Reebok 1000 X Elliptical Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
The Reebok 1000 x is an older design that is hopelessly outdated by newer units.
The Reebok 1000x is a relic of an elliptical past best forgotten. We would suggest that you run, not walk, away from this machine. Only an idiot would buy this with all of the better options on the market today.
The Reebok 1000 X is outdated and overpriced. At $756, you're in a price range where much better ellipticals can be found. This model no longer functions as an appropriate exercise tool and would be more aptly placed in a museum.
Ergonomically speaking, this elliptical isn't very good. Even at this low of a price, it's not hard to find models that offer a much more natural range of motion. For just a couple hundred dollars extra you can get machines that put this one to shame in this category. The adjustability is also a bit lacking. The stride length is fixed at 18", so you have to hope that works for your body type. There are, however, 20 resistance levels that allow you to find which settings work with your particular fitness levels. Several models in this price range offer more options than this.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is pretty good. This life expectancy is about as good as you can hope for in this price range. If you're willing to spend an extra hundred dollars or so, you'll be able to find some models that have a significant jump in durability. The quality of parts is also nice considering how affordable this elliptical is.
The noise levels of this model are about average. This is pretty common for all ellipticals regardless of price, but the ones that sell for less than $1,000 are usually slightly louder. If you are worried about noise, and you don't want to spend more than $800, this is as good as it's going to get.
The warranty on the Reebok 1000 X is awful. Parts and labor are covered for 1 year, the resistance system is covered for 12 years, and the frame is covered for life. This type of a warranty indicates a lack of faith in this elliptical on the part of the manufacturer.
