The ProForm 990 CSE elliptical trainer is a good looking machine that offers a number of interesting features, including the large pedals that allow for different foot positions, a Power Intensity Ramp™ to go from 10° to 30° to target specific muscles in the lower leg, upper leg, and the gluts, and upper body handlebars with in-handle controls to work the core, chest, back, and arms.
The iFit® Live programming allows for interactive workouts designed by Jillian Michaels of The Biggest Loser and other certified personal trainers.
In addition to the workouts, in which the audio gives coaching instructions and encouragement, the software allows the user to download Google Maps™ to follow along paths from all over the world. You can also manage a personal profile online at the iFit Live website (subscription required).
Reviews on the 990 CSE have been among the best in the under-$1000 ProForm line of elliptical trainers. That doesn’t mean it is ProForm’s best value; for that, check out the ProForm 600 ZNE. It costs less than the 990 CSE yet comes with most of the same features.
Although it is listed as new for 2010, the ProForm 990 CSE elliptical trainer is basically the same model as the NordicTrack AudioStrider 990 Pro. Both ProForm and NordicTrack are ICON Fitness products.
The 990 CSE is actually one of ProForm’s better models, but at $899, it doesn’t compare in terms of quality, warranty, and the first rate customer service offered by elliptical manufacturers such as Livestrong, Horizon, Sole and Yowza.
