The New Pro 16.9 Elliptical is the top model in the Pro series of front drive elliptical trainers from Pro-Form. Currently you can save $1,000 off the manufacturers list price as this elliptical is currently going for $1,499.00. It also ships assembled which means you can be up and running in minutes. Everything is bigger and better on the Pro 16.9. With a commercial-gauge solid steel frame, extra heavy flywheel, and long stride this elliptical comes with a lifetime frame warranty and has a person weight capacity of up to 375 lbs.

Features

Ellipticals offer full body training thanks to a combination of working both your lower and upper body. The Pro 16.9 Elliptical has a smooth 32 lb flywheel with silent magnetic resistance that gives the fitness machine 26 resistance levels. With a 20" stride this elliptical also can incline your movement up to 20 degrees which modifies your workout significantly allowing you to target different muscle groups.

The console on the Pro 16.9 elliptical is packed full of features. On top you have the integrated tablet holder designed for any size tablet. Below that you have a large 10" color touchscreen which you can control the elliptical and workout programs from, along with watching TV and surfing the internet through WIFI. On either side of the screen you will find buttons to change your incline (ramp) and resistance to any setting with the touch of just one button. Below the screen you will find some touchscreen controls (home, back, etc.), the fan controls, volume controls, and workout categories. There are 35 workout programs divided into 3 categories: Calorie, Intensity, and Performance. This elliptical is also iFit enabled allowing you to download and create your own programs online. Below the screen and controls on the console is the fan which is nicely position to blow air on your upper body. On either side of the fan are the integrated speakers designed to be used by the display or by your iPod/mp3 player. Below the console and between the upper arms of the elliptical is a water bottle holder that is easy to access.

The Pro-Form Pro 16.9 Elliptical feature set includes:

  • 32 lb Flywheel
  • 20" Adjustable Stride
  • 26 Resistance Levels
  • 10" Color Touchscreen
  • Incline of up to 20 Degrees
  • 35 Workout Programs
  • USB Charging Port and Music Port with Speakers
  • iFit Enabled
  • Dual Grip Heart Rate Monitor and Wireless Chest Strap
  • Integrated Transport Wheels
  • Workout Fan
  • Integrated Tablet Holder and Water Bottle Holder

The footprint for the Pro 16.9 measures 80.3" long by 25.7" wide, and 64.4" high. The middle handle bars include built in EKG heart rate monitors and the Pro 16.9 can also monitor your heart rate continuously via Bluetooth with the included wireless chest strap. The pedals on the elliptical are also adjustable giving stability for people of different heights. The front of the elliptical includes 2 transport wheels allowing you to move the elliptical if need. Large oversize adjustable levellers keep your elliptical stable even on an uneven floor.

How Does it Work

To start a workout step onto the elliptical trainer pedals and then to turn on the Pro 16.9 console just touch the screen or press any button. The menu will then appear on the screen after the console boots up. To start in manual mode either hit start or just start pedaling. You then can change your resistant levels and the level of the ramp by either hitting the increase and decrease buttons or the numbered quick buttons.

To start a built in workout program you press the "Runner" button on the bottom of the touchscreen and the list of workout categories will appear. Select the category you want (for a shortcut press one of the 3 category quick buttons on the console) and a list of related workout programs will appear (35 in all) along with program information like duration and calorie burn expected. Once you find the workout you want you can then select it and your workout will start.

Once a workout starts you will see that the duration of the workout is split up into segments. Each segment is an equal piece of time and represents a certain resistance, ramp incline, and target speed (cadence). The current segment you are on during your workout will flash. If you don't stay within your target speed range for the particular workout segment you are on, the Target Zone meter will light up indicating to you either to increase or decrease your speed. Resistance and incline can be manually overridden by using the available controls and will stay the same until you touch the "Follow Workout" button.

To use iFit on your ProForm elliptical you must have already created an account on iFit.com and created your user profile. You will also need to add one or more workouts to your schedule. At this point you can then login to iFit on your Pro 16.9 Elliptical using the same username and password. From there you can then download the workout and loose weight programs you want.

 I purchased this elliptical for the technology   It emailed my workouts for about two weeks then stopped.    I loved the idea of the screen to catch up on news and social media,  but the channels I would like to watch do not work. I basically paid $1500 for and elliptical that I use for basic functions. 
Pros
Smooth
Cons
Does not email workouts as described. Many of the channels to watch like Fox News don’t work. I paid for extras that are useless
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

The frame on this elliptical is solid and handles my 250 lbs without any problems. I have already lost 15 lbs so lets hope for continued weight loss!!!

With the android touchscreen built into this elliptical it makes it extremely easy to use. All you need to do is select your workout and your off. I also like the ability to surf the web. I work out in the morning so I can catch up on all the news before I head into work.

I also like the extra long warranty that the 16.9 Elliptical comes with. It has a lifetime frame and 6 years on parts. Other similarly priced ellipticals from other companies that I looked into only offered 3 year parts warranties.


Pros
Solid construction. Touchscreen is the way to go.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I ordered the Pro 16.9 from the Proform website. It arrived in just over a week. It was on sale but still a higher price than I wanted to pay. What won me over was the extra large size screen that I can surf the web on and watch my shows. The worse thing that can happen when working out is being bored. That is not very strong motivation. My workout room/office has no TV so a screen is important to me and has helped to pass the time while exercising. I do 30 minutes every morning before I shower and go to work.

The other thing that is important to me is that it comes shipped almost completely assembled. I am not a handy guy and even the simplest Ikea furniture usually leaves me frustrated. The shippers were nice enough to bring it into my house and once I got the packaging off I had it setup and plugged in, in under 10 minutes. No worries about putting it together wrong or having any missing pieces. The price of this elliptical is worth just having it come assembled.

Working out on the elliptical is great. After 4 months of use it still is as smooth and quiet as ever. I don't have the iFit subscription but it has plenty of workouts built into it and I have found a few programs I really like. The incline and resistance work well and at the highest settings is very difficult (which I don't really use). I have lost a lot of weight and I am glad I ended up purchasing this machine.
Pros
Great workout. Very well built.
Cons
Ellipticals are not cheap.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
