Conclusions

The thing about the ProForm Power series is that it represents an upgraded version of starter models. The 1080 is the improved version of 995, bringing forward more stability and a more solid construction. We recommend this good value treadmill when it doesn’t exceed $1,500. Luckily, it presently sells for $1,300, so you may have a chance to buy it at a good price.

Pros

This treadmill best suits runners and heavier users. The motor is strong and well-built, it’s decently priced for a continuous duty motor and may we add, it definitely powers the belt that is above average.

You don’t have to worry about the cash you’ll be taking out of your pocket for maintenance. The warranty is good.

The touch screen display is large enough to make feedback reading comfortable. The display is divided into several displays and you can change settings by swiping your finger and nothing more. This is the kind of display that makes our workouts easier and stress-free.

The cushioning system provides comfort and keeps us away from any injury. It’s amazing how this treadmill keeps our bodies brand new even after exhausting programs.

Workouts are customizable and can really enhance your training. Set-a-Goal workouts allow you to customize the program so that it meets your fitness goals. You can listen to music with the quality speakers which include iPod compatibility.

It’s extremely easy to fold the treadmill and to back this all up, the warranty is quite satisfactory, given this machine that basically can do everything.

Main Perks

Having iFit Live with Google Maps included is a straight way to intense, customized, audio coached workouts. We can run wherever we choose to run and secondly, we have the option to begin workouts tailored to our fitness goals. If you’re the race kind of runner, this treadmill will provide you with races through built-in routes.

And while you’re running, you get to see how your competitors are doing and what their strategies are. But you need a laptop for that, and it doesn’t come with the treadmill. Which leads us to Disadvantages section.

Disadvantages

You need a wireless connection for iFit Live and you need a laptop if you want to see how your competitors are doing during races.

Overall, we highly recommend this quality treadmill that combines functionality with an affordable price.
