How long will the Proform Cadence LT last?

The Proform Cadence LT is an entry-level treadmill. The short warranty tells us that Icon must not have faith in their frame and motor lasting more than a year. The 90-day parts and labor warranty is a bit disappointing as well. Despite this, if you are a walker and smaller than average you may get a few years out of this machine.

Brief Overview

The Proform Cadence LT has a great price and is easy to use, on the other hand, it is lacking in other important areas. Also, this one is a bear to assemble since Proform is asking you to put together about half the machine.

Overall Quality

The Proform Cadence LT overall build is better than most of its competition in this price range. The Treadmill weighs in at roughly 109 LBS and is powered by a 2.25 HP motor. Icon says that has been tested at 10 MPH with a 275 LB adult. It must have been a short test; it is debatable that the controller would be capable of sustaining a large individual for long at that speed. It also only has 8 built-in workout programs. This is to be expected in this price range and is not reflective of its quality as an exercise machine. Icon does offer a 300 lb. weight capacity in spite of the disappointing warranty.

The Proform Cadence LT is an entry-level treadmill. Its low cost makes it sensible to most budget-minded consumers. If you are a runner, above average height, and weight this treadmill may be a gamble. It has some impressive statistics, but that depends on what category of purchase you are looking for. This machine may or may not be for you so carefully consider all options before purchasing.

Jodi Friggle- Very poor qualityJan 02, 2021

The control board went bad after 5 months. The replacement part cost 1/2 as much as I paid for the machine. A waste of money!

Patty- Had for a day and returned Feb 15, 2021

Well, I thought it would work out. I like to do casual running and high-impact walks. Right off the bad severe squeaking and belt was slipping. Maybe for a slow walker, it may be fine I don’t know. So I don’t recommend it. Has only 2 incline levels. Not much of a machine.
