0 – 15% Quick Incline
We consider incline training the treadmill game changer—you can literally condition your body for those challenging uphill routes. The Power 995i offers powered, automatic incline adjustability. When you train with incline, you know you’re giving your legs the best workout possible on a treadmill.
20-inch x 60-inch Tread Belt
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 60-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.
SpaceSaver Design with EasyLift Assist
We know you like your house to be clutter-free. So we invented a treadmill that folds up and out of the way when you’re done with your workout. It totally rocked the fitness industry; but honestly, we’re just glad you don’t have to sacrifice your living space for your fitness habit anymore. And as an added bonus, we built in a powerful shock that helps you lift the deck with an easy push.
0 – 12 MPH QuickSpeed
Not everybody runs at 12 miles per hour. But it’s nice to know this treadmill can totally handle it. Thanks to a bigger motor size and faster flywheel gear ratio, the Power 995i rocks a top speed of 12 mph. Our in-home efficiency booster means you can run every day without using excessive amounts of electricity. And the convenient QuickSpeed buttons let you adjust your intensity instantly, so you can stay focused through every step of your workout.
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.
CoolAire Workout Fan
Our built-in CoolAire fan keeps your workout comfortable from the moment you step onto the deck to the moment you step off. Choose from two speed settings for instant control—because one of the joys of indoor workouts is climate control. Even if it’s raining outside, foggy, blazing hot, or bad air quality—it’s no big deal.
Sprint ahead of the pack when you train on the ProForm power 995 I Treadmill. Every feature is designed to help you get through the race and break your personal record. It all starts with a 3.0 CHP Mach Z commercial plus motor capable of pushing you to speeds of 12 mph. The extra-long 20-inch by 60-Inch tread belt is commercial quality and the ProShox cushioning helps you cut recovery time by reducing impact on your joints. Don't forget the revolutionary if it Enabled technology-access Unlimited workouts designed by certified personal trainers, Google Maps routes across the globe, and instantaneous stat tracking. Make your training a priority with the ProForm power 995 I Treadmill.

It is really comfortable to run on and in my opinion very quiet. No squeak, whistle, etc, just a nice sound of the tread running. The incline and speed works great. I am a heavy guy and have "stomped" nearly 100km on it in 10 days and it is holding up good, and the impact absorption is great. The incline is quick to change and 15 (max) is more than enough to challenge the most enthusiastic runner. The tread is centered, has not creeped and the machine has not "slipped" or "stuttered" at all in all the time I've spent on it. I do have it plugged in a power surge strip that meets the requirements and turn it off when finished (not sure if that really helps but.....).
The ifit system was no problem for me. I followed the instructions to connect to WiFi. Got a code from the treadmill entered it into the ifit page after logging into my account as described in manual and all works great. (just make sure after each run I turn the machine off after the data has uploaded from treadmill to the ifit account)
I create running routes at ifit.com, I schedule them and then download to treadmill by pushing the ifit button. I use my ipad to live-view my workout and I get to see the google streetview as I run along. It syncs perfectly and changes the incline to match the route I am running. I have run all over the word now :-). I probably will not use any other functionalities programmed in the treadmill so I will not comment on them.
Fan works well.
Cons (if you can call them that)
It is BIG and long... I ended putting it in an entirely different place in the house to where I thought it would go.
It is HEAVY... hence the change in location as I would not be able to get it up or downstairs.
It took me all afternoon to assemble. You have to take your time and carefully follow the not to detailed instructions. You really need to be technically minded to assemble this treadmill. But you can have someone do it for you. (phone number on front of manual)
If you are using the internal speakers (which are nice) the unit will beep loudly whenever the incline changes or speed changes if you have the volume on. It is a safety feature that can not be disabled. I just find it annoying so I turn the volume off and I do not use the sound through the treadmill to play music... easy solution.
so as you can see I really don't have cons as such. It is very early days and I will update this review if it dies or something else happens not so nice.
Can't beat Amazon's free shipping, especially on items like these, weighing over 200 lbs. The box was delivered right into my basement thanks to the freight company's very nice and very helpful driver.
Now, putting all together.... we had to do it ourselves and it was not an easy job and it wasn't easy for several reasons.
- The manual's 16-step assembly process was not as helpful as I expected.
- The dozens of parts were not labeled.
- The 'how to assemble it' video, while a little better than the manual, would often skip over steps or things were done so quickly, it was often difficult to follow.
- Many screws did not fit very well and had to use extreme force to... force them in.
On the positive side, I believe that there was always one extra screw and nut in each category.
It took us several hours spread over 3 days to complete the assembly but, yeah, once we had it all together, we found ourselves with a nice treadmill that should last and in fact did last.
Should mention that ProForm can send someone to do the assembly for you if you find the task impossible or overwhelming. They will also charge a few hundred dollars for the convenience.
