ABOUT MENS TOTAL FITNESS
Men's Total Fitness was launched in the winter of 2005 to provide honest information on how to get fit. This website has the techniques and strategies to help you burn fat and build more muscle naturally. This site is updated daily, but I am very particular about the information that is posted because I only want techniques and strategies that work and that support the "natural path" to getting fit. I don't believe in weight loss pills, steroids, fad diets, or any "quick fixes" or gimmicks to getting fit!
The TruPace E220 elliptical sells at an average retail price of $699. It is a solid elliptical trainer with 22 workout programs and 16 intensity levels with articulating foot pedals. This elliptical also has a great sound system. It’s a great machine for the price. Other ellipticals equivalent to this model in features retail for over $1000.
This particular model offers a lifetime warranty on the frame which is great considering it states that it has a 275 lb. user capacity, but in actuality can only handle 175 lbs. It’s too light of a machine for heavier users.
Overall, this is a good value for the price. If you are looking for an elliptical under $1000 that has a lot of features with a good sound system, then this is the way to go as long as you are not a heavy user. It’s meant for smaller framed individuals and will not withstand a lot of weight over time.
The TruPace E200 elliptical is the entry model in its series and retails for only $499. It is quite compact and lightweight, but is also geared toward small users. As long as you know that it’s not meant for anyone over 250 lbs. then you are okay. Other than that, it’s a great entry level elliptical for the money.
This model has 22 programs and 16 intensity levels with a backlit LCD console and has a 90 day warranty on parts and labor. It has a lot of features that most ellipticals have as well such as the water bottle holder, built in workouts, etc. It does weigh only 116 lbs. so it is not extremely sturdy and heavier people should not use this machine.
The great thing about this elliptical is that it has a 30 day trial so if you are not satisfied with the machine, you can return it. This is a starter elliptical so you can’t expect to get everything that high-end ellipticals include, but you are getting a good machine for the price. Most other machines of this caliber retail around $800 so you are saving money with this model.
Overall, the TruPace E200 elliptical is a great buy for beginners and small users.
The TruPace M150 treadmill is the top model offered by TruPace Fitness and retails for $899. It has a 350lb weight capacity with a 2.5hp motor. This well built machine is very sturdy and can accommodate many users – small or large. It’s a great value as far as treadmills for under $1000 as it comes with a lifetime warranty on the motor and frame with 2yrs on parts and labor as well which you only find on treadmills over $1000. That’s definitely a bonus when it comes to treadmills.
This model has up to a 15 incline level and a large running surface of 20” x 55”. Moreover, it has 14 preset programs that are very user friendly. What I like most is how quiet the motor is given its size as well as the sound system. Most treadmills of this size have very loud motors.
Overall, this is a great treadmill for the price offering tons of features and extremely well built. It’s had nothing but 5 star ratings so far on quality, features, reliability and price and therefore, it is definitely a great buy for under $1000!
The TruPace M150 is the top model in its line and a bit more expensive, but if you are looking for more durability, this is the way to go while still not spending a fortune.
