ProForm 11.5 Competitor
Treadmill Review


This model includes the innovative "Competition Training Center". The ProForm 11.5 Competitor treadmill allows you to race head to head against a variety of virtual competitors to help stay motivated while experiencing the thrill of victory.

The main differences between this model and the sister model, the 9.0 Competitor is that this model benefits from a larger motor at 3.0 HP (compared with a 2.5HP unit on the 9.0), 24 Personal trainer workouts, the Pro Tech plus cushioning system and Easy Shock drop assisted folding mechanism.

This treadmill is very comfortable to run on due to the ProTech 5 adjustable cushioning, which results in less stress on ankles, knees and hips. This model is a real winner in this area.

Take advantage of 0-10 mph QuickSpeed buttons, one touch Power Incline from 0 - 12 %, and EKG Grip Pulse technology which allows you to stay in your target heart-rate range by glancing at the console window during your fitness workout.

The treadmill is covered by a Lifetime warranty on the frame and motor.

Here are the main features:

… drive motor

A powerful 2.5 HP motor is used to power the unit. With more power than a regular drive system, the Commercial Grade Mach Z Motor allows you to exercise for longer periods of time while maintaining smooth, consistent operation.

… tread belt

The treadmill incorporates a 20" wide running belt. Other treadmills in this price range usually have narrower belts - you will appreciate the advantages of this larger running space when you come to use the treadmill.

… deck cushioning

The ProTech Plus cushioning system employed on this model reduces impact on your joints. With this superior absorption system, you can enjoy the perfect combination of comfort and joint protection.

… speed control

The treadmill is equipped with "QuickSpeed" control. This means that you can easily jump to any speed with one touch throughout your workout. Decrease your speed immediately when you need a break, or increase it instantly for a challenging burst.

... workout programs

This model benefits from a total of 24 built-in personal trainer workouts.

These programs automatically change the speed and incline of the treadmill throughout the workout and center around either performance, aerobic or weight loss goals. These showcase everything this treadmill is capable of and allow you achieve your full fitness potential.

... easy to read display

The control console is equipped with a "Grafixx" display which shows your workout data clearly in a bold and easy to read format. You can display distance, elapsed time, and calories burned in numbers almost 1" high.

It will also display your heart rate or show an animated figure which walks, jogs or runs with you! The display also tracks your speed, time, distance, pace, pulse and calories burned. Additionally all calendar and statistical information provided by the iFIT Fitness Journal can be shown.

… incline control

The treadmill incorporates a "Quick Incline" control . This feature allows you to electronically change the degree of slope up or down with a single touch of a button instead having to scroll through options. Simulate running uphill and add both challenge and variety to your exercise session.

… heart rate monitor

A dual-grip EKG heart rate monitor is employed on this model. The built-in precision sensors allow you to quickly and accurately monitor your heart rate. Simply grip the built-in sensors to obtain an instantaneous reading of your heart rate - stay within your optimum training zone and burn more fat.

... user weight

The running deck on this model has a 300 lb. weight-capacity which should be suitable for the majority of users.

... folding design

This treadmill has soft drop folding. This is in essence a gas shock-assist "soft drop" feature that makes folding the machine away after use a breeze. The facility allows you to fold and unfold the treadmill by gently tilting the deck. The treadmill can then be gently dropped back when it is time for use.

… warranty details

The ProForm 11.5 Competitor treadmill is underwritten by a lifetime warranty on the frame together with a lifetime warranty on the motor.
