Detailed Overview

An exciting option for serious and committed cross-trainers, the ProForm HIIT Trainer Pro delivers total body workouts without harshly impacting the knees or other sensitive joints. Separating the machine from the rest pack, the HIIT Trainer Pro features a more vertical elliptical path that makes it somewhat of an elliptical/stepper hybrid. To diversify the workout, multi-grip handlebars move with an invigorating boxing-like motion to work the arms and core. And thanks to the alternating intensity levels, users will boost their metabolic rates not only during workouts but for many hours beyond. This machine does it all.

In fact, it will even dictate your workout for you. The 10-inch full-color touchscreen provides access to 34 built-in programs for high-intensity interval training and other workout routines. Also available (via subscription) are iFit’s automated stats tracking and various workouts including unlimited customized programs, video workouts with celebrity personal trainers, and unlimited scenic interactive tours with Google Maps.

A high quality experience can be found throughout this top-of-the-line cardio trainer. This extends right down to the 30-pound flywheel, which helps the HIIT Trainer Pro perform as smoothly as any commercial elliptical that you’d find in a gym. The drive also allows the machine accommodate a wide range of trainees’ strength levels, just like that of a health club cross-trainer.

The manufacturer’s warranty package for the HIIT Trainer is also better than most. It provides lifetime coverage for the steel frame, five years for parts, and two years for labor. The factory-direct deal online also includes a 30-day money back guarantee. Owners can feel secure knowing that any problems with the machine are covered for the immediate future.

Our Least Favorite Features

  • Fixed stride rather than variable; the vertical path is 10” and the horizontal path is 5”
  • High intensity interval training is fantastic for sparking the metabolism and sculpting the body, but it’s not recommended for everyone (such as those with high blood pressure)

The Bottom Line

High intensity interval training can deliver rather impressive results. Using ProForm’s new HIIT Trainer Pro, it’s possible to see those physical benefits without the jarring impact that other forms of interval training often involve. This unique fitness machine has high-end specs, reasonable pricing, and a valuable factory-direct warranty. That’s a rare combination too good to ignore.
