ProForm Hybrid Trainer and Recumbent Bike

The ProForm Hybrid Trainer is an affordable machine that offers 2-in-1 functionality of both, an elliptical trainer and a recumbent bike. To switch between the elliptical and a bike modes and vice versa, you can easily adjust the pedals to suit each of these options.

It’s an entry level machine, so don’t expect a club-level workout, although ProForm Hybrid trainer does offer all you may need at home –  variety, comfort, and a low-impact cardio workout.

The ProForm Hybrid Trainer is suitable for anyone who wants to have several types of workout options, but may not have enough room in their home for two large machines.

 

Features

 

Display

This trainer offers simple, but easy to use intuitive LCD console with display screen that clearly shows all the information you need while training.

Review Summary

Though ProForm Hybrid Trainer is an entry level machine, it offers excellent value for money.

It’s unique by delivering a two-in-one machine and its price is more than reasonable for what it offers.

Yes, the assembly procedure could have been smoother, but here is the deal; for less than $400 you get an Elliptical Trainer and a Recumbent Bike to work out both your upper and lower body, so it’s definitely worth considering.

ProForm Hybrid Trainer offers excellent price-performance value in its class
