ProForm Hybrid Trainer
Would it be correct to assume that you’re like most people and want to get good value for your money?
Are your torn trying to decide whether you would be better off owning an elliptical machine or an exercise bike?
The good news is, with the ProForm Hybrid Trainer you don’t have to decide.
Two Machines In One
The Hybrid Trainer is two machines in one: an exercise bike and an elliptical trainer.
As I’m sure you know, ellipticals are known for giving their owners a low-impact cardio workout. That’s also true of exercise bikes.
The ProForm Hybrid can be used by men and women weighing up to 300 pounds. The Hybrid comes 14 built-in workout apps and 14 resistance levels. With this combo, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t start taking off weight in no time at all.
You’ll appreciate the small foot print of the Hybrid Trainer. It’s only 24 inches wide and 45 inches long.
ProForm Hybrid Trainer – Lots to Love
The ProForm Hybrid Trainer is relatively inexpensive. It does not need a wall outlet, something that can limit where you place other elliptical machines.
Many owners of the Hybrid Trainer enjoy the variety of workouts they can experience from day to day. The LCD console is easy to adjust when you switch from an elliptical to a bike workout.
And remember, these are all low-impact cardio workouts. Getting a low-impact workout can be important for folks who have experienced knee problems in the past.
A popular way to ride an exercise bike or an elliptical is to do an HIIT-style workout. With the Hybrid Trainer it’s quite easy to do such workouts.
The Hybrid Trainer console has a feature called Target Pacer. This is an indicator light that tells you when to speed up or slow down so that you’ll reach your fitness goals.
It’s Not Perfect
The ProForm Hybrid Trainer does need to be assembled. How long this will take you depends upon your skill and how fast you work. Users have reported that it can take between 2 to 4 hours. Though it’s not required, using a power screw driver can speed up the assembly and make it easier.
The Hybrid Trainer features a 15 inch stride when used as an elliptical.
Some users find that to be too short. Most find it to be fine for them.
What stride is best in an elliptical? This is matter of personal preference and how long your legs are.
The ProForm Hybrid Trainer is a relatively inexpensive exercise machine that won’t break the bank.
It fits in smaller spaces than many other machines and it easily adjusts between the 2 modes.
This can be a good machine for home use when you don’t want to go to the gym or aren’t able to go.
