Overall Rating


Pros The Pro-Form 720 E is one of the newest elliptical machines available from a long-trusted brand of fitness equipment. iFit compatible and complete with moving arms and adjustable foot pedals, the 720 E is quickly making plenty of friends in the home fitness business. The warranty is also much more generous than its predecessor, the 520 E. This one comes with a lifetime frame warranty, two years on parts and one year on labor.
Cons A five-inch backlit display is not that impressive compared to other elliptical machines out there. If you’re looking for something interactive and full-color, there are definitely plenty of better options. However it is also important to note that this machine is iFit compatible, meaning that if you have a tablet, you can enjoy full-color workouts featuring actual terrain and landscapes from all over the world.
Summary The Pro-Form 720 E is iPod compatible with mp3 input and a USB charging station. This allows you to be productive for the rest of your day as you workout, charging up both your body and your access to the rest of the world. The 720 E also comes with 20 digital resistance levels and 24 workout apps for those who are ready to truly get serious about fitness. Finally, monitor your heart rate effectively with a dual-grip monitor that will guide you through your target zone for optimal results.
