The great thing about the Proform Hybrid Trainer is that just like the name suggests, it is actually two machines in one. For losing weight, burning calories, toning muscles and getting an overall total-body-workout stick to the regular standing position using the elliptical arms. If you’re feeling a little sluggish that day or want to work on your cardio. You can sit down on the comfortable built in chair and now you have an exercise bike. With upper-body workout arms and oversized, adjustable pedals you really do get a complete full body workout. The pedals are adjustable to allow for easy positioning in either the elliptical or bike position. The large LCD screen is also adjustable so you can monitor your workout either sitting or standing.
If you are short on time, want to yield more muscle tone, or increase the intensity to further burn more calories. You can choose from 14 resistance levels, using the built in SMR Silent Magnetic Resistance. Shifting between resistance levels is a smooth and natural process. The chair provides optimal back support along with more cushion than most exercise bikes. The adjustable pedals are large enough to allow for multiple foot positions providing great stability and optimal comfort when exercising. The low-impact and natural movement of the pedals allow for reduced strain on the joints allowing for longer workouts resulting in more calories burned when toning up the lower body.
No need to worry if you’re slacking off and slowing down. The Proform Hybrid Trainer keeps you in your desired fat burning zone. The precision RPM meter allows you to choose your tempo and an indicator light will tell you when to speed up or slow down to maximize your weight loss goals. The EKG Grip Pulse dual handles have sensors that easily monitor your heart rate throughout the workout. The large display LCD, displays your distance, time, resistance, calories burned and pulse as you exercise. The Proform Hybrid Trainer also includes 14 workout apps developed by a certified personal trainer. Each workout will alter the resistance levels allowing you maximize your time for faster results.

The Proform Hybrid Trainer recieved an overall average of 4/5 stars. Most people love the fact that they have a choice between sitting or standing. There are some handicapped people loving the exercise bike feature and people with knee and joint issues liking how smooth it is on the joints. A couple people said there was some squeaking but almost everyone else claimed that it either doesnt make a sound, or is “whisper quiet”. Some people complained that it took them longer to assemble that they had thought. While others claimed assembly was easy and fast. A lot of people love the 14 workout apps that are included and claim they can really feel “feel the burn”.
In conclusion due to the fact this is both and elliptical and an exercise bike in one. That you can be seated or standing. There is no reason, short on time or short on energy that you should miss a workout. This elliptical comes highly recommended and saving the best for last is probably the incredibly low price. For what this machine does, you will probably not be able to find one similar at a lower price.
