Rating: 91.1/100. The ProForm PRO 16.0 NE supports a long stride, caters to a wide range of ability levels and is loaded with features that make exercise engaging. Its six-year parts warranty indicates high confidence in its durability too. Although we’d like to see better customer service on a $1,999 product such as this, overall it’s one of the most appealing elliptical trainers in its price class.

The ProForm PRO 16.0 NE is equipped to challenge and entertain a wide range of trainees. You can choose from 40 preset workouts or get infinite workout variety with an iFit membership. A removable bracket on the elliptical’s console lets you attach your own tablet computer to run iFit or your other files. iFit and the preset programs can make the elliptical automatically adjust its incline by up to 20 degrees! Combined with a 32-pound drive that’s ample challenge for just about anyone.
The PRO 16.0 NE’s front drive design might not be best for you though. Some users find that rear drive and center drive ellipticals make it easier to maintain a good posture throughout workouts.
A generous menu of 40 professionally-designed workouts is included.
For unlimited workout variety and advanced data management you can use this ProForm elliptical with an iFit membership ($99 yearly). Using your own tablet computer set above the elliptical’s console you can access iFit’s immersive Google Maps workouts with Street View: Virtually experience a real-life hill climb as the elliptical automatically tilts to mimic terrain! Here you can also use iFit video workouts, download a new elliptical workout every day, track your goal progress and get other fitness support.
