ProForm has been in business since the 1980s and is owned by ICON Health & Fitness which is based in Utah and globally has more than 4,000 employees. ProForm is a well recognized brand (use to be called Pro-Form Fitness Products) for premium treadmills, exercise bikes, and ellipticals. ProForm has partnered with famous sporting events like The Boston Marathon and Le Tour De France and actually manufactures official treadmills and exercise bikes which are a recommended option for training for these prestigious events.
Most of Pro-Form's treadmills, ellipticals and exercise bikes either support iFit or is iFit compatible. What is iFit? It is a smart fitness technology that gives you access to almost an infinite amount of training workouts. It adds custom built workouts with automatic tracking and routes which use Google Maps. Custom workouts can be downloaded by your favourite celebrity trainer and you can create your own routes by using Google Maps. When you do this your incline / decline and/or resistance of the fitness machine will automatically adjust based on the actual terrain from Google Maps. Plus you can enjoy street view images right on your machine console (if supported) and your tablet or phone. With iFit enabled machines all of your fitness information is automatically tracked on your iFit profile allowing you to see the results and compete with your friends. For the full featured iFit experience a subscription costs $99 per year.
Some fitness machines may not support iFit out of the box and may require an additional module that can be purchased separately.
