ProForm Smart Strider Elliptical Trainer 2018
ProForm Smart Strider Elliptical Trainer is one of the best products on the market for those with limited space and on a tight budget.
This trainer is perfect for anyone living in an apartment or trying to make the most of their space. Review after review promotes this machine and they are dead on, it is just a wonderful piece of fitness equipment.
Many trainers are this price category will feature very few training programs, not the ProForm Smart Strider Elliptical Trainer. You get 6 programs on this trainer and it also features an automatic adjustment feature that allows you to change your resistance to keep you at your desired level without interrupting your workout. Few elliptical trainers will show you this feature at this price level.
The product continues to impress with the “virtual trainer” feature. There is a pacing coach built into the programming that beeps and lets you know that you are falling off of your scheduled pace. A great feature as we all tend to drift when we are working out and this feature will definitely wake you up and keep you focused. Most people want to get the most out of their workouts and this ensures that you are doing just that. Almost like having your coach scream in your ears that you are not putting out enough effort!
While a machine in this price range will not have all the bells and whistles that you will find on the equipment at your local gym, this one does a nice job of giving you what they can for the money. The best “special” feature is probably the 180-degree viewing angle of the monitor. It probably does not sound like much of a feature until you have several people using the machine and you constantly have to adjust it. This is one less annoying thing that you don’t have to deal with during your workout. The fan is also pretty impressive for a bargaining unit as you will have no problems staying cool and comfortable during your workout session.
Of course, one of the main reasons this home gym equipment is so attractive is the space saving capabilities. You don’t always get quality like this in a fold-up unit but this is definitely an exception to the rule. Some machines are unstable or unable to hold up to a fast-paced workout but the 850 does a wonderful job and won’t realize it is foldaway until you actually do exactly that.
You can easily pack this up in no time at all and put it in the closet and out of site or up against the wall. Either way, the eyesore or a bulky machine is not an option with the sleek space saving model.
At the end of the day, I think you will be very happy with your purchase of the ProForm Smart Strider Elliptical Trainer. It delivers everything you would expect from an introductory level machine and more. For under $500, you will not find a better deal!
