The HIIT Trainer is one of the newest additions to ProForm's elliptical lineup, offering a new way to workout with faster results in a shorter period of time. You can burn more calories and get a more efficient cardio workout, all while enjoying the many features these hybrid machines have to offer.
The HIIT Trainer is black and silver with fire red accents with a bright 7" backlit display. It takes up half the space of the typical elliptical, making it a smart choice for the home gym.
Let's take a look at some of the best features...
The new ProForm HITT Trainers have received good reviews thus far, as users are happy about the ability to burn more calories in a shorter period of time.
You are essentially getting two machines in one, sort of a stepper with elliptical arms and more freedom of movement. It is very similar to the popular Bowflex Max Trainer, with the same type of movement and focus on interval training.
The HITT Trainer gives you a little more than the Max Trainer, however, with 24 different resistance levels to choose from and 32 workout programs. We like the multigrip handles which allow you grasp the machine multiple ways, so you can choose whatever grip is most comfortable for you.
You also have iFit Coach, available with a yearly membership fee, which gives you Google map integration to choose a location anywhere in the world, an unlimited array of additional workouts and the ability to track and monitor your progress over time.
You can view iFit on your tablet or smart phone, as opposed to right on the elliptical itself with the up-level HIIT Trainer Pro model. That model has a touch screen display with internet capability.
Other features include iPod compatibility for your music, a CoolAire workout fan, oversized cushioned pedals, water bottle holder and transport wheels.
Anything we didn't like? Not really. It does not have wireless heart rate monitoring like the Pro model, but for the price you can't really expect that. All in all this is a great hybrid elliptical for the home gym.
The new ProForm HIIT Trainer is great for those who want to burn a lot of calories and get an efficient workout. It's space friendly, well designed, and has a ton of workouts, resistance levels and capabilities.
For under $1000 on sale, you'll be hard pressed to find an elliptical that offers you more. If you want the touch screen and wireless heart rate monitoring, check out the Pro version as well.
