The 2012 model ProForm 410 CE elliptical offers iFit® workout card technology, an audio plug-in port, built-in speakers, and traction-control pedals.
The blue backlit backlit display has multiple information fields showing speed, time, distance, resistance, pulse, and calories burned, plus a 5x7 workout matrix with a graphic representation of your workout.
The features of the ProForm 410 CE are:
UPDATE: The 410CE has been phased out to make room for the all new SmartStrider series, a vastly improved rear-drive model. You can see the all new models on sale here.
The rear-drive ProForm 410 CE elliptical offers an 18" elliptical motion, 20 levels of SMR™ Silent Magnetic Resistance, hand grip heart rate monitors, and a handy MP3 plug-in slot.
The pedals are adjustable with two angle selections in the toe-to-heel slant; however, customer reviews have indicated that this feature is actually less comfortable than traditional pedal design. It also has a SpaceSaver® design which means the flywheel and pedals fold forward to provide more free floor space when not in use.
The 16 workouts include 8 weight loss and 8 timed programs. Another pre-installed feature is the iFit® Workout Card Technology slot on the console. Included with your purchase of the elliptical is a free Jillian Michaels' iFit® Workout card to help you lose weight.
The card plugs into the console and contains 8 weeks of audio coaching and progressive weight-loss workouts led by Jillian herself. You can also buy other workout cards from iFit that will be compatible with this machine.
This is an easy one to skip. The ProForm 410 CE elliptical is a fairly simple model; it does not have an incline ramp, or an adjustable stride length, and user reviews indicate that the odd pedal design can actually cause foot pain, not prevent it.
Overall, this model gets average and below average reviews, and even lacks key features other Proform ellipticals offer at this price range such as an incline ramp. We suggest you take a closer look at Horizon and Livestrong machines for $799.
Here is your chance to rant or rave about the elliptical you use at home or at the fitness center.
