Proform Performance 1450 Treadmill Review




Losing weight can be a success without pushing yourself to the limit. The Proform Performance 1450 promises comfort and protection while it delivers positive results to your workouts.

Attached with the ProShox Plus™ Cushioning System, the treadmill surface has a built-in shock absorber system that lessen risk to your joints while running. No more sprained ankles or bruised feet soles with the Performance 1450.

You don’t like to run because you tend to jiggle. You’d rather walk for hours than do a vigorous jog that lasts thirty minutes. This treadmill is well-equipped with a sturdy frame and a heavy duty 3.25 CHP DurX™ Commercial Pro Motor to last longer. The revolutionary and dynamically designed spin-balance system keeps its operation noiseless and with only the barest of vibration.

To complement the state-of-the-art treadmill motor, the heavy duty and top grade 20″ x 60″ 2-Ply Commercial Treadbelt was attached to ensure further efficiency and smoothness in performance of the fitness machine.

Now, let’s talk about the brain behind the powerful muscles. The Performance 1450 is well endowed with 26 built-in workout apps that let’s you choose from 6 calorie-burn or 6 speed programs and 7 incline or 7 high intensity settings.

Now before you get tempted to try suddenly intense workouts, take a look first at your heart rate. Just hold the handle bars attached with special sensors called CardioGrip™ Heart Rate Monitor. This is important. By knowing your heart rate, you will know what type of workout to choose to ensure success for the goals you set for yourself.

Navigating around the control settings of Performance 1450 is made easy with the built-in 10” full-color touch screen powered by Android™ to conveniently connect the treadmill online through wireless network. It is also iFit Live™ compatible which directly hooks to Google Maps™.

If you’re looking for the most affordable treadmill that comes with a web browser, the Proform Performance 1450 is probably your best bet as it’s possible to get it for less than $1500. Not only does this treadmill come with a browser, it also comes with iFit Live module. What this essentially means is that Proform is fitting these two new technologies that only just came out in 2010 and 2011 all in one treadmill for an affordable price. The Performance 1450 also comes with a pretty solid warranty and a high weight capacity of 350 lbs. Finally, you also get a very solid 20″ x 60″ which is on the spacious end of all treadbelts on the market. All in all, if you can afford it, the Proformance Performance 1450 is a winner if you can get it at a good price.
