ProForm HIIT Trainer Review
HIIT Trainer Review Score 9.8
HIIT TRAINER OVERVIEW
The ProForm HIIT Trainer combines elliptical and stepper motions to deliver an effective total body workout without excessive joint stress or strain as you burn significant calories using HIIT. HIIT (high intensity interval training) is a technique adopted by top athletes to get real results by keeping your heart rate up and building strength throughout your workout session.
The idea behind HIIT training is simply to give maximum effort for a set period of time followed by a short recovery break — then repeat. That's in part what makes the Proform Cardio HIIT Trainer work so well.
You can Burn 4 times the calories in the same time as on a treadmill. This equipment delivers a much higher rate of calorie burn compared with a standard treadmill just by adding upper body movement enabling you to activate your calves, hamstrings, quads, glutes, biceps and triceps —all in a single movement.
The multi-grip handlebars allow you to workout your upper body, core and back muscles along with your lower body with a boxing motion — making this HIIT Cardio machine such an effective calorie burner as it combines cardio and muscle strengthening.
