Proform XT 70 Treadmill Review




The fastest and easiest way to lose weight and feel great is to use the ProForm XT 70 treadmill.  With just one touch of a button, you can choose from 16 different preset programs (walk, jog or run workouts) and you’re on your way to lose those unwanted pounds.   It better intensifies each workout with the revolutionary ProShox intensity positions which provide you with 24 different cushioning levels.  To compliment this, you can choose from 1 to 8 mph machine speed and position incline from 10-20%.

The ProForm XT 70 treadmill also features the state-of-the-art iFit Live technology that allows you to experience the different trails all over the world and even work out with Jillian Michaels.  Your entire workout progress like time, distance and calories burned is easily made available to you through the LCD Grafixx display.

The ProForm XT 70 treadmill makes your time on the machine a very fun experience.  It has a compatible music port for iPod or mp3 and you can instantly listen to your favorite tunes through the Intermix Acoustics 2.0 sound system.  Other specifications of the Proform XT 7 treadmill include a weight capacity of 325 lbs., a roomy 18” x55” running treadbelt, and a 1.75 chp Mach Z motor.


Good points

  • Utilizes an unusual 10% to 20% incline along with ProShox cushioning that changes the workout intensity to maximize calorie burn
  • Impressive 2 year parts warranty for a treadmill that will potentially sell for lower than $700
  • Supports iFit Live

Bad points

  • Belt width at 18″ is too narrow for some we would think
  • No 0% incline so if you want a traditional treadmill workout, it’s not an option

Comments

  • The Proform XT70 along with the XT90 is one of the more interesting treadmills we’ve reviewed. Unlike most treadmills that start at 0% and goes up to a maximum of 10%/12%/15%, the Proform XT70 is either 10% or 20%. If you’ve never worked out at an incline before, do be aware of the fact that it significantly increases the intensity of your workout. Perhaps because it’s so intense a workout that this treadmill’s maximum speed is 8 MPH which is 2 MPH lower than the 10 MPH we’re so used to seeing. Another way of saying it is that Proform knows that not many people can endure a 10 MPH workout never mind 10 MPH at 10% or 20%. (For those who are up to the challenge, look into the XT90).
  • This treadmill is backed by a 2 year parts warranty which we found surprising considering the price, the 1.75 CHP motor which is on the low end, and the fact that the treadmill design is somewhat experimental. For treadmill lovers, the XT 70 is worth trying.
