Don’t buy this product and save yourself a lot of hassle. In summary it’s not build very well nor is it robust. Brought Sept 2015. After building it the console didn’t work from day 1 and after dealing with support (very helpful) from Sweatband I eventually got a replacement console. Again from day one, no matter how much I adjusted and readjusted and lubricated the joints I couldn’t stop the thing from squeaking. Finally after 4 months I managed to stop the squeaking after I yet again tried to readjust it out of sheer frustration at the squeaking. Now 8 months later, the welded plate that holds the foot plate up has failed (bent) and the footplate has snapped off as it is not supported. Neither I nor my partner are overweight and we’re relatively short so nothing to do with how we’re using it. In summary don’t buy this product, as whilst we may just be unlucky with it, I have serious doubts about the quality of the product.

Shauna

First cross trainer I have ever owned and so far so good. My bf put it together in about an hour and we have been using it every other day for a while. I definitely feel an improvement in my leg muscle development as well as stamina. It's handy that it can be folded away too which saves space. Don't like the colour much but hey ho, the machine's fine.

Tim

Great buy - simple to assemble - loads of functions - Great service as usual by sweatband!

Sally

Only ever used cross trainers at the gym so I was surprised at what this buys you for the money. doesn't feel like a gym machine but it works, is quiet and is very resonsably priced. Good for the money. Lots of functions and very easy to use. Highly recommended for beginners.

Dan

Bought this to help with my early morning cardio before work. It's a lot more convenient than going to the gym! Very simple and easy to use so no complaints from me.

josh

Great little cross train perfect for home use. I use it 3/4 times a week to improve my fitness levels as they've gone down in my old age! Very easy to set up was actually quite surprised as I thought it would be beyond me and very complicated. Overall I'm pleased with my purchase.

Simon

After deciding running is not doing my joints any good I decided to buy an elliptical trainer for home use. After numerous hours trawling the web I decided purchase the Proform 700 from Sweatband. I have never bought anything from them before but was pleased with the communication and delivery. It took about 2 hours to assemble, including carrying all the pieces up 2 flights of stairs first. I found the assembly quite straightforward but used my own spanners and screwdriver, and the included hex wrench. The machine seems quite sturdy but had to re-tighten a couple of bolts with use, as mentioned in other reviews. Mainly the centre bolt on the down tube which needed tightening several times but now seems to have settled down. I have checked a few times since but everything is still tight. Overall very pleased with the Proform. There are a variety of programmes which I have been rotating for variety, and with the option of increasing the resistance should cover everything I need. The control panel took me a while to get used to as the instructions aren't too clear but getting there slowly. Still not sure how to work the recovery button works though. Overall very pleased and good value for the price.

Brian

Superb machine for the money. I have used a lot of commercial units in gyms and I think lb for lb this is just as good considering the price. It's super quiet too I keep it upstairs and I can't hear it when the wife's on it! We both use it 3/4x a week to keep our activity levels up during the winter months as we are both retired now. Easy to construct and assemble bit like flat pack furniture. So yeah, overall couldn't be happier.

Huw

Thought long and hard about which one to buy - in the end this one won owing to the folding facility and overall features. Delivery was excellent, quick and well organised. Assembly requires a modicum of diy skills and some mechanical sympathy. You can do it single handed but having help would be ideal. You will need a 14mm ring spanner!! Folding up is easy - unfolding and locking is a little fiddly, especially on a carpeted floor. Likewise it's worth taking time to adjust the feet to ensure stability in use. I'm 86kg and 6ft 2'' and find the machine really good - given that I'd only ever used gym V Trainers before. The key is to regularly tighten the fixings as they will work loose, especially as they bed in. Overall, very pleased so far - especially with the range of exercise profiles and ability to set up for 4 different users. Reccomended.

Chrisopher

I purchased this machine a few weeks ago and I'm very pleased with it so far. Assembly was quite hard, but the build quality is good. The proform 700 console offers a good range of built-in workouts and seems to be good for both fat burning sessions and interval training. I like the fact that it operates with nearly no noise.

Elizabeth

I replaced my old treadmill with the Proform 700 and it's certainly more compact in comparison! This elliptical seems to have all the 'must haves' I need for home exercise and I'm enjoying using it. Typically, I use the Hill pre-set program for doing some toning work and am finding it more effective than the running sessions I previously did. Great product for home fitness!

Nigel

Overall, I'm very impressed with this elliptical trainer: It's strudy in use and has a good resistance range and a nice selection of built-in workouts. The folding facility is clever and saves quite a bit of space when the machine isn't being used.

Andrew

The Proform 700 was quite tricky to assemble, but once completed the result is a substantial and solid feeling cross trainer. I'm 6ft tall and find using the machine comfortable to use and am particularly pleased that the moving arms are tall enough to get a proper stretch. I'm making use of the machine every other day for interval training and find the resistance range good enough to do this. With its folding mechanism it's also quite space efficient - a very good cross trainer for the price!

Michael

Well suited for weight loss and general fitness purposes! I've been using it daily for about a month and am pleased with the results I've acheived so far. It feel stable being used, works almost silently and the pre-set programmes provided by the console are quite challenging. While it took a good bit of time, I found the assembly process quite straightforward. The machine itself is pretty big, but with the folding feature it doesn't take much space when I'm not using it. Great value!

Emily

I chose this cross trainer after reading all the other reviews and also because of its folding mechanism. I’ve never used cross trainers before and I was pretty surprised how effective the Proform 700 is for working for my bum and arms. I’m 5’6’’ tall and find exercising on the Proform 700 comfortable and despite using it daily, I don't feel any in my knees in the same way as I used to get from running and cycling previously. Also, the console is pretty good with its pre-set workouts. I'd higly recommend this machine to anyone wishing to combine fat burning and strengthening workouts.

Julia

I ordered this elliptical to do some fat burning workouts at home. Being limited in space, I really like its folding design and make regular use of this mechanism. I’ve been using the ProForm 700 every day and find it both quiet and smooth to use. It also features nice pre-programmed workouts that seem to provide decent fat-burning or toning sessions. It is a nice bit of kit and excellent value for money.

Carole

I’ve ordered the Proform 700 after reading user reviews of the product and am happy that I've made a good choice. When it comes to assembly, it took me 2 hours to build it up but the whole process is clearly explained in the manual. The 700 cross trainer gives us a good workout and offers a good variety on the console. I'd certainly recommend to anyone interested in buying a cross trainer.

Champa

I carried out a lot of research before selecting the Proform 700 as my requirements list was quite long (stride length, console functions etc). I'm finding the The 700 elliptical to be very smooth and the resistance levels on offer go high enough to really challenge me. I make use of the pre-set programmes and these are helping me to get good cadio workouts.It's great value for money and I'm really happy with the quality of this x-trainer.

Alice

The Proform 700 is one of the nicest elliptical trainers for home use I've across. It operates smoothly with a nice, long stride and the console enables easy resistance changes and is simple to use. The 700 is well built and with its folding feature doesn’t require much space, when not in use. I’m very happy with this machine!
