True story. About seven years ago we got a call from one of the executives from Icon Fitness, which owns ProForm. They asked why we were trashing their products in our ProForm Elliptical Reviews. We said, in less than diplomatic terms, “Your quality control and customer service sucks.” They responded by saying they were a company in transition, much like the Detroit automakers, and we should come out to Logan, UT to see the changes that were being put into place.
Since that visit, the company has made radical improvements to both their quality control and their customer service. We still get an occasional complaint, but considering their huge volume of sales, the overall percentage of service issues is minor.
Icon Fitness has become a company that is completely focused on offering the best value in their price range. In fact, they are fanatic about it. The quality of their machines and their leading edge technology make the models some of the best values in their price range!
