The ProForm 1200E Elliptical is a machine that can help you get into shape in a short period of time. The 1200E is unusual to the ProForm line as it is not packed with all the bells & whistles many of the other ellipticals in the ProForm line do have. It is simply a heavier and better designed machine that will offer a longer service life. If you are serious about your workout, this may be the one for you.
