The ProForm Endurance 520 E Elliptical is an entry-level elliptical in terms of power and durability, but it’s superior to other affordable ellipticals in terms of workout variety. This is one of the best options for a low fitness budget. The front-drive ProForm Endurance 520 E is designed to help beginners stay motivated and reach goals efficiently with help from pro guidance.
The 520 E has a 19” elliptical path. This stride length is a good fit for most adults, although not for those who are unusually tall. For stride variation that helps shape your muscles, the machine also has several manual incline options. The max incline setting is 20 degrees.
The 520 E arrives with 18 workout programs designed by a certified personal trainer. By controlling the duration and resistance of each exercise segment, these programs take the time and guesswork out of planning smart workouts.
The default display for this elliptical is a 5” LCD, but the console can hold your tablet computer at eye height for use with other apps. For unlimited training variety, the 520 E is compatible with iFit Coach, a subscription service that allows unlimited workout downloads among other advantages.
