The Pro-Form company is among the world's top vendors of sports machines, whether we're talking about treadmills, elliptical trainers or exercise bikes. And actually, that's exactly the type of product you'll read about as follows, namely the company's ProForm 5.0 R Recumbent Bike, which offers a very comprehensive set of features, while in the same time being available at quite an affordable price point.
The 5.0 R Recumbent Bike has been equipped with a SMR (Silent Magnetic Resistance) system, which keeps the level of the noise generated by the sports machine at a very low level. Additionally, the exercise bike has been equipped with oversized cushioned pedals, which provide both a higher level of comfort, plus improved stability and proper foot placement.
Furthermore, like most of the other similar products available on the market, the recumbent bike from ProForm also comes packed with heart-rate sensors built right in the handlebar, which allow users to quantify their efforts a lot better.
Additionally, the device comes pre-loaded with no less than 10 personal training programs, which make things a lot easier for the users, since they don't have to hire a specialized person in order to guide them through their workout sessions. Plus, it's a lot cheaper than going to the gym every day.
The device provides quite a pleasant surprise in the entertainment department, since it allows users to play a few interactive games via the console's touchscreen. Thus, they can pass the time easier with such titles as Fat Blocker, Calorie Destroyer, Black Jack and Texas Hold 'Em, which, contrary to normal games, will only get easier as the user exercises harder.
Even if it's the most expensive product of this type released by the manufacturer, the ProForm 5.0 R Recumbent Bike is still quite affordable, compared to other similar devices existing on the market, since it can be purchased for around 500 US dollars.
