Good points: Comes with 24 preprogrammed workouts and iFit card technology which is an excellent start for those who want variety in their workout programs Comes with an iFit Fitness journal and an intensity meter which are two extra features you don’t usually see from Proform A 350 lb maximum weight is higher than most treadmills in this price range Large belt powered by a 3.0 CHP which is in the upper echelon Would have liked to see a longer warranty Does not support iFit Live despite being a treadmill introduced in 2010 Comments: You can say that the Proform 980 CS is a treadmill that has nothing really going for it. Yet, you can also say the Proform 980 CS is a treadmill that has nothing really going against it. In many ways, the Proform 980 CS is a solid though not necessarily a stellar choice. For example, the belt and the motor are both great for a treadmill that can be had for less than, it has a ton of workout programs, it also has a fitness journal and a workout meter which though unusual, its usefulness can certainly be debated. Which leads us to the conclusion that the Proform 980 CS is a safe, solid but not necessarily a stellar choice.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. The number of built-in workout programs (30) is one of the most we’ve seen for a treadmill that sells for around (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 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. We expect this price to come down to about during certain promotional period which is also the price we recommend you buy at. For, 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.

The ProForm 1050T treadmill is the epitome of a simple yet effective fitness machine. It provides 20 calorie-burning workout programs to choose from and the machine will adjust automatically the speed and incline to suit your goals. A more intense workout is equivalent to more calories burned. That is why the ProForm 1050T treadmill provides you with choices of speed and incline, from 1-12mph and 0-12%, respectively. Heart rate sensors are built into the handlebars so you can always stay within your target training zone, a routine which is proven to efficiently provide workout results. A built-in track-style display gives you accurate information on your workout progress. Your comfort and enjoyment is also important. The ProForm 1050T treadmill enables you to groove along with your favorite tunes while on the machine through a compatible port for iPod or mp3 player and a sound system that provides a rich and equalized sound. Also featured are the 20”x60” running treadbelt that allows you long and natural strides, a SpaceSaver design that help you with after-use storage problems, and a weight limit of 325 lbs. for added durability. With all these features and specifications, there is nothing more to ask for with the ProForm 1050T treadmill. Good points: Larger treadbelt than most treadmills, especially treadmills in this price range (less than during sale) New 2010 design is modern and sleek Longer than average parts warranty at 2 years rather than the typical 1 year Lacking a few of the higher end extra features such as the new iFit Live module support or a built in TV New but unproven model since there are no buyer reviews for it yet Comments: Update (Feb 20th, 2010): The Proform 1050T is selling for one of the lowest prices since its introduction at. We’re not sure if this “weekend sale” price will last beyond this weekend (sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t) but it’s unlikely that you’ll find Proform selling it for less than unless they’re clearing out inventory and having a closeout sale. This probably won’t happen until the end of the year however so if you’ve been thinking about getting this particular treadmill, now is a good as time as any. This is one of the newest models that Proform is currently selling at the time of review (January 2010). With a MSRP of, it sits at the upper middle range of treadmills in Proform’s lineup. As you’re likely to catch it on sale for a price less than, you’ll have to excuse it for not having the “luxury extras” such as the new iFit Live which integrates with Google Maps via Wi-Fi or a built in TV. Luckily, like most treadmills sold by Proform nowadays, you do have iPod support. Warranty at 2 years is a testament to Proform’s confidence in their new lineup’s quality.
