Powered by a 2.25 CHP commercial motor the ProForm i Series 785E treadmill features 16 Built-in iFIT workout programs.

Designed by a certified personal trainer, each of these 16 iFIT workouts automatically adjust the incline and speed of your treadmill, while specifically focusing on an aerobic, weight loss or performance goals.

The treadmill also features a universal iPOD connection with built-in speakers enabling you to workout as you play your favorite music through 2 high quality speakers.

The product is covered by a lifetime frame and motor warranty.

Here are the main features:

… drive motor

A powerful 2.25 CHP motor is used to drive the treadmill. The commercial grade Mach Z motor allows you to exercise for longer periods of time while maintaining smooth, consistent operation.

… shock absorption

The “ProStride” impact reducing cushioning absorption system employed on this model allows you to customize the feel of the running surface to your own personal preference. The superior cushioning allows the user to exercise for longer.

… iPOD connection

A universal iPOD connection can be found on the control console. This lets you enjoy your workout while you play your favorite music through the built-in Intermix Acoustics 2.0 sound system. Simply plug in, press play and listen to your favorite sounds while you exercise.

… speed adjustment

A system called “QuickSpeed” is used to control 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.

… workout programs

Fitness training with a treadmill can be made more interesting by having a good variety of workout programs. This model has a total of 16 built-in iFIT workouts. These showcase everything this treadmill is capable of and allow you achieve your full fitness potential.

… incline adjustment

The “Power Incline” system is used to adjust the angle of the running deck. The user is able to simulate running uphill and add both challenge and variety to their exercise session.

… workout card technology

This model uses iFIT Workout Card technology. Each card is designed by a certified personal trainer and plugs directly into the treadmill’s console, automatically adjusting your speed and incline, while the voice of a personal trainer takes you through each workout. The iFIT interactive workout card technology allows you to lose weight, feel great and improve performance.

… intensity control

An interesting feature is the “Workout Intensity Control”. This system allows you to add or reduce the intensity of your workout. Simply raise or lower your workout intensity and the program will automatically adjust to your desired performance level.

… heart rate monitor

A dual-grip EKG heart rate monitor is available to check your 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 cooling fan

Exercising on the treadmill can be very rewarding but can result in you feeling very hot and “sticky”. This treadmill has an efficient “CoolAire” workout fan incorporated into the console. With a touch of a button and you can have low or high speed fans to keep you cool during even the most intensive workout.

… user weight

This treadmill has a running deck with a 325 lb. user weight-capacity. It is important when choosing a treadmill that this weight capacity is not exceeded, but this durable and resilient deck should accommodate most users.

... folding frame

This is a folding treadmill incorporating a “soft drop” folding mechanism. 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 cover

The ProForm i Series 785E treadmill is underwritten by a lifetime warranty on the motor in addition to a lifetime warranty on the frame.
