Strong Points: For a sub elliptical (at time of review), the Proform 925 SpaceSaver is very well equipped The adjustable stride length from 18″ to 20″ would mean that users of most heights should be able to find a length suitable for them A 350 lb weight capacity is on the high end for an elliptical in this price range Pretty much all Ellipticals have an incline option but the same cannot be said about ellipticals but the Proform 925 SpaceSaver is one of those ellipticals that does allow you to adjust the incline We’re pleasantly surprised that a wireless chest strap to measure your heart rate is included Not only can the incline be adjusted, your foot pedals can be adjusted as well. This is a feature that is usually found in pricier models so we’re impressed to see this as well MP3 player, iPad holder, in-handle quick controls, and spacesaver design are all nice touches to an already well-equipped elliptical Weak Points: The 925 SpaceSaver is iFit enabled but we’re guessing you’ll still need to pay for the iFit.com membership A 3-year parts warranty and 1-year labor isn’t by any means below par for a sub- elliptical but I would feel more secure knowing that the manufacturer is willing to back up their product for a longer period of time Verdict: (At the time of review, the Proform 925 SpaceSaver was on sale for) If we were to sum up the Proform 925 SpaceSaver in a sentence, it would be that the Proform 925 SpaceSaver is an extremely competitive offering at the sale price of.

Good points: Lots of built-in workout programs Even more workout programs with the iFit card technology Built-in SpaceSaver speakers which is probably the main selling point of the SpaceSaver trainer line of Ellipticals Above average quality motor for mid sized belt Excellent parts and labor warranty Bad points: MSRP price is too high so if it’s not on sale, you’re paying an arm and a leg belt could be longer considering the price Comments: The 925 SpaceSaver Trainer Elliptical by Proform is selling for an amazing price of which is almost off the regular retail price (which is not a price you should buy at by the way.) Perhaps they’re making room for a new model to replace this one or there’s some reason that we’re not aware of but judging solely on the specs, this Proform Elliptical is as good as any other Proform Elliptical that’s being sold.

In terms of the actual quality and durability, it’s one of the better Ellipticals from Proform’s lineup. Though the MSRP is high, when you catch it on sale for say less than, it instantly becomes one of the best overall deals. Unfortunately, it isn’t often that you find it at that price so be sure to snag it if you get the chance. A good workout is one that allows a person to train every aspect of their body and enhance them. ProForm is a company that revels in this, ensuring clients and customers everywhere of an intense full body training. Their latest product, the ProForm SpaceSaver 925, is proof of that.

Keeping track of one’s health is always important even when working out.

With this machine, one can lose excess body weight in the most effective manner. For those looking for a reliable fitness machine, look no further than ProForm. The Proform SpaceSaver 925 comes with an above 3.25 CHP motor that is also coupled with a belt that is above average in spaciousness at 20”x60”. We have no complaints here as this an above average offering in this price class You also get a much coveted decline option that is still somewhat rare in 2012/2013. We expect this this to become more common though in the coming years The 10” LCD console display here is better than most sub 7” LCD/LED consoles that dominate the market Respectable 5 year parts and 2 year labor warranty Comes with an iPad Holder shelf which is something we haven’t seen anywhere else before Though the Proform SpaceSaver 925 comes with iFit built-in, you would still need to purchase a subscription. In terms of cost, this is the same as buying a wireless module for an iFit compatible machine since both costs and by buying the module, you get a free 1 year subscription anyway. Weight of the machine is not specified so there is a possibility that heavier users might not find the machine as stable as it should be. With a retail web price of, the Proform SpaceSaver 925 is currently selling at at the time of review. This would translate to about a to difference between it and the SpaceSaver 995c which is also a model. Since there is a noticeable price difference between the two, we would have hoped that the SpaceSaver 925 would dazzle us with its upgrades but admittedly, it has failed to do so. The main things the SpaceSaver 925 has going for it over the Proform SpaceSaver 995c is that it comes with a superior warranty (which often means better overall reliability) a decline option, a bigger console and a slightly more powerful motor. We most definitely appreciate the longer warranty because it almost always mean the manufacturer has more confidence in its durability but the other upgrades are more along the lines of “nice to haves” instead of necessities. That is why unless you’re the type that likes to splurge or if you feel these improvements really justify the added cost, the Proform SpaceSaver 995c is the better value. But the Proform SpaceSaver 925 is of course, the better machine of the two if money is not a concern. Reasonably priced Has all the basic features you need for an effective workout. Not many extra features Questionable construction quality Comments: The Proform 925 Spacesaver elliptical is a very unimpressive elliptical. Fortunately, it’s impressively priced at less than most days which gives it a fighting chance. Though for a hundred or two hundred dollars more, you can get something that knocks this elliptical’s socks off, even in today’s competitive elliptical trainer environment, this elliptical really isn’t all that bad. Are you looking for an elliptical that will give you a total body workout? Then, end your search as ProForm 925 SpaceSaver® Elliptical is here for you!
