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.
Total length: 72”

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.
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).
Electronically, the programming options cover all the basics but nothing that will knock your socks off. The intervals could be a bit better as well as the flexibility in adjusting the overall workout. The console provides a nice multitude of metrics so nice to have all immediately visible. I am a big fan of the built in speakers/audio jack so you can ditch the headphones and hook your phone up directly to the treadmill to get a decent volume for whtaever music/show you care to listen to!
Again, this is not the most amazing treadmill on the market but it is one of the better options you may find for its cost in terms of the needs it meets for the infrequent runner!

The shipping company was not the greatest and there was some (3) very minor small cracks but Amazon was awesome and I kept it and Amazon had me at how can I help you? It took my wife and I 3 hours putting it together, we're still married so it's not too bad to set up. Display is bright, clear and the incline is great. Most of all it if very quite and sturdy. My knees have aged as well, but the running board is soft so they feel great after a 30 minute run while listening to Rush! Great buy and I would reccommed this to anybody!
It took me around 3 hours to assemble the product. I assembled it by myself. Instruction on how to assemble was clearly described so it was not very difficult follow the instruction. I needed power drill to put some screws.
I have not yet used Ifit so i don't know how it works. Treadmill is loud so the built-in speakers are useless because you can barely hear the sound from the speakers while running.
I would recommend this treadmill to my friends and relatives if they are looking for a budget treadmill.
Treadmill itself works great. I can run on it with absolutely no issues. It wasn't too hard to put together, although it does take a while (took about 2 hours with 2 people following directions carefully).
Bought a cheap rubber mat for it and after a couple months of occasional use I had to purchase some interlocking foam tiles for additional support. There are a few points underneath the treadmill that puncture into the mat.
