What We Say

At the time of this review, the ProForm 610 RT treadmill was priced at $1,299 which is too much to pay for what you get. With these specs, this model only makes sense when it goes on sale for around $800 or less. You should compare ProForm’s other competing Series of treadmills to get better warranties, more powerful motors, new incline/decline decks, and more features for $1,299. The 610RT is a standard model, but with fierce competition out there, it has to be priced right to beat out a Sole, Livestrong, or NordicTrack at any price from $800 to $1,300.
