ProForm 19.0 RE Elliptical

8.4 Total Score

For a trainer under $1000, this comes with a lot of balls and whistles. We simply love the adjustable oversized pedals, strong built quality and the feeling of its stride. Only thing we hate about this machine is its iPad holder (as we have to take our ipad from its case and the holder seems pretty tight). Some customers have reported about service issue, but we haven’t encounter any issues (yet).

Assembly

Assembling this trainer is quite easy. It requires two individuals to do the job. The manual includes step by step directions for you to assemble it at ease. It is recommended that you dispose the packing materials only once all the parts are properly assembled. A Phillips screwdriver, one rubber mallet and one adjustable wrench will be needed besides the other tools that are already included to assemble the trainer.

heart-rate-proform-19-150x150Heart rate monitor

This trainer comes with hands free Polar Wireless Chest Strap. We always prefer this over contact grip HRM. we have tested it against other sensor and result is 100% flawless. It also has built-in handlebar sensors that keep a “very accurate” record of your heart rate that you can closely monitor while exercising. But if you are doing Heart Rate zone training, this “very accurate” is not accurate enough. we always suggest to use the chest strap if you are doing heart rate zonal training.

Display

This elliptical comes with a 7” backlit display which is quite clear. The display comes with a large viewing angle. So regardless of your height, you will always be able to monitor your progress while exercising. The display will show your heart rate, distance, resistance, speed and the calories that you burnt through exercising. And all this information can easily be read on the while you workout.
