Advantages

Entry-Level Practicality

  • The ProForm Hybrid Trainer does bring together the advantages of having an elliptical machine, and an indoor exercise bike in just one machine. You don’t have to shell out extra cash and move your furniture to accommodate two separate machines.
  • Having an entry-level, low-impact cardio machine at home is quite practical for people who have lower back pain, and with sensitive knees and joints. The recumbent bike mode is great for those with back pains, while both set-ups are favorable for people with weak joints.
  • As always, the transport wheels are really useful in lightening the load, in case you need to move this piece of equipment around.

Disadvantages

Too Much, Too Little

  • A major concern that this product needs to address in future releases would be its 15-inch stride. It is just too short, especially if you are using the elliptical machine function. The exercise taken from the machine may not even be optimal at all, especially for tall people because of its short stride length.
  • The seats are not adjustable. As in the issue with the stride, this can make exercising uncomfortable.
  • Some squeaking sounds can occur after some use. This happens if the screws, nuts, and bolts are tightened too much, or if you use the machine frequently. If you want this machine to quit squeaking, some maintenance and frequent lubrication is needed.
  • I recommend purchasing a heart rate monitor separate from the machine. As in most cases, the grip pulse heart rate monitoring is rarely accurate.

Review Summary:

Why should you buy an indoor bike and an elliptical separately when you have the ProForm Hybrid Trainer? This machine combines the benefits of an elliptical and a recumbent bike, and is perfect for people who prefer variety in their low-impact exercise regimen.
