ProForm has extensive experience within the cardiovascular equipment sector of the fitness equipment industry and originally specialized in exclusively manufacturing only treadmills. However, over the years, ProForm has expanded their fitness equipment operating model to include elliptical machines and exercise bikes.

Pro Form is one of the ICON Health & Fitness companies in partnership with fellow manufacturers to provide quality products at affordable prices. Companies under the ICON Health and Fitness umbrella include Nordic Track, Weider, Healthrider and Weslo. Since becoming part of the ICON Health and Fitness Corporation, ProForm has been able to achieve a manufacturing scale that allows them to provide quality fitness equipment products at an affordable price.
