Proform Performance 1450 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
If you are looking at this one I would look at the Pro 2000 model. It has most of the same features for a few hundred less.
Motor that is powerful enough to drive extreme running
A powerful motor packing 3.25 HP is enough to drive a stupendous belt and efficient drive system for a smooth, nearly noise free and effective fitness routine. Runners can effortlessly accelerate to 12 mph, and enjoy the peace of mind provided by lifetime warranty protection.
Standard belt for smooth walking and running
Having a strong motor is a plus point, getting a standard sized 20" x 60" belt is a bonus. Both combine effectively to add fizz to power running. The immediate benefits are a longer stride for taller runners (without knocking the console), width stability and enhanced running safety.
A 15% incline reduces stress on your joints, and along with a package of 26 workout apps you have all the ammo to add challenge and variety to your routine, and burn fat faster.
The air based cushioning is one of the highlights of this treadmill and does a very good job reducing the stress of running. It will protect your limbs and joints by providing you one of the softest surfaces in the $1,500 price point. This is definitely value for money.
Good user weight tolerance
This machine backed by its powerful motor can accommodate heavier users up to 350 pounds comfortably, without significantly increasing the noise factor.
Warranty is immaculate
Frame and motor get lifetime warranty support; for parts it is 5 years and 2 years for labor, delivering extremely good protection for its price.
May be a bit too costly for the average user
This is perhaps one strong reason you won't find users flocking to the counters for this model. The average user may be more attracted to models that provide reasonable features at lower price points. For a couple of hundred dollars lower down you might prefer the Proform Pro 2000, another very high quality machine.
This treadmill may be over delivering for average users
If average user weighs in at 200 pounds and uses a treadmill infrequently, it doesn't make sense to plug a product that is heavy on quality and features and at a much higher price. Their needs could be satisfied at price points in the lower ranges.
Too big for a small home?
Folding does reduce the inconvenience of storage but when it unfolds you will have dimensions measuring 81" L x 37" W x 59" H to deal with, so plan your space before engaging this treadmill.
Quality, a strong motor and an excellent drive system makes this one of the better models to come out of the Proform high-end stable. The fantastic cushioning and the excellent warranty are also value-adding features.
We suggest you take a slow serious look at the Proform Pro 2000, which ensures top quality and delivers the same features and is $200 cheaper. The 2000 is also the second runner up to NordicTrack C1570 Pro in the Best Buy Awards in the $1000 to $1299 category.If you would have told me last year that I would like a $1500 Proform, I would have laughed but apparently Proform got the last laugh.
