ProForm SMART Pro 2000 Review
Last Updated: March 28, 2021
The ProForm Pro 2000 is one of two Pro series treadmills currently available in the UK. It’s suitable for both home and commercial use and has a good combination of features to ensure convenience, comfort, and entertainment, all at a reasonable price point. It precedes the Pro 5000, which features a few upgrades at a higher price.
Here’s everything the Pro 2000 has to offer:
- 7-inch Full-Colour Touchscreen
The Pro 2000 has a touchscreen built into the console so you can enjoy iFit features and keep an eye on your workout stats. It’s 3 inches smaller than the display on the Pro 5000, but the functionality remains similar.
- iFit-integrated with Free 1-year Membership
iFit Coach now comes free for a year with the Pro 2000. The app has plenty of attractive workout options like virtual running locations, live personal training under world-class professionals, fitness challenges, and a massive library of workout videos. Moreover, it also tracks stats such as activity, nutrition, and sleep.
- Wide Range of Speed and Incline
Both the Pro 2000 and Pro 5000 offer plenty of speed and incline options. The speed limit is 22 km/h, enough even for professional athletes. Moreover, you can adjust the running deck’s angle from a 3% decline to a 15% incline. Higher incline levels will enable you to accelerate calorie burn, even at low speeds, while lessening the impact on your joints.
- 3.5 CHP Motor
The Pro series treadmills don’t disappoint when it comes to motor power and are best if you need a sturdy piece of equipment for serious training. The quiet, self-cooling motor is suitable for heavy use, and 3.5 CHP should be enough to provide long term at-home use. We’ve heard of a few rare complaints of the motor breaking down after a couple of years. These are rare and should be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
- Oversized Running Deck
Even the tallest of runners don’t have to worry about falling off the belt. The Pro 2000 offers a belt of similar dimensions to its older brother. At 55 x 152 cm, there’s ample leg and elbow space. Moreover, ProShox cushioning can add comfort by providing shock absorption for joint protection.
- Convenient Folding Feature
Foldability is usually a must-have for a home treadmill where you need free floor space. The running deck of the Pro 2000 folds up with a gentle push, thanks to EasyLift™ Assist technology, enabling compact storage when not in use.
- Heart Rate Monitoring
Track your heartbeat with the console reading that appears within seconds of grabbing the EKG handlebars. Alternately, the Pro 2000 is compatible with BLE Chest Belts, although it doesn’t come included with the purchase.
- Other Features
The CoolAire™ workout fan with two-speed settings, integrated adjustable tablet holder, dual speakers, iPod Connectivity, and large 2.5” durability-extending rollers together serve to enhance your workout experience.
