There are a number of cool features on this model to note, including the 3.5 continuous horsepower commercial pro motor which is spin-balanced and tested for superior performance. Other features on the ProForm Pro 2000 treadmill include a large 22" x 60" 1-ply belt, a new full surface suspension system with cushioning to reduce impact on your joints, speed up to 12 mph, and the deck has a folding spacesaver design with an EasyLift™ Assist and self-locking latch for added safety.
Along with 32 programs that include high intensity, speed, and calorie-burn workouts, the ProForm Pro 2000 comes with an incline / decline deck that raises up to 15% or lower to -3% to simulate hill work during programmed workouts. You can do your daily treadmill walk/run to sounds coming from the built-in sound system that has 3" high excursion drivers in the speakers, and a plug-in port for an iPod or MP3 player.
Also available is iFit with additional workouts designed by trainer Jillian Michaels which can be downloaded from the web. The feature works with Google Maps™ so you can run virtual trails, and you can keep track of your fitness progress with your own online profile.
Keep in mind that you do need to use your tablet to use the Google map feature of iFit or to access the internet. If you'd rather have it built into the machine itself, you'll have to opt for the uplevel PRO 5000 with a 7" touch screen or the top of the series PRO 9000 with a 10" web-enabled touch screen.
