ProForm Performance 600c Treadmill Review




There’s just no telling how far one would want to go in order to achieve their fitness needs.  However, with ProForm, one can engage in a workout that lives up to their standards.  In fact, the ProForm Performance 600c is a machine that will test one’s limits and take them to their fullest potential.

One of the best features in the ProForm Performance 600c is the fact that it’s a highly flexible treadmill.  It can be stored easily whenever it’s not in use with the SpaceSaver Design and EasyLift Assist feature.  Through it, one can  simply deck it up, fold it and keep in storage, or take it out anytime they wish to use it.

There’s also a great deal of diversity in workouts.  In fact, it’s pre-programmed with 22 exercise routines which can guarantee effective results.  These routines were designed wit h the help of a certified personal trainer, thus getting professional training right at home.

A lot of treadmills often make it confusing for people to keep track of their progress.  However, the 6 inch backlit display does away with that concern and helps them keep track of their progress.  Updated information on the time, speed, distance and the number of calories burned during workouts are provided.

Of course, people wish to be comfortable when working out.  With the CoolAire workout fan, one can simply keep training without working up too much sweat.  Users can even adjust its settings on the fly as they work out.

There’s just no denying that ProForm is a brand to be reckoned with.  The ProForm Performance 600c is evidence of that.  With this treadmill, there’s no telling how great of a change a person’s physique will undergo, and all for the better too.


Good Points

  • For about $200 more than the Performance 400c, the Proform Performance 600c come with the following improvements: 4 more workout apps,  LCD instead of LED console, an extra year to the parts warranty, a higher user weight capacity at 325 lbs instead of 300, and 3 additional inches to the treadbelt length (from 55” to 58”)

Bad Points

  • If you’re not going to be buying iFit’s Wi-Fi module, the iFit keys on the console might get in the way
  • Unclear as to how much more the 600c is heavier than the 400c which means we’re not sure of the quality of your running experience. (Generally speaking, the heavier the machine, the less shaky it would feel when running.)

Verdict

The Proform Performance 600c is a slight step up from the 400c at a price of difference of around $200. If you’ve already looked at the 400c and would like something a little better, the Performance 600c is an obvious choice. As outlined in “Good Points” above, the $200 does get you a fair number of improvements and in our opinion, the improvements does justify the extra cost. But we can’t say whether you would need these improvements because everyone’s needs and requirements do differ.

From the Proform Performance 600c, you should expect a reasonably solid STARTER treadmill. It won’t win any awards for its construction nor will it dazzle with you with its set of extra features but you shouldn’t expect the moon at a budget.
