ProForm 380 CS Review

This product has been discontinued

Quick Summary

ProForm has always been a well respected name in the treadmill business, the mastermind behind the now world-famous SpaceSaver foldaway design.

The question has now become whether or not the strong tradition can continue with their latest models such as the ProForm 380 CS.

Outfitted with ProSoft Cushioning System (which according to the manufacture reduces impact on your joints by up to 15 percent when compared to road running), ProForm has demonstrated that it stills cares about its customers.

Our Rating

Rating: 50.0/100. Add some motivation to your workout routine with iPod compatibility and built-in speakers available on a budget-friendly treadmill. The 380 CS is designed primarily for small body sizes and walkers considering its size of motor, running surface, and max user weight.

  • LCD display monitors workout data
  • CoolAire workout fan keeps you cool and comfortable
  • Monitor heart rate with Dual-Grip EKG pulse grips

  • Small running surface (16″ x 50″)
  • Compact treadmill but does not fold
  • Poor warranty coverage, only 90 days parts


The ProForm 380 CS is very affordable, one of the few treadmills that fits in the “Under $500″ category on FitRated.

Unfortunately, that price also means that you’ll get what you pay for.

Since the ProForm 380 CS only supports a 1.5 CHP motor, the user capability is pretty limited. However, the ProForm 380 CS is a great budget buy for walkers or beginning users looking for a quick workout.

The ProForm 380 CS is compact, equipped with all the necessary features and ideal for the the light, recreational user because the frame only supports a max user weight of 250 lbs. and the running surface is small (16″x 50”).

Workout Programs

The six preset workout programs are designed to lose weight and burn fat.

The programs takes the guessing out of your routine as the 380 CS automatically adjusts for speed and incline while you move along to the pre-determined speed and time settings.

Just press start and the treadmill will take care of the rest.
