Proform 790E

by A Diet Community

The Proform 790E is a nice piece of fitness equipment that is sure to give you great results if used on a regular basis. There are a few reasons why one should consider the purchase of an elliptical trainer. As treadmills are harsh on your joints and hips, elliptical machines have just the opposite effects on your body. Your feet never leave the footpads, allowing for a much smoother and more comfortable workout. This is perfect for those who may suffer from lower back pain to bad knees.

The Proform 790 has many great features that are not found on other elliptical machines. One being the great intensity ramp that will help stimulate your quads, glutes and calve muscles for a more intense workout. The ramp can be moved a total of 25 degrees to provide you with an incline to help you reach your muscle building goals. It’s like running uphill!

The front drive system provides you with a 18″stride length, to help you build up the long and lean muscles we all long to have. Extra wide footpads with built in traction provides you with a smooth feel, and even has multiple positions for any size user, 20 different resistance levels are all just a push of a button away.

Another feature that I found truly amazing is the iFit card program, which has been designed by a certified personal trainer, plugs right into the console of the machine. The resistance levels automatically change for you while the trainer’s voice talks you through your workout. This is an 8-week program that will definitely help you loose weight, and build up some nice muscles.

Unlike treadmills that do not provide you with a full body workout, the 790E gives you a nice upper body workout using the arms of the machine to help define your arm muscles. Included in the handle grips is the pulse sensor so you can keep track of your heart rate during your workouts. This is displayed on the high intensity back lit display screen. It also reads out your level of resistance, your time, speed, and calories that you have worked off so you know exactly when you have worked out enough. You won’t feel lost as the screen and buttons are easily read. It comes with an Inter Play music port that is iPod and MP3 compatible, and has great sounding speakers, and even keeps track of your music on the display screen. This is a great way to keep motivated during workouts.

CoolAire workout fan is built right into the console of the 790E. The change of the speed is right at your fingertips, so turning it on during those overheating times is easy! While many different brands of machines have a fairly low maximum weight limit, the 790E tops at 325lbs. This is one of the highest weigh limits out there. The Proform’s frame is extremely sturdy, and comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame, and 1 year for your parts and labor. This is one of the most durable elliptical machines on the market according to a few personal trainers. The Proform gives you a fitness club quality every time you step onto the machine.

The cost for this series is a little higher than some, but with all of the mentioned features, you will not even regret spending $800 on this machine! Has easy to follow instructions, and the set up is fairly simple.
