ProForm 990 CSE Elliptical Review

The ProForm 990 CSE Elliptical is a colorful and beautifully constructed elliptical with lots of bells and whistles.

The ProForm 990 CSE Elliptical comes with a rear drive system to offer a smooth and comfortable workout experience and oversized pedals to accommodate different foot positions. It has an adjustable stride from 18” to 20” to accommodate users with different heights and to work different muscle groups. The 990 CSE is a large elliptical that has footprint of 81.5” x 27”, but the unique SpaceSaver Design feature will help you to recapture you living space when the elliptical is not in use by simply folding the innovative pedals and base. Pretty neat!

One of the coolest features of ProForm 990 CSE Elliptical is iFit LiveTM. The iFit LiveTM feature allows you to experience trails around the world powered by Google Maps, work out with Jillian Michaels, receive automatic workout downloads, customize your own fitness programs, manage your profile online, and much more. A wireless connection is required. iFit LiveTM subscription and module is sold separately.

The ProForm 990 CSE Elliptical also has a compatible music port that allows you to plug-in your iPod or MP3 player into the Interplay Music Port and listens to your music through the Intermix AcousticsTM 2.0 Built-In sound system.

Additional features of ProForm 990 CSE Elliptical:

  • 16 Digital Resistance Levels
  • 20 built-In Workouts
  • Dual-Grip CardioGripTM Heart Rate Monitor
  • Power Intensity RampTM offers up to 10-30 degrees of incline

The ProForm 990 CSE Elliptical comes with a Lifetime Warranty on Frame and 1-year on Parts and Labor. This elliptical has a respectable warranty but we recommend adding an extended warranty that will cover all these cool features.

The ProForm 990 CSE Elliptical is an entry level machine, packed with bells & whistles. This is an entry level machine that is not built for heavy use. However, it is a wonderful entry level machine that will offer dependable use for someone needing a workout 4 to 5 times a week, 30 minutes or so a day. And all the cool features make it one to lust after.
