Proform 14.0 CE
The Proform 14.0 CE is one of the best elliptical trainers south of $1000 and is loaded with features that will give most competing elliptical’s a run for their money.
One of the biggest attractions for the Proform 14.0 CE is the iFit-live compatibility.
iFit uses Google Maps to mimic terrains all around the world which it does by controlling the powered ramp to go up and down simulating the actual terrain in the area that the user has input in the machine.
However, this will require an iFit Live wireless adapter that has to be purchased separately. Nevertheless, a great feature for the Proform 14.0 CE
The Proform 14.0 CE is very comfortable and stable.
That is the general review on this machine which means it must be true.
The cushioned foot pads definitely help in the comfort level along with the 18 inch stride length that is supported by a very quiet 20-lb flywheel.
There is literally very little to complain about the comfort level of the Proform 14.0 CE. Some only complained that the fan is not very useful but other than that, the Proform 14.0 CE would be perfectly comfortable.
Construction Quality (4.5/5)
The Proform 14.0 CE is made of commercial grade solid steel which makes it really strong and is comparable to pricier elliptical trainers meant to be used in a commercial gyn.
This gives the user a great platform that they can really push and have a peace of mind that it will not break. The only reason it ranks relatively lower is because it weighs at around 235 and has a maximum weight capacity is at 300 lbs which is around the weight of most people who are actually trying to lose weight.
Capacity-wise, it’s not that much of a lifter. The Proform 14.0 CE is jam-packed with features and for a user to explore all of these, it has to have a strong base and it certainly does.
Most reviews have mentioned that the assembly of the Proform 14.0 CE out of the box takes about two hours.
Technological Features (4/5)
The Proform 14.0 CE has an 18 inch stride length that is ideal for most users.
With the 18 preset workout programs, any user will be assured not to get bored whether or not they opt for the iFit Live functionality.
Having 14 resistance levels just adds power to the punch that the Proform 14.0 CE.
The idea of elliptical trainers is to keep the user engaged long enough for them to see results and that is certainly not a problem for the Proform 14.0 CE.

It goes without saying that will all of the possible variations and simulations that it brings to the table; any user with any fitness level will have a great session with the Proform 14.0 CE.
The powered incline –decline makes for an even more challenging workout.

Size and Storage (5/5)
The Proform 14.0 CE is not a large machine, measuring 79x 27 x 66 inches and weighs about 235 lbs.
It is on the heavier side but moving it around is not going to be a problem since it has the Space Saver™ Folding Design, and once folded, can be moved around using the transport wheels.
Storing the Proform 14.0 CE is not going to be an issue with all of these user-friendly features.
When it comes to price, the Proform 14.0 CE is not a push-over either.
It costs less than $800 which may sound a lot for some but considering that the Proform 14.0 CE is packed with features that are usually seen on high-end elliptical trainers, anybody will realize that it’s actually a steal at its price.
Its strength, great variation of workouts and other features that will certainly be enjoyed by any user makes this Proform 14.0 CE reasonably priced.
The Proform 14.0 CE has a lifetime warranty on the frame and one year on parts and labor.
This one area of concern for most since it can be quite expensive to have elliptical trainers, or any exercise equipment in general, to be serviced and fixed. So the one year warranty on parts and services might be a little short.
The Proform 14.0 CE has a shipping dimension of 54.75″ x 18.25″ x 34″ and can be expected within a few days after order was taken.
