Of course, a treadmill's most important function is keeping you fit, and the QuickStart 6.0 excels in this capacity as well. The workouts start with an oversized LCD display that tracks your speed, time, distance, incline, pulse, and calories, letting you monitor your progress throughout your workout. You can also make the most out of your routine 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 six weight-loss workouts and six performance workouts. The weight-loss workouts are intended to help you burn maximum calories, with automatic speed and incline adjustments keeping you active. The performance workouts, meanwhile, were designed by a certified personal trainer to help you push your limits, so you can run faster, jump higher, and get stronger. As an alternative, you can use the Quick Speed and Quick Incline controls to instantly adjust the speed from 1 to 10 miles per hour and the incline from 0 to 5 percent.
Other features include a smooth 17-by-50-inch running belt and a 250-pound capacity. The treadmill carries a 15-year warranty on the motor and a one-year 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.
