Rated 4 out of 5★ by Just4MeAndNot4U VERY HIGH TECH - GIFT TO SELF ;) I've owned one treadmill in my lifetime years ago but I've never seen one like this OMG! All you have to do is turn it on, select your workout & start walking. All your favorite apps is at your fingertips like Facebook (allows you to post your stats on your wall while walking & chatting w/friends and family); MP3 outlet allows you to listen to your personalized music straight from your IPOD; Has a built in "fan" to keep you cool during your workout HOW AWESOME IS THAT!Note to buyer: If you are NOT a computer savvy or gadget person, I would not recommend this high tech piece of equipment but if you are GO FOR IT YOU WILL FALL IN LUV & BECOME SELF MOTIVATED or just use the built in coach with iFit. I walked inclined the street of Cape Town in Africa &climbed a mountain in Hawaii with Google Map.The only downside I had about this product was that, it did not come fully assembled and it took me a few weeks to find an available family member to help me as this equipment stands 6â€™9 inch tall and heavy so you will need assistance to place the bar underneath the treadmill for storing in the upright position. Proform also offer a service to put it together for $170. After spending over $1600 for this treadmill I was not about to give up another dime so that was motivation enough to do it myself â€śNAILED IT!â€ť My teenagers are loving it as we take turns on it.I would have rated it EXCELLENT if it came fully assembled for the price $$$$ 02/16/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by maxikyd Big and Beautiful -If exercise equipment CAN be beautiful. I live in an extremely rural area, and the white glove delivery and setup folk don't like coming WAAAY out here, so I was on my own. If they will come to you--it's worth it. This machine is extremely heavy. I had to have LOTS of help getting it out of my pickup and into the house.-Setup was tedious, and would have been MUCH easier if I had someone here to help me, but I'm stubborn, and that worked in my favor. The manual does recommend having a second person, and I should have. It took about three hours to set up by myself, and there was some serious heavy lifting involved.-Read the directions first, and then sort the various little pieces so you don't miss something and have to take it half apart again just to add the flashing (oh, yes, I did).-The manual could be better organized.-One of the first steps is to go online and register the treadmill, but I suggest leaving that for a last step as the serial number is underneath the bottom lip and, if working alone, very difficult to get to. I finally propped the base on my shoulder and used my cell phone to snap a picture of the serial number--waiting until I was done would have been a better choice.Some of the final steps include plugging in and calibrating the treadmill, and the manual had me skipping back and forth from page to page to follow various other sets of instructions before returning back to the assembly pages to finish.Figuring out the screen to do the setup and initial calibration was tricky as the pictures in the manual don't have arrows pointing to what it's talking about, but after a couple of minutes, I found the correct screen and got everything working.-The treadmill itself is solid, large, and VERY heavy. The track is 11 inches off the ground, making me so tall I can't use it under the ceiling fan; the console itself is nearly 5 feet tall. Folded, the base stands 6 feet tall, and still occupies 43 inches of space because it angles away from the console. Opened, it takes the same amount of floor space as an extra-long twin bed, but is a lot less comfortable to lie on.-The lift assist to make opening/folding the treadmill is fairly easy to use, but READ THE DIRECTIONS. Pull the knob, don't turn it. If you turn it (yep, I did) it will not properly hold the base in the upright position until you tighten it again. This works just like the easy lift on a hatchback car, SUPER easy.-Hook up to my wireless network was easy once I found the setup screen, and the browser works like any android tablet. The connector for my Ipod/phone/mp3 player is a standard mini-plug, and there is also a USB port to hook into to keep power to the player as you work out.-Haven't tried it with the ifit, as my code has not arrived yet; that being said, don't register for iFit.com until you have your code, or the website will charge you to join-and it is much less expensive here at Walmart .com. ($102 for two years here, $149 at iFit.com.-the belt is long and wide enough for my stride, although I have used belts that were wider, I prefer this as dismounting is easier than on a wider belt.All in all, I am extremely pleased with my purchase and look forward to winter with less trepidation as I will be able to exercise inside without the fear of slipping on ice. 07/02/2014
