Don’t just workout, workout like a pro with the Proform Elliptical machine. Designed to offer you all of the benefits of a cardio-style bike as well as the extra body workout of an elliptical, the Proform is a small sturdy machine at a lightweight price.

With multiple features such as the 14 different digital resistance levels to help you to burn more calories and the 15 inch stride length that allows you to get a low impact workout, the Proform truly has it all. The Target pacer allows you to get a customized workout much as you would at a gym, while keeping your costs low and your budget tight. An oversized LCD window allows you to stay on track while you work out, measuring your distance, the calories that you have burned as well as monitoring your pulse rate while you’re working.

The low impact is perfect for those who are recovering from surgery or illness, allowing them to achieve a low intensity or low impact workout and still get stay fit or to get fit slowly, without pushing to levels that they are not accustomed to.

Delivering all of the benefits of the elliptical and an exercise bike, the ProForm is versatile, comfortable and offers the user a low impact cardio workout that is perfect for those who are not in the best shape.

It offers workouts for the upper arms and upper body, as well as adjustable pedals. The hybrid brings you total, all over body training. The seat is comfortable enough to be a chair and offers you convenience without the high price.

The console adjusts so it doesn’t matter if you’re sitting or standing, the LCD allows you to monitor your workout and your heart rate.

The inertia enhanced flywheel reportedly offers you a smoother and more comfortable exercise session while the faster and better gear ratio helps to keep your stride more natural. All this and you’ll be sure that you’re well hydrated when you take advantage of the built in water-bottle holder that allows you to keep your hydration close at hand so you can drink when you need to.

The small machine allows for use by 350 pound individuals and offers a well-balanced workout even with heavier persons using the machine. Built to last, the ProForm Elliptical hybrid offers you the kind of workout that you’re looking for in a gym, while allowing you to set your own pace and do what you’re comfortable with.

 

Customer Tips

  • When the machine squeaks, WD 40 does not work. Sewing machine oil seems to work very well for quieting it down.
  • Raise your arms slightly. They should widen the inside handles, but you can compensate for it.

FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

[Click on the questions below to see their corresponding answers.]

Do the arm poles move when the bike is being used? I'm hoping to be able to use a laptop or watch tv when biking?

Yes because they are connect to the pedals. I velco my iPad to the display and watch video.

Trouble w/assembling the Proform Hybrid trainer. I've attached the front frame to the rear, but I cannot completely screw in the three screws, esp. the bolt on the bottom of it. The holes seem aligned, so I'm not sure what is the problem.

You might try to wiggle it a bit as you get the screws through… The alignment is close but may not be exact… Try using a screwdriver shaft to line up the holes on both sides of the frame… Also be wary about the horizontal pivot rod (the shaft where the elliptical handles slide onto) make sure the grease is applied well, the fittings are tight and scrape most of the grease off as you slide the fittings on causing squeaking and eventual wear.

Can it fit a 6 foot tall person?

Yes it can, i am 6 feet tall as well and i don’t have any problems using it.

I am handicapped and would be transferring from a Hoveround power chair, how tall does the seat sit from the floor?

Twenty three inches above the floor, about an inch higher then my roller walker seat. There are two handles, one on each side of the seat that are good for holding on to when cycling. These handles are also useful for getting on the seat. In my opinion there shouldn’t be much of a problem transferring over.

Two questions - I want to take this abroad with me, does voltage matter or does that not pertain to this machine?

As long as you have access to batteries you’ll be fine. They last a long while at least mine have changed once after six months in.

How many parts are there that have to be assembled?

It didn’t seem to bad to put together about 2 hours with the two of us… My husband and I love this thing! Well worth the money and the time to put it together!!
