Proform 570 Crosswalk Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Crosswalks are a bad idea that just keeps hanging around. It must have been a typo but we recently saw this one on sale for $1799. Still laughing about that one!
I guess people still love the idea of the Crosswalk arms but at some point people need to wake up and realize that they aren't getting an upper body workout with this product.
The Proform 570 Crosswalk is a $649 treadmill that makes people think they are getting an upper body workout along with cardio. Unfortunately, Crosswalk models like this one aren't any more effective than a standard treadmill.
The walking area is a good size. The belt measures in at 20"x 55". This is 5" shorter than your standard 20" x 60" walking belt, but it should still be long enough to fit most users' strides. You can find walking areas that are less accommodating than this one in models that are much more expensive.
This machine has a motor that is pretty weak, but it's one of the best you can get for this cheap. Not many treadmills that sell for less than $1,000 have more power producing capabilities than this one.
The cushioning system on this model is excellent. ProSoft Plus Cushioning is used to reduce the impact the walking has on your joints and back. You'd normally have to pay about $1,500 to get a running surface that is as forgiving as this one has.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this treadmill isn't doing well. The life expectancy is short, but it's still better than most in its price range. The quality of parts is also price appropriate, which isn't saying much.
The noise level is surprisingly low considering how inexpensive this machine is. You can definitely find quieter treadmills, but not this cheap.
The warranty on the Proform 570 Crosswalk is awful. Parts and labor are covered for 90 days and the motor is covered for 25 years. Covering parts for only 90 days is an admission from the manufacturer that they don't expect this treadmill to hold up well. We can't say we disagree with them. We wouldn't want to back this machine for any longer than that ourselves.
