The ProForm 720 E is a step up from the base 520 E elliptical in the company's value-priced Endurance series. You get a lot of nice features and capabilities without having to spend a lot of money.
The 720 E features a 5" backlit display showing your workout stats such as calories burned, distance, time and speed. It features quiet and smooth SMR magnetic resistance and a 20 lb. flywheel.
Let's take a closer look some of the important specs....
The ProForm 720 E is a nice upgrade to the previous 710 E model. Expert reviews have been very positive, and they seem to appreciate the various upgrades that have been included, without raising the price to match.
You get a generous 19" stride that adjusts to fit any user. You also get incline up to 20% in increments of 5 so you can target different muscle groups.
You can access the iFit Coach technology via your tablet, which allows you to choose any destination in the world via Google maps, and the elliptical will automatically adjust its incline to match the terrain...a very cool feature you don't find elsewhere.
iFit also gives you additional personal trainer designed workout programs on top of the 24 that are built into the machine. You can also track your workouts to help you reach your goals and share your successes with family and friends. So it's a very cool program, although it does require a nominal yearly membership free.
The 720E sits right in the middle of the front-drive Endurance series, offering more resistance levels and workouts than the 520 E. It also has a higher weight capacity and a better warranty.
At the top of the series is the 920 E, which ups the ante with a 7" full color touch screen among other enhanced features. There is definitely a difference when you use this technology, but it's not a deal breaker if you don't have it. You can always use your tablet for a similar experience.
Other nice touches on the 720 E are oversized pedals, two-speed workout fan, transport wheels, water bottle holder and leveling feet for stability.
You get a nice array of features on this elliptical, all for a very affordable price.
The ProForm 720 E is a great choice at only $799 on sale. You get incline, a nice amount of workouts, comfortable pedals, 20 resistance levels, and the popular iFit technology, among other features and comforts.
It is possible that it is going to be phased out as we have heard some rumors, but for now it is a good option for those looking for a solid entry-level machine.
If you find the touch screen option appealing, take a look at the 920 E as well, as it gives you the ability to surf the web while you work out and see the iFit maps right on the screen in front of you.
Here is your chance to rant or rave about the elliptical you use at home or at the fitness center.
