Pro Form Treadmills - Quality at a Cheap Price

The Pro Form treadmills are one of the most renowned brands of  treadmills. The best features of these treadmills are that the machines are of good quality and not very expensive. The price range varies between 500 to 1500 dollars. The Pro Form brand is owned by the world’s largest manufacturer of treadmills, Icon Health and Fitness

Not aimed at the advanced user or the professional athlete, Pro Form treadmills are targeted purely at the beginners. Beginners do not use their treadmills very roughly and that is the reason these treadmills are meant for them.

Incidentally, the company Icon was a pioneer of the space saver technology that allows the user to fold and store the treadmill when not in use. Although a number of companies have imitated this feature, Icon has made it one of the salient features of the brand Pro Form.

Pro Form has definitely been able to carve out a niche for itself in the market. It is a good and inexpensive treadmill meant for runners that are looking for breaking in their feet. It is certainly not meant for advanced treadmill users, professional athletes or commercial use. The treadmill is not meant for rough use and is meant for light and sensible use at home.

It is perhaps considering the purpose and the targeted segment that the company has made the treadmill available at a very inexpensive price. The warranty on the treadmill is just 9 days. It is not a very confidence inspiring number. There are treadmills that offer 5-year warranties. However, treadmills with 5-year warranties are not very inexpensive.

If you are looking for an inexpensive treadmill to use at home, then you can consider the Pro Form range of treadmills. However if you are an advanced user or an owner of a gym, then this treadmill is not what you are looking for.
