What You Need To Know About the Proform Pro 2000 Treadmill
Proform Pro 2000 Treadmill Review – The Good, the Bad and The Ugly:
The Proform Pro 2000 is a mid-range treadmill from Proform that gives you some fairly popular features. The main one being that you get up to a 3% decline with this treadmill.
This is great for crosstraining and helps add some spice to your workouts.
The Pro 2000 also comes iFit compatible. This means that (if you subscribe to iFit), you can use the wireless internet in your home to link up your treadmill to the net.
From there you can download new workouts from Jillian Michaels, map out new trails to run using Googlemaps and Google streetview and track your workout progress online.
If you need more entertainment options, there’s also an iPod dock with a fairly decent console sound system, so you can play your favorite tunes.
Proform is also currently throwing in a wireless heart rate monitor as well – which many people find is more accurate than the hand grip pulse monitors (also included in this treadmill).
While the backlit console on this unit is easy to read, it’s only dual color – not multi color. For a treadmill over $1000, I personally would want a multi-color console. Also, I found the console window to be on the smaller side.
Be aware that while iFit is an option – you have to purchase a yearly subscription (around $99) in order to use iFit. You can still use the treadmill without iFit of course, but the iFit will be extra (some people think it comes automatically free with this treadmill).
The price on this unit also jumps around – which can be confusing. At one price, it’s a good deal. But at another, not so much.
Is It Worth Your Money?
This is a hard question. If you really want the decline option and like the Proform name, then it may be the right choice for you.
They sometimes have it on sale here with Free Shipping.
At the current price point however, I would probably choose a similarly priced Nordic Track instead which gives you a bit more for the money.
