Pro-Form, Schwinn & Other Fitness Machines

I always wanted to have a biker gang, but I never learned how to ride a bike. Well, I found a solution! With these bikes, I stay upright without having to keep my balance. This way, I can focus on more important biker gang work, like bookkeeping and checking our itineraries.

I can see how this would work if I used it WHILE trying to eat.

How is the Pro-Form 2.0 ES in comparison with the Schwinn 120? Because honestly that's the particular one i'm looking for.

Overwhelmingly poor reviews over on HSN for the Pro-Form PFEL04911 Smart Strider http://www.hsn.com/products/proform-smart-strider-spacesaver-elliptical/6647352

Wow, those are terrible. I'm glad I read your post

In my experience Proform is BAD. Customer service ranges from non-existent to insane: there was zero response or acknowledgment to my customer service requests for a big problem with the machine I bought.

Luckily I bought it from a local store with a customer-friendly return policy (Sports Authority).

A couple of months later, I started getting random replacement parts from ICON Fitness (the company that owns Pro-Form, Reebok, Nordic Track, etc). I continued getting random replacement parts on a random basis for the next 18 months. But there's only voicemail to answer phone calls.

Bizarre. Not something I'm willing to spend my money on again. I advise avoiding any of these brands completely.

You know, if they sent you enough replacement parts, you could build a whole new one, and then return it to them. Pure profit!

The HealthRider H300 Elliptical is only $219 at Wal-Mart.

Mixed reviews. 3.5/5

Yeah, given the bad reviews I'd spend the extra $4 and get it at your local Wal-Mart so that you can return it locally if there are issues.

So...based on the time to buy stats....there was only one Schwinn 450 available? Bummer!

I bought it on here to save on the sales tax too. Call me a cheapskate but I'll take the chance with it. lol

As someone who just bought an elliptical machine, after doing hours of research, I can say that exercise equipment is one area not to skimp on.
Nothing worse than buying a "good deal" only to have it listed on Craigslist a couple months later because it turned out to be crap.

Hopefully they aren't charging you for those parts...That happened to me in the 90's with Starbucks coffee. I bought one and then they charged me everyday for one for the next 12 years...

Sam's actually has it for the same price shipping included. And in Texas sales tax is same for Woot and Sam's. So Sam's saves you $5. Come Woot you can do better than Sam's!

Don't waste your money on the Pro-Form Vibe FX Vibration Upright. Exercising by standing in one place and not moving? Sound a little too good to be true to anyone?
