What to Look for in a ProForm Treadmill
The ProForm Pro 2000 comes with a one-year Family Membership to iFit, delivering high-definition, trainer-led workout videos from around the world as well as live trainers who can physically guide your machine from remote. Compatible with the iFit Coach app and Google Maps, you can use the machine to virtually run across various terrains from around the globe, all enhanced by the HD display. There are more than enough options to challenge any fitness level while keeping workout sessions fresh and exciting.
The treadmill’s incline works in sync with the built-in workouts and apps, automatically shifting to complement the resistance levels in the workout programs or the elevation of the virtual iFit terrains. The incline/decline feels very real, especially useful for those who also run outdoors or are training for an outdoor race.
The roomy 60 x 20-inch track adds to the pleasure of your workout, feeling far less cramped than the standard 55-inch residential treadmill. The ReBound Pro Cushioning built into the tracks limits the impact on knees and joints, which is important for the ongoing health of regular and serious runners.
The 3.25 CHP Mach Z motor makes this treadmill worthwhile for walkers, joggers, and runners alike. You can run from 0-12 MPH on the machine. Aligning speed with the resistance levels can make your workouts challenging and allow you to build and tone muscles while burning more calories.
The ProForm Pro 2000 can support weights of up to 300 pounds.
ProForm offers a decent 10-year guarantee on the frame, two years for parts, and one year for labor.
