ProForm Cardio HIIT Elliptical Trainer Review

The ProForm Cardio HIIT Elliptical Trainer is designed with strong steel and constructed to compete in commercial level. Just like the upgraded version, the ProForm Cardio HIIT Pro Trainer that has got loads of features that will enable a user experience High-Intensity Interval Training so does this unit and one can hardly tell the difference between the two.

This can be the right investment if you are looking forward to feeling the burns and reducing calories, weight loss and achieving overall physical fitness.  This is possible because HIIT is a type of workout that is assumed to be a radical approach to achieving physical fitness and the ProForm Cardio HIIT Elliptical Trainer happens to be the equipment that would enable you to experience the HIIT because it was designed and built to do just that.

This unit is essentially a stepper plus an elliptical all in one to help the user work on the entire body and tone the muscles accordingly.  Below are the features that make the ProForm Cardio HIIT Elliptical Trainer stand out from the regular and standard elliptical machines out there.

Features/Pros

  • This unit allows you to work on the different muscles in the body including the legs, core, and arms, back, and shoulders because of its stair climber and of course its multi handlebars which also allow you to work in a boxing pattern.
  • The 10’’ vertical path and a 5’’ horizontal essentially allow you to experience an intense workout that would make you feel the burn on the lower body. This is how the stair climber and the elliptical work, making it be unique from the everyday elliptical.
  • Its unique multi handlebars allow a user to achieve an outstanding upper body workout because of its boxing-style motions including adjustable resistance that gives the edge on thoroughly working on the arms, shoulders, back, and the core. This is no doubt a very important asset that makes the ProForm Cardio HIIT Elliptical Trainer THE ELLIPTICAL MACHINE.
  • There are 32 preset workout programs that would keep you positively busy towards achieving your physical fitness, be it weight loss, working on the different muscle groups of the body or just toning the entire body. Do have it in mind that this unit was basically designed to fight off fat and help you lose weight just as the name implies, HIIT machine.

  • It has got large and well-cushioned footplates that can accommodate different foot sizes and still offer the much-desired comfort during a workout. Also, it has got leveling feet beneath the foot plates designed to keep it stable.
  • The 7’’ backlit LCD display of the ProForm Cardio HIIT Elliptical Trainer is beautifully designed to display your workout data such as the time, distance, speed, and calories burned. There is also the option of one-touch controls on the console that makes resistance adjustment and workout program selection a lot easier.

Cons

  • The fan might be an issue if you are expecting an absolute silence during a workout. The unit is ordinarily quiet but some users have pointed out that the fan can make some kind of annoying noise especially if you have to use it all the time.
  • I have also observed that this unit does not include the HR chest strap upon purchase, which means you have to buy that accessory separately; unfortunately, the built-in heart rate sensors on the handlebars are not reliable as the HR chest strap. Just in case the none inclusion of an HR chest strap in this equipment is a problem then you might want to look up the ProForm Cardio HIIT Pro Trainer which includes HR chest strap only that it is more expensive than this very particular unit.

Warranty

  • Lifetime for the Frame
  • 3 Years for Parts
  • 1 Year for Labor
  • It supports 350 pounds maximum user weight
  • It weighs about 180 pounds.

Shipping and Assembly

Shipping cost of this equipment is free as far as you are buying from Amazon. However, I am not sure of the other retailers about their shipping policy.

As for assembly, it takes about an hour or so to assemble as there are fewer parts to fix and an instruction manual also accompanies the unit as well which will guide you in the process of assembly.

Conclusion

The ProForm Cardio HIIT Elliptical Trainer is a recommendable machine no doubt. It is built with durability in mind and of course with functionality. This is the machine that could help you experience HIIT even with a lot of ease due to the features integrated into it.

A lot of consumers have positive things to say about this equipment except for the very few that were unfortunate to receive a broken unit, but the good news is that it can be returned if it is broken and be sure you verify this fact before buying.
