How long will the Proform 225 CSX Upright last?

The Proform 225 CSX Upright is offered by quite a few of the lower market retailers such as Walmart and cannot be expected to last quite as long as its well-known, higher-priced family members. While the warranty shows Proform still offers quality even at a discounted price, you will not see this bike showcased on their website.

Brief Overview

The Proform 225 CSX stands out among its competitors by offering not only the Proform name (name brands mean a lot to some people) but their lower-priced bike warranty along with the ever-present iFit capabilities. This bike is well-equipped to enhance most levels of workout and offers you the will to not only meet, but rise above and beyond your fitness goals.

Overall Quality

The Proform 225 CSX offers cutting age technology due to the IFit membership offering. You can work with top trainers, embark on global workouts personalized to your personal fitness level, while turning your living room into a world-class studio. Proform has also upped their weight capacity for this lower-priced bike – a whopping 275 lbs. in comparison to its 250 lb. weight capacity colleagues. The well-cushioned seat offers a comfortable ride during the 20 different preset workout apps and test your endurance on many levels. A trademarked StepThru frame allows for greater ease in mounting and dismounting while the adjustable pedal straps secure your feet for safe jaunting to your desired goal. The freewheeling clutch supports a grand imitation of the outside cycling experience while built in heart rate sensors monitor you during your workout so you do not arbitrarily pass out.
