Proform 5.5 CrossTrainer Treadmill Review

The ProForm 5.5 CrossTrainer Treadmill featuring AirTech cushioning and iFIT challenge training center.



If you’re looking for a simple way to lose weight while adding muscle tone to your body, the ProForm 5.5 CrossTrainer is the machine for you.

This treadmill allows you to sculpt and tone your body using circuit-style, training workouts. This innovative treadmill offers varied cross-training workouts designed by a certified personal trainer.

The main differences between this and the sister model (ProForm 5.0 CrossTrainer) is in the provision of a larger motor and wider tread belt.

This ground breaking technology incorporates 4 Interactive Cross Training workouts. These combine muscle-sculpting exercises with a fantastic cardio workout giving you more results in less time. Each workout allows you to easily burn calories while adding muscle mass.

The equipment is very comfortable to run on due to the AirTech Impact-Reducing Cushioning, which results in less stress on ankles, knees and hips. The ProForm 5.5 crosstrainer performs very well in this area.

Take advantage of 0-10 mph QuickSpeed buttons, one touch Power Incline, and Dual-Grip EKG Heart Rate Monitor which allows you to stay in your target heart-rate range with a quick glance at the console window during your fitness workout.

The main features are listed below:
… drive motor

The equipment is powered by a 2.25 CHP motor. 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.
… shock absorption

The “AirTech” impact-reducing cushioning absorption system employed on this equipment dramatically reduces the effect of impact on your joints. With this superior absorption system, you can enjoy the perfect combination of comfort and joint protection.
… cross training workouts

The iFIT Challenge Training Center is a prominent feature of this treadmill. The equipment runs you through a built-in fitness assessment and then creates customized workout plans based on your results.

There are 3 separate healthy eating guides – 1400, 1800 and 2200 calories – allowing you to use the one that best fits your needs.

You will have a plenty of choice of programs with a total of 24 Interactive Cross Training Workouts, which combine a variety of strength training exercises with fantastic, cardio workouts.
… speed control

“QuickSpeed” control is used to alter speed.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.
… console display

The control console features a “Grafixx” display. This allows you to see your preferred workout information, such as calories, distance or elapsed time, at nearly 1″ tall.

This console can also visually display your heart beat or an animated figure walking, jogging or running through your workout with you. The Grafixx display also displays all training information for the iFIT Monthly Challenge.
… power incline

The equipment incorporates a “Power Incline” control . This feature allows you to electronically change the degree of slope up or down throughout your workout from the control panel. Simulate running uphill and add both challenge and variety to your exercise session.
… heart rate monitor

EKG Grip Pulse technology is used to monitor heart rate. The built-in precision sensors allow you to quickly and accurately monitor your heart rate. Simply grip the built-in sensors to quickly and accurately monitor your heart rate, stay within your optimum training zone and burn more fat.
... workout fan

A “CoolAire” fan is mounted in the control console. This feature means that you can enjoy a cool refreshing breeze and stay cool and comfortable during the most vigorous workout.
foldaway design

The ProForm 5.5 Cross Trainer has been designed with “space saver” technology. This facility allows you to fold the treadmill into an upright position after your workout where it will then occupy a lot smaller floor area.
… user weight

This equipment has been designed with an upper weight limit of 300 lbs which should make it suitable for most users.
