With a 2.75 CHP motor and 12 mph speed, the ProForm Performance 600i treadmill is one of the more powerful machines available at this price level, and a step up from the 400i model.
It also features a 12% power incline, 20" x 60" walking area, an improvement over the previous model, advanced ProShox™ Cushioning for shock absorption to relieve stress on the joints, a convenient SpaceSaver® fold-up design with hydraulic lift assist, a cooling fan, and heart rate grip monitors on the handlebars.
The console programming allows the user to access the internet via Wi-Fi with iFit Coach technology, which is one of the most appealing features.
iFit gives you special workouts designed by Jillian Michaels and other Certified Personal Trainers, plus workouts powered by Google Maps™, which allows you to walk down trails and city streets from Paris to Boston to your own neighborhood, and the machine automatically adjusts the incline for you.
The Performance 600i treadmill is solid and is a great entry level model for your home.
