is a subsidiary of Icon Health and Fitness, the largest retail fitness
company in the world and Their brands can be found in most mass merchants. Icon subsidiaries include Reebok, Weider, Nordic Track, and Weslo.
elliptical trainers typically range between $300 and $1,000, but are sometimes price higher. Overall, the Icon brand is great at one thing -- discount fitness equipment. However, the quality of the Proform elliptical trainers leaves quite a bit to de desired.
ProForm elliptical machines are built for the casual user. If you plan to work out on a
regular basis, we would recommend you consider other brands. Similar to their elliptical trainer,
Runner's World categorized ProForm treadmills as a "light duty machine."
marketing people at Icon are genius in that they build inexpensive machines that
have the look of much more expensive models. Of course, plastic is cheap. Icon
is also big on bells and whistles. A perfect example is their iFit technology
an interactive program that controls your workouts with various challenges. Their
flaw is in the quality of the components.
Service and warranty are a big issue with ProForm ellipticals. The Proform elliptical trainer warranty is under 1 year for most units, and their service department has a long way to go to compete with the major elliptical trainer manufacturers.
