If you’re tight on budget, but still want to stay fit in the comforts of your home, then proform endurance 520e should be taken into consideration. It’s a standard elliptical machine, minus the extra frills and features that aren’t really necessary at all. Furthermore, those who are familiar with the ProForm line of ellipticals, they’d agree that these machines will last for a long time, but it still has a one-year warranty in case that it malfunctions.

The manual adjustable of this machine can be adjusted from 5-20 degrees, making it ideal, especially for those who are just new in the elliptical fitness training. Thus, a lot of reviews consider the proform 520 e as a straightforward and cost effective machine. Aside from that, it’s also equipped with a 20” stride length, which is the standard stride of most individuals. This is the advantage that the
proform endurance 520e elliptical has as compared to other machines.

Additionally, it also has a 15 pound flywheel that’s neither heavy nor light. Without a doubt, you’re going to experience quality workout with this excellent elliptical machine. As for the foot pedals, they can be adjusted depending on your preference.

What We Don’t Like:

Here are some of the few downsides of Proform 520:
> The stingy one-year warranty for parts and labor.
> The incline adjustments of endurance 520 e are manual and not automatic. Which only implies that there’s a possibility of stopping in the middle of your workout just to adjust the equipment.
> The weight of the flywheel. Even though proform 520 e elliptical doesn’t make the bar ride, it wouldn’t give you the smooth ride other elliptical equipments has.

Final Verdict

We’d all agree that the ProForm is one of the brands that produce reliable fitness equipments that you can trust, and the ProForm Endurance 520 E Elliptical is not an exception for that. However, the real issue comes with the fact that there are a lot of machines with advanced features now. If you’re willing to spare a few hundred dollars more, we believe that the 720 E will be better.

However, if you’re on a tight budget, then this machine will be ideal for you. As for the 20” stride, it’s perfect no matter how big or how small the user is. Overall, it doesn’t matter what your fitness goals are, the proform 520 elliptical will make that happen.
