 Specs

The ProForm Pro 2000 in-home treadmill is a favorite among walkers and runners alike. The roomy track is 60” long by 22” wide and can fit just about anyone. The 2.5” (diameter) rear belt rollers are larger than lower-end treadmills and help to reduce wear and tear on the track. The track has electronic incline options from -3% to 15% to mimic outdoor running terrains and help you train different muscles throughout your workout. The high capacity motor that powers the ProForm Pro 2000 — a 3.5 CHP commercial motor that comes with a lifetime warranty — isn’t common on many other treadmills in this price range.

The ProForm Pro 2000’s workout screen is back-lit for easy reading and shows your mileage, speed, estimated calorie burn, heart rate, and time spent exercising all at once. If you own your own tablet that runs the iFit Coach app, you can easily create an engaging workout display that is completely personalized. The ProForm Pro 2000 treadmill console also has 3″ speakers that can connect to your smartphone or MP3 device and a ledge to hold a tablet computer.

Get a new workout routine every day or have a professionally designed health and wellness created based on your fitness goals.

When you are done with your workout, the ProForm Pro 2000 can be folded to free up floor space. Shock assist technology makes it easy to push the treadmill into a vertical position so you can store it away.
