ProForm Performance 400c is an entry level treadmill bristling with high tech features.



ProForm Performance 400c Treadmill


There are many entry-level treadmills on the market, but although being a budget-priced model, the ProForm Performance 400c nevertheless bristles with innovative, high-tech features.


This is a “space-saver” treadmill, which means that it can be folded up after use and is powered by a 2.5 CHP motor. The shock absorption is taken care of by the “ProShox” cushioning system, which responds evenly to your stride in order to give a comfortable workout.


There are 18 workout programs to choose from, comprising 5 Calorie-burn, 5 Timed, 5 Distance, and 3 Incline workouts designed to help you get the results you want.


Your entertainment needs are catered for with a built-in sound system. A compatible music port allows you to plug in an iPOD or MP3 player, and with your player resting on the console shelf, you are able to enjoy the rich, equalized sound from the Intermix Acoustics music system.


The treadmill comes with a 25-year Motor warranty and 1-year Parts and Labor warranty.

LED Display: The display on this treadmill has a Multi-Window LED Display. The LED display elements are easier to read than LCDs and make keeping track of your workout a lot easier. This display tracks your speed, time, distance, and calories burned so that you are able to track your progress throughout your exercise session.


Speed Control: This model comes 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.




Incline Control: The treadmill also includes a “Quick Incline” control. This feature allows you to electronically change the degree of slope up or down between the values 0 – 10 deg throughout your workout from the control panel. Simulate running uphill and add both challenge and variety to your exercise session.


Cushioning System: This treadmill utilizes “ProShox” cushioning. The cushioning system compresses with each step and responds evenly to your stride, offering a truly comfortable workout.


Heart Rate Monitor: The treadmill is equipped with a Dual-Grip EKG Heart Rate Monitor. 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 help burn more fat.




Drive Motor: The treadmill is powered by a 2.5 CHP Mach Z drive motor. In addition to providing a smoother, quieter workout, the drive motor also contains an axial cooling fan that cools down the temperature of the internal components. This internal cooling helps to extend the working life of the motor.


iPOD Connection: The treadmill features an iPOD compatible music port. You can now 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 music while you exercise.


Workout Cooling Fan: The treadmill comes equipped with a “CoolAire” workout fan. This console-mounted fan will help you stay cool and comfortable during your workout.




User Weight: When choosing a treadmill, you should ensure that the manufacturer’s user weight limit can accommodate the weight of the user who will be using the treadmill. This treadmill has a user weight limit of 300 lbs.


Space Saver Design: This model 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 much smaller floor area.
