Watch Your Power Output on the Console
The ProForm Sport 7.5 takes the features of the (discontinued) Sport 7.0 one step further. It includes an enhanced console with a Round Watts LED display, iFit BlueTooth Smart capability, and a Space Saver folding design. The extra long 60″ running surface is perfect for taller individuals who feel cramped on the more typical 55″ deck length.
The ProForm Sport 7.5 is offered by Icon, which is the same company that produces NordicTrack and LifeSpan. All of these machines offer the iFit technology which helps you spice up your daily running routine.
It should be noted that the previous version of this model (ProForm 7.0) was rated a “Best Buy” by a prominent consumer magazine. They gave it an “Excellent” for ergonomics and “Very Good” for construction, ease of use and exercise range. Very impressive for a budget treadmill.

20″x 60″ Treadbelt — Just like the Sport 7.0 model, this machine features a lengthy 60″ deck that is great for taller individuals.
Round Watts LED Display – Have you ever wondered if your workout was worth the effort? The Round Watts LED Display allows you to see in real time your power output while you run. It will show if you are in the Endurance, Tempo, or Peak zone. If you want to focus on interval training, hit the Work button to kick it into high gear and then press the Recover button to slow down.
SpaceSaver Design- This treadmill folds up for easy storage. It has EasyLift Assist so you won’t break your back trying to raise the running deck.
iFit Bluetooth Smart Enabled — Have you ever wondered what it would be like to run through the streets of Rome? This technology allows you to download a Google Maps route or create your own. The deck of the treadmill will raise and lower automatically to match the real-life terrain. You can manage your iFit account online to track your progress towards fitness goals. The only disadvantage to iFit is that it does require an additional cost for a monthly subscription. Some of the competitor brands offer similar workout tracking programs at no cost.
Integrated Tablet Holder – This device shelf provides a safe and secure place to rest your tablet while you work out.
ProShox Cushioning – Cushioning is preset throughout the deck area to protect your joints while you work out. ProForm states that a comfortable run is their “No. 1 goal.”
2.75 Continuous Duty HP Motor — This motor comes with a lifetime warranty. If you are looking for a more powerful motor, check out the ProForm Sport 9.0 or 12.0 ST models.
Speakers with iPod/MP3 Input — ProForm has some of the best sound systems built into fitness equipment. It won’t match your home entertainment system, but it’s pretty good!
24 Workout Programs — The ProForm Sport 7.5 has 24 preset workout programs designed by certified professional instructors. These workouts help relieve some of the monotony common with treadmill workouts.
Warranty — The Sport 7.5 comes with a lifetime frame and motor, 2 years parts, and 1 year labor.
The enhanced console on the Sport 7.5 is a nice addition, but it does add to the price over the Sport 7.0 model. Look at them both and decide which one fits your wish-list better. The best thing about these machines is that they BOTH feature that extra long 60″ running surface. Plus, you can enjoy the benefits of the iFit Live technology. Check out the other treadmills in the ProForm Sport series. Each one offers slightly increased features at various pricing.
