ProForm 415 Crosswalk Review

Editor's Rating: 4.5 /10

The 415 Crosswalk Treadmill is a very basic and inexpensive machine manufactured by ProForm and typically sold by retailers like Sears. This particular model can be found for just under $400. Quite a deal, but you’ll get what you pay for.

The 415 Crosswalk uses a patented SpaceSaver design that allows users to fold the machine vertically in a single step. In addition to the folding frame, this model is also quite compact with a running area that is 18″ wide and 50″ long (the average is typically 20″ wide and 60″ long). The total weight is just 170 pounds. Since this is a lightweight model, the rollers are predictably small at just 1.9″.

Unlike traditional treadmills, this model features the CrossWalk arms design that allows users to work the upper body while walking. A treadmill offering a total body workout is certainly rare in this price range.

The motor is a 2.0 CHP Mach Z that can withstand user weights of up to 300 pounds. There is also a protective cushioning deck designed with ProShox Cushioning support. If you want to workout on an incline, this model provides one of up to 10%. The speed capabilities of this model top out at 10mph. To make speed or incline changes, there are quick keys on the console in addition to the usual up/down arrows.

To display workout data like time, distance, and calories burned, there is a 5″ x 7″ LCD screen. The console area is pretty bare, featuring only the basics like cup holders and an MP3 compatible sound system (sadly no cooling fan though). There are 16 built-in workout programs to choose from and a built-in dual-grip EKG heart rate monitor to track your ticker.

The warranty package includes 5 years coverage on the frame and motor as well as 90 days on parts and labor.

What We Like:

  • CrossWalk Arms Design: Having the ability to work the upper and lower body at the same time will expand your calorie burning potential. The CrossWalk arms also bring more variety to workouts.
  • Folding Design: This model uses the patented Space Saver Design for easy vertical folding in one easy step. This is important for users with limited space.
  • Price: Few other treadmills can be found at this price point. This model is available at retailers like Sears for as low as $391. However, you will sacrifice features and quality parts for this price.
  • Program Variety: 16 built-in workout programs isn’t bad for a model well under $500. Users can choose from a number options to meet personal fitness goals.

ProForm 415 Crosswalk Treadmill - Key Specs:

Star Rating:2.25-stars
Running Area:50" x 18"
Top Speed:n/a
Weight Capacity: LBS
Built-In Programs:Yes
What We Don’t Like:

  • Display Screen: This incredibly small display screen is quite narrow and the readouts are fairly small. It’s undeniably difficult to read in the middle of a workout.
  • Warranty: This is one of the worst warranty packages that we have ever seen and that’s a huge red flag.
  • Assembly: Many people have reported problems when trying to assemble machine, mainly due to being stuck with an off-center running belt or how time consuming the process is in general.

Our Verdict:

The ProForm 415 Crosswalk Treadmill is a cheap and low grade treadmill that isn’t even worth the $371 asking price. Admittedly, that price is quite attractive (especially considering the CrossWalk arms design), but take a moment before purchasing this treadmill to remember that if a deal sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Fortunately, ProForm offers many excellent treadmills. You may need to spend a few hundred dollars more, but  it’s worth it. Consider the ProForm Pro 2000, an award-winning treadmill that is one of our “Best Buys”.
