Proform Power 995 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Beautiful unit that has the ifit Live feature which is really quite impressive. A solid entry level machine for many.
The ability to race others live on the Internet and the touch screen make you forget this is a Proform. If it works long-term, these treadmills could put everyone else out of business.
The Proform Power 995 is a great combination of quality and features at $999. iFit live is sure to keep you entertained, although it has been known to have problems with glitches. You also have to buy wireless adapter separately to enjoy that particular feature.
The walking area is a good size. The belt measures in at 20" x 60", which has become the standard size walking belt on today's treadmills. This should be plenty of size for larger users to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
Inside this machine you'll find a very good motor. There are many models that cost over $2,000 that have similar power producing capabilities. You can reach speeds of up to 12 mph with this treadmill, so even experienced runners should be able to challenge themselves.
There aren't many cushioning systems that are better than the one this model offers in this price range. ProShox Elite 2 Cushioning is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. It uses four isolators to accomplish this. Many treadmills that cost several hundred dollars more offer running surfaces that are less forgiving or wear out quicker.
The projected reliability of this machine is good. You can expect a treadmill that costs this little to have a longer life expectancy than this one. That quality of parts is also very high for the price. It will take a few hundred to a thousand extra dollars before you'll see a major jump in the quality of parts.
The warranty on the Proform Power 995 is average. Labor is covered for 1 year, parts are covered for 3 years, and the frame is covered for life. Not many treadmills that are this inexpensive will have coverage that is this good, but you can find some that offer better if you know where to look. This warranty shows that Proform has a good amount of confidence in this model.
