My wife and i are very happy with our pro 2000. We researched treadmills for days before deciding on this one.
After ordering, the unit was at our house in less than two weeks. Setting up is a two person job, but only took two hrs.
The built in programs are great. Access to the incline/decline and mph buttons is quick and easy.
Nice to be able to workout in the comforts of our home, especially when its cold/wet outside. We highly recommend this treadmill.
I was a member of a gym for awhile and used to the overpriced machines so I thought I wanted one of those other treadmills.
I did a lot of research on different treadmills and one site rated this one their top pick in this price range so I checked many sites to see what other people said and most had good reviews.
My treadmill did take about 3 weeks to be delivered after I ordered it but it was with the wait. I didn't buy the iFit module but maybe will later.
I'm so happy to have a nice and sturdy treadmill and at a great price!!!
I would completely recommend this treadmill to anyone looking to buy one.
This is a great treadmill. I have had it for 6 months and I can't say enough good things about it. My family uses it all the time.
When it arrives at your house you are going to need 2-4 people to move it to where you are going to set it up.
It's a heavy machine (something you want in a good treadmill). You need 2 people to set it up. It would be difficult to do it all yourself.
I'm really enjoying this treadmill.
I really like the speed adjustment buttons on the right side of the screen. Just one touch and the speed adjusts quickly. The incline buttons work in the same way.
I haven't used the programs yet. The fan isn't super strong but helps.
I like the mechanism that controls the lowering of the treadmill from the storage position.
I expect to get many years of use out of this machine.
