ProForm Sport 9.0 S Treadmill Features

20″x 60″ Treadbelt — Just like other Sport models, this machine features a fantastic 60″ deck that is perfect for taller individuals.

2.5″ Rollers – This is another area that the Sport 9.0 S excels over the other Sport models.  It has larger 2.5″ rollers that reduce the wear and tear on the treadbelt.

7″ Backlit Display – The workout stats are displayed directly in front of you so you can easily see your progress.  You can watch your mileage, speed, calorie burn, time, and heart rate.

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.

CoolAire Workout Fan – This fan comes with two speed settings, so it does a nice job of keeping you cool during your run.

iFit Enabled — Have you ever wondered what it would be like to run through the streets of London?  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 problem with iFit is that it does require an additional cost for a monthly subscription. Some of the competitor brands offer similar workout tracking programs for free.

Integrated Tablet Holder – This device shelf provides a safe and secure place to rest your tablet while you work out.

0-15% Incline – This machine is great if you like doing hill work.  Incline on your treadmill can help you vary your workout and exercise those glute muscles!

ProShox Cushioning – ProForm states that a comfortable run is their “No. 1 goal.” Cushioning is preset throughout the deck area to protect your joints while you work out.

3.0 Continuous Duty HP Motor — This is the largest motor you will find at this price range.  It will easily handle the strains of running or the stress of steep incline training.  There is a reason that it comes with a lifetime warranty – there are rarely any service issues.

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!

30 Workout Programs — The ProForm Sport 9.0 S has 30 preset workout programs designed by certified professional instructors.  These workouts help relieve some of the monotony common with treadmill workouts.

Warranty — The Sport 9.0 S comes with a lifetime frame and motor, 3 years parts, and 1 year labor.  Learn why a warranty is important here.
