How long will the Proform Trainer 720 last?

The Proform Trainer 720 is a heavier, more durable treadmill than most in its price range. It's designed for an average height and build adult who weighs 300 pounds or less - but don't let that weight make you think this machine won't get your blood pumping! With 18 built in workout programs and a wider 20x55 belt tread it will provide all the motivation needed to keep going strong no matter how much muscle fatigue takes over when working out! As with all machines in this price range, the durability of a treadmill depends on how often and heavily you use it. This treadmill might be a gamble at first, but it could last you years if maintained well and doesn’t get too much abuse from heavier or more active users.

Brief Overview

The Proform Trainer 720 is a solid treadmill in the $499-$699 price range for its larger running surface, program selection, and more powerful motor. It is an entry-level folding treadmill that has a bulkier build than most machines at this price point. The motor should be able to handle a mid-sized jogger even though boredom might set in after conquering the 18 programs built in and iFit is not an option with this purchase.

Overall Quality

The Proform Trainer 720 is a bit more basic as far features go and can be what you need. The heavier than average unit weight, coupled with the wide running surface makes this treadmill stand out from other models in its price class. Both speed or incline ranges are fairly broad in either case so there's something here perfectly suited for just about any moderate user. While not incredibly technologically advanced, it should be able to handle larger joggers due to the wider tread. The 10-year frame warranty is stellar, but the 1 year on parts and labor is low. We suggest keeping your machine well-maintained as this will increase the life and years you receive in your search for your fitness goals.

Proform Trainer 720 is a decent, sturdy entry-level machine without the frills you normally see with the inclusion of iFit and on other Proform models. The weight of this treadmill is heavier than most and it comes with a higher performing drive motor and a larger running area. The Trainer 720 is a budget-friendly option for those who want to get in shape without breaking their bank accounts. While the machine offers an average warranty, it's comparable with other similarly priced models.
