I am actually surfing net and playing Facebook via this 10” touch screen display during my workout. It make my workout become an interesting exercise and not boring anymore.
Instead of scrolling through all your options when you want to change incline or speed levels, 1-Touch speed system fitted to the ProForm Performance 1450 allows you to instantly change the speed of the treadmill between the values of 0-12 MPH with a single touch of a button. This also helps as it doesn’t throw off your stride if you’re running or walking fast.
Extra Accessory – Standard
Build-in fan and quality speaker system have become an important features for newer treadmill. Honestly, i do not hope on a treadmill can provide me good stereo sound system . But surprisingly the Intermix Acoustics™ 3.0 sound system on Performance 1450 are delivering incredible clarity sound. A bonus for this treadmill. You also can plug-in your iPod and enjoy exercising more with favorite music enabled. This premium sound system features 3″ high-excursion drivers to deliver a crisp, clear sound.
There are a AutoBreeze Workout Fan incorporated into the console and will automatically changes airflow to match your workout speed. You also can set it manually by choosing 3 different speed among low,medium and high speeds. Of course i prefer the automatic speed adjustment which help on body especially when i run fast.
Warranty – Average For This Price Point
Similiar with other higher end Proform treadmill, Proform Performance 1450 treadmill are offers a lifetime warranty on the Motor and Frame, with 5 years on parts and 2 year labor warranty. Lengthy Warranty with 2 Years On Service compare standard which is only 1 year is a good coverage for your treadmill. Who know you might need this extended warranty that end up saving you a lot of money if something goes wrong with your treadmill.
Price – Additional 10% Off
Althrough Proform Performance 1450 is newly introduce at 2011 with all the most wanted features, it is very hardly to believe that it only sold at MSRP of $2,499, This is already a good deal, but Proform are still offer with cheaper price if you get it directly from manufacturer during sale. There are always offering sale priced for as low as $1,499 plus shipping where you can for additional $200-$300.
Wrap-up – Only For Those Looking For Advanced Technology
So far customer reviews are still limited on Proform Performance 1450 treadmill as it just newly introduce. But with all the wonderful features as mention above, overall ProForm Performance 1450 treadmill seems to offer everything you dream of in a treadmill. Features like an Android tablet are going to be standard on treadmills in the years to come, but right now this technology mounted on a treadmill console are still have a lot of uncertainty. Beware of software evolving every 18 months and your treadmill display will quickly become outdated. I would recommended this treadmill for those who looking for advanced technology and innovative features designed treadmill to motivate for achieving fitness goals.
