Product Description

Get fit even when the weather outside is dreadful with the ProForm 850 elliptical trainer. Equipped with a Silent Magnetic Resistance (SMR) system and a SpaceSaver foldaway design, the 850 is an ideal choice for people who want a complete cardio workout but don't have the room to dedicate to full-size exercise equipment. The SMR system is the heart of the trainer, as it lets you choose from 10 different intensity levels without interrupting your workout. Should you want to further mix up your workout routine, you can turn to the six personal trainer workouts, which automatically adjust the resistance levels to focus on aerobic, weight loss, and performance goals. Plus, the trainer includes two heart rate (HR) workouts that help you stay in the correct training zone. The HR options automatically increase the resistance when you need to raise your heart rate and decrease the resistance when you need to lower it.

The 850 includes oversized foot pedals and a fold-away frame.
The ProForm 850 elliptical trainer also makes it a breeze to track your workout progress, with an easy-to-read ClearView display that shows your time, resistance level, calories burned, and more. And users who need a little extra motivation will love the Pacing Coach, which lights up when you need to work a little harder or slow down a bit. Other features include a 5x7 workout matrix, a 180-degree viewing angle, a CoolAire fan that keeps you comfortable while you exercise, comfortable oversize pedals, and an 18-inch stride length. The ProForm 850 measures 27 by 61 by 61 inches (W x H x D) when unfolded.

About Elliptical Trainers
Elliptical trainers represent the next wave of advancement in low-impact cardiovascular exercise machines and continue to grow in popularity. By simulating motions experienced through walking, stepping, cycling, and skiing, elliptical machines allow for a smooth and fluid motion while building strength in the arms and legs. Similar to the exercise position for treadmills, elliptical trainers are used by standing in an upright position while holding the handrails of the machine. With elliptical trainers, however, your feet remain in the foot pedals throughout the exercise regimen and circulate in a smooth and seamless motion, resulting in little to no impact on the knees, back, and hips.

Elliptical trainers are compatible for all ages and fitness levels and allow you to select the difficulty level through the incline and intensity settings. Additionally, elliptical trainers allow you to determine the complexity of your workout based on your needs, all while listening to music, watching television, or reading a magazine while exercising in the comfort and safety of your own home.

Although different types of elliptical trainers offer an assortment of features, many of them include an array of challenging programs, forward and reverse directional movement, EKG grip pulse handles, a lightweight portable design with easy fold-up capability, and a monitor displaying calories burned, distance, speed, time, and heart rate. Other types of exercise machines, namely treadmills and bikes, offer excellent cardiovascular exercise and muscular training for the legs in a forward-motion exercise. Elliptical trainers take this to the next level by offering an upper and lower body workout with dual motion, challenging and diverse programs, and a low-impact exercise machine that won't strain sensitive joints.

Product Description

Get healthy with a high-quality workout on the ProForm 850 elliptical trainer. With SMR silent magnetic resistance, you can choose from ten different intensity levels without interrupting your workout. The over sized pedals make it easy to find a comfortable foot placement. Eight programs give you great workout variety and allow you to customize your routine. A cool air fan keeps you comfortable while you exercise, and space-saver design lets you fold away your elliptical for storage when not in use.

I've never felt so cheated, the thing is just not worth it.
Steven I. Sinkewicz
I was used to using a good machine at my office gym and was looking for something comparable but could not afford to spend a lot of money.
S. Joyce
It's take a minimum of two hours to put up, if you are handy.

This unit is excellent for the money. The construction is rugged enough for someone like myself who said "supersize me" a few times too often. It doesn't wobble under load, and offers very quiet and smooth operation. The space-saver feature is a real plus for me - I have a tiny house, and it easily folds into a small footprint - width 26" x 40" folded, and 66" unfolded. The front rollers make it possible for one person to move. The instrument panel works well - basic, functional resistance controls and a few decent training programs (I get rather amused by the marketing features that makes some of these machines boast about having a zillion programs, which are often fluff, or unusable). Assembly took me 4 hours, working alone - the instructions were the most clearly written I've seen in a long time. If you've ever changed your car's oil, you won't find any challenges here. I was able to get it into my house with the aid of a 2 wheel hand truck - two people (or opening the box outdoors) may be required.

The unit is specifically set up to just meet the max weight UPS will ship, and the box gets chewed up because of it, make sure you are home to inspect the package and reject it if you have any concerns. The unit comes unassembled and I cannot remember how long it took to put it together but figure a couple of hours. It is reasonably well made but if you are say 250 or more don't count on years of service. It does not come with a wall power supply which is irritating but the batteries seem to last 6 months. The movement is fluid and somewhat natural and I have no trouble getting a good work out. I like the machine, The range of motion is a little short but since I am 5' 8" its fine. Moving it around is not a problem for me, but someone smaller might find it difficult. Just realize, even though it folds, it is still pretty big, 3' x 2' x 5.5', luckily I have a large closet nearby.

Be very careful when deciding to purchase from Pro-Form based on their stated warranty: I purchased a SpaceSaver 500 based upon the product packaging, which listed a 10-year frame warranty and one-year parts and labor. When I got the thing fully out of the box and dug the instruction manual out, the warranty there claims a 90-day parts and labor, with the customer having to either (1) pay for an on-site visit, or (2) pay shipping both ways to return a defective part for depot repair. I called Pro-Form to ask, and after about 15 minutes on hold and a couple of hand-offs to other people, a fellow in "marketing" said that all their frames now have a ten-year warranty (once he said "lifetime"). I asked him to either send me something in writing or point me to the warranty coverage statement on their web site, he couldn't do it. Seems to me they're counting on customers to figure it's not worth the time and effort to return such a heavy, bulky item when they find out their warranty is other than what they thought they'd purchased ....

This was my second (and last!) Pro-Form purchase: the first machine broke at a frame weld after about 15 months of moderately heavy (two times a day during the week) use. I figured they must have improved the frame design to be able to offer such a long frame warranty, but no such luck: the new model's built identically to the old, and it's liable to break exactly the same way (where the vertically mounted tube meets the main frame).

Oh, there's a pamphlet in the packaging offering to sell customers an extended warranty, too, which kicks in 90-days after purchase ....

This thing will be a big disappointment if you're expecting a well-built, stable trainer like you've ridden at a gym, or if you want something you can use in your living room while watching TV without headphones, etc., but if you have realistic expectations, you can make it work.

I put ours in the basement, because the wood floors upstairs groan too much under the movement, and the whole machine is very loud (see below). Even on the cement floor, it is quite unstable and wobbly. At under 150 lbs, the movement of my weight can easily get one of the legs to come up off the floor when I'm using the arms, and I could definitely topple it completely if I really swung into it. So I put cinder blocks on the back edge of the back foot. You have to position them sort of half-on or else the pedals will catch them. Because of its instability, the trainer slowly creeps forward and the cinder blocks fall off about every 1/2 hour, so I have to drag it backwards periodically. I also tighten the bolts every few weeks (I just took the big magnet things off the arms so I can have easy access to the bolts underneath), which helps a bit. I do wonder how it would hold up under a bigger body...

While swaying like a ship at sea, it also makes the appropriate noises, like a creaking wooden hull. I always listen to headphones while riding, which drowns the racket out.

The heart-rate monitor is 100% useless (my heart rate is evidently either 40bmp or 220; no matter how long you hold the sensors, it never stabilizes on a remotely reasonable measurement). If this is important to you, you will need to budget an extra $50 or more for a wrist-strap-on thing that actually works.

I don't bother with any of the programmed courses. The resistance adjustment works fine.
