When completely assembled, the ProForm Pro 2000 measures at dimensions of 80 x 40 x 63 inches of length, width, and height respectively. Its running track is wide and spacious, coming at measurements of 60” x 20” which is ideal for exercisers of different heights. The rear belt roller is 2.5” in diameter which makes it bigger than what most other treadmills offer in the same price range. The extra thick rollers also reduce wear and tear to the belt. Because of its Space Saver technology, the ProForm Pro 2000 can also be folded and can be transported via wheels fixed at its base. This ensures that the treadmill will not occupy extra space in your room and can be assembled and de-assembled at your will. EasyLift Assist uses hydraulic springs to open and close the treadmill effortlessly.
Coming to the more fancy part, let us take a look at the monumental number of features that the ProForm Pro 2000 offers since it is in this department that the treadmill shines the most.
A 7” inch LCD backlit display allows you to keep track of all your workout readings such as total speed, distance covered, elapsed time, number of calories burned, heart rate, and incline settings. However, if you want your workout to be more immersive then you can hook your personal tablet computer to the treadmill (on a secure display shelf made specifically for it) and use the iFit app to download customized workouts and other health tips (membership of the iFit app is sold separately). The 2017 model of the ProForm Pro 2000 has 32 built-in workout programs with varying speeds and incline settings to spice up your workout. But buying a subscription for the iFit Coach app will add a whole new dimension to your exercising since it will give you a lot of new customized workouts for you to challenge your body with. iFit members can also use a library of high-definition workout videos, create an infinite number of interactive Google Maps workouts which uses Street View and actually adjusts the settings of the treadmill in order to match that of the virtual terrain. Other benefits include personalized diet advice and wireless logging of your daily steps.
Using QuickSpeed buttons, you can directly choose between different speeds and inclines. The total speed of the Pro 2000 goes up to 12 mph, which would mean each mile takes up until 5 minutes. The incline, most importantly, ranges between -3% to 15%. This is a wonderful feature as this means that not only do you have the capacity to train on a flat surface but you can also choose to incline the surface to mimic an uphill slope as well as a downhill slope. And if you set the speed high, you can actually burn two times the calories you would normally burn on some low-ended treadmill.
Other exciting features include EKG pulse heart rate monitors on the handrails with a Bluetooth compatible chest strap, as well as 3” digitally amplified long-throw speakers that are compatible with an MP3 device and whose volume can also be adjusted digitally. ProForm have made sure that your exercising does not go without its necessary dose of entertainment.
