The slope of the incline can be adjusted within the range 0 -15 deg. You can simulate running uphill and add both challenge and variety to your exercise session.

… ProShox cushioning

Exercising on a treadmill is a great way to keep fit but running or walking on some treadmills can result in wear and tear to your joints. The ProShox  cushioning system employed on this treadmill  helps to reduce the impact on your joints and delivers a more comfortable running surface.

The treadmill is also supplied with a wireless chest strap that transmits your heart rate information to the console without the need to grip the contact sensors when running for example.

... audio auxillary port

The treadmill features an auxilliary audio port. You can now enjoy your workout while you play your favorite music through the built-in dual 2" speakers. Simply plug in, press play and listen to your favorite music while you exercise.

... tablet computer holder

An integrated tablet computer holder is attached to the top of the control console, but can be removed if required.

It has been  designed for use with most tablet computers. The shelf keeps your tablet secure and in close proximity so that you can access any online training tools or entertainment.

... safety key

A safety key and lanyard is provided with the treadmill. In order for the treadmill to be operational the key must be present in the control console. This means that with the key withdrawn the treadmill cannot be operated by unauthorized users such as small children.

The safety key has a lanyard with a small plastic clip attached to one end which can be clipped onto the users clothing. If the user were to accidentally trip or fall while on the treadmill the key is pulled away from the console causing the treadmill's walking belt to slow to a stop.

... folding design

This is a "space saver" model which means that when not in use the treadmill can be folded into a near upright position where it will then occupy a lot smaller floor area.

The folding mechanism also incorporates an "easy lift" system which uses a hydraulic shock that slowly lowers the deck into place ready for use or assists in raising it to it's stored position.

With the deck raised into its upright "stored" position the deck automatically locks into place.

I bought this beast of a treadmill (and I mean that as a good thing) after reading all of the great details and specifications.

But what I really want to say is...... I've been around awhile and a retired U.S. Marine.

And since my military retirement, (I'm still working), I've been doing industrial maintenance for some time now. I did some type of maintenance while in the Marine Corps. In all.... I've been doing maintenance for over 40 years.

I just want you guys to know, putting this thing together, right out of the box, was an absolute joy.

Everything, and I mean everything, was exactly as your book described. From the parts layout of all the nuts and bolts to the detailed instruction booklet.

It was simply amazing. Even the nuts and bolts..... all laid out in steps. Not just 40 of these or 25 of those...

Proform, Gentlemen, Ladies...... you guys did a fabulous job packing it up and getting it ready to be put together.

And for those folks who are thinking about how difficult it might be to put together... don't be afraid. I still can't get over it.

And one more thing for you folks out there..... after reading about how great this treadmill is.... there's one thing I didn't see in the details and specifications.

You won't believe how quiet this thing is.

When I turned it on for the very first time. I didn't know it was on until I looked down and saw the belt moving. It is so quiet.

I love it...!!! ProForm..... this is a great machine in everyway!!!

We purchased this treadmill about 2 months ago.

It gets used 2-3 times a week for about 45 minutes each time.

It is very comfortable to run or walk on. Easy to use the control for speed and incline.

We love it, this is our 2nd proform treadmill. 1st one lasted 15 + years.

We ordered the 995i last Monday and it was at our place Friday.

I put it together in about 2 hours, with some help from my wife. All the parts were there, no damage, and the directions were clear and easy to understand.

We haven't used it yet, but it seems to work fine, looking forward to the first run.

We replaced our Proform we had for 12 years with a lot of miles. Glad I got the Proform and not another brand.

It is a little heavy we had 4 of us to move it to the basement but 3 guys would be fine, just nice to have an extra pair of hands.
