Because your in-home workout experience should be a comfortable one, ProForm designed a roomy deck so you won’t feel confined as you walk, jog, and run. The 55-inch length gives your legs plenty of room to stretch out your stride. And the 20-inch width allows your upper-body extra elbowroom. To ensure our treadmills are top quality, we test each belt for one million cycles at double the user weight before release.
Our No. 1 goal is to provide a comfortable run—and a comfortable walk. Every treadmill we release is equipped with cushioning throughout the deck area. So as you walk, jog, or run, your joints will be thanking you. With less stress on your feet, ankles, knees, and hips, you’ll be able to enjoy a longer workout and faster recovery time. It’s one reason why people love their treadmills.

Experts have learned that we actually increase or decrease our pace to match the tempo of our tunes. Plus, music has also been proven to lower perceived exertion. That’s great news.

The treadmill is super heavy and the box it comes in is enormous. My husband and I spent a good while just unboxing all the parts and getting the box out of the way so we could see what we were doing. First thing to do after unboxing is make sure you have all the parts before beginning to put it together. Actually I take that back, the first thing to do is make sure you are putting it together in the room you intend to use it in. Otherwise, you may have to remove a door, or worse, take part of the treadmill apart to get it through your doorway.
After laying out all the pieces we consulted the instruction manual. The instructions are very clear and certain parts are marked with ‘left’ and ‘right’ so there is little chance of error. You definitely need two people to put this treadmill together. At certain points one person has to hold a piece in place while another person screws it together. Some of the parts are quite heavy too. The only tool we needed that was not included was a Phillips screwdriver. It only took my husband and myself about an hour to put it completely together. It would have taken less time if we had paid attention to some of the directions. We often do that. We think we know what comes next but then when we next consult the instructions, we find out that we did something wrong two steps prior. Lesson learned: follow directions step-by-step.
Besides recommending that you set it up in the room you intend to use it in and having a buddy help put it together with you, I also recommend having a surge protector to plug it into. It would be awful to pay so much for a piece of equipment only to have a power surge destroy the circuit board. Also keep in mind this treadmill takes up a lot of space when unfolded. I intended on folding it up after each use but it is so heavy that I don’t bother. One final recommendation is that you may want a mat to help save your floor and some lubricant for future use with the treadmill belt. I purchased Stamina Fold-to-Fit Folding Equipment Mat (84-Inch by 36-Inch) and it works great with this treadmill.

This treadmill gives a nice cushioned ride. It does a great job softening the blow to my knees and feet while running. There are several workouts from which to choose from including those that focus on calories burned, intensity, speed, and incline. Personally, I never use the programs. There is no way to input your height, weight, and level of activity, so I find them to be inaccurate on calories burned.
The heart rate monitor is not to be taken seriously either. I have yet to encounter a treadmill that measures heart rate accurately anyway. Your best bet is to wear a heart rate monitor if you want to know if you are in the zone.
You are able to hook up an Mp3, iPod, smartphone, or tablet to this treadmill. You will need a male to male auxiliary audio cable to do it. The speakers on this treadmill are not top quality but are definitely louder than my iPhone 6 speaker anyway.
There are two cup holders which is nice. They are quite large and will fit most drink cups. While running, my bottled water does move but not much. It is never in any danger of tipping over.
There is also a ledge which you can lay a book, magazine, or your tablet on. I mainly use it to hold my iPhone, when listening to music, or my remote, so I can quickly fast forward through commercials.
Overall I find this to be a great midrange priced treadmill. I am glad I went with this one opposed to another one I had been thinking about. Would I change anything? Yes, I wish it weren’t so darn heavy. If it were easier to lift the walking deck, I would be able to fold it up without worrying about it falling on me. I am very petite and not very strong really, so your experience may be different from mine.
I would always get shin splints running outside and even at the local gym. I have yet to get any using this one. I am so thrilled! the quick speed and incline are also so much easier to use then the normal up and down buttons. You just hit the single button and it does everything for you. It even has the up and down for both speed and incline in case you want an amount in between.
No one likes running on a treadmill but this one helps out when you can connect a tablet to the aux port and have Netflix play right through the speakers. You never need to use headphones again. The speakers are loud enough to hear what you are watching over the sound of the treadmill.
I will add pictures of the shipping details and how it looked when I opened the box. I was very pleased to see how well it held up during delivery. The instructions also were very easy to follow. I put it together alone and it took me a little over an hour. I would highly recommend laying out all the pieces and reading through the instructions before had to make sure you know what you are doing when you get to each step.
You will not be disappointed with this purchase.
The delivery was on time, they called before they showed up, and the package was about 200 pounds. I was able to slide it down into my basement and get it set up. Took 2 hours by myself to do the setup. Instructions we're pretty good and all the pieces we're there. The treadmill itself does have a clean/nice look about it. It is very sturdy. I'm a big guy at 6'2 275lbs, and it seems like it would hold me just fine.
Without anyone on it, we started it up and it sounded great and very quite. So my wife started the first workout of this treadmill and after 20 minutes the motor underneath the hood started to have an issue. There was this loud ticking/clicking sound coming from the motor (crud).
I emailed Proform Support and didn't here back from them, so I called a couple days later. I was debating about just returning this item back to Amazon, but I didn't really want to go through the hassle of trying to take the treadmill apart, repackaging it, then moving it upstairs and out the door. So after calling them, amazingly (based on reviews), I got an agent in about one minute. The agent had me take off the hood and check a couple of things. I told her the problem and the agent immediately shipped me out a new motor. The agent was very helpful which is why I gave this review 3 stars. If not for the agent, this would be a 1 or 2 star review.
The new motor arrived a week later. Meanwhile Proform just got back to me about my email, lol. Anyways, Proform also sent me an email with a video link that showed me how to replace the motor, which turned out to be very helpful. It took me about an hour to swap the motor out. The hardest part was removing the electrical wires from the connections. The wires are zip tied to the frame, so you have to cut the zip ties to remove the wire assembly and motor. It would have been good for Proform to send replacement zip ties as well for the new motor so I could keep the new wires away from harm. Getting the wires disconnected from the board was hard as they are connected to the board very snug. So I took my time, ensuring I didn't break any connections.
After I got the new motor in, it sounds brand new again. My wife will try another workout so we're crossing our fingers this is the permanent fix. If you buy this you better get an extended warranty and even look into getting the in home warranties that available. I only got a 3 year squaretrade warranty on this. I could have easily busted something under the hood when replacing the motor. All in all so far, I wish I could have afforded a better treadmill. If you can hold out, save up and get a more expensive model, with a better motor, and with a better treadmill company like Horizon or Sole. I'll try to post another update in a month or two to let you know how things are going.
UPDATE: 2 Months Later
After replacing the motor, the Treadmill worked great for about 2 months. Now there is a terrible loud noise coming from what appears to be the motor again. The faster the treadmill goes, the louder it gets. Sounds like a bad bearing in the Motor. Back to Service (LOL, ugh).
