The ProForm 610 RT treadmill is a folding model with a more compact deck (a 55" long belt) and a good size 2.5 CHP motor.

Along with 16 pre-set workouts you have the option to get the iFit Live™ technology and workout with Jillian Michaels.

The ProForm 610 RT treadmill has a 2.5 continuous horsepower motor, a 20" x 55" 2-ply belt, 1-touch selections for speed and incline control, speed up to 12 mph, heart rate sensors on the handlebars, a folding deck design with a hydraulic system to raise and lower the deck, a workout fan, and a 325-lb user weight limit.
Other features include a plug-in port for an iPod or MP3 player, plus it is pre-wired to accept the iFit Live module (optional) which works with your home’s wireless network to access iFit.com and download more training programs as well as update your own personal fitness profile page.
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.
