Enjoy a great low impact workout that builds long, lean muscle and burns excess calories with the ProForm StrideSelect 825 elliptical trainer. The StrideSelect 825 has a two-position adjustable stride, which allows your muscles to work differently so you can build extra definition and find the right fit for you, and six built-in workouts. Plus, the transport wheels make it easy to move from one place to another in your home.

The smooth, frictionless SMR Silent Magnetic Resistance system allows you to adjust your workout intensity without interrupting your workout. Choose from multiple intensity levels to target specific workout and conditioning goals. The L.E.D. Pacing Coach function lets you know when it's time to work a little harder or slow down so you can get the most out of every workout. Get an accurate pulse reading with the convenient heart rate sensors built into the handlebars--simply grip them for a reading of your heart rate. The built-in, two-speed CoolAire Workout fan creates air currents from 4 to 6 miles per hour, the ideal range for body cooling, so you'll stay comfortable and cool throughout your workout. The StrideSelect 825 has a footprint of 24 by 65 inches and it's 51 inches tall.

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.

You are far better off spending more money on a Life Fitness or Precor machine or a gym membership for that matter.
Ravie McDonald
The handles are loose and make an obnoxious noise and they will not tighten anymore than I have them.

I needed a replacement for jogging (my heel blew out) so I decided to check out exercise machines. My first thought was an exercise type bike, but after a tryout, my rear end got sore using those. The elliptical type that I tried out at Sears was just what I needed; it gives both the upper body and legs a thorough workout.
Assembly is straightforward; the instructions are in plain English and easy to follow. Better have 2 people to lug this thing into your house though; it's heavy.
This model with the magnetic resistance and adjustable stride is really good. The variation in resistance from easy to hard is very noticeable; unlike the cheap models. Stability is pretty good; although it rocks a little more than the expensive models.
The various "programs" aren't of interest to me; I just hop on, increase the resistance to a good level, go until I get tired, and then get off. No buttons to push. Very simple.
For the price this machine is a good deal.
This model is almost identical to Sears model XP110 except the Sears has 3 stride adjustments instead of 2.
For those not wanting to continue to use batteries, there's an unmarked outlet on the back of the console (Sears model) that accepts a 6 volt DC adapter plug.
Update after 12 months: no problems so far. It seems to be holding together without any parts breaking or unusual noises.

Great machine. Bought this to lose some weight and get started exercising, and it's perfect. I should have titled this "4 Months, 20lbs, and Happy!". I enjoy puzzles and am pretty handy, I put this together with a friend in about an hour. Its very straightforward and the instructions are clear. I do recommend having a friend help, it will make your life a lot easier as some of the pieces are pretty big.

Since then, I use the elliptical at least 3 times a week, usually 4 or 5, for at least an hour each time. I've had no problems except the occassional squeak with never lasts long. I think the screws holding the foot pedals in place could be stronger, but so far that's just a feeling -- nothing has happened to make me think they're weak.

Also -- this machine is really light for its size -- in the box it is HEAVY but honestly 1/3rd of the weight is the tremendous amount of cardboard its packed in. Once the machine was together, it can easily be moved from room to room by one person (if you have carpet -- I wouldn't try it by myself on hardwood!)

Not sure about the problems reported with other ProForm Ellipticals. Like I said, my 825 Stride Select works great. The price was unbeatable and it works just like it should -- its not a commercial elliptical, but it beats the heck out of the others I tried in the same price range. My one and only real complaint is the batteries (I buy Duracell) only last about two months or so if you use the built in fan.

GREAT MACHINE! And great price. I highly recommend it.

There were several negative reviews that I considered before my purchase. I am very happy with the ellpitical 825. It was easy to put together, smooth motion, doesn't need electricity, keeps time, calories, distance, etc. and has pre-programmed exercises with variable resistance. It doesn't make any noise and I'm very pleased.

I think I have the Stride Rite 825 as well. I like Proform.

Pros:

1. Unbeatable price

2. Gives you the workout you are looking for.

3. Light enough to move from room to room.

4. Has a fan to keep you cool.

5. Safe around kids - my 3 yr old daughter has used it too.

Cons:

1. Makes a clunking noise at times - does not bother me too much.

2. The resistance setting is not as obvious. I rotate the knob but I am not sure if it really increased the resistance until I start using it and feel the burn.

Ease of installation - I had Sears install it for me, so don't know.

I say it is a no-frills, great priced piece of equipment. I didn't want to spend more than this price on an equipment. It gives us the workout we need. My husband uses it almost everyday for close to 30 minutes. I am trying to get more regular. We have had it for several months now.

Even if I have a few minutes, I use it. Something is better than nothing.

I do not recommend buying this machine. It is wobbly at moderate to high speeds, the stride feels like you're plodding and there are few adjustments aside from increased difficulty. To its credit, your buns will get a fabulous workout due to the stride arrangement. If you have little monetary resources to allocate to a piece of exercise equipment, relatively low expectations on performance and few other alternatives then add to cart and proceed to check out. Be forewarned though, she's a rudimentary beast.

I just purchased this elliptical 2 weeks ago from Sports Authority and brought it home in my back seat and put it together in 3 hrs.alone. The screws that came with the bottle holder were the wrong size so I have never used it. I noticed immediately that the right pedal was making noises. Now even with the earphones on I can hear noise from the pedal and feel clunking. I tried to repair it but the screws are very small for the plastic pedals and no adjustmenats seem to quiet the crunchy squeak.Both pedals have a lateral rocking action as if they need tightened, although this did not exist when I first used it. In other words it progressed after 3 uses to this.The pedals sound like they're going to crack with each step.They are made of only light weight plastic which surprised me when I initially reviewed the parts because they deceptively appear to be very thick and sturdy reinforced rubber.I weigh 150 lbs. I have 3 other Proform equipments and all of them have worked perfectly. I really didnt expect any problems and thought the extra in home warranty would be a waste. I will try to return it if its not too late.I dont suggest buying this brand of elliptical.
