The Proform 480e LE Elliptical – Feature-Packed Machine

By Darren Lobaugh

The Proform 480e LE is an elliptical trainer that makes home exercising both effective and fun. It has some of the features both fitness enthusiasts and athletes deem important, all in one compact and affordable fitness machine. After all, it comes from Proform, a noted company that’s been making fitness equipment for many years now.

An 18-inch stride length targets as much muscles in the lower body as it provides the legs with maximum swing. Allowing you to position your feet comfortable for you is the large-sized non-slip pedals. Don’t worry about your upper body not getting a workout. The soft-grip handle bars take care of that by also targeting your arms as you stride.

Behind its friction-less and fluid pedal motion is the SMR, or Silent Magnetic Resistance, innovation. Such mechanism relays resistance to the flywheel in a magnetic manner. In addition, SMR provides you with as much as 10 resistance levels, accessible by simply pushing a button on the console. The 480e LE provides the kind of challenge your workout needs as your fitness level advances, so there’s no need to purchase a different machine.

Then there’s also the iFit Workout Card feature, which makes you feel like a fitness trainer is working with you. It’s a card that you insert into the console. A recording will guide you through varying workout routines, designed by a certified fitness expert. Such feature provides you with the best possible 8-week elliptical program.

The iFit Workout Card won’t work if it wasn’t for the 480e LE’s built in speaker sound system. This feature also enables you to plug in your portable music player into the fitness machine. Now your workout sessions need not be a drag as you listen to your favorite high-intensity tracks, playing at high volume.

Displaying some relevant workout information is the blue-backlit LCD screen on the machine’s console. It displays your distance covered, resistance level, etc. There’s also an EKG Heart Rate Monitor that let’s you know if you’ve reached that maximum fat-burning zone. To keep you cool as you workout, there’s the AutoBreeze Workout Fan which comes in 3 settings.

Worry not about the Proform 480e LE elliptical trainer taking up much space in your home, as it’s so compact. This, thanks to its SpaceSaver design. And that’s not all: the base and the pedals fold up easily! This fitness machine has a weight capacity of up to 250 lbs. And is backed up by a 5-year frame warranty.
