QUICK REVIEW

Pros Users enjoy tons of options with the brand new Endurance 920 E front-drive elliptical trainer. With 24 digital resistance levels and an adjustable power ramp, it's easy to modify the intensity of your workouts and target specific muscle groups. The 20” power adjustable stride and adjustable pedals also make it easy to personalize your workout experience to fit your individual comfort needs so that you can get the best workout for you and your goals. If those aren't enough options, check out the 32 built-in workout apps or connect to iFit to unlimited programs and advanced tracking features (subscription required).
Cons As with other models by ProForm, there's not a lot of space on the console area. They did add an integrated tablet holder, which is a nice touch, but unless you use the water bottle holder, there's really nowhere to put your keys or other accessories you might have. Another minor con to mention is that in order to use the iFit program, you must have a subscription. Subscription cost is $99/year.
Summary The new Endurance 920 E really impresses with its multiple options that allow the user to fully personalize their workout experience, from comfort to performance. It's easy to meet any number of fitness goals with this low-impact elliptical trainer, and the great program variety acts like your very own personal trainer keeping you on track and motivated throughout your workout. There are a few things missing from the console area, and a subscription to iFit is required to be able to use the program's many options, but overall these aren't deal breakers for this highly versatile trainer.

ProForm Endurance 920E Elliptical Detailed Overview

The brand new ProForm Endurance 920 E front-drive elliptical trainer features a heavier 25 pound inertia-enhanced flywheel, along with additional options not available on the former Endurance 720 E model. Retailing for just under $1000, the 920 E is also equipped with a sleeker design and updated Bluetooth enabled console.

The Endurance 920 E offers several options that allow the user to customize the workout experience, like 24 digital resistance levels and a 0 to 20 degrees adjustable power ramp that modifies the shape of your stride in order to target specific muscle groups for better toning and more efficient calorie burning. The stride is a comfortable 20”, which is adjustable, and the oversized, cushioned pedals can also be adjusted to fit individual needs. Many elliptical trainers don’t offer this feature so people complain of their feet and toes “falling asleep” in the pedals, but this feature prevents any sort of discomfort.

The console is equipped with a 7″ full color touchscreen display with an integrated tablet holder, dual-grip EKG(TM) heart rate monitor with chest strap, an iPod compatible Intermix Acoustics 2.0 Sound System, and a USB charging port. In addition, users have access to a two-speed CoolAire (TM) workout fan and water bottle holder. The Endurance 920 E provides 32 built-in workout apps and iFit compatibility. With iFit, if you have the subscription, you can access tons of professionally designed workouts along with unique routes powered by Google Maps. Finally, this console is also really easy to use, with an open layout and one-touch controls for resistance, level, and programs.

This model is built with a commercial-gauge solid steel frame and Silent Magnetic Resistance (SMR) so it’s both quiet and reliable. The heavy flywheel also adds to the quiet and realistic, natural stride motion you’ll experience with the Endurance 920 E; and if you need mobility features, this trainer is equipped with transport wheels and adjustable leveling feet so it can be used on either carpet or hardwood floors with ease.

ProForm offers a warranty that covers the lifetime of the frame, 3 years on parts and 1 year on labor, and an AC adapter is included with this trainer so that you can prolong the longevity of the machine by plugging it in when an outlet is accessible.
