ProForm Treadmill Reviews

With ProForm being one of the biggest names in treadmill design, it’s no surprise they’ve produced so many different models, from the entry level 285 T through to the top-of-the-line Boston Marathon 4.0. But because ProForm take an iterative approach to their treadmill collections, it’s easy to lose track of their bestsellers, upcoming releases, and treadmills that are now discontinued.

That’s why we’ve put together a quick guide to ProForm treadmills, which includes a summary of what you can expect from each collection, and a link to an in-depth review of each model.

Boston Marathon treadmills

  • HD Video Workouts of the actual Boston Marathon course
  • SpeedRing for direct control of the belt speed without having to reach the console (4.0)
  • Telemetry heart rate monitoring only on the 4.0 model via the Adidas® ANT+ Wireless Chest Strap (included)
  • Child-Safety passcode and safety screen as safety features
  • Only ProForm treadmills that allow you to enable and disable the impact absorption system

ZT series treadmills

  • No iFit enabled machines – only ZT8 and ZT10 are iFit compatible
  • EKG touch sensors only, no chest strap heart rate monitoring
  • Backlit LCD consoles
  • Limited entertainment options. Intermix Acoustics 2.0 with two 2-inch speakers and iPod connectivity the only option
  • Limited warranty coverage on the entry level ZT4 (5 years frame and motor). Improves with later models, but still short for parts and labor (usually no more than 1 to 2 years).

  • 415 LT is Calorie and Performance workouts, 700 LT is all-round fitness, with a separate 8-week weight loss program
