While looking for a new cardio machine for home, we found the Proform 850 elliptical with GameFit technology. Video games contained within the machine appealed to our competitive nature, so we decided to give it a shot. We found we liked the distraction of playing video games, while also having the option of tailoring a workout specific for the day.
Normally, you don’t think of exercising and playing video games at the same time, but the Proform 850 elliptical with GameFit technology really pares it together well. Suddenly, your workout is a ton of fun! And while you don’t have to play Fat Blocker or Calorie Destroyer, the interesting thing is the games get easier the harder you workout. To achieve the number of minutes or hours you want to workout, these distractions really help keep the motivation up.
And if you need a break from playing video games, then plug your iPod into the provided music port – the machine has a built in sound system to listen to your music.
This elliptical machine also has something for those already in the habit of working out every day. With 12 different workout options, you have the options to focus on different sections of your body, from upper body to thighs. It makes it really easy to vary your routine to achieve specific results. This is perfect if you need to lose weight and burn countless calories.
If you’re not looking for a competitive environment, the Proform 850 elliptical with GameFit technology could be seen as just another elliptical machine. On the other hand, if you want to experience the unique option of working out while playing video games, then this is the machine for you.
