Which ProForm Treadmill Should You Buy?

 There are three main groupings of ProFrom treadmills, including the Pro, Carbon, and City series. 

The Pro series is the most expensive and is designed for serious runners with 60-inch running decks and powerful motors. Additionally, they are foldable with EasyLift assist, which are gas shocks for safe folding and unfolding. These treadmills also feature both incline and decline training.

The Carbon series offers a slight price break with slightly shorter, 55-inch running decks and reduced horsepower. The Carbon models offer incline training, but do not feature decline training. This series also features EasyLift assist. 

Lastly, the City series (which consists of just one model: the L6) has a unique space-saver design that folds completely flat by bringing the console and uprights down over the tread belt so you can store it under a bed. This model is significantly smaller with a 45-inch deck and is primarily meant for walkers. 

Although the capabilities of these treadmills vary quite a bit, here are the similarities all six model share: 

  • Foldable 
  • iFIT-enabled
  • Bluetooth capabilities 
  • Coolaire workout fan (with the exception of the L6)
  • 10-year frame warranty 
  • Deck cushioning

Product Highlights

  • Compatible with iFIT
  • Powerful motor
  • Foldable treadmill
  • Large 22-inch HD displays
  • Handsfree incline/speed adjustments

Pros & Cons


  • Large 22-inch display
  • Compatible with iFIT
  • Incline and decline training available
  • Cushioned deck
  • Fan and water bottle holder
  • Bluetooth speakers


  • Priced around $1,800
  • iFIT subscription is an additional cost
  • Heavy machine with a big footprint
  • You cannot store or use this treadmill in your garage without voiding the warranty

Bottom Line

The ProForm Pro 9000 is a powerful, pricey treadmill great for those who want interactive programming from a reliable machine.

The ProForm Pro 9000 is a solid home treadmill for several reasons including the ability to run on at a 3 percent decline in addition to incline settings up to 12 percent. 

This wide range of incline options paired with the library of on-demand iFIT workouts makes for an endless array of running possibilities.

The Pro 9000 also features automatic trainer control that allows your virtual coach to control the incline, decline, and speed of your workouts based on coaching cues. Additionally, if you use the Google Maps feature in iFIT, the same automatic trainer control takes place based on the terrain of the location you choose. 

This model also features a large, 22-inch HD touchscreen to bring your iFIT workouts to life. Speaking of large: The tread belt is spacious at 20 inches wide and 60 inches long, which is suitable for all sorts of runners—even for you taller folks out there.

GGR Score: 4.3 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

The ProForm Pro 2000 is a top rated, high-quality treadmill packed with upgrades, making it extremely attractive to fitness enthusiasts. The newest model of the Pro 2000 features a 10-inch interactive touchscreen, console cooling fans, Bluetooth audio capabilities with 2-inch speakers, and a spacious 20-by-60-inch cushioned running surface. The 3.25 horsepower motor supports speeds up to 12 miles per hour and, unlike other treadmills at this price point, the ProForm Pro 2000 offers both incline and decline, which adds variety to your training. Included in your purchase is a free 30-day trial of iFIT, which houses over 16,000 live and on demand classes. 

Pros & Cons


  • 10-inch interactive touch screen
  • Cushioning reduces impact on joints
  • Folds up and locks when not in use
  • 3.25 horsepower motor is ideal for walking, jogging or light running
  • iFIT comes free for 30 days with over 16,000 on-demand and live workouts
  • Large running surface
  • Incline and decline options ranging from -3% decline to 12% incline
  • Upgraded console with cooling fans and 2 inch Bluetooth speakers
  • Reviews state it is quiet


  • 3.25 horsepower motor not built to support extended training or long-distance running
  • iFIT requires a subscription after the 30 day trial period

Bottom Line

At an affordable price, the ProForm Pro 2000 is a great buy with notable specs, features and size for anyone looking to walk, jog or do some light running.

