The Premier 900 is part of a new series from ProForm, offering the latest technology to maximize your workouts. Along with the 1300, these two treadmills are a welcome addition to the lineup.
Not typically found on an entry level treadmill, the Premier 900 gives you a 7" color touch screen which is fully web-enabled, so you can surf the web, update your social media pages or watch videos and movies while you work out.
You can also see all of your workout stats including calories burned, heart rate, incline level, speed, time and distance.
Let's take a look at some of the specs...
The Premier series was introduced for the 2016 model year and it focuses on the technology aspect. There are only two models currently, the 900 and the up-level ProForm 1300 model.
With the Premier 900, you have a web-enabled touch screen which you previously did not get in an entry level machine. Now you have it without paying extra which is a great bonus.
It also has a more powerful motor than before, with a 3.0 CHP commercial motor, typically found on $1500+ treadmills as well as iFit built right into the machine rather than having to be accessed on your tablet only. (which you can do as well if you choose)
For those unfamiliar with iFit, it is ICON Fitness' proprietary program that gives you access to additional, fitness-trainer designed workout programs, tracking, customization and sharing capability as well as access to Google maps to virtually run anywhere worldwide.
There is a fee for iFit, but it's only about $99 per year...well worth it even if you use the machine once a month even.
Some other nice features on the ProForm Premier 900 include an adjustable tablet holder, ProShox cushioning for low impact workouts, SpaceSaver design for easy folding and storage, adjustable workout fan and easy speed/incline controls.
Time will tell if the Premier treadmills will be as well received as the other models from ProForm, but early reviews look quite promising.
Even though the ProForm Premier 900 is an entry level machine, at about $999 on sale, it has features and capabilities you'd expect from a mid-level model.
It has a powerful motor, a nice sized touch screen with an Android web browser, iFit built right in, incline capability and 30 workouts. Add to that all of the comfort features and space saving design and you have yourself a real winner.
You may also want to look at the Premier 1300, which is about $300 more but offers a 10" touch screen, 3.5 CHP motor, larger running belt and more workouts.
Either way, the Premier series has a lot to offer and is worth consideration if you're in the market for a new treadmill.
