ProForm Power 995 i Treadmill Features

ProForm Power 995 Treadmill Console

20″x 60″ Treadbelt — Treadmills below $1,500 usually have treadbelts around 54″ in length.  They are adequate for walkers and joggers of average height.  At a length of 60″, you have a machine that can better accommodate runners, individuals with long strides, and taller users.

iFit Live — iFit Live is one of the  main attractions for ProForm products.  It is a fitness tracking system that allows you to run on virtual courses all over the globe, customize your own fitness program, receive automatic workout downloads, and even get virtual tips from Jillian Michaels.

GoogleMaps can sync with your machine to simulate the real life terrain of your chosen course. The treadmill will adjust incline levels to help provide an authentic experience.

The only problem we see with iFit Live is the price.  Most ProForm and NordicTrack machines are low priced and provide high specs.  Still, the iFit Live requires an additional subscription cost.  Some competition machines (with a higher starting cost we might add) have free fitness tracking apps associated with their  treadmills.  So you can figure that the price evens out in the end.  Or, if you don’t plan to use the iFit Live, then you can enjoy a great machine at a lower cost than you’d otherwise expect.

3.0 Continuous Duty HP Motor — This motor will be able to accommodate walkers and joggers.  It comes with a lifetime warranty.

Speakers with iPod/MP3 Input —  These speakers are not going to match your home entertainment system, but they do a decent job.  You will find that ProForm has better quality speakers than most other fitness equipment manufacturers.

30 Workout Programs — The ProForm Power 995 i has a generous selection of workout programs. They include speed, endurance, weight loss, and calorie burn workouts. It is a good idea to change your workouts regularly to enhance results and to keep yourself motivated.

Warranty — They upgraded the warranty with 3-years parts coverage.  This machine also comes with a lifetime warranty on the motor and frame, and 1-year labor.

ProForm Power 995 i Recommendation

The ProForm 995 i is a great machine even with some heavy competition in its pricing category.  We feel confident in recommending it as a Best Buy option in the budget category.  It has a long workout surface, large 2.5″ rollers, plenty of exercise programs, and iFit technology. Overall, we like this machine a lot and give it our ‘thumbs up!’

      Hi Richard,
      Thanks for your question regarding the Proform 9995i. For the money and features offered, you will not find anything else on the market right now that will “out spec” the 995i. It should work well for you.

    Thanks for the reply, will the 3.0 CHP motor have enough power and durability to handle jogging and short sprints of higher speeds like 6-8 mph at minute by minute intervals?

      Hi Richard,

      In the less than $1,000 pricing category manufacturers have to sacrifice some components in order to stay in that budget category. For example, the Sole F80 which is known strictly as a “runners” treadmill has a motor of 3.5 HP. The NordicTrack commercial 1750 has a 3.8 HP. Of course horse power isn’t everything as gearing is equally important.

      With that said, the Proform 995i isn’t designed primarily as a running treadmill but more for walking and jogging. So if you plan to do sprints or high intensity training, this machine probably isn’t going to be nearly as smooth in going up to the higher speeds. Sure it will get the job done, but you may be disappointed in the performance in comparison to others.

    I’m debating between the Proform Power 995i and the Sole F63. They seems to have similar specs and price. Any recommendations? Or is there another model under $1,000 you like. Will use mostly for running and on a budget. Thanks !

      Hi Cary,

      Thanks for your question concerning the Proform 995i. We did rate the 995i on our “best buy” in this pricing category.

      When comparing the Proform 995i to the Sole F63 Treadmill, Sole is known for producing durable machines. In fact, some major hotel chains such as Hilton use Sole Treadmills in their fitness centers which speak of the durability.

      However, in the less than $1,000 pricing category….if you are looking for more electronic distractions the Proform 995i is going to be a tough competitor. It’s IFit live compatible plus has a handy Ipad screen holder.

      If electronic distractions aren’t that important to you, the Sole F63 will definitely do the job and I prefer the location of the speed/incline buttons on the side rails of the Sole F63 versus the console placement on the Proform. With that said, Sole does offer blue tooth capability and the console is more than adequate.

      Good luck, let me know if you have additional questions.

    We have a Sears Pro-Form Crosswalk 370e purchased in 2006 with a Master Protection Agreement. Through the years it has been serviced and repaired according to the Agreement.

    Now, one of the arms has broke and a replacement part is no longer available.

    We would like to get another treadmill as close as we can to the one we have to replace.

    We have been offered (in writing) up to $800 for a replacement from Sears.

    How might we best go about getting as close to the same model from either Sears or Nordic Track with a Master Protection Agreement going forward.
