Proform Crosswalk 395 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
This baby is so ugly, you should slap the mother. On the outside, it is a great looking little package. Once you see the quality of materials, it gets ugly.
Once you look under the skin, you see how really ugly this treadmill is going to be long-term.
Given that we are neither fans of cheap, poorly made treadmills, nor Crosswalks, the Proform Crosswalk 395 is not a model we are particularly fond of. Even at $499, you're getting a below average value with this treadmill.
The walking area is quite small. The belt measures in at 18" x 50". This is significantly smaller than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt. Users with wide stances or long strides may feel less comfortable on this model than they would with one that offers a more accommodating walking area.
This machine has one of the worst motors in all the treadmills we reviewed. It's extremely uncommon to see a model that is only capable of producing this little power. You can reach speeds of up to 10 mph, but you'll end up ruining the structure and drive system if you use this model for running. It's only built to handle moderate walking.
The cushioning system on this treadmill is pretty bad. A TreadSoft system is used to reduce the impact of walking on your joints and back. Cheaper models like this may fool you by providing a running surface that feels as forgiving as those on more expensive models, but they typically wear out much quicker.
If you're hoping to keep this machine in working condition for a long time, our best advice is not to use it. The projected reliability of this treadmill is atrocious. It has one of the shortest life expectancies you'll find. Commenting on the quality of parts is difficult because it requires the use of the word 'quality.'
Cheap treadmills tend to be loud, and this model is one of the worst offenders. In fact, if it wasn't for the True M100, there wouldn't have been a single treadmill that made more noise during operation than this one.
The warranty is very sad for the Proform Crosswalk 395. Parts and labor are covered for 90 days, while the motor is covered for 5 years. We're almost surprised they didn't offer a warning in place of coverage.
