Stride

Motor

Change your stride to find a better fit or change up your workout for more variety. ProForm allows you to choose from 15 to 22 inches in stride, which targets different muscles and adds definition to your lower body.

Enjoy the Power Adjustable Stride feature on several models, allowing you to adjust your stride length mid-workout with the touch of a button.

Adjustable Ramp

Incline/Decline

Get better results by changing the incline or decline of your elliptical. It will modify the shape of your stride, which alters the muscle groups you focus on during your workout. Target your glutes, quads, and calves with the touch of a button for faster results. Choose between decline of -10 degrees and 30 degrees of incline.

Several models offer the Power Adjustable Ramp, which easily changes the incline/decline of your ramp from the in-handle controls.

Resistance

Speed

Digital resistance allows you to adjust your workout resistance for increased calorie burn and higher intensity. Our smooth, frictionless resistance system allows you to incrementally adjust your workout without interrupting your rhythm.

Upper-Body Grips

Speed

Elliptical training engages your entire body, burns more calories, and tones more muscle with our upper-body workout arms adding resistance and improving cardio.

And you can quickly personalize any workout with the in-handle controls, available on several models. Conveniently built into the handlebars, it's easy to adjust your resistance and incline on the go.

Inertia-Enhanced Flywheel

Speed

Get a smoother, more comfortable workout with the heavy-duty, inertia-enhanced flywheel. Our faster gear ratio and effective weight placement deliver a natural striding experience.

Heart Rate Monitor

Heart Rate Monitor
  • To monitor your heart rate on the console, either place your hand on the EKG Grip Pulse during your workout or use a wireless chest strap transmitter.
  • Several ellipticals include the wireless chest strap with purchase.

A heart rate monitor is an effective way to improve your aerobic endurance, lose weight, or assess your fitness level. With ProForm, you have two options available on our ellipticals. First, place your hands on the EKG Grip Pulse throughout your workout to receive accurate and instantaneous readings.

Second, many of our models include an interface that communicates with a wireless chest strap transmitter. The chest strap broadcasts your heart rate information to the elliptical console, where you can easily stay in your target heart rate zone. Several of our ellipticals even include the wireless chest strap with purchase.

SpaceSaver Design

SpaceSaver

Our patented, revolutionary SpaceSaver® design is available on almost every ProForm elliptical. Fold the machine up and out of the way to maximize your training space.

After you have the elliptical folded up, use our built-in transport wheels to move it easily from room to room.
