Not to be confused with the similarly named Proform 675 Elliptical, the Proform Treadmill Model 675 is a circuit-style machine designed for cross training. This is a relatively low-tech treadmill when compared to some of the more exciting choices in the home fitness market, and is more suitable for lighter use.
On the console you will find a backlit LED panel, a simple display with readouts for time, distance, calories and incline. In manual mode you can set off quickly by pressing the start button, or choosing one of the speed buttons. There are also increase and decrease controls to change your speed easily during your exercise program. Incline control is also within easy reach, with up and down buttons allowing changes of 0.5% each time. The display also shows a 1/4 mile track when it's in manual mode and the thumb pulse sensor measures your heart rate as you walk or run.
The Proform Treadmill Model 675 includes six interactive cross training programs designed to help you burn calories, while at the same time toning and strengthening your muscles. The six pre-set programs – two whole body, two upper body and two lower body – are assisted by the use of dumbbells and an inflatable exercise ball, which you need to buy separately. Similarly, the "optional" chest pulse sensor does not come as a standard accessory, you have to purchase this as an extra. You do, however, receive a pair of hand weights with the Proform Treadmill Model 675. The audio feature guides you through each cross training program with the voice of a virtual trainer, helping you to stay motivated.
One of the main attractions of the Proform Treadmill Model 675 is the folding feature. Manufactured by ICON Health and Fitness, the SpaceSaver® Design lets you store away the treadmill when space is at a premium.
Warranty on this model covers the motor for 10 years, with just 90 days for parts and labor.
Good points – a simple cross trainer treadmill with a convenient fold up design.
Bad points – not for strenuous use; the limited parts warranty does not instill confidence in this product.
Conclusion – shop around for alternative cross trainer treadmills before you rush out and buy the Proform 675.
