The Proform Pro 1000 Treadmill review will not be any different. So, relax as you go through our Proform Pro 1000 Treadmill review.

As with our way of reviewing products, we highlight the pros and cons and disclose our opinion at the end. By so doing, our reader would have been able to decide if he or she should buy or not. So, here we go.

Proform Pro-1000 Treadmill is one a kind in its category in terms of features and price. This equipment is a smooth operator, what I mean by that is that it is smooth and quiet while in operation. And I believe most people wouldn’t want their neighbors to know when they have got on the machine, would they? Even your family mustn’t be disturbed simply because you are working out. Some reviewers think that Proform  Pro 1000 Treadmill is so good that it can’t be compared to any of it contemporary. Anyways, that’s their opinion; let’s find out more firsthand what makes this machine tick.

Ordinarily, there are basic things I look at in treadmills to would help me decide if they are cool or not. These are the motor, cushion system, tread belt, frame, plus other features that would guarantee excitement and motivation while working out. All of these will help you towards achieving your fitness goals and even more.  So, let’s go there, let’s find out its components, shall we? Great!

Motor– This has a CHP Mech Z (continuous duty rated horsepower) motor model usually for commercial; it is considered the most durable and finest among the models. And this has 3.0 CHP capacity and 0 to 12 mph speed.  The Nordic Track T 6.5 S Treadmill I reviewed of recently has the same kind of motor model but has a maximum speed of 10 mph. obviously; Proform Pro 1000 treadmill is higher than the Nordic Track, only that the price differs.

Cushion System–  ProxShox Cushioning is integrated into this equipment and the idea is to provide maximum comfort for users. The deck is cushioned such that will be a relief to your ankles, knees, feet, and hips. The stress will almost be nonexistent because of the ProxShox Cushioning. Walk, jog and running will be less stressful which will guarantee longer session on the machine and faster recovery.

Tread Belt– The dimension of the tread belt is about 20’’ width by 60’’ length which means could be great for runners as well. The minimum tread belt size recommended for runners is 20’’ width by 55’’ length, so this one is well over that. So, this means you will not only get to run but have enough room for yourself, your elbows and strides too.  The manufacturer claims to have tested the belt for like one million cycles at two times the user’s weight before release.

Frame– The frame is made up of steel that explains why a lifetime warranty covers it.

Let’s have a look at the other features and pros.


  • Space Saver– Some people always have issues with space or accommodation. Often times they don’t know how or where to store their gym equipment but Proform Pro 1000 Treadmill is different because it is foldable. So, you might as well store it under your bed or lean up against the wall. And the manufacturer also included a powerful shock that will help you lift the deck with an easy push.
  • iFit Enabled– The equipment is iFit enabled that you can download a Google MapsProform Pro 1000 Treadmill Review route or even customize your own. And one good thing about this is that it is automatically programmed to adjust the incline in order to simulate the terrain.
  • 22 Workout Apps– There are 22 workout apps integrated into this machine. That is to say, once you are ready to get started there are professional training programs to choose from and readily available to be used. Simply workout and challenge yourself by intensive workout targeted on your goals.
  • 0-12 MPH– Like I mentioned in my intro, this machine is capable of going from 0 to 12 mph. And more importantly, is important to note that it cannot only get to that speed but can equally handle it because of the 3.0 CHP motor and big flywheel gear ratio.
  • In-Home Efficiency Power Booster– This means you can run and or use this equipment every day without using up excessive amounts of electricity.
  • Quick Speed Button– This function allows you to adjust your intensity instantly without interrupting your focus in your workout and your goal.
  • EKG Heart Rate Monitor– How about the real-time heart rate monitor. These are the handProform Pro 1000 Treadmill Review grip sensors conveniently built-in to the handlebars.
  • 6’’ Backlit Display– It has a 6 inches backlit display console where your workout statistics will record and show at all times. The idea is to always see stats such as mileage, speed, heart rate, calorie burn, and time add up. What do these do? These stats help to show you how you are progressing with your workout and goal.
  • Warranty– There is a lifetime warranty on the frame and motor, 3-year parts warranty and 1-year labor warranty.

Now, from everything said about the Proform Pro 1000 Treadmill it looks like a good equipment to have at home because it represents everything from comfort to achieving your fitness goal.  But let’s see if there is any downside to it.


  • After much searching and researching, I discovered that some people complained about their customer service as not very impressive. Each time their customer service was contacted about a problem with their equipment they always promise to get back to them which they never did, which frustrates them the more.

My Thoughts

Proform Pro 1000 Treadmill is in no doubt a wonderful piece of equipment. All the other reviews agreed to that. It has way more pros than cons obviously, and then what would I say? I guess if you think their customer service issue is a concern to you then try to find a seller on Amazon with good customer service approval rating.

  1. This is interesting because I have been thinking about getting a treadmill for a long time but was put off because of the space! I love walking, but have had IBS for the last year and a half which makes walking very difficult. We live on a hill and I get very sick while walking uphill and down hill. Sometimes I get so exhausted that I have to ring my mum to bring the car down to get me!!!!
    A treadmill like to would help me so much to get my fitness back up! Plus it has the added bonus of being foldable so it would not fill up the space in our tiny house. Thank you for this review, I might talk to my parents about getting one!

    1. Hello, Emma, from what you just narrated, you sure need to get back to fitness and I believe Proform Pro 1000 treadmill will be a good place to start. The adjustable incline will also help you to get back in shape as that will increase the intensity of your workout.

  2. I always wanted to exercise indoors and was looking forward to buy some equipment. You have a great review of this product making it easier for us to decide if this product is right for us or not. I liked that the cons were covered too. Thank you for your review. I have bookmarked this page and will come back.

  3. What exactly is ProShox Cushioning? How does this compare to other similar treadmills? I have issues with bad knees and am very selective about the type of treadmills that I use.

    1. Hi Nicole, Just as explained in the post above, ProShox Cushioning is a system designed and built-in onto the machine to have a cushioning effect on your Knees, ankles, feet, and hips so that there would be no less stress in those areas during a workout.

  4. Thanks for the detailed review. This treadmill seems like a great value. Lots of features and I like that is is compact. Who wants a huge piece of equipment taking up the whole room?

  5. The Proform Pro 1000 Treadmill sounds like a winner. I am still on the fence about a treadmill or exercise bike. I like that the treadmill folds up where as I don’t have a lot of space. The review was helpful. Thanks

    1. Thanks, Dave, I hope you will get off that fence soon and decide on which one to go for. However, it all depends on your budget.

  6. I am shopping around for something that I can exercise with at home. I used to have an elliptical machine but we had to get rid of it when we moved- it was so heavy!
    This proform pro 1000 sounds great as it’s fold-able and has all the functions I am looking for. How easy is it to fold though? Are there many steps in folding it?

    1. Hello Dinh, So glad you found this post and the product interesting. And yes, folding it does not require any special talent or some sort of assistance. What I am trying to say is that it is pretty easy to fold.

  7. Many thanks for your great review. I am currently on the look out for an appropriate treadmill for my house. Two things tick the right boxes for me regarding the Proform Pro 1000 Treadmill. First, I like the fact that it can be folded down and stored under a bed – big plus for me, that. Second, I like to do bursts of sprinting on my treadmill, so that fact that you can achieve 12mph on this one is ideal. Kudos for such a thorough review.
