The ProForm 210 CSX comes with a good range of features considering its low price. It features 12 built-in workout programs, 12 digital resistance levels, an EKG pulse handlebar, and even a workout fan and iPod-compatible music port, making it very good value for money.
The ProFrom 210’s flywheel isn’t particularly heavy but due to featuring an inertia-enhanced design, the pedaling motion still manages to feel smooth and deliver a natural striding experience.
The ProForm 210 CSX comes with a good variety of workout programs, allowing you to work out in line with your fitness goals. There are fat burning, weight loss, time trial, calorie goal, interval, custom, interactive heart rate, and manual programs to choose from.
Just like the Proform 215 CSX, there are 12 digital resistance levels to choose from and changing the level of resistance is a simple, hassle free process thanks to the Silent Magnetic Resistance control. While level 1 takes things nice and easy, level 12 is really quite challenging and even the fittest of individuals will struggle. Therefore, whereas some exercise bikes come with 20 levels of resistance, albeit not those that are priced under $300-400, 12 levels is more than enough.
As the 210 CSX is a recumbent bike it is quite comfortable to use. The seat is oversized, well-padded, and adjustable, while the frame is designed for easy step-on and step-off. There is also a built-in CoolAire workout fan with two speed settings, but as is so often the case with fans on exercise equipment, it is pretty much just a novelty item, as well as a compatible music port for an iPod so you can work out to music.
The ProForm 210 CSX computer monitor makes it easy to track your workout progress, as it displays speed, distance, time, resistance, calories burned and pulse. Your pulse is recorded to a relatively high degree of accuracy via the dual grip EKG heart rate monitor, which works when you place your hands on the sensors in the handlebars.
As the feedback is displayed in black writing on a light blue-tinted background it is easy to read. There is also a workout matrix that offers a graphical representation of your workout.
Transport wheels can be found on the bottom of the bike to make sure that you can move the 88-pound 210 CSX easily.
The 210 CSX is backed by a 90-day parts and labor warranty.

PROFORM 210 CSX USER REVIEWS
Users have had plenty of positive things to say about the 210 CSX. According to users, the 210 CSX is easy to assemble, although it is probably best if there is another person to help you out. The bike is quiet when in operation, and the console is easy to read. The variety of pre-programmed workouts have also been praised, as has the quality of the speakers
Users seem to be disappointed to find that a power supply must be purchased separately and have said that the fan is ineffective. One user also found it difficult to adjust the seat at first.
As mentioned by users, the fan is practically useless, as it isn’t powerful enough to be effective. And while the 210 CSX works on batteries, it would’ve been nice if ProForm shipped a power supply with the product. Instead you must purchase one separately for around $10-15. One more thing you should keep in mind is that the specifications for the 210 CSX on many websites are wrong. This bike is not compatible with iFit.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW?
The only thing to add is that despite not coming with a power supply, the ProForm 210 CSX is certainly worth a look at, especially when you consider just how much you’re getting for the price.
