If saving the environment is important to you than the ProForm 1200e is one of the most lucrative ellipticals on the market.
The ProForm 1200e saves electricity and money because the elliptical’s power is self-generated. Thus, when you exercise the energy from your performance is transferred into powering the console. It’s smart and efficient.
Along with the self-generating electronics the 1200e also features Silent Magnetic Resistance, smooth operating Glide Track, 20 inch stride length and 12 1-Touch levels of resistance.
The ProForm 1200e has one of the more diverse number of pre-defined workout programs in the $500 to $1,000 elliptical price range.
The elliptical offers 15 different workout programs and all the options are easily accessible through the 1-Touch technology. Do you have a preferred program? Quickly access the favorite program via a single touch.
This elliptical also features CardioGrip Heart Rate Monitor for quick access to your heart rate.
The only thing the ProFOrm 1200e is missing (and it will be a common theme for the lack of latest features) is compatibility with iFit Live or iFit workout technology.
The ProForm 1200e performs well on the smooth Glide Track and Silent Magnetic Resistance. The glide track reduces friction so it decreases part wear while also contributing to its incredibly smooth operation.
The smooth, frictionless resistance of SMR Silent Magnetic allows you to adjust your workout intensity without interrupting your workout. Choose from ten intensity levels to target specific workout and conditioning goals.
Consumers searching for an extra challenge might have some beef with the elliptical only having 12 levels of resistance but the resistance level is adequate for most light recreational users.
It’s easy to burn extra calories and add muscle tone with the upper-body because the elliptical incorporates this area of the body into the fitness routine. Users often rave about the comfortable oversized pedals.
Save electricity and money with this self-generating elliptical. The energy from your workout is transferred to power the console making this elliptical one of the most environmentally friendly fitness products on the market.
Unfortunately, the ProForm 1200e lacks a few basic features like a built-in cooling fan, iPod/mp3 port and built-in speakers.
