Where Can I Buy It?

  • Awesome Treadmill Choice

    May 14, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid, Smooth Equipment, IFit software, Big 2.5 HP motor.
    Cons: Instructions on Assembly difficult to understand

    Summary: We purchased the Proform 520 several months ago. It was packaged well and could be easy moved to the basement by 2 men. I've seen other monster treadmills that take 4 people to move. The 520 also folds up nicely, but alas in the basement this feature ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Donot buy their products. The company should be sued and closed 

    Summary: This treadmill is so horrible. We bought this in April and within 15days of usage the machine started giving problems. Burnt smell started coming and immediately stopped working. It took over 1.5months to get all the parts changed but still it ... read more

    Pros: Excellent quality. Good quality display.

    Pros: Good shocks, fair price, folds up

    Pros: Little
    Cons: Lot

    Summary: My Pro-Form 520 treadmill began breaking down just several months after purchase, running then stopping after a few minutes. I have an extended warranty through N.E.W. Corporation which is useless as I've called approx 12 times (notes) and they have ... read more

  • Buy a different treadmill

    Pros: Quiet, smooth, folds up easily, good price
    Cons: Poor quality, poor warranty, poor customer service

    Summary: This treadmill has a lot of nice features and when it works, it's smooth and quiet. However, the motor broke after eight months of limited use and because we didn't have an extended warranty, we were out of luck. We ended up replacing the motor out of ... read more

    Pros: Good Shocks, plenty of features, and a good price.
    Cons: As all treadmills are they are noisy.

    Summary: As a valued associate to Modell's Sporting Goods stores I can honestly say that this Treadmill at its price has had the least amount of complaints out of all the treadmills we have. This treadmill features a 2.75 Horsepower motor, 0-10 miles per hour ... read more

    Pros: -easy to operate -stores nicely -great speed range
    Cons: -buttons are very hard to push -short life span -can't leave the speedometer on "minutes/mile"

  • Don't buy cheap treadmills...

    Dec 5, 2003 by

    Pros: It was inexpensive.
    Cons: Everything else. It's a cheap treadmill and performed like one.

    Summary: Boy, I got a great deal considering what the fitness specific places were charging! I sure was wrong. This is loud, flimsy, and VERY cheaply made. You pay for what you get. Horrible warranty. This was broken within 2 months. And it was out of ... read more
