    Eliptical Pro. I was waiting for my elliptical for a month. I received it and put it all together and one of the pedals was missing. I called the customer service that the part was missing, I received it within a week. There are 2 parts for the pedal and I received only one, I called them again, explaining the whole situation and they send me second part of that pedal, but the screws were missing, I had to call again... The time my elliptical was ready to use my trial time was over and I could not return it anymore. I don't like it and I am stuck with it now. Customer service told me that it is my fault not calling them to extend the trial time. Don't buy it. I'm really unhappy.

    Don't purchase any elliptical from Pro-Form. Their customer service department absolutely stinks. They don't back their products. They shipped a damaged elliptical to me and wanted $450 to return the damaged elliptical plus 10% of the purchase price. I've had the elliptical for 3 months and it, of course, is worthless. Will never purchase anything from them again in my lifetime.

      Worst customer service junk unit. I bought a HIIT fit stair climber. I have it 12 weeks. It's been broken for 7 weeks. Waiting for service. Do not buy. It's junk and the customer service is nonexistent. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY.

      Absolutely horrible service! I ordered a elliptical directly from the company. They delivered and assembled it in the room I chose. However, they did not assemble it properly and pieces were missing. I did not realize this until my sister got on it and it fell apart. ProForm did not want to send someone out to fix and they said the warranty did not cover assembly problems. It took several angry calls over the course of a month, to get someone to finally come out and fix it properly. This is when I was told that it was missing parts and assembled incorrectly. It’s now fixed but I will NEVER buy a ProForm product again.

      Updated on 08/09/2019: A day or two after the technician fixed the problem with the screen not working, it stopped working again. I have not called it in or used the machine because I am tired of calling about this brand new piece of equipment that continuously is problematic. I will get to it when I have the time because it is time consuming to report equipment problems. It's been about 4 months since the second breakdown that I have not been using the equipment.

      Original Review: I received my HIIT Trainer the end of March and by April 8, I had to order a new screen. Before ordering the new screen, I had multiple problems with the screen not working properly. I have to wait a month for the screen although I was initially informed it would be two weeks. The 1-800 number ALWAYS have a high call volume wait, which is a red flag. I am sorry to say that the machine is crappy and it is down more than available for proper use. This places a glitch in my exercise routine. I should have purchased from BowFlex.

      Okay so I bought the ProForm Cardio HIIT trainer from Costco. After assembling it I find out you need to activate it online and add credit card information, I just couldn’t believe that after paying for a $800 product I still had to purchase an additional membership. I was quite honest going to return it if this was the case. After spending about 40 min reading reviews and looking for answers online I found a post that said to avoid adding your credit card information simply hold Bluetooth button 20 sec! And yes it works. My elliptical is no longer being held hostage. Hopefully it works well.

      Bought an Elliptical in November of 2017. One day, the screen stopped loading up. Been trying to get a hold of them for 7 days. Their live chat is just a bot that tells you to call their 800 number but you just stay on hold the entire time. DO NOT GO WITH THIS COMPANY. My experience with them was great because I liked the product... Bought their bike as well. Problem is that if something goes wrong...you basically have a giant paperweight. I have enclosed an email which I have sent numerous times with only an automated response to call an 800 number which nobody answers.

      I have tried emailing you through the contact form and spent about an hour no on hold trying to get through customer service. My Pro-Form Pro 16.9 Model number PFEL31315.1 has an issue with its screen. It will not load up. I have also bought the extended service plan and would like to have someone come out and service it as the left handle makes a lot of noise when in use. PLEASE HAVE SOMEONE CALL ME AT **. I was going to buy another machine from you as well but there is no way I can with this type of customer service.

      Bad quality product. The control module, main screen did not work. Just kept flashing “hello”. Very little instructions in manual or on their website for troubleshooting or help. You can’t even talk to a rep unless you register, then after that you have to wait an extremely long time to get through. Waited 50 mins on hold on the phone then finally got through. I was told that they all flash hello so that you have to call customer service so they can try to sell you a subscription to “ifit” .

      When I said I didn’t want it she said she was authorized to walk me through a fix to allow me to use the machine. It never said anything about having to sign up for “ifit” when I bought it. Very misleading and very frustrating to waste hours trying to fix it. They waste almost an hour on the phone trying to resolve it. I would never purchase from this company. Lost hours of time to assemble then more time trying to fix and get it addressed. They didn’t apologize for the inconvenience either.

      I wish I would have read the reviews before I purchase from this company. My unit came in missing a piece. It was practically a defective unit. I emailed about the problem and someone by the name Crystal didn't respond until five (5) days later. I gave the information requested and waited for another few days. I didn't get a response until I sent a following up email asking what was the status. She then replied stating she wasn't able to pull the unit up with the info provided. I then sent her a picture of the actual box and still... waiting on a response. I end up calling the customer service and was on hold for A LONG TIME. Once connected, Paige wasn't able to answer a simple question. She stated that the part was ordered and she'll send over the order number. Still waiting for that. Fingers crossed. All this in a two (2) weeks' time. Some reviews I read are stating that they waited MONTHS... So I'm guessing I'm ** at this point.

      I had purchased this machine around 2012, from a local store, brought it home and followed the instructions to put it together. I didn't experience troubles - outside of the plastic that wraps each joint - never was able to make it work without hearing 'scratching', removed to avoid the noise... This had been used mainly for a 110# woman who was easy on the machine. After assembly and the removal of the plastic joint wraps, it seemed fine, but that's where it ended! While they are cheap, this is something that you truly do "get what you pay for". Within a few months It started making knocking noises - couldn't ID exactly where it was coming from.

      Then, about a year into it, the foot pad BROKE Off, and then the other shortly after! OK, so those items were fixable at a reasonable price - however, were extremely hard to do - nearly impossible. The latest, cracked vertical handle/extension bars that connect with the horizontal foot pad joint - on BOTH sides! I would love to attach pictures.

      Being an engineer, I am amazed how this company can remain profitable - but then again, their inability to not take the necessary steps and stand behind their products, is one way to continue to take our (consumers) money and rely on their cheap prices (and products) to make it happen. The saddest part of all of this, due to the CHEAPNESS upfront cost, I actually fell into that, and bought a new ProForm - I wish I had options at this low price point, or that I could have afforded a better made machine. The woman using the machine has MS and needs to continue a cardio workout and this fits the bill...