The ProForm Pro 2000 is similar to the Pro 9000 but with a slightly smaller (but still powerful) motor and a smaller touchscreen display. Both of these factors drop the price below the $2,000 mark to make this a more affordable choice for anyone wanting a home treadmill for running

The 60-inch-long running deck allows you to take a full stride and the powerful 3.25 CHP motor will keep up with long runs, intervals, and switching between both incline and decline. Our expert product testers recommend that anyone planning to run regularly invests in a treadmill with a motor horsepower of at least 3.0 to keep up with the demands of running.

ProForm Carbon T14 Treadmill

Good for: Casual runners or folks on the shorter side

ProForm Carbon T14

ProForm Carbon T14 Treadmill

GGR Score: 3.83 starstarstarstarstar
Community Score: 4 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

  • 14” HD touchscreen 
  • 0-12% incline 
  • 0-10 MPH 
  • iFit compatible

Pros & Cons


  • Free shipping
  • 30-day return policy
  • 300 lbs user weight capacity
  • 0-12 degrees incline
  • Folds up with EasyLift assist to store after workout
  • iFit compatible with trainer controls


  • Top speed of 10 MPH is lower than similarly priced competitors
  • 2.75 CHP motor
  • Screen does not rotate for off treadmill workouts
  • 55” long tread belt may be too short for taller users
  • No user reviews available at time of publishing

Bottom Line

The Carbon T14 is a treadmill at a higher price-point that doesn’t have all the features of similarly priced treadmills. Unless you are set on purchasing a treadmill with iFit capabilities there is probably a better treadmill for you. Additionally, without any customer reviews we aren’t comfortable recommending it.

The ProForm Carbon T14 will serve you well if your height (or stride length) doesn’t require a 60-inch-long deck. If you’re on the shorter side—let’s say under 5 feet, 9 inches—you can probably get away with the Carbon T14’s 55-inch-long running deck for casual running. That said, the motor horsepower is 2.75 CHP, which is just below what we like to see for folks logging a lot of miles.

The Carbon T14 is a mid-range treadmill that could be a good fit for the right home gym owner. If you plan to mostly walk (mixed with the occasional run), this could be a suitable machine. You’ll get the built-in 14-inch smart HD touchscreen featuring iFIT programming and automatic trainer control. The Carbon T14 can incline up to 10 percent grade and reach top speeds of 10 mph. 

GGR editor and certified personal trainer Nicole Davis tested the Carbon T14 and found that it was remarkably sturdy at top speeds. During her trial workout, she also noted the ISO Flex cushioning system felt comfortable underfoot. For more details on Nicole’s experience, read our in-depth ProForm Carbon T14 review

Product Highlights

  • Cushioned running deck
  • 3.0 horsepower motor
  • Free three-year iFIT family membership
  • 10" HD smart touchscreen 
  • Console fans and dual audio auxiliary port speakers
  • EKG grip heart rate sensors

Pros & Cons


  • 3 year iFIT family membership included with purchase
  • Interactive smart screen
  • Incline ranges from 0-12 percent with quick incline one touch button
  • Speed ranges .5-12 miles per hour with quick speed on touch button
  • Cushioned running deck
  • Foldable
  • 30 day return policy


  • Smaller running belt: 20” x 55”
  • A 3.0 horsepower motor does not match price point
  • Returns will be charged a $250 shopping fee and 10% restocking fee

Bottom Line

Is the ProForm Carbon T10 a good treadmill? It really depends on your fitness goals. If you prioritize performance and durability over technology then this is not the treadmill for you. But, if you are looking for a tech savvy machine and trainer led program optionality, you will be hard pressed to find another treadmill with an interactive touchscreen and three years of iFIT membership at this price.

Although all the treadmills on the ProForm lineup have a space-saving foldable design, it’s worth noting that the Carbon T10 has a slightly smaller footprint than its big brother, the T14 and the Pro series treadmills.

That said, it also features a smaller 2.6 CHP motor, which can work for occasional running but will be suited for walking and light jogging. A motor under 3.0 horsepower can sustain speeds for running, but our GGR expert product testers know that the machine’s overall longevity comes into question with the reduced power. 

