With the Carbon T7 from ProForm, we are seeing not only a new treadmill model, but a whole new way to go about purchasing your new in-home fitness equipment.
We have certainly seen how interactive technology has changed people’s views of at-home fitness. It is no longer something you have to be “alone” to do. ProForm’s iFit technology gives you access to world-class trainers, the ability to run trails all over the world and utilize an extensive video library of various workout types and difficulties.
The innovative technology that ProForm offers through iFit allows you to experience the luxury of a personal trainer, right in the comfort of your own home. Best of all, this treadmill comes at an affordable price point of LESS than $1,000.
The ProForm Carbon T7 is on sale for $999, or pay just $26/month with 0% financing for up to 39 months. 1-year iFit membership included and FREE shipping! This is a great deal.
2.6 CHP MachZ Motor — If you are looking to do anything from walking to light running, you won’t have any issues with the Carbon T7. For serious runners who like to put in a lot of miles on the daily, this may not be the treadmill for you. There are more powerful treadmills out there to handle that kind of use, but the price tag will certainly reflect that.
0-10 MPH Speed — This is exactly what we expect to see on a mid-level treadmill. You’ll be able to do HIIT and sprint workouts to your heart’s content. A
0-10% Incline — The Carbon T7 offers a 10% incline which means there are definitely some hill workouts in your future. This is a great feature to have with this machine. Your iFit membership will be taking you on those ups and downs through amazing scenery around the globe during your virtual workouts.
20” x 55” Tread Belt — The size of the tread belt on the Carbon T7 is a little more compact than we are seeing on other models, but should still do the trick for most users. This is really only going to be an issue for taller users or those with a longer stride.
Folding Capacity — On the flip side, this is where being compact is a plus. The Carbon T7 folds for easy storage and its compact size makes it easier to stash away. This is a huge bonus if you reside in a shared living space or a smaller home.
Being able to fold up and put away the Carbon T7 is also great for anyone with children at home. This keeps them from potentially hurting themselves playing with a machine that has to be left out.
7″ Smart HD Touchscreen — Obviously the Carbon T7 is going to feature an HD Touchscreen considering it’s made to be used with iFit. While 7” isn’t the largest screen out there, it will still allow you really experience all that iFit has to offer.
It’s also worth noting that larger HD screens are a factor that really drives up the price of a machine. If you’re wanting a giant HD Touchscreen, you’re going to pay a pretty penny for it.
ISO Flex Cushioning — The ProShox Cushioning system is one that we are familiar with from other ProForm machines. This system relieves stress and impact on your joints when your foot strikes the deck. This means that you will feel more comfortable when you exercise, allowing you to work out longer.
Warranty — ProForm offers a 10-year frame, 2-year parts and 1-year labor warranty on the Carbon T7.
iFit — Now that we’ve covered the treadmill itself, we’ll take a closer look at the technology you’re getting…
Streaming Global and Studio Classes —Choose a new locale for each and every one of your classes. You can run trails and street routes in countries around the globe, or join a studio class for a more personal feel. Both of these options are led by iFit’s world-renowned trainers that will push you to be your best self every day.
Interactive Training Sessions — You may be wondering what exactly is interactive about watching some else on a screen. The interaction is between you, the trainer and your machine. When you join an interactive session, all you have to do is focus on reaching your goals. The machine will automatically change its speed and incline based on what the trainer is doing, without you having to lift a finger.
Fitness Tracking— iFit automatically records the results from each of your sessions and monitors your progress. On top of that, iFit will recommend workouts that get more difficult as your ability grows. This keeps you from plateauing and ensures that you continue pushing yourself and seeing personal progress.
Video Library — You don’t have to be in a live session to take advantage of iFit. There is an extensive video library of workouts you can do on and off your treadmill to get a wide variety of workout routines.
One of the most impressive things about choosing a treadmill from the brands ProForm or NordicTrack, is their technology features. iFit is a great way to keep your workout routine fresh and exciting – all while maintaining your health through cardiovascular exercise.
Most of the time when we see a machine with features like this, we expect a high price tag to match, but this is not the case with the Carbon T7. You get a decent motor, 7″ HD Touchscreen, 0-10 MPH Speed, 0-10% Incline, and folding capabilities, all for right at less than $1,000. This is a great deal for an at-home treadmill!
