ProForm Carbon E7 Elliptical Review
But clearly the big pitch made with the ProForm Carbon E7 Elliptical is the iFit 3-year Family Membership which ultimately carries the payment. Equipped with a 7-inch Smart HD Touchscreen, the unit transforms into an interactive workout party where professional trainers from a remote location can adjust the resistance levels as part of a group workout. The Audio Auxiliary Port brings dual 2” speakers to the event for either music or instruction. iFit trainers not only interact with and control the Carbon E7 by way of resistance, but the user gets a dynamic virtual experience gliding through cities and trails around the world, or back to a studio class with others. Every training session is automatically recorded and tracked with results put to use in developing future fitness plans. A wide variety of trainers are available at finger’s touch, and training styles from cross-training to HIIT are all available. A library now containing thousands of pre-recorded workouts are available as well, giving the user total freedom in their pursuits. Heart rate is monitored with the EKG Grip Pulse Heart Rate Sensor and progress is checked along the route to wellness. After the three-year iFit membership is complete, an auto-renewal will occur unless the user specifically opts out of the program. At that point, they still have a paid-for machine with all trimmings as well as the tablet full of data.
The unit is equipped with front-mounted wheels for easy transport around the home or gym. This model’s warranty package includes a 10-year frame, 2-year parts, and 1-year labor guarantee. Considering the all the details in the deal, it’s hard not to give a hearty thumbs up to the ProForm Carbon E7.
