The Performance 1450 has been updated with some great features from the NordicTrack line. Very solid machine for the money.
If you would have told me a few years ago that I would like a $1,500 Proform, I would have laughed but apparently Proform got the last laugh. Icon is putting more and more quality into their $1,500 units and has really taken steps to take over this category. All you have to do is see the shells of companies that used to build in this range- Pacemaster, Smooth, Theradyne, Keys, Ironman, Trimline, and many more. Icon simply has put the squeeze on everyone.
