How long will the Proform Pro 16.9 last?

Constructed from solid steel, the Proform SMART PRO 16.9 Elliptical weighs over 250 lbs. and holds a maximum capacity of a hearty 325 lbs. It is built to last with moderate to heavy use and will last for years with proper care and maintenance. Proform covers the SMART PRO 16.9 with a 10-year frame warranty, 2 years on parts, and 1 year on labor which is decent in today’s market considering some models have little to no warranty coverage at all.

Brief Overview

The Proform SMART PRO 16.9 Elliptical is our 2022 4th place Best Buy Winner for the $1,500 - $1,999 price range. It contains commercial grade features and comes with free 1-year iFit subscription bringing the joys of trekking world-wide destinations and immersive training experiences to the comfort of a home workout setting. The SMART PRO offers magnetic resistance with a front drive design that is built to last through a range of fitness level users and is a quality investment for a discerning purchaser.

Overall Quality

The Proform SMART PRO 16.9 Elliptical has a 20” adjustable stride length making it optimal for those of both the shorter and taller persuasion. It has a hefty 32 lb. flywheel offering smooth, frictionless transitions between 26 levels of resistance that intensify training and tone mushy muscles. Deeper training is achieved through a 20-degree incline that targets alternative muscle groups during exercise sessions. Resistance and incline are both digitally accessed with quick control buttons located on the console beside a 10” touchscreen that displays both performance stats and interactive workouts within the iFit network. Users not satisfied with 10” can provide their own streaming devices which sits safely on the integrated tablet holder. Other amenities on the SMART PRO 16.9 include a water bottle holder, an audio port with 2” speakers, and a workout fan.
