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 Supports iFit Live. 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. The ProForm XT 70 Folding Treadmill gives you 6 Personal Trainer Workouts and 2 Heart Rate Workouts. The 6 Personal Trainer Workouts automatically adjust the incline and speed of your treadmill, each based on an aerobic, weight-loss or performance goal. The 2 heart rate workouts also helps you stay in your target heart rate zone by increasing or lowering the speed when you need to raise or lower your heart rate.Like any Proform treadmill, the XT 70 Folding Treadmill also offers the Dual-Grip EKG Heart Rate Monitor that lets you stay in your target heart rate zone with the grip heart rate monitor. Just grip the handlebars in front of the console for a heart rate reading while you workout. It also offers a 0-10 mph Speed and 0-10% Power Incline. It has a large, green-tinted LCD Console that shows your speed, time, distance, pace, incline, calories burned and pulse. This console also has a 5×7 workout matrix that displays your workout graphically. This treadmill that’s driven by a 1.75 HP motor has a good 10 year motor warranty. : We hunted down the best cheap treadmills on the market for less than.

Good points: at a price well above, there’s nothing that should tempt you to buy it (this is a pro because you won’t get suckered into buying it) small belt and small motor not much information about the treadmill but the belt/motor combination and the price alone is enough to determine that this is not worth spending money on.As one of the latest designs for workout Treadmills, the ProForm XT 70 is built to focus on giving comfort and providing protection to its users during work out. Allow your feet to move around a bit during exercise. With the oversized pedals, you are also provided a firm and stable surface to stand on. No more risk of getting out-balanced accidentally. Get soothed by the smooth and gliding movement of the flywheel enhanced with 13-lb inertia. The natural feel to your legs while pedalling will motivate you to continue with the upper-body workout. The end result will be more calories burned, increased advantage cardio muscles, and a total body workout. Do you have longer legs? You’ll need to adjust the stride length to suit your pace. Setting options range from 13, 15, and 18 inches. Shorter or longer stride distance will have effect on the leg and thigh muscles. If you want to achieve muscle definition quickly, add more strain—meaning a longer stride length. Observe the continuous heart beat report by holding the handle bars attached with Dual-Grip EKG™ Heart Rate monitoring sensors.To last longer and able to finish your training session, use the CoolAire™ Workout Fan to cool off. The settings control is attached to the console so you can easily adjust it to high or low. You’ll work harder when you’re comfortable. Workout programs are available from two sources. The iFit® Workout Cards that offers 4 different categories like wellness, weight loss, circuit training, and performance enchancement. And the second is the built-in 16 workout plans. Choose the settings that will dictate the pace of your exercise. Make it harder or just take it easy and slow. The Treadmill machine has a 275-lbs weight capacity and comes with a Lifetime Frame Warranty. Good points: Multiple albeit short adjustable stride lengths of 13″, 15″ and 18″ Won’t break the bank even at retail price Unit weight not mentioned so likely a flimsy unit Flywheel is definitely on the light side Comments: Well, the Proform XT 70 certainly won’t win any awards for being a top of the line product. What you will get however with the Proform XT 70 is a basic home Treadmill that just gets the job done without breaking the bank. Strong Points: 32 built-in workout programs is a lot for an Treadmill of any price Not many Treadmills can claim that they support users up to 375 pounds but the Proform XT 70E is one of them The 5-year parts and 2-year labor warranty is pretty decent but we’re not exactly blown away by it. Also, it seems that if you’re set on buying from Proform, this warranty is as good as it gets in 2013. Not exactly a strength but we should point out that the XT 70E most likely does include adjustable ramp (as seen on the product pictures) but as it was oddly omitted in the description, we thought we should share this piece of info with you Weak Points: Treadmill is iFit enabled (this means the wireless module is included) but it’s unclear whether the iFit membership is included or not. Proform seems to have done away with the angle-adjustable pedal feature on the Proform XT 70E No distinguishing feature to set itself apart from other mid-end or high-end Treadmills. It doesn’t even come with a wireless heart rate strap which we think is fair for an Treadmill that retails. Verdict: (Verdict based on a review price) At the time of review, the Proform XT 70 was not on sale which means if you want to take this baby home, you’re looking at forking over 2 grand for it. This is not the smartest decision in our opinion because the XT 70E will likely be discounted by at certain times during the year.Compared to its little brother the 910E, the XT 70E is not much better in the features department. Yes, you get a few extra workout programs and a few extra resistance levels as well as an iPad holder. The XT 70E also has the advantage of including the iFit module but it’s unclear as to whether it requires you to purchase an iFit membership separately. Surprisingly, 910E allows you to adjust the angle of the pedals but the upgraded XT 70 seemingly does not. Perhaps the main selling point of the XT 70E then is the upgraded quality and reliability. This machine is rated an impressive 375 lb and the 5-year parts and 2-year labor is as good as it gets from Proform. It’s not quite commercial quality yet but we can’t really expect commercial quality for an Treadmill that sells in the range. 2017 Price Guide Excellent Deal Great Deal Good Deal. The ProForm XT 70 Treadmill machine was given a sleek design and higher-end technical features. It gives a versatile experience in workout with the iFit system allowing users to fully customize their workout. All of the options are shown on the 7” backlit display. Other great additions are the integrated Quick Touch handles that adjust incline, stride length, and resistance, 32 workout apps; a built-in 8-inch CoolAire fan and transport wheels that are front mounted. Other features are: Monitoring the heart rate during a workout is important with the built-in handlebar sensors and Polar Wireless Chest Strap. Both readings are displayed on the console. Oversized, Traction-Control Pedals – The oversized pedals offer a number of different foot positions and still maintain a secure traction grip with comfort. Users can listen to music while they work out by plugging in their iPod into the Intermix Acoustics 2.0 Sound System and play any tracks they want. Train with the latest technology at your fingertips. The removable shelf was made to contain an iPad conveniently close to the user. The device gives access to all of the training tools and entertainment wanted for the workout with the swipe of a finger.
