The Pro-Form Hybrid Trainer XT gives you two quality cardio workouts for a price of a single unit.
Switching between them is easy. Two simple adjustments (simply move the pedals and the console) and this unit swaps between an elliptical trainer and a recumbent bike. The Hybrid Trainer XT is 180cm in length, 64cm in width and comes at a height of 154cm. The total weight of the unit is 66kg when packaged, and 58kg when fully assembled.
Users up to a weight of 150kg can enjoy this equipment comfortably, which is anyone up to a weight of 23 and a half stone. Front mounted transport wheels make moving the trainer easy, although users should be aware that this machine doesn’t fold (ensure you have enough space so that the equipment doesn’t get in the way when you’re not using it).
As with all ProForm equipment the build quality and finish are excellent.
The ProForm Hybrid XT is iFit Bluetooth smart enabled. This allows you access to the full iFit fitness programme and they also throw in a year’s free membership too.
iFit will allow you to ‘virtually’ enjoy workouts in any part of the globe, visiting places such as Paris, Rome, Rio and more, all powered by Google maps. These specially designed workouts are linked to your machine, with resistance levels automatically changing as you move up or down hills. Users get to customise their workouts using iFit, and an ever-growing library of routes ensures that no two workouts need be the same. Connected tracking allows users to check their progress and update their training schedules.
As well as the iFit membership, the equipment comes ready loaded with 16 on-board workouts. These comprise of eight elliptical workouts and eight workouts on the recumbent bike.
Enjoy the workouts on the large LCD console display – or use your own tablet / iPad for the full iFit training experience.
When using the unit for cycling, this machine is built for comfort. The seat has added cushioning and the easily adjustable vertical and horizontal set up ensures that it’s an enjoyable ride for all. The bike has a lumbar-support design, which is easy on the back and stops any aching.
The elliptical aspect of the Hybrid XT allows for long 15” strides. Elliptical training is easier on the joints due to the feet being in constant contact with the machine, and a consistent path as you stride to guard against any mis-stepping.
This trainer features a 7kg flywheel and 16 different resistance levels which are easily adjustable at the touch of a button.
Reviews for this equipment, just like most of the rest of the ProForm range are hugely positive, with top marks awarded for both quality and value for money. The sturdiness of the equipment has come in for particular praise, with many reviewers stressing the solidity of the machine. The assembly time differs in opinion, with one user saying the equipment was ready to go in just over an hour, while another stated that the assembly took more time.
These reviews follow a similar path to much of the ProForm cardio machines, which, as a company, has a great reputation for both the quality and sturdiness of the equipment. The iFit aspect of the equipment is super-popular, with reviewers stating that they find the range of workouts and the interactivity with the equipment an ideal mix.
If you’re looking for home gym equipment with a versatility, the ProForm Hybrid Trainer XT is an ideal pick. In the mid-price range, this unit comes with a year’s subscription to iFit. You will enjoy trainer-led workouts or traverse the planet and enjoy some of the nicest views. Being both an elliptical trainer and a recumbent bike, dual workouts can be enjoyed. Switching between one and the other couldn’t be easier. This machine is solid yet smooth.
For the best of both worlds – the Hybrid Trainer XT is an ideal choice.
