There’s just no way that a person will ever settle for living with excess body weight. This means that they would do everything possible in order to acquire the physique they’ve always dreamt of having. The ProForm 710 E is a prime example of a machine that guarantees this. The ProForm 710 E includes 20 pre-programmed workouts that people can take advantage of anytime they want. These are all varied in execution, and one can simply expect effective weight loss. With help from a certified fitness trainer on their design, one will be receiving a totally professional workout session. There is much importance placed in keeping track of one’s health during workouts, and the dual grip EKG monitor does so quite well. This device can help users maintain their heart rate as they work out. With it, a person who exercises will be getting the results they want without pushing their body beyond its limit. There’s also the soft grips to be happy about. Not only are people going to be working out their lower extremities, but also their upper body too. These grips provide efficient elliptical training for more caloric burn. The oversized nature of the pedals also prevents injury. One doesn’t have to maintain an uncomfortable position while working out. They can simply position their feet in the most secure manner without risking getting injured through training. The ProForm 710 E will certainly please a lot of fitness enthusiasts. This machine is everything that people could ever want when it comes to a total body workout. It’s effective, low-impact and can engage the entire body into losing weight and developing muscle tone as well. Good Points: It always good to see an elliptical feature multiple , adjustable strides along with multiple inclines to choose from. (We believe these have to be adjusted manually however.) Lots of standard “extra features” such as 20 workout programs, workout fans, speakers for your iPod, a reasonably modern albeit small console, and online functions via iFit (requires an extra for wireless module.) Bad Points: The Proform 710E has more similarities than differences to its little brother, the 510E. They are similar in quality and specs but the difference is anywhere from a hundred to two hundred dollars We recommend exercise fanatics to look at the current crop of Nordictrack ellipticals instead. The Proform 710 E is already considered one of the better Proform ellipticals but if you are looking for an elliptical that can keep up with your passion for fitness, Nordictrack ellipticals are a better choice Verdict: After having reviewed both the Proform 710 E and the Proform 510 E back to back, we have to say the 710E disappointed us a bit. The reason is that there is a price difference at the time of review between the two models yet we really had trouble finding anything that would justify the added cost. You get a few extra programs, a few more resistance levels and perhaps some improvements to the quality of construction. It is this last point I think that is of most value but it is pretty tough to justify the extra when we don’t even know how much better it is in reality. That is why we recommend you go with the higher end Nordictrack ellipticals if reliability is a big issue for you.
