Powered by a durable 2.25 CHP motor, the ProForm Perspective 1.0 LX treadmill has an inbuilt TV and many other exciting features often found only in expensive commercial-grade exercise treadmills.

This equipment is comfortable to run on due to the ProShox adjustable cushioning, which results in less stress on ankles, knees and hips.

The treadmill has a speed range of 0-10 mph controlled by QuickSpeed buttons, with a one touch Power Incline from 0 -12 %.

The EKG Grip Pulse technology allows you to stay in your target heart-rate range by glancing at the console window during your fitness workout.

Exercise and entertainment come together in this equipment with a 7” flat screen TV and built-in speakers, this ‘mill lets you monitor your fitness workout progress and watch your favorite shows at the same time!

This model is iFIT compatible. The iFIT technology uses CD, video, and Internet programs to automatically control the speed, incline, or resistance of your machine, giving you a more enjoyable fitness workout.

This allows you to use videos, audio cd’s, and the internet to change the way your treadmill works. You can download new performance programs off the internet, and watch footage of a run through a canyon as the treadmill changes speed and incline to the video.

It is just like having a personal fitness trainer in your living room – you can burn nearly 250 calories each time during your fitness workout.

The product is covered by a 15 year motor warranty.
