Tour the world from your treadmill! The $799 ProForm Performance 600i (which is really close to the ProForm Performance 600c) combines Google Maps workouts with a solid build and a low price. Overall it’s one of the best treadmills in its price class. Key specs are a 60″ track, a 2.75 continuous horsepower motor and a 12 percent power incline.
Workout programming includes 22 built-in apps plus the option to use Google Maps workouts and other iFit features. iFit can be accessed on your own tablet computer, which can be securely clamped above the treadmill console.
The Performance 600i has built-in workout programs and can also be used with iFit’s infinite workout programming.
The 22 built-in workout programs were designed by a certified personal trainer. Each has a preset duration and controls the treadmill’s speed and incline.
iFit can easily be integrated using your own tablet computer; the treadmill has a secure tablet holder that’s smartly placed at eye level and within easy reach. With iFit on your mobile device, you can download a new workout every day, stream high definition video workouts, and virtually train around the world with Google Maps. The Google Maps feature lets you select from a menu or specify any path you please. The treadmill will adjust its 12% max incline to simulate the terrain, plus you’ll see an interactive Google Street View.
Performance 600i Features
A top feature on the Performance 600i Treadmill is its 12 percent incline. This automated ramp supports faster calorie burn and targeted muscle toning. It also lightens the load on your joints by shifting your body weight.
The workout area is the standard size for a runner’s treadmill (60″ x 20″). The track is cushioned by the same ProShox system that’s featured on more expensive ProForm treadmills. A potential problem is the track’s relatively thin material, but most customers are pleased with the durability.
Exercise data are shown on a Round Watts LED Display. Stats displayed are mileage, speed, calorie burn, heart rate and time elapsed. Heart rate is measured with contact sensors on the treadmill’s handlebars.
For extra motivation the Performance 600i has a tablet computer holder and an iPod-compatible sound system, which includes a port and 2″ speakers.
Finally, this treadmill has a SpaceSaver design. You can easily fold the deck upward to reclaim your floor space.

Remarkably solid, the ProForm Performance 600i is a best buy among low-priced treadmills. It is most appropriate for walkers and novice runners, but it can handle heavier workouts too. You might “graduate” to a heavier duty treadmill someday, but meanwhile the Performance 600i could certainly deliver its money’s worth for your fitness.
