Expert Reviews

Most of the experts feel that it’s a good, well-built mid level machine with features that users will really enjoy. They too had difficulty assembling the 14.0RE, and recommended that if you can opt for the full assembly option to avoid the frustration of having to go through it yourself. Plus if there are any damaged or missing parts, the installer will be responsible for it and you’ll have a much better chance of getting satisfaction than you would if you just called up the company yourself.

The critics like the adjustable stride, the multitude of programs and resistance levels and the decent ProForm warranty.

User Reviews

As far as users are concerned, it’s really a mixed bag. The positive reviews focused on the fact that it was a great machine, offering a good workout, smooth ride and the adjustable stride was a plus for taller users. The negatives focused on the fact that it was quite difficult to assemble, some of the parts came broken, and customer service was not very helpful. The latter is a common complaint for Icon Fitness, as well as the industry in general.

Conclusion

The ProForm 14.0 RE shows promising features that are currently only on some of the higher-end models. Just be aware of the potential for problems if you choose to assemble it yourself, and know that customer service can be a real pain in the you know what should you have to call up about something that goes wrong with the machine.
