Build Quality

The ProForm Smart Strider’s frame is highly durable and made of commercial-gauge solid steel construction. The frame is built to last with a lifetime warranty, but will only support users up to 275 pounds. Some users have reported that the frame can be a bit wobbly due to the folding mechanism.


This particular machine is extremely easy to assemble, and only takes a 3 step process to go from box to workout ready!

The user needs only to hold the handles firmly while they work out, and their heart rate is displayed on the machine’s built-in LCD monitor.
