ProForm Power 995i Review
The ProForm Power 995i is the younger brother to the highly rated ProForm Power 1295i. When we say younger, it comes without some of the bells and whistles but overall provides great value for the price.
The ProForm Power 995i is a more than capable treadmill for those looking to do some heavy running. It is powered by a strong 3.0 CHP Mach Z (™) Commercial motor. It allows for a smooth and quiet run, even at high speeds. It shares the same running surface and deck as the 1295i. Its running deck is fairly spacious at 51cm by 152cm and is supported with ProShox(™) cushioning. What’s the result? A run that’s not so taxing on your feet, knees and joints. We like that!
One nice-to-have this treadmill does not have is the 7-inch web-enabled HD touchscreen display that is included with the 1295i. Alternatively, the treadmill is equipped with a Round Watts LED display (which is pretty neat in and of itself) and also includes an integrated tablet holder for those looking to stay connected during their workouts. Further to this option for greater connectivity, the 995i is iFit bluetooth enabled, giving you access to iFit’s growing library of immersive workout videos led by certified personal trainers. Even without the iFit membership, the 995i comes with 30 workout apps adding variety and varying levels of intensity to your walks and runs.

- Stable tablet holder
- Ipod compatible audio
- Customer service has been noted as slow
- Lack of wireless heart rate monitor
- Paying full price regrettable as Pro-Form puts their machines on offer quite often
The ProForm 995i comes with:
- 5 year motor warranty
- 2 year parts + labour warranty
- lifetime frame warranty
ProForm has been around for over 30 years, so this is a well-built machine. It is a quality treadmill that can be had at a budget price. The lack of an HD display is one of its drawbacks but if you’re looking for that added bit of entertainment and own a tablet you should be fine with the integrated tablet holder.
Make sure to monitor the price on ProForm’s website as these treadmills can often be had on offer.