Another reason this treadmill is better for walkers and joggers is because the walking belt is only 55-inches long, which will make it hard for a lot of people to run with a full, natural gait. 

If you’re curious about our firsthand experience with the ProForm Carbon T10 (plus more details on iFIT and the built-in 10-inch touchscreen display) our in-depth review has all the information you need. 

ProForm Carbon T7 Treadmill

Good for: Beginners who want interactive programming and incline options

ProForm Carbon T7

ProForm Carbon T7 Folding Treadmill

GGR Score: 3.83 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

The ProForm Carbon T7 Folding Treadmill is a compact, foldable, and portable treadmill from a reputable brand that brings interactive training to your home gym at an affordable price. Featuring a 20-inch by 55-inch cushioned running deck, console fans, and integrated speakers, the T7 is designed with comfort in mind. Powered by a 2.6 CHP motor, this folding treadmill reaches speeds up to 10 miles per hour as well as an incline range of 0-10 percent. Purchasing the ProForm Carbon T7 brings users a free, 30-day trial of iFIT, which houses thousands of live and on-demand classes led by world-class trainers. Utilize the 7-inch touchscreen to immerse yourself in a workout or get lost in vivid scenery from around the world.

Pros & Cons


  • Compact
  • Foldable
  • Cushioned running deck
  • Integrated speakers
  • Cooling fans
  • Free 30-day iFIT membership
  • Financing available


  • No onboard pre-programmed workouts
  • Smaller running surface

Bottom Line

The ProForm Carbon T7 is an affordable folding treadmill with nice cushioning. Its folding design, added conveniences, and optionality for interactive programming are attractive to those with limited floor space.

The ProForm Carbon T7 is part of the ProForm Plus program, which allows you to get a pretty sweet bundle deal on this solid treadmill. 

Essentially, the ProForm Plus program lets you commit to the cost of a 3-year family plan iFIT membership and with that you get the T7 treadmill for free. The word free might be an exaggeration because you’re still spending over $1,000 for this bundle.

This opportunity could be worth it for folks who are excited about using a iFIT subscription. If you combine the value of the treadmill at MSRP (about $1,000 based on our actual experience ordering the T7 prior to this deal) and the cost of 3 years’ worth of iFIT (which is $39 per month) you are saving yourself quite a bit of cash. 

For that reason, this treadmill is ideal if you’re just starting your fitness journey and you want a treadmill with built-in programming that makes it interesting and engaging to hop on and press start. 

Nicole tested the Carbon T7 and notes that the treadmill got a little shaky when she cranked up the speed. Nicole had no problem with her stride as she’s fairly short at 5 feet and 3 inches tall. You can read more about Nicole’s experience on the ProForm Carbon T7 in our full review. 

ProForm City L6 Treadmill

GGR Score: 3.05 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

  • Foldable treadmill 
  • 0-8 MPH
  • 125-lb product weight 
  • 250-lb user weight capacity

Pros & Cons


  • Foldable design
  • iFIT programming with trainer-controlled speed
  • Tablet holder
  • Free shipping
  • Bluetooth-enabled
  • 0-8 MPH speed


  • No built in screen for iFIT programming
  • 30-day return policy with $250 shipping + 10% restocking fee
  • User weight capacity 250 lbs
  • No incline or decline ability

Bottom Line

The ProForm City L6 folding treadmill is an affordable and compact treadmill to add to your home even if you don’t have a dedicated home gym.

The ProForm City L6 is an affordable and compact machine that folds completely flat for easy storage. Although the City L6 will not be everyone’s cup of tea, it could be the perfect cardio machine if you’re short on space and need the ability to stow a treadmill away fully. 

The budget price point is seen in the short, 45-inch walking deck and the small LCD display. Although the City L6 lacks a high-tech touchscreen, you will be able to connect with iFIT via Bluetooth and set your own smart device on the tablet holder to follow along with iFIT workouts.

