Large Running Surface and 7″ Full Color Touchscreen
The ProForm PRO 5000 treadmill is built by Icon Fitness, which also builds NordicTrack treadmills. It has many attractive features, including a 22×60″ treadbelt, 4.0 CHP motor, and 7″ full color touchscreen. Its younger brother is the ProForm PRO 2000, which has won “Best Buy Awards.”
The PRO 2000 model has a smaller motor, two fewer workout apps, no touchscreen, and will save you about $1,000. Both machines come from parent company Icon Fitness, which is well known for producing high spec machines at a lower price than the competition.

Many of our ProForm and NordicTrack reviews can become repetitive because many of the machines have similar components and features. The overall theme is that these brands usually offer some of the best value for your money. When comparing this model to the ProForm PRO 2000 model, you will be paying about $1000 more mostly for the iFit Enabled feature, stronger motor, touchscreen, and two more workout program options. You can decide if these items are worth the money. Personally, I think I’d be perfectly happy with the PRO 2000 and the extra $1000 in my pocket.
