  • How Long Will The Proform Pro 2000 Last?

    Proform has been known to differentiate their products in slightly different price points to be better suited for runners or walkers. Our Third Place Best Buy Winner, the Proform Performance 1800i, is almost identical to this treadmill but with a slightly less sturdy build. A reasonable conclusion would, thus, be that Proform has built the Pro 2000, which is few dollars more, to be better suited for runners. While we do not recommend someone training for a marathon or accustomed to daily running for long periods of time to purchase machines in this price point, someone who enjoys jogging or light running may fare well with this treadmill. The quality put into this machine, while not the best, is likely to provide at least a few good years of moderate use. Just be sure to do your homework on how to take care of your treadmill. A few simple steps to create an ideal environment for your machine will help to ensure a longer life.
  • Brief Overview

    Proform has equipped the Pro 2000 with a sturdy build, unique incline, and their predictable amount of workout programs all backed by a slightly above average warranty. Accordingly, we have awarded this treadmill First Place in our 2019 Best Buy race among the $1,000 to $1,299-dollar category. We would recommend this machine for a light runner or heavy jogger.
  • Overall Quality

    I think it is safe to say that this treadmill may be one of the best of the cheaper treadmills currently on the market. While this machine may not be the thousand-dollar glass of Pinot Noir, it resembles the best boxed Moscato. The Pro 2000 has one of the sturdiest builds of the $1,000 to $1,299-dollar machines; a good indication of this treadmill's durability. The warranty is also slightly above the standard for this price with five-year parts and two-year labor warranty. As always, Proform has also thrown in a large number of built-in workout programs. We are glad to see such additions when they are mirrored with utility.

    One intriguing new addition that Proform has added is a decline ability. The Pro 2000 can decline 3% along with the standard incline capacity of 15%. Proform claims that this is a new way to increase your training and test your strength. They may just want to see how many people will smack their face on the control board and may be working on a new line of yoga mats for padding… Either way, we do like to recognize efforts to add value to machines when possible, and a three percent decline ability is certainly not standard for most treadmills.

    The other features that come with the Pro 2000 are relatively standard: a twenty-two-inch walking area, 12mph speed capacity, foldability, and three hundred and fifty-pound weight capacity. Just be sure to keep in mind what also comes with buying a Proform product: Icon's customer service. Icon, Proform's parent company, has displeased many customers in the past with slow, unsatisfying service. If your eye starts to twitch when you hear hold music for extended periods of time, you may want to keep that in mind.

  • History

    The Pro 2000 has won multiple awards from us over the years thanks to the consistency in quality parts. For the price range, we have strongly recommended this treadmill seeing as how the parts over the years have challenged treadmills in the $3,000-dollar range. While Proform has cut a few corners over the years and has yet to dramatically improve their customer service, the Pro 2000 has proven to be a quality machine over the past six years.
  • Conclusion

    Our 2019 First Place Best Buy Winner has fared well among the $1,000 to $1,299 dollar machines. The Pro 2000 strikes a good balance between style and substance. A decent amount of workout programs and an uncommon incline capability are both matched by a slightly above average warranty and a respectable build. While we do not recommend a treadmill with this price tag for heavy runners, the Proform Pro 2000 is likely to fair well for a moderate jogger or a light runner.
