ProForm 990X Treadmill Review

The ProForm 990X treadmill with a motivational race track and heart rate monitor.

Driven by a powerful 2.5 CHP motor, and utilizing commercial grade components the ProForm 990X treadmill is packed with the latest ideas in fitness technology.

The treadmill is very comfortable to run on due to the “ProStride” impact reducing cushioning, which results in less stress on ankles, knees and hips. The Perspective ES is a real winner in this area.

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

The treadmill comes with a 12 year motor warranty.

The main features are listed below:

Drive motor

A 2.5 CHP motor is used to drive the treadmill. 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 makers claim that the “ProStride” impact reducing cushioning absorption system employed on this equipment reduces impact on your joints by up to 15% as compared to running on the road. With this superior absorption system, you can enjoy the perfect combination of comfort and joint protection.

Quick select controls

This model is equipped with QuickSelect technology. With this feature you can easily select your speed, incline or preprogrammed workout with a single-touch of a button.

This facility allows you to 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 has 10 built-in “Personal trainer”, 2 “Heart rate”, and 2 “Learn” workouts. These showcase everything this treadmill is capable of and allow you achieve your full fitness potential.

Power incline

A “Power Incline” control is used to vary incline. 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

Built-in precision sensors allow you to quickly and accurately monitor your heart rate. The EKG Grip Pulse technology allow you to quickly and accurately monitor your heart rate, stay within your optimum training zone and burn more fat.

Workout cooling fan

Vigorous exercise can lead to you to feeling “sticky” and uncomfortable. This model has a “CoolAire” Fan to help cool things down. This console mounted fan means that you can enjoy a cool refreshing breeze and stay cool and comfortable during the most vigorous workout.

Folding design

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. The mechanism is assisted by a pair of powerful air-shocks so that you can fold the machine up with minimum effort.

User weight

With a 300 lb. weight-capacity the deck on this treadmill will accommodate most users and provide a stable and resilient platform for the tread belt

Warranty details

The Perspective ES treadmill is underwritten by a 12-year warranty on the motor and 90-day parts and labor warranty.
