The ProForm 14.0 CE elliptical has a power incline to isolate more muscle groups so you can achieve faster results.
Featuring a 5" backlit LCD display, the ProForm 14.0 CE elliptical shows your speed, time, distance, pulse, resistance and calories burned. The 18 built-in workout apps, designed by a certified personal trainer, will automatically adjust the resistance of the machine to give you a great workout every time, and it includes entertainment features such as the iPod-compatible music port and two 2-inch speakers.
The full specs are:
*Requires iFit® Live wireless adapter (sold separately).
UPDATE: The 14.0CE has been discontinued and replaced with the new SmartStrider 735. You can check it out as well as the other new models in the series on sale here.
The ProForm 14.0 CE elliptical features an inertia-enhanced 20-pound flywheel for smooth resistance, a commercial-grade frame that supports up to 300 pounds, Soft Touch upper-body grips one the handlebars, heart rate sensors, and cushioned pedals.
The power incline has 10, 15, 20, and 25 percent increment settings that can target different muscle groups based on the amount of incline. When combined with the 14 challenging resistance levels, this trainer will help take your workout to the next level.
With a WiFi internet network in your home, you can have access to even more programs as well as design your own. From the iFit website, you can download workouts with Jillian Michaels, the trainer from The Biggest Loser, as well as add a nutrition and activity tracker, and more.
The iFit technology also lets you access Google Maps to simulate running or walking over streets, trails, and terrain anywhere in the world. Note: access to the iFit® Live website is optional and requires a membership of $129 a year.
Reviews on the new ProForm 14.0 CE have been promising though they are limited to comments on the very solid frame and smooth, quiet pedaling motion — none of them had reviewed the iFit technology, which still has some software issues more than a year after its launch.
The ProForm 14.0 CE does take more time to assemble than other ellipticals, and the short one-year warranty is a concern; however, you can opt to buy an extended service plan from ProForm, which runs about $90 for the first year, and goes up to $150 for three years (the best deal).
The ProForm 14.0 CE elliptical is a good value at $799, but if you don’t want the iFit Live feature or don’t care for an LCD screen, you can go with a front drive Horizon EX-69 or Livestrong LS8.0E, or rear drive Lifecore LC-985VG or Yowza Largo trainer.
They all sell for around $799 and get excellent reviews.
