Workout Programs

ProForm designed the Power 1295i treadmill with input from a certified personal trainer. Its console is loaded with 34 workout programs that control the treadmill’s speed and incline (maximum 12%) to maximize your treadmill training for calorie burn or performance. Data feedback includes calories burned, distance, speed, time, incline and pulse. Pulse is measured with a grip monitor on the handlebars.

Besides providing built-in apps the ProForm Power 1295i is ready for use with an iFit membership which is free for the first year. iFit helps keep you motivated throughout the years by letting you experience a new workout every day. The console has a 7″ high contrast screen for displaying all sorts of iFit training files: high-definition video workouts, Google Maps workouts with Street View, and standard personal training workouts. We especially like the Google Maps workouts for virtual outdoor exercise, as these let you prepare very specifically for real-life race routes or just explore our world from home. Each iFit subscription also allows multiple user profiles and includes helpful features such as a workout calendar, community message boards, and automatic logging of fitness stats.

ProForm SMART Power 1295i Features

The ProForm Power 1295i is meant for daily running as well as walking. Just like the standard health club treadmill, it has a high speed of 12 mph. It’s also equipped with a high-end 3.5 CHP Mach Z commercial  motor that exceeds the industry standard for home treadmills for runners. The extra power helps ensure that workouts will be trouble-free even with heavy use.

For extra cardio challenge and muscle toning, the workout surface can incline up to 12% and be used with interval training. The incline is controlled electronically so you can seamlessly use more than one setting per workout.

Entertainment and trainer led videos make for motivating and interesting workouts. The audio auxiliary port with the dual 2” Bluetooth speakers enhances your music or that extra push from your favorite iFit trainer.

To help keep you cool, the console has a two-speed fan and can hold a water bottle.

To give an estimate of heart rate, contact heart rate sensors are built into the handlebars.

The track is maintenance-free, which means it can run for thousands of miles without need for realignment or waxing.

A SpaceSaver treadmill, the Power 1295i has an easy hydraulic system for storing the deck upright.
