ProForm TDF Pro Review
Overall Score 9.9
TDF PRO BIKE OVERVIEW
Named after its namesake, the Tour de France, the TDF PRO by ProForm is a definite buy for those looking to add the experience of real road races and studio class training to their home workout schedule. The 10” HD Screen on top of a performance driven Bike is great – it swivels 180° and tilts up and down, which we really enjoyed! – an especially handy feature for cross-training components of a class where you can be required to get off the bike. But that's up to you and driven by the classes you select. Conveniently work out at home on your own schedule and avoid having to go and stress over getting a spot at your local gym or spin studio.
Follow professional trainers as they lead you through cycling and cross-training exercises. They do keep you motivated on and off the bike. Now you can have your own space in an energetic studio right from home.
The TDF Pro kicks your ride up a notch with its unique 20% incline to 20% decline capability, a popular feature that gives a realistic, real-road feeling and helps cardio and strength building with some resistance training. You will burn way more calories by cycling at an incline by the way. The TDF Pro Bike can automatically incline or decline to match the gradient of the terrain of your iFit Coach Google maps workout or manually make your own adjustments to suit.
You can top off your training by adding upper-body strength moves.
Two 3-pound dumbbells are included with the bike. The streamed classes incorporate full body cross fit exercises so you get an overall body workout.
