ProForm Power 995c Treadmill Review




Proform has long been in the fitness equipment industry.  With an established brand, there are certainly many people looking to avail of their products.  Of course, if one is serching for utmost comfort while still working out, then the ProForm Power 995c should be just the thing.

The ProForm Power 995c revels in the fact that it’s got 30 built-in applications which are all designed with the help of a certified fitness instructor.  These apps can help people become motivated to engage in a workout that guarantees maximum weight loss. Each of these workouts are also adjustable, and people can choose the speed and incline settings to fit their fitness levels.

However, that’s not all that this machine can offer.  In fact, there’s also got a wireless pulse strap which can fit on the user’s chest in order to get an optimal workout while constantly monitoring themselves.  It shows users readings of their performance through the built-in console.

One of the best things about the ProForm Power 995c is that it’s quite portable.  The SpaceSaver design makes for an added benefit when people just want to store the machine when they’re not using it.  It’s EasyLift Assist feature simply lets the user fold it up and keep in the closet to save space.

Good Points

  • The number of built-in workout programs (30) is one of the most we’ve seen for a treadmill that sells for around $1000 (when it’s on sale)
  • Has some of the more important and useful bells and whistles like MP3 player, workout fans, touch and wireless heart rate monitors. There are certainly treadmills with more extra features at this price but we would say the Proform 995c is nonetheless, well-equipped if you’re buying it at the sale price
  • Overall warranty is very competitive in its price class but to stand head and shoulders above its competition, we would have liked to see either a 4 or 5 year parts warranty or a 2 year labor warranty.
  • A 20” x 60” is more spacious than likely 80% of the treadmills currently on the market. A 3.0 CHP motor should also be more than adequate to power this belt.
  • Proform has released several treadmills under the name Proform Power 995 in the past so the Power 995c might be considered as an upgrade to a previously popular and successful product

Bad Points

  • The 350 lb weight capacity is above average but since Proform usually does not reveal the weight of the product, we wonder if this number holds weight
  • Supports but does not come with the iFit Wi-Fi module

Verdict

At the time of review, the Proform Power 995c is selling at the regular web price of $1999. We expect this price to come down to about $1000 during certain promotional period which is also the price we recommend you buy at.

For $1000, it is also among the most competitive products you’ll find anywhere at least in 2012. The belt, motor, built-in workouts, extra features and so on leaves very little complain about at this price. The main concern we have is how well it would stand up to heavier users since Proform did not specify the weight of the product. However, if your heart is set on buying a Proform treadmill, know that they almost never state upfront the weight of their products.
