ProForm 780 CrossWalk

Editor's Rating: 6.8/10
Update: This model has been discontinued. To find a suitable replacement, check out our treadmill finder here.

The ProForm Power 780 CS, or Crosswalk, is a mid-priced treadmill manufactured by ICON Health and Fitness.

The CrossWalk treadmill series provides the benefits of a traditional treadmill while also helping users tone their upper arms.

What We Like

  • Compact design: Like other ProForm home treadmills, the 780 has a patented SpaceSaver design: the deck folds up for storage.
  • Motor: This model’s quiet Mach Z 3.0 HP motor brings industrial-level power to a home workout machine.
  • Track cushioning: Patented ProSoft cushioning reduces joint stress by up to 22% over road training.
  • Workout options: By using the upper-arm exercising bars, a user can burn up to 50% more calories than when exercising their lower body alone. Three interactive personal training workouts and twelve standard workouts are built into the console.
  • Fan: A fan built into the console helps extend an exerciser’s endurance.

What We Don’t Like

  • Track length: The ProForm 780’s track is just 55” long, which is too short for some users.
  • Warranty: While ProForm provides a lifetime warranty on the motor and frame, the brand’s 90-day warranty on other parts is disappointing.

 

Our Verdict

This machine is equipped with a quiet commercial-grade motor and a well-cushioned track. A variety of workout programs is included, but the ProForm’s entertainment options fall short of what is available on many comparably-priced home treadmills today. The limited warranty on parts is also a cause for concern.

Since the ProForm 570 CrossWalk is essentially the same machine, it may be a better buy for users who want to combine upper-arm training with treadmill use. Compare specs and sale prices carefully when it’s time to make your purchase. Sometimes though, the ProForm 780 actually sells for less than the 570.
