ProForm Treadmills - Factory Direct
The ProForm Performance 400 treadmill allows access to a number of programs online via the iFit® Live software, although it isn’t necessary to use this feature if you don’t have a computer or the internet in your home. It is a nice option to download workouts powered by Google Maps™, or training with audio provided by Jillian Michaels of The Biggest Loser TV show fame. The ProForm Performance 400 also has a Nike + iPod® feature that lets you connect your iPod player to the treadmill, do your workout, and then sync your results online at Nikeplus.com. This is a great way to keep track of your progress, including time, miles, and calories burned.
If you don’t want to bother with any of those fancy features listed above, you’ve still got a decent walker’s treadmill that offers a 2.25 CHP motor, ProShox™ Lite Cushioning for shock absorption on the deck, a 20" x 55" belt, workout fan on the console, 10% power incline, pre-set programs plus manual control, and a fold-up deck design. The large console is simple to operate, and the LED windows showing time, speed, heart rate, etc., are easier to read than LCD windows found on other treadmills.
What We Say
The early treadmill reviews on this new 2011 model are very encouraging. It isn’t a runner’s treadmill, nor should it be used by multiple-user households, but it would be ideal for seniors or casual walkers who want easy access to daily walking exercise without having to go outdoors. ProForm excels at packing a lot of value into its budget line of machines, and the new ProForm Performance 400 treadmill should be a big seller for them.
