ProForm Power 995i  Review

Construction

The Power 995i 3 CHP commercial grade motor is a plus for anyone intending to put this treadmill into some substantial use. It’s tough, it’s rugged and best of all constructed to meet high work out demands in addition to having a lifetime warranty.

The ProShox Cushioning throughout the wide 20×60-inch deck guarantees a comfortable workout routine of your choice by neutralizing the negative impact of a hard landing, thereby protecting your feet and joints. Therefore, for as long as you are 350 pounds or less, whether you are on an intensive of light workout schedule, there is not much to be concerned about.

Quite a remarkable feature that this unit boasts of is its SpaceSaver design.

This feature allows you to fold it away nice and fast with a simple push, thanks to the powerful shocks specifically designed for this purpose. With a treadmill this big and long the inconvenience of a cluttered workspace will be no more.

Workout Detail

Perhaps the best feature of the ProForm 995i is its ability to replicate any terrain in any part of the world by automatically adjusting the inclines within a 0-15% range.

With the help of Google maps, you can create any track route like the one used by Kenya's track legends Kipchoge Keino or Ethiopia's Kenisa Bekele. Workouts become a lot of fun with so many options to choose from.

Add resistance to your everyday workout, burn more calories, and increase your muscles mass with incline training. With this feature, you can choose to push yourself to the limit by choosing a more demanding uphill route or go relax mode by training on a near flat deck.

The handle bars come equipped with two hand grip sensors which help you monitor your heart rate. With this heart rate monitor, you can tell whether your preferred workout is too intense for you and if you need to slow down.

Never mind about getting all sticky with your our sweat during workouts, thanks to CoolAire fans which makes climate control possible.

\Workouts become much more fun when you don't have to worry about the freezing temperatures or the sweltering sun outside. Another comfort feature is the incorporation of an iPod compatible in-built sound system. The soothing power of music is known to have a calming effect and further helps with concentration.

ProForm 995 comes fully loaded with 30 professional training programs, which gives you a varied workout to match your every need. You are your own master, customize your challenge to suit your goals.

Pros

A quick glance at the features above and you realize that ProForm’s 995i is a game changer. It's well built, solid, and durable and the ProShox feature greatly absorbs the impact and shortens recovery time. With a large 7″ display you get all the information you need at a glance; from your speed, time, distance travelled and calories burnt.

A 3.0 CHP Mach Z motor responds swiftly to whichever training preference you adopt, which is a plus when it comes to endurance training. Its best feature of course is the 30 Workout Apps; 20 calorie burning workouts and 10 workout routes.

Cons

At $1000, the ProForm 995i doesn't come cheap and you would also expect it to come with additional accessories such as digital wrist console, with which you can easily monitor your heart rate and other information without grabbing the handles every time.

Its assembly is not that simple either since the manual excludes some steps making it a difficult process especially when some parts unlabel.

Accessories

  • CoolAire™ fan
  • iPod compatible audio jack
  • 2’’ digitally amplified long-throw speakers with digital volume control
  • 2.5-inch rollers that reduce tension and ultimately wear and tear.

Shipping/Handling

Shipping costs will vary depending on your purchase site and shipping destination. However, Amazon and eBay offers free shipping.
