About ProForm Sport 7.0 Treadmill

The ProForm Sport 7.0 is a reliable treadmill for walkers and joggers. Although it’s not designed for intense running, it has a spacious 60-inch track and a 2.75HP motor that’s covered by a lifetime warranty. One of the most amazing features of this treadmill is the 12% incline. This incline feature adjusts smoothly by a simple button press or is automatically synced to one of the preset programs. This treadmill has 22 speed and inclines training programs giving you a variety of workout options.

If you’re looking for unlimited daily workouts, the Sport 7 gives you access to iFit. However, you will have to but the iFit module separately. This machine is the most affordable model in its category, but it may lack the fancy features in high-end treadmills.

What I Like:

Design:

The ProForm Sport 7.0 is an upgrade to the entry-level Sport 5.0 model. This treadmill by ProForm comes with a 0-12%, which is a quick and easy way to increase your workout intensity, thus helping burn more calories. You will get better results if you combine the steep incline gradients with one of the highest speed settings, thanks to the 12 MPH top speed. The best thing about this treadmill is that you can conveniently adjust the speed and incline using the in-handle controls.

This treadmill has a 20”x60” running belt powered by a 2.75CHP Mach Z™ Commercial DC motor. The Sport 7.0 is built using high-quality components and has an internal cooling system to minimize the wear on parts and reduce noise and vibration produced by the internal flywheel, leading to a smooth and quiet running experience.

The treadmill has a long tread belt that makes it ideal for tall runners who want to utilize their full natural running stride. The running deck is well covered with ProShox cushioning, which offers sufficient shock absorption to eliminate stress on your feet, knees, ankles, and hips when working out.

What I don’t like

  • The rollers are a bit small: The tread belt rolls on 1.9-inch rollers, which are quite small. Large rollers are known to extend the life of a tread belt compared to smaller rollers.
