We're love the Performance 600C. Still getting use to it as we haven't used a treadmill for a long time.

It has everything you need for a great workout and more.

Hope to see a big change and it's good exercise.

Before buying the 600C, I read several reviews on some of the other PRO-FORM models. A few people told stories of the problems that they had assembling their units plus stories relating to missing or damaged pieces or problems with the units functions.

Regardless, I decided to go ahead and get the 600c. Yes, the unit is heavy when it is delivered (about 250 lbs.), but with the help of a four wheel dolly that we have, my wife and I got it into the house without any problems.

Assembly was not a problem, however, you must take your time thoroughly reading each step as you put it together. The only area where you really need to pay attention is at the point where you plug in the console to the power cable.

The power cable is a multi wire connector that could be damaged if a person was to force its connection. I played around with the plug a little and once it was properly aligned it easily snapped together.

Once assembled and all of the hardware was checked for tightness I plugged it in and checked all of the operating features.

Everything functioned perfectly. The unit is reasonably quiet when running which is a plus.

So far, this unit has either met or exceed my expectations and I have no regrets about buying the PRO-FORM 600C.

I am extremely pleased with the treadmill. I love the way the treadmill sounds (very quiet) and soft running.

This treadmill has been ideal for home use...very stable & quiet.

We have been using it for almost 2 months and haven't had a single issue.

The built-in speaker system was an unexpected pleasant surprise.
