Looking for something more than a traditional treadmill?
Proform has recently introduced a new treadmill to their Performance treadmill series:
This is a step above the Proform Performance 600 or 400 models (which have been popular starter treadmills for years).
It’s a bit heavier on construction – with several extra premium perks.
The biggest difference?
It comes with a monster 14-inch, full-color, HD, touch-screen console:
So you can see your workout stats with a swipe of your finger – or connect to iFit Coach online and download new world trails to run.
You can also take a high-energy fitness class (with iFit Coach) right from your console display.
This is currently one of the largest treadmill consoles that Proform makes – and it can make your workouts a lot more enjoyable (kind of like having a larger TV screen – larger is always better).
The Proform 800i also has a slightly stronger motor than the 400 or 600 models. It also has a much longer 60 inch belt.
This is great for runners or taller users who want to stretch out and run. You won’t feel like you’re bumping up against the edge of the treadmill.
Take a Break with Decline
You get up to 10% incline on the new Performance 800i treadmill. But you also get up to 2% decline as well.
Decline is really great for taking a break after an intense interval session. Walking downhill is more relaxing (and can help you recover faster after intervals).
Explore Your World with iFit Coach
iFit Coach connects your treadmill to the Internet. From there you can run famous world trails – from Hawaii to the streets of Paris.
In fact, there are currently over 12,000 video workouts to choose from in the iFit library. And you can even see which workouts are the most popular with other iFit users at any one time (so you can find some hidden gems!)
The best part?
As of right now, if you get the new Proform Performance treadmill through the Manufacturer, you can currently get a Free 1 year membership to iFit coach.
So you can try it out completely free for a full year to see if you like it!
