Experience comfort and stability with the ProForm 290 CSR . With the adjustable easy glide seat and easy entry upright. The 4 interactive games Calorie Blaster, Fat Blocker, Black Jack and Texas Hold'em offer a fun challenge to your workout.
Combing entertainment and comfort in equal measure, the ProForm 290 CSR recumbent exercise bike is ideal for home gyms. The 290 CSR is equipped with a GameFit interactive video game system, which includes four interactive video games to liven up your exercise routine. The harder you work when playing Blackjack, Texas Hold 'Em, Fat Blocker, or Calorie Destroyer, the easier the games become. There's no better incentive to stay fit. As an alternative, you can use the 20 personal trainer workouts to shake up your fitness regimen. Each personal trainer workout automatically adjusts the resistance level to help you achieve aerobic, weight loss, or performance goals. The speed and time of each workout is predetermined, so the only thing you have to worry about is pressing start.
It's the built-in sound system and iFit compatibility that really distinguish the 290 CSR, however. The sound system includes an Interplay music port that lets you plug your iPod or MP3 player into the console, along with an Intermix Acoustics 2.0 sound system. The system produces a broad range of frequencies and rich, equalized sound. The bike's iFit workout card technology, meanwhile, helps you lose weight, feel great, and improve performance in just eight weeks. Each card (sold separately) is designed by a certified personal trainer and plugs directly into the bike's console, where it automatically adjusts your resistance while the voice of Jillian Michaels, "America's toughest trainer," coaches you through each workout.
Comfort-wise, the 290 CSR boasts a recumbent-style frame that's easier to get on and off than a traditional bike. Other features include 16 digital resistance levels; dual-grip EKG heart rate monitors built into the handlebars; an adjustable, oversized seat with a lumbar support; a Grafixx touch dial and touchscreen display that tracks your time, distance, calories, and pulse; and a 300-pound capacity. The 290 CSR is protected by a five-year warranty on the frame and a 90-day warranty on parts and labor.
When most people hear the name ProForm, they automatically think of treadmills. That's because in its early days ProForm revolutionized the treadmill industry with its now-world-famous SpaceSaver foldaway design. ProForm continues its tradition of quality and innovation today, with cutting-edge advances in cushioning, electronics, and reliability. Fortunately, ProForm wasn't satisfied with treadmills, unveiling a complete line of exercise bikes, elliptical machines, weight benches, and more--all geared to providing the most effective workout available.

My husband put the bike together in about an hour and a half, it seemed to be very easy to put together. I love the seat, sooo comfortable and adjusts very easily. The pedals/foot straps are comfortable (not too tight) and the bike pedals very smoothly. I love the speakers for my ipod. My husband, who is in great shape, has started to ride the bike too because he loves the games! They get easier the faster you pedal and the controls are right on the handles next to the seat. I am using the bike every day and would really recommend it for rehab or for fit people who like to exercise while they play video games. It comes with 20 workout programs and you can get iFit programs too, which I hope to use someday! For this price I don't think you can find a better recumbent.
I've had the bike for a year now. I still love it but around the year mark the pedals quit adjusting for resistance. The workouts on the console work fine but the resistance doesn't change. I need to have my husband or son take it apart and see what broke and then hopefully get the part to repair it. Will update again when that is complete.
When the time comes to bring it into the house be absolutely sure help is available even if you are a full strength person. It's more of a safety thing than a strength thing. Then before you get in, decide exactly what room you want this in. I almost attached the handles to the body and that would have been a bad thing because it would have taken some careful maneuvering to get it in properly.
The blister pack with the screws, bolts and Allen wrenches (a nice touch to have included them) is really handy. Each set of screws and bolts are identified on the pack and that ties in perfectly with the instructions. I just wish they included the same info on the Allen wrenches.
Except for the display, putting this joy together was fairly simple and this is where the second hand comes in. Four hands are needed to attach the back and the seat. The display can be done by one person but two are better. The display installation was a nightmare and needs some serious redo on the next iteration of this well made machine.
When the workouts began they went off without a hitch. The seat stayed in place even though some have mentioned some slippage. The pedals worked well. All in all this is the best made of our three Proform products (eliptical and treadmill) and is some sturdy bike. I did not expect it to be so strong. Moving it from one location is simple and easy even though it is quite heavy at a little over 100 pounds.
After a significant go at the process I'll return and fill in missing parts if any and report on the effectiveness of the purpose. Shucks, if you do not lose weight or lower blood pressure then something might be wrong. More later.