The City L6 does not have incline options, but when using iFIT you will still have access to automic trainer control that matches the speed of the tread belt to the pace of the workout. 

Nicole hopped on the City L6 for a trial workout and was quite surprised how much this small but mighty machine offers. You can read about Nicole’s experience in her in-depth review on the ProForm City L6.  

What to Look For in ProForm Treadmills

We know the treadmill buying process can be overwhelming—between searching for the best price and comparing tons of specs, it’s hard to remember what’s important. 

If you’re a serious runner, the ProForm Pro series is designed to withstand continuous running and a running deck that allows for a natural gait. 

The Carbon series can support running, but won’t be the best option for taller people (about 5 feet, 9 inches and above) because of the 55-inch deck. The City treadmill is best for anyone looking for a compact and space-saving solution for tackling daily steps. 

Brand Policies

It’s worth noting that our GGR product testers all agree that ProForm customer service is hit-or-miss through parent company, iFIT. I’ve personally had polarizing experiences from waiting a week for an email response to getting a timely live chat answer within minutes. 

Thankfully ProForm has fairly consistent policies on the entire treadmill lineup, which we’ll break down in more detail here: 


All ProForm treadmills come standard with a 10-year frame warranty. The parts warranties differ depending on what model you purchase, but it’s either a one or two-year policy. Additionally, labor warranties last one year on all treadmills. 

According to the brand’s website, the warranty policy does not cover any issues caused by freight damage (oh my!), abuse, misuse, and abnormal usage. Essentially, the warranty only covers manufacturer defects. 

During the checkout process, you will have the option to extend your treadmill warranty, but I’d personally suggest skipping that based on what the warranty covers (i.e., not normal wear and tear). 


ProForm gives you a 30-day window from your delivery date to request a return if you’re not totally thrilled with your treadmill purchase. Although it’s fairly common, it may surprise you that if you decide to return your treadmill you’ll be on the hook for $250 in shipping fees and a 10% processing fee.

Also, if you paid for any upgraded services like in-home delivery or assembly, those fees are non-refundable.  


ProForm teams up with TD Bank to offer treadmill financing directly through the website at checkout. After entering your personal information, you will have the option to enter your credit card for a one-time payment in full or apply for financing. If you qualify, you can receive 0% APR for terms ranging from 12 to 39 months. 

Final Verdict of Our ProForm Treadmill Reviews

At the end of the day, ProForm offers home gym owners a solid option for treadmills. Although the price tags vary from about $600 to $2,300, it’s likely you can find one that works for your budget, square footage, and personal fitness goals

All that said, I think if you are interested in a ProForm treadmill you will also want to be excited about iFIT interactive workout programs. The treadmills are designed to work with iFIT and our product testers agree that manual mode is pretty underwhelming. 

With iFIT, you’ll also have to pay for a monthly subscription on top of the machine’s base price. If you’re not jazzed about interactive programming, ProForm might not be the brand for you. 

ProForm Treadmill Reviews FAQs

Is the ProForm treadmill worth it?

To determine if a ProForm treadmill is worth it will be highly subjective for each individual. It will depend on your budget, space, your fitness goals, and how frequently you plan to use it. An expensive piece of fitness equipment (like a treadmill) is often worth it when you use and enjoy using it. 

Which one is better: NordicTrack or ProForm?

NordicTrack and ProForm treadmills are similar machines due to the fact they share the same parent company. That aside, it’s worth noting that NordicTrack treadmills are often referred to as the higher-end option, while ProForm is marketed toward budget-conscious shoppers.

Is the Peloton better than the ProForm?

Peloton and ProForm both manufacture treadmills, but to say which is better depends on your needs, budget, and overall expectations of a treadmill. ProForm offers treadmills in varying price ranges and that are doable for a variety of home gym owners.

Is ProForm the same as Peloton?

ProForm is owned and operated by iFIT and is unrelated and completely distinct from Peloton.
