These products are produced by Icon Health and Fitness. They are the largest retail fitness company. This is one of the original Icon brands and can be found in most mass merchants. They typically range between $500 and $1,000 and have short warranties for the most part, although we have seen a shift in regard to that on mainly motors in some units. The gee-whiz factor is high on these machines because they are packed with features. We wouldn’t recommend these for serious runners but the quality of the machine is so much better than the ones produced just a few years ago, most people who are walkers or occasional users will be satisfied with the new Proform models.
Quality / Philosophy
Proform is produced by Icon, and this factory has over 200 engineers that help craft their products. Put simply, they are the best designed treadmills in the business. In the past, they have had to be the best because they used the cheapest parts in the business. They have finally discovered that you can find some of the key component parts overseas for less and the eventual cost is less if you put more quality into the machine; so the quality of drive motors, rollers, and other key components are much higher than in the past and it still sells for a value price.
Icon is the largest fitness equipment producer in the world with around $1 billion in sales. In terms of stability, they are the best but overall, their customer service isn’t up to the standards of some of the lower volume producers. Although they have told us they are upgrading their service, it is still a long road to what we would consider good. Although you get a value price for the product, you also get value service so keep this in mind when buying their machines. Due to the sheer number of units they produce, we pick up support in many cases where this factory leaves off.
ProForm 415 Crosswalk Review
The 415 Crosswalk Treadmill is a very basic and inexpensive machine manufactured by ProForm and typically sold by retailers like Sears. This particular model can be found for just under $400. Quite a deal, but you’ll get what you pay for.
The 415 Crosswalk uses a patented SpaceSaver design that allows users to fold the machine vertically in a single step. In addition to the folding frame, this model is also quite compact with a running area that is 18″ wide and 50″ long (the average is typically 20″ wide and 60″ long). The total weight is just 170 pounds. Since this is a lightweight model, the rollers are predictably small at just 1.9″.
Unlike traditional treadmills, this model features the CrossWalk arms design that allows users to work the upper body while walking. A treadmill offering a total body workout is certainly rare in this price range.
The motor is a 2.0 CHP Mach Z that can withstand user weights of up to 300 pounds. There is also a protective cushioning deck designed with ProShox Cushioning support. If you want to workout on an incline, this model provides one of up to 10%. The speed capabilities of this model top out at 10mph. To make speed or incline changes, there are quick keys on the console in addition to the usual up/down arrows.
To display workout data like time, distance, and calories burned, there is a 5″ x 7″ LCD screen. The console area is pretty bare, featuring only the basics like cup holders and an MP3 compatible sound system (sadly no cooling fan though). There are 16 built-in workout programs to choose from and a built-in dual-grip EKG heart rate monitor to track your ticker.
The warranty package includes 5 years coverage on the frame and motor as well as 90 days on parts and labor.
What We Like:
- CrossWalk Arms Design: Having the ability to work the upper and lower body at the same time will expand your calorie burning potential. The CrossWalk arms also bring more variety to workouts.
- Folding Design: This model uses the patented Space Saver Design for easy vertical folding in one easy step. This is important for users with limited space.
- Price: Few other treadmills can be found at this price point. This model is available at retailers like Sears for as low as $391. However, you will sacrifice features and quality parts for this price.
- Program Variety: 16 built-in workout programs isn’t bad for a model well under $500. Users can choose from a number options to meet personal fitness goals.
ProForm 415 Crosswalk Treadmill – Key Specs:
What We Don’t Like:
- Display Screen: This incredibly small display screen is quite narrow and the readouts are fairly small. It’s undeniably difficult to read in the middle of a workout.
- Warranty: This is one of the worst warranty packages that we have ever seen and that’s a huge red flag.
- Assembly: Many people have reported problems when trying to assemble machine, mainly due to being stuck with an off-center running belt or how time consuming the process is in general.
The ProForm 415 Crosswalk Treadmill is a cheap and low grade treadmill that isn’t even worth the $371 asking price. Admittedly, that price is quite attractive (especially considering the CrossWalk arms design), but take a moment before purchasing this treadmill to remember that if a deal sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Fortunately, ProForm offers many excellent treadmills. You may need to spend a few hundred dollars more, but it’s worth it. Consider the ProForm Pro 2000, an award-winning treadmill that is one of our “Best Buys”.
