The reviews didn't prepare me for this monster *** box that was dumped on my lawn. The delivery service understandably did not want to drag the pallet over bricks on my walkway so I was stuck with this immovable box on my lawn for two nights until I got a hand truck and two strong people to help move it downstairs. It is HUGE and even opening the box and removing a few small pieces doesn't lighten the load much. BE PREPARED to deal with that! As for assembly, the handbook is very clear but it's 16 pages of step by step assembly. Because of all of the electrical connections and sensitive pieces, I ended up hiring someone. Hire someone who has experience assembling electrical exercise equipment. this is NOT a piece of furniture, it's complex. It took an experienced assembler about 90 minutes to put it together. Finally, you will need a very specific surge suppressor for this piece. It took me multiple searches to find one that matches the specifications. This review is written before I have even set foot on the machine because if I had known about the problems with moving it and assembling it, I probably would have gone with something else. All said and done, it cost another *** to get it moved and assembled.
After reading the stats on ProForm 1000, and having been a member at my local gym, I must say, this treadmill offers much of the same, if not more, functions as the ones at my gym. I am very pleased with this product.
Start with 10 to 15 min a day then add ankle and wrist weights as you build your strength and stamina, you will feel it good cardio work out. Worth the price.
I bought this a month ago to add extra cardio to my workouts. So far I like it! It was pretty easy to put together. Easy to use. I like the orbital motion of the arms. You can make the tension easy for a a cardio workout or increase for a muscle working workout.
