Priced at around the $2,000 mark, the ProForm Pro 7000 offers good value for money when you take into account its specs and range of features.
The Pro 7000, just like the ProForm Pro 4500, comes with a 3.80 CHP Mach Z Commerical Pro Motor, which is inline or perhaps a bit better than what you would usually find in this price range, enabling you to run up to a maximum speed of 12 mph. The ability to adjust the incline up to 15% is also quite impressive, as comparable treadmills come with a 12% incline feature. What really impresses us, though, is the ability to decline, up to 3% in fact, allowing you to work out different muscle groups.
The Pro 7000 is big on technological features, coming with a generous 36 workout apps, all designed by a Certified Personal Trainer and which automatically adjust your speed, incline and decline through your workout so you don’t have to. iFit compatibility is always a welcome feature, even though it requires a subscription, as is the 10” oversized backlit display, tracking your speed, time, distance and calories burned, all in a track-style format.
The treadbelt comes in at the right size, measuring 22 x 60 inches, allowing those who are tall and/or have long strides not to feel confined as they exercise. In fact, you tend to find treadmills in this price range coming with 20 x 60 inch treadbelts, so taller users should give preference to this model over others.
Proform treadmills are known for their cushioning system, and the Pro 7000 doesn’t disappoint with its ProShox Cushioning system, which we would say has better impact absorption than comparable models.
Other features include the usual built-in speakers, CoolAire workout fan, wireless chest strap and dual-grip EKG heart monitor, and compatible music port for iPod, although the iPad holder is a welcome addition.
The Proform Pro 7000 has a maxmimum user weight capacity of 375 lbs and is backed by a lifetime frame, motor and deck, 5-year parts and electronics and 2-year labor warranty, which is a testament to its build quality.
