There’s a lot to get excited about regarding the ProForm 7.0 CrossTrainer treadmill. It’s as if ICON Fitness said, let’s do this one special, sensible, and make it look sleek and elegant so that it reminds people of a high end club model at first glance. Is this the best-looking budget treadmill we’ve ever seen? We’d have to go back and review dozens of models to find one better.
The ProForm 7.0 CrossTrainer treadmill has Grafixx™ Display for information such as your calories burned, distance, time, heart rate, calories burned and so on.

Experts point out that the ProForm 7.0 CrossTrainer offers advanced joint protective technology with the presence of the ProTech 3™ adjustable cushioning, it comes with a powerful 2.25 CHP commercial treadmill motor, and the 1-touch controls for speed and power incline. You should probably opt to extend the parts and labor warranty at checkout, but otherwise, the 12-year motor warranty is exceptional.
In most ProForm treadmill reviews you are bound to come across mention of the iFit® Challenge Log and Training Center, including cool features like 3 separate meal plans (1400, 1800, 2200 calories). Also, on the treadmill dash, you’ll find weight-loss workouts, cross-training workouts, and 24 separate cross-training workouts. Cross training is a new fitness approach that is all the rage with customers who are learning how to incorporate weight training into their cardio-only treadmill workouts.
The ProForm 7.0 CrossTrainer effectively delivers one of the better concepts in a cardio and muscle building treadmill. From the extensive workouts to the high standard motor and the very attractive design, there’s not much to dislike about this machine.
Probably not a good fit for a serious runner, but a good machine for a serious walker. The ProForm 7.0 CrossTrainer treadmill rates a good buy, especially at the sale price. The MSRP is $1299, but you can find this baby selling for around $699.
