How long will the Proform Trainer 12.0 last?

The Proform Trainer 12.0 is a great choice for people who want something with more durability and stability than their typical treadmill, but less features than other models in this price range! It's perfect for a moderate walker or lightweight runner because it will last longer without kinking up your finances too much (it costs about what you would expect). As always, we want to encourage you to take good care of your treadmill. Change and lubricate your belt and keep your machine in a controlled, clean space and you should be able to use your treadmill for years past the warranty.

Brief Overview

The Treadmill Doctor wants to make sure that our readers get the best workout possible with a machine, so we will only recommend those which have strong builds because they last longer and work towards one goal - getting fit. As such, we consider the Proform Trainer 12.0 coming in under the $1000 price range as a great bargain and has been highly rated by us in the past.

Overall Quality

The Proform Trainer 12.0 is a great treadmill in this lower price range for people who want a larger walking area and more stability while they're speed walking or moderately running/jogging. The motorized treadmill deck is supported by ProShox cushioning technology which controls the impact of each step you take on the treadmill for reduced wear and tear on your joints. The belt measures 22” x 60” giving you added stability and speed control as you work out. There are fifteen levels of incline on this treadmill allowing for customized workouts and peak performance levels. Proform Trainer 12.0 can also go up to speeds of 12mph allowing for an even more challenging workout even though with the larger motor you would expect higher speeds. It contains 32 built-in workouts, a 30-day iFit membership, and contains a great warranty with 5-year parts and 2-year labor. Simultaneously, the 300 lb. weight capacity is more than adequate for its price range. At least this treadmill is foldable so you will be able to save a little space after you reach your fitness goals!
