The Premier 900 Treadmill is a good example for explaining ProForm’s popularity. For just $1,299 this treadmill provides plenty of workouts designed by a certified personal trainer, plus it’s enabled to download unlimited Google Maps™ workouts and other iFit training. The track is roomy for walking and has a 12% power incline to give you an extra workout boost. Other perks include an iPod-compatible sound system, an adjustable tablet computer holder, and a full color touch screen. This treadmill sells for $1,299 during online promotions and has a two-year parts warranty.
The ProForm Premier 900 is the entry level model in its series and is mainly meant for walkers. The more advanced Premier treadmill, the Premier 1300, is a better option for most runners; it has a longer track and a more powerful motor.
The ProForm Premier 900 makes it easy to train effectively. It’s loaded with professionally-designed treadmill workouts, plus it supports literally infinite workout variety with its iFit-enabled console.
First, the Premier 900 arrives with 30 workout programs. Designed by a certified personal trainer, each program controls the treadmill’s speed and incline to take the guesswork out of efficient exercise. You can choose from programs that emphasize weight loss or performance.
Second, the ProForm Premier 900 Treadmill is iFit-enabled. With an iFit membership you can connect your tablet computer to the treadmill and download unlimited workouts. A top option is using Google Maps™ workouts, which replicate real-life routes by adjusting the treadmill’s incline and delivering interactive Google Street Views. iFit also lets you download customized personal trainer workouts any time and provides hundreds of high definition video workouts. Some other iFit benefits are online racing, advanced data tracking and a calendar for planning your treadmill workouts.
An advantage of the Premier 900 Treadmill is that the console is iFit-enabled. With some other iFit treadmills (which are described as “compatible” instead of “enabled”) you need to purchase a special monitor. The Premier 900 lets your own tablet computer or smartphone serve as iFit’s control center.
ProForm Premier 900 Features
Exercise data are shown on a full color 7″ touch screen. For audio entertainment the Premier 900 is smartphone-compatible, too. Connect your phone to the console and enjoy your tunes with the treadmill’s 2″ speakers. Additionally this treadmill has a secure holder for your tablet computer. The holder has an adjustable angle to suit trainees of different heights.
ProForm treadmills offer power boosts with their automated inclines. On the Premier 900 Treadmill you can electronically tilt the incline up to 12%. Some benefits of incline training include speedier calorie burn, enhanced muscle toning and less stress being put on your joints. As described above the ramp can also be controlled by iFit’s Google Maps™ workouts to simulate the rise and fall of real landscapes.
The tread track is the industry’s standard size for walkers (55″ x 20″) and has ProShox™ cushioning, which significantly reduces impact when compared with walking on grass or pavement.
A workout fan is built into the treadmill console. It has two speeds to help you stay comfortable.
This foldable treadmill has EasyLift™ Assist. You can quickly and easily fold the treadmill after a workout, then unfold it by simply stepping on a pedal.
