This is a modern, high-end treadmill
But surprisingly, it can also be operated as a treadmill desk. As its name suggests, the ProForm ThinLine treadmill presents a slim profile when in its folded position.
There are 34 workouts, split into four functional groups. The user can choose from high-intensity, incline, speed, and calorie-burn workouts.
This model is iFIT enabled. The iFIT technology allows the user to walk/jog/run tracks along routes generated by Google Maps that simulate the terrain of the trail you are following. It also features training sessions with Jillian Michaels.
The stylish console houses a backlit display providing workout feedback, and a “CoolAire” workout fan helps to keep things cool. A removable shelf is provided to hold a tablet computer in position.
The treadmill is underwritten by a lifetime frame and motor warranty, 5 years parts warranty, and 2 years labor warranty.
Driving this treadmill is a powerful 3.0 CHP motor. This unit makes use of high-grade wiring, insulation, and a thermal cut-off switch. Additionally, through the use of high-end, commercial bearings and brushes, this motor delivers the longest, most powerful drive possible.
The motor is also dynamically spin-balanced and extensively tested for superior performance in vibration and noise in order to deliver a smooth and quiet operation.
One of the key features of this treadmill is its integrated work desk. The control console can be lowered into a horizontal position whereupon the back of the unit forms a sturdy desktop.
With the equipment in its “desk” mode, the treadmill serves as a work station and provides a stable platform to support books, paperwork, or a laptop computer.
With it raised back to its usual upright position, it resumes its role as a normal treadmill control console.
Handrail Mounted Switches
Control switches for regulating both the speed and incline of the treadmill are conveniently mounted on the handrails. This location makes them readily accessible during use.
You are able to speed up, slow down, or adjust the elevation of the walking deck without having to press the buttons on the control panel. Having these secondary control switches is much more convenient and safer as you don’t have to lean forward to access the main control panel.
The treadmill comes equipped with “QuickSpeed” control. This means that you can easily jump to any speed within the range of 0 – 12 MPH with one touch at any time during your workout. You can decrease your speed immediately when you are tired and need a break, or increase it instantly for a challenging burst.
This treadmill has a varied selection of 34 programs split into four functional groups. Each workout has been designed by a certified personal trainer.
The user can choose from high-intensity, incline, speed, and calorie-burn workouts. The simple navigation makes it quick and easy to pick your workout and get going.
The workout programs take control of the treadmill and automatically adjust the speed and incline, allowing you to concentrate on working out.
Heart Rate Monitor
The treadmill is equipped with a dual-grip heart rate monitor. The built-in precision sensors allow you to quickly and accurately monitor your heart rate. The user simply grips the built-in sensors to quickly and accurately monitor their heart rate and stay within their optimum training zone in order to burn more fat.
Workout Cooling Fan
This treadmill has a “CoolAire” workout fan incorporated into the control console to keep the user cool during their workout. The fan features multiple speed settings. Pressing the fan increase or decrease button selects a fan speed or turns off the fan completely.
This treadmill is iFIT enabled. In essence, this is a wireless connection between the Internet and the treadmill. The iFIT feature allows you to experience trails all over the globe just as if you were running outside.
iFIT enables you to customize your fitness program, receive automatic workout downloads, manage your profile online, and work out with Jillian Michaels. You can even add the thrill of competition to your workout with 5k races against your Facebook friends.
It should be noted that this particular feature requires a home wireless internet connection and membership to iFIT.com, which is available as an optional extra.
The treadmill is also equipped with “Quick Incline” control. This allows you to electronically change the degree of slope up or down throughout your workout from the control panel. The slope of the incline can be adjusted within the range of 0% to 12%. You can simulate running uphill and add both challenge and variety to your exercise session.
In addition to the 12% of positive inclination that can be adjusted by a simple “Quick control” system, the deck is also able to decline to -3%. This is a feature that is usually only found on more expensive, gym-quality machines. The deck decline has the benefit of activating different muscles by walking at a decline. This is claimed to burn more calories and stimulate more muscle for faster results.
A safety key and lanyard are 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 user’s 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.
This is a folding or “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 much smaller floor area.
The ability to fold the deck into an upright position is also useful in order to clean the floor area under the treadmill as well as making any maintenance work on the treadmill easier.
The ProForm ThinLine treadmill desk is underwritten by a lifetime warranty on the frame and motor together with 5 years parts and 2 years labor.
