ProForm Performance 400c  Folding Treadmill Review

Recently, the ProForm brand has released a new version of the entry-level treadmill called the “Performance 400c.” This treadmill could hold up to 300 pounds of weight and the length capacity of its track is 55”. Considering that, this treadmill is ideal for those whose weight is average, but are still interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

It’s also very affordable and has 18 built-in workout programs that could assist with your workout routines. Likewise, you could also use the iFit Live module by paying $99 and you’ll have the privilege of customizing your workouts, get advice from some of the most famous fitness coaches, and the other features it has.



Notable Features:

– Workout Programs
The Performance 400c has 18 built-in workouts, with speed, distance, and calorie-burning goals. Aside from that, you could also connect your treadmill to iFit Live and enjoy its numerous features, such as the virtual training coaches. Likewise, it’s also powered by Google Maps, that could motivate users to work out even more, because it simulates the actual terrains.

– Space Saver Design
It’s perfect for those who live in apartments or doesn’t have much space. You could easily fold the treadmill once you’re done using it. Thanks to Shock-assist technology.

– Automatic Incline
With the incline feature, you’ll be able to burn more calories in a shorter amount of time. Likewise, it could tilt up to 10% and it’s also adjustable depending on the iFit workout that you’ve chosen.

– Heart Rate Monitor (Dual Grip)
Even though this isn’t as accurate as the wireless monitors, it’s still useful to keep track of your heart rate during exercise.

– Cushioning
For an affordable treadmill, we could say that the type of cushioning it has is quite outstanding. It could actually minimize the stress on joints by up to 28%

– Audio
You could play your favorite music or listen to the latest podcasts while doing your workout. The 400c has 2.0 Intermix Acoustics speakers that ensures the quality of sound.

– Workout Fan
To keep your body cool during workouts, it also has a 2-speed fan.


Performance 400

– Multi-window Console
Monitor your time, speed, calories burned, and other data with the multiple data windows of the 400c.

– Warranty
It comes with a lifetime warranty for the frame; 25-year warranty for the motor; and a year warranty for the parts.

What We Don’t Like:

– Track Length
As compared to other treadmills, the 400c has a shorter track length. It’s only 55” long and 20” wide. Which means, it’s most beneficial for walkers with shorter strides.

– Motor
Most treadmills have a lifetime warranty, but the 400c only offers around two decades worth. Likewise, a lot of customers complain about its 2.75 CHP motor.

Final Verdict:

This treadmill is ideal for beginners and for those who don’t take cardio workouts seriously. Likewise, this isn’t really meant for running, because the motor isn’t built for that and it has a shorter track. If you just want to maintain your weight, this could help you with that.

However, if you’re eying on something that has more capabilities, then it’s best to check the treadmills made by Nordic Track and Sole.