We had to call them as we were doing the assembly because one part was missing. It took almost one hour for someone to pick up the phone and then another 5 or 10 minutes to persuade the help person that we were a lot more interested in getting that missing part than in buying some extended warranty for something that was still on the floor in separate pieces.
To make the story short, the super-polite person agreed to send us the part and promised to send us a confirmation email. It never came and, after another 30 minutes or so on hold the following day, someone else desperately trying to sell us some extended warranty agreed to send us the missing part. Of course, it was going to be UPS ground because... why hurry, right? They already had our money.
The part arrived eventually but the one lesson to learn is that you should be prepared to spend a lot of time on hold.
The manual covers assembly and briefly describes what happens when you push some of the buttons. To my surprise, there is nothing on maintenance. A help support/extended warranty salesperson advised that... yeah, maybe it needs to be lubricated once a year and if you buy the ProForm lubricant they'll tell you how to do it for sure and... keep it someplace where there's not much dust.
There is also a section on iFit. More about it later.
The main reason sometimes I love this treadmill is that once you put it together it's such a great piece of equipment. It looks great and running on it feels great, once you get it to run.
Amazon's page has a lot of specs on it and all is true. It comes with a 2-speed fan, can play your music, has 2 nice cup holders, the display is okay and most of the buttons are within reach. This treadmill feels solid, powerful and reliable when used.
And then... it's the software. If you are not planning to buy the iFit cartridge think twice before buying the treadmill. Unless you don't mind manually and constantly adjusting the speed and incline during your workouts. The 30 built-in so-called workout apps are as basic as they come and not worthy of such a great piece of hardware.
But there's iFit to the rescue. Or is it?
The concept behind iFit is nothing short of genius. The cartridge should allow your treadmill to constantly communicate with ProForm's or iFit's mothership over the Internets and, once you get your account and iFit knows who you are and what your goals may be, there's a Web site that keeps track of your workouts and it beams up activities to your treadmill so that you can train with Jillian Michaels or some other fitness celebrities as the software would control the speed and incline, play the trainer's encouragements and get you something different to do every day.
Great concept, and there can be up to 4 different account per iFit cartridge. Your first year 'membership' is free but you will have to pay after that if you still want workouts sent over to you and access to the site that keeps track of what you do. If you don't pay... good luck. It's still a good, solid treadmill but you're on you own.
The problem is that iFit doesn't work very well. I got it to work most of the time but my main motivation was the treadmill being almost useless otherwise. And here are the iFit issues:
- It requires that your router supports 802.11b. For anyone not familiar with Wi-Fi, 802.11b is a very old and very slow Wi-Fi protocol. My router claims support for 802.11b/g/n but it turns out that the iFit didn't want to talk to it. The support person's best suggestion was to replace my high performance router with 'an old router' that I may find around the house. In the end, I was able to overcome this by plugging into the 'big' router a tiny one meant for travel which, lucky me, was accepted by iFit.
- The Web site seems to be constantly redesigned which makes the interface more than a little confusing. In more than one instance programs I opted out reappeared as 'active' one or two days later. In addition, its actually keeping track of our workouts is something that happens most of the time while sometimes a workout is not registered, or is registered one or two days later or sometimes it's registered more than once and at other times the site would update 'distance' but not 'elevation'. In other words... glitches. They come and go.
- The interface between the Web site and the iFit module doesn't always work. Programs I subscribe at the Web site or new accounts for my other family members I created didn't appear on my treadmill until the iFit module was reinitialized. Sometimes iFit will refuse to update the workouts for one person/account, claiming 'time out' while working just fine with someone else's account.
But, in the end, you can make it work if you have the patience and don't mind spending some time learning certain 'patterns' and playing with Wi-Fi routers. Believe it or not, I am quite happy now.
One thing that they don't make it very clear, iFit and ProForm appear to be the same company or maybe 'sister' companies. The support/salesperson of extended warranties confessed supporting both the treadmill and the iFit.
And one other thing, also heard form 'support': they may release soon a new and more 'modern' iFit module that would actually work with most of today's Wi-Fi equipment so maybe waiting a little before buying would be a good idea.
DO I LIKE IT? AND WHAT TO DO
I will rate ProForm's treadmill a 3 stars because of all the frustration and irritation that came with it but, now that most but not all of it is behind, I feel that I am getting good workouts out of it - I am training for a 'half marathon' and the iFit software is gently getting me fit and I expect to actually run it in several weeks. However, I don't believe that most buyers are going to be happy with this purchase because there are so many things that could go wrong. One may not be able to assemble it because it's not 'easy' and then have to pay hundreds more for a 'pro' job, the iFit may not work with your router or the software may refuse to work with your iFit.
So, my conclusion... buy it if you you are willing to face a challenge making it work before you face the challenge of actually doing your workouts.
