness. However, there are actually some lesser known companies out there that fly under the radar, which manage to produce some of today’s most reliable exercise bikes for less. Exerpeutic Fitness is one fine example of this, with the Exerpeutic Fitness 1000 high capacity magnetic recumbent bike.
As the upgrade to the 900XL, this model will bring your workout to the next level with its smoother torque-cranking system, pulse-grip workout arms, higher weight capacity, along with an oversized cushioned seat for comfort. Of course, it retained the features that made its predecessor a popular name in its own right, including the precision balanced flywheel, V-belt drive, oversized pedal, multi-level magnetic tension resistance, and a large LCD display that provides easy monitoring at a glance.
Key features of the Exerpeutic Fitness 1000 high capacity magnetic recumbent bike
With the Exerpeutic 1000’s innovative “Step-Thru” design, getting on and off the bike is easier than ever. The cushioned seat is considerably bigger than the 900XL’s, while the back rest is equally padded for maximum support and comfort.
This cushy seat also offers a quick and easy adjustment system to accommodate users from 5 feet and 3 inches up to 6 feet and 3 inches tall. Pair this with the machine’s 325-pound maximum user capacity, and you have yourself a budget-friendly but heavy-duty addition to your home gym.
Smooth and silent ride
This model is a smooth operator thanks to the company’s “Smooth Torque” cranking system that ensures a consistent pedaling motion. It works hand in hand with the V-Belt Drive and Precision-Balanced Flywheel to provide a seamless and silent operation so it won’t interfere with other activities like listening to music or watching TV.
The leg stabilizers are extended too, in order to prevent the machine from wobbling or moving around during those rigorous routines. This is perfectly complemented by the oversized pedal with safety straps for slip-free performance from start to finish.
The 1000 Recumbent Bike holds its own against pricier models that offer less for the price. It will let you customize your ride and mix up your training routine so you can shed the most number of calories and reap the most health benefits.
It features an 8-level magnetic resistance that will let you manually adjust the tension levels to take on light, moderate, or more intense workouts as desired. Another nice touch is the dual handlebars, which are integrated with a pulse grip for monitoring your heart rate and keeping it in the target zone.
This can be easily viewed in the large LCD display that also indicates fundamental workout stats like the time you spent pedaling, distance covered, and amount of calories burned.
The Exerpeutic 1000 High Capacity Magnetic Recumbent Bike measures 54 by 22 by 34 inches (L x W x H) and has a maximum user capacity of 325 pounds. It tips the scales at 63 pounds, and is fitted with wheeled feet at the bottom so you can move it effortlessly around the house. The machine comes mostly assembled upon shipping and is covered by the manufacturer’s 1-year limited warranty on parts and labor.
