The Proform Elliptical Trainer Delivers A Gym Quality Workout
Tired of the same old exercise routine? ProForm believes they have found the cure for monotonous workouts. The ProForm Elliptical Trainer offers all the features of traditional elliptical machines in addition to twelve different workouts, two interactive video games and iPod-ready speakers. Staying motivated, even entertained, during a workout can be the difference between having a fit six-pack or a couch-potato keg. ProForm’s new Trainer claims to “turn exercise time into play time!” The elliptical machine comes with two interactive games, “Fat Blocker” and “Calorie Destroyer” that can be played through the on-board screen.
Each game is based on a simple premise: the more you put into your workout, the better you will do in the game. Among users of the ProForm device, the only complaint has to do with the initial setup. “[The ProForm Elliptical Trainer] is smooth and sturdy,” a number of customers agreed. However, several said “[It] took two people three hours to put together. Almost everything is put together with an allen wrench.”
12 different workouts that will help you burn calories and improve your health. Convenient sensors built into the handlebars for a quick reading of your heart rate. Workout with 2 interactive video games that monitor your workout intensity. Clearview display has a large viewing angle so no matter how tall or short you are. Warranty includes a lifetime on frame, 10 years on brake and 1 year on parts.
A few reviewers were unhappy in the level of time it took to properly assemble. One reviewer mentioned that the pulse handle bars seem flimsy.
So What’s The Scoop?
Users describe ProForm elliptical trainer workouts as “gym quality” which “you totally feel the next day.” Reviews of the on-board games were mixed, but almost every customer agrees the iPod connector is a “great feature” which provides personal energy and entertainment.
