About ProForm Carbon T7 Treadmill

The ProForm Carbon T7 is an affordable treadmill designed for interactive training and can work in almost any home gym space. This treadmill feels compact and has a folding SpaceSaver design that helps you pack it away after working out. It prioritizes comfort and has ISO Flex Deck cushioning, giving you a comfortable working area without impacting your joints.

The Self-cooling Mach Z motor guarantees a top speed of 10 MPH and an incline of 10%. This incline and speed range makes the machine perfect for joggers and walkers, but not professional runners.

Since this ProForm treadmill model was made for interactive training with iFit, it comes with a 7-inch touchscreen display. If you pay a one-year iFit membership, you will have unlimited access to workout classes and Google Maps trails. The remote iFit trainers can automatically control the incline and speed of the Carbon T7 when exercising, allowing you to concentrate fully on your fitness journey.

There are several reasons to fall for Carbon T7, but it may not suit everyone. If you want a machine that will supplement your weightlifting at a budget price, or you’re working with a small space, this treadmill should tick all those boxes. However, you may want to look for something more expensive if you’re a tall guy since the tread’s running deck is a bit short. Fortunately, if you want to build your home gym in a small space, you will appreciate the small footprint of this treadmill.

What I Like:

Design:

The ProForm Carbon T7 comes with a steel frame with plastic-covered handrails and powder-coated uprights. If you have limited space, the frame folds into a compact machine. It has the ProForm’s proprietary EasyLift Assist system that allows you to lift the deck. However, the deck lacks hydraulic support as it lowers down, so ensure you hold it gently as it hits the floor.

The tread belt is 20-inch wide and 55-inch long, making it a great option for those who plan to jog or walk. If you’re a tall guy or plan to do lots of running, you should look for a treadmill with a longer deck. This treadmill has a 2.75HP motor that is great for jogging or walking. This motor powers the inclines and speed, and the machine doesn’t lag when adjusting the metrics. What’s more, this treadmill has a top speed of 10 MPH and a maximum incline of 10%.

Technology:

Apart from the basic features like volume control, a built-in fan, speakers, and speed/incline jump buttons, the Carbon T7 also comes with a 7-inch HD interactive Touchscreen display. This display allows you to follow iFit workouts and track your time, distance, calories burned, and more while exercising. It has two built-in fans with four-speed settings that you can use depending on the intensity of your workouts. What’s more, you can monitor your heart rate using the EKG grip pulse heart rate sensor.

Performance:

The Carbon T7 is a reliable treadmill with impressive features. It has preset buttons that help you adjust speed and incline by a single metric. Although it is an entry-level model, it is well suited for walkers and joggers at home and has access to iFit workouts. You will have several training options with iFit, which you can view on a laptop or TV since the T7 display is small.

Exercise programs:

One of the main drawbacks of the Carbon T7 is its lack of built-in workout programs. Fortunately, this machine comes with a one-month free iFit membership, so you can choose your favorite interactive classes to help you achieve your fitness goals.

Storage:

The Carbon T7 is easy to fold and securely locks in place when not in use. If you’ve limited space, this treadmill has a compact design that makes storage a breeze.

Weight Capacity:

The ProForm Carbon T7 supports up to 300 pounds of weight. However, if you’re a heavier guy, you may have to look for a more rugged option.

Warranty:

This machine has a 10-year frame warranty and one-year labor and parts warranty.

What I don’t like

  • It lacks built-in programs: Although this treadmill focuses more on interactive training, it would be better to have some built-in workout programs. This will help you if you don’t want to use the iFit Family membership.

My Verdict:

The ProForm Carbon T7 is a sturdy treadmill designed to help steady joggers walk their way to a fit and healthy lifestyle. If you have a tight budget, like some great technology, and take virtual classes, this treadmill will be a great choice.
