Nonetheless, if you do manage to read this review in time, the Proform iSeries 800 is a solid choice for your home at. Though it may not be the most well equipped nor is it the most sturdily built, you’ll be getting more than your money’s worth if you buy this.

ProForm has always been known to be on the bleeding edge of fitness technology. However, there’s always room for improvement and the company has ensured of that. In fact, The Official 800 is definitely a treadmill that will push people to achieve maximum efficiency in training.

This is a little gadget which one can wear on their finger and help them adjust the speed settings of the machine. One can go all the way up to 15 miles per hour as he or she gradually increases its settings. Another thing that’s gotten a lot of people praising this treadmill is the inclusion of high definition 800 workout videos. There’s the opportunity to simulate actual running conditions, along with automatic decline and incline too. One can simulate running across hills to go all the way up to 20 percent in incline. Of course, ProForm continues to include the wireless chest strap. After all, there’s no better way for a person to get a great workout than when they’re keeping track of your own heart rate. One can certainly get the most efficient training without putting themselves at risk of injury or ailment. Users can also set their target cadence through the LCD console display. This serves a purpose similar to a metronome, in which users will be running based on their body rhythm. With this feature, training is at peak efficiency. The Official 800 treadmill is definitely a highlight among ProForm’s lineup of fitness equipment. People will be challenged to push themselves to the limits and simply achieve the kind of physique they’ve always wanted. This is definitely a machine that’s worth the money.
