Of course, a treadmill's most important function is keeping you fit, and the 490 C excels in this capacity as well. The workouts start with a ClearView backlit display. Perfectly situated, the ClearView's wide viewing angle is easy to read no matter how tall or short you are, so you can always keep track of your workout progress. You can also make the most out of every workout by using the built-in handlebars, which include dual-grip EKG heart rate monitor sensors. Finally, the treadmill comes loaded with a variety of preset workout programs, including eight personal trainer workouts and four weight-loss workouts. The personal trainer workouts take the guesswork out of your routine by automatically adjusting the speed and incline of the treadmill for increased intensity. Simply choose between aerobic, weight-loss, or performance categories and you'll be on your way to success.
As a bonus, the 490 C includes a music port designed for iPod compatibility. The music port is ideal for runners who need a little extra motivation when they work out. Other features include a Power Incline of 0 to 10 percent; a 20-by-55-inch tread belt; a precision Quick Speed control that varies between 0 and 10 miles per hour; and a 300-pound weight capacity. The 490 C treadmill carries a 25-year warranty on the motor and a 90-day warranty on parts and labor.
When most people hear the name ProForm, they automatically think of treadmills. That's because in its early days ProForm revolutionized the treadmill industry with its now-world-famous SpaceSaver foldaway design. ProForm continues its tradition of quality and innovation today, with cutting-edge advances in cushioning, electronics, and reliability. Fortunately, ProForm wasn't satisfied with treadmills, unveiling a complete line of exercise bikes, elliptical machines, weight benches, and more--all geared to providing the most effective workout available.
