Both models are highly user-friendly, so choosing between the two can be a challenge. Narrowing your focus down to a few key differences will help you find the best fit. While there are many similarities between these two machines, the Sole F80 offers a better warranty, a stronger drive system, and a larger LCD display. The Pro 2000 on the other hand, offers a decline feature and more program variety. The bottom line is that if you are looking for more ways to change up your workout (decline, programs, iFit compatibility), the Pro 2000 might be your best bet. However, if you are looking for a more compact in-home model that focuses on comfort, the Sole F80 is a strong choice.
