Proform Pro 9000 Treadmill Review

ProForm Pro 9000 Review

Quick Summary

The ProForm Pro 9000 treadmill is the top model in the Pro series and is one of ProForm’s most advanced cardio trainers for 2017 with commercial grade features, plenty of power and extras you usually only find on high-end machines.  The Pro 9000 mixes a high-capacity motor (4.25 CHP) with one of the flashiest displays you’ll see on a 2017 treadmill: a 10″ wide high-definition touchscreen that not only shows preset workout programs, but also supports iFit Coach interactive training and has an Android browser.

The next step up from the Pro 5000, the Proform Pro 9000 treadmill adds a few more workouts for a total of 40, large deck and a very powerful, yet quiet motor. The 10″, full-color Smart HD touch screen monitor is top notch for everything from tracking your progress to surfing the web.

So please read the review bellow and find out if this 9000 model is for you.

Features

The Proform Pro 9000 Treadmill comes with a lot of features all aimed to provide a comfortable and satisfactory workout to its users.

Motor

The ProForm Pro 9000 treadmill is powered by a high quality 4.25 CHP motor that can handle long runs, interval training and heavy use in general. The motor is about 25% more powerful than any other non-Proform motor on the market today and benefits from high-grade wiring, insulation, and a thermal cut-off switch. High-end, commercial bearings and brushes are used to ensure a long, trouble free life.

Running Track

At 22 x 60 inches, this is one of the largest (and widest) belts Proform puts on their treadmills. Thanks of the comfortable ProShox™ material used on the surface, you can run for longer without feeling the effect on your legs.



iFIT technology

With iFit LIVE you can take your treadmill online, from there you can download new workouts from Jillian Michaels where she coaches you through your workout. You can also track and plot your workouts over time to see how far you’ve come.  iFit works with Googlemaps so, using the data provided by Google Maps, iFIT allows the user to recreate any route they choose with the treadmill’s computer automatically adjusting the incline up and down in order to simulate the actual terrain. You have the choice of selecting a pre-planed program or draw a map anywhere on the globe. iFit Coach is a paid subscription service with membership starting at $9/month. The Pro 9000 treadmill can run iFit Coach on its 10″ screen using your home’s wireless Internet connection. Some other benefits of iFit Coach are wireless stats logging, an HD video library for exercising with celebrity personal trainers and many more. Another benefit of iFIT is that new workouts are automatically downloaded to the treadmill every day during a set program.

Incline and Decline

Pro Series treadmills have maximum 3% decline and maximum 15% incline with electronic controls, this is a feature that is usually only found on more expensive, gym quality machines.  The deck decline has the benefit of activating different muscles by walking at a decline. This is claimed to burn more calories and stimulate more muscle for faster results.

Workout Programs

Proform Pro 9000 treadmill has nearly 40 training apps that automate the track’s speed and incline/decline. These are categorized as Speed, Distance, Calorie and Intensity workouts. Also, if you’re more experienced and you already know what you want to do, you can program your own workout, too.

Web-Enabled Display

The touchscreen is what separates the 9000 from the crowd. ProForm’s best display screen is built into the Pro 9000 treadmill console. New for 2017, this 10” touchscreen with web browser can show workout programs and the web in high definition and it has an Android browser. The touchscreen can even play YouTube videos and pull up full websites for you to browse.

Foldable

When not in use the deck on the Proform Pro 9000 can be folded upright to a near vertical position, so that the treadmill occupies a lot less floor space. An „Easy Lift” system utilizing a telescoping shock unit helps the user to lift the deck upright for storage and the deck gently drops back to the floor when unlocked for the next session.

Heart Rate Monitor

The Proform Pro 9000 treadmill is equipped with a Dual-Grip Heart Rate Monitor sensors that allow you to quickly and accurately monitor your heart rate. You can choose wireless telemetry (a chest strap is included) or use grips on the handlebars. A lot of people prefer the wireless heart rate monitor because it’s more accurate (and easier to use since you don’t have to keep grasping the hand sensors). The Proform Pro 9000 treadmill comes with a free wireless heart rate monitor included.

Audio

Also built into the console are an iPod-compatible 3″ speakers set, a two-speed fan and a tablet computer holder.

Cooling fan

This Proform Pro 9000 treadmill has a dual „CoolAire” workout fans incorporated into the control console to cool you off as you run, especially if you’re running in a hot room in the winter. The fan features multiple speed settings. You can press the fan increase or decrease button to select a fan speed or to turn off the fan completely.

Safety features

A safety key and lanyard is provided with the treadmill. This means that with the key withdrawn the treadmill cannot be operated by unauthorized users such as young children. The ProForm Pro 9000 does have a child-safety passcode, which disables access to console operations until you enter the correct 4-digit combination. Another unique safety feature for this treadmill is a safety screen timeout, which is where the console resets if it receives no interaction and the belt doesn’t move for an extended period of time.

The safety key has a lanyard with a small plastic clip attached to one end which can be clipped onto the users clothing. This way, if you were to fall, the clip would detach from the console and the belt would come to a stop.


Every part of the ProForm Pro 9000 treadmill says quality and durability.

Shipping and Assembly

The ProForm Pro 9000 user manual includes clear step-by-step written instructions, accompanied by exploded diagrams with parts references to show how each part fits together. ProForm even include most of the tools you need, including a hex key that can adjust the walking belt. If you can’t manage the process you cand easly apply for Amazon in-home assembly service.  If Amazon don’t have service providers in your area, you can sign up to be emailed when they become available.

Where to Buy and Save

If you plan on buying a Proform Pro 9000 treadmill, I suggest you buy from amazon.com because they offer the lowest price on the internet. It is currently on sale for just $1,999.00 and  you can also get Free Shipping to your home which can save you about $150.

PROS:
  • 4.25 CHP motor with lifetime warranty
  • High speed 12 mph
  • 10” HD full-color touchscreen
  • Spacious workout area (22″ x 60”)
  • Power incline and decline (-3% to +15%)
  • Chest strap for wireless pulse monitoring
  • 40 workout apps
  • iFit Coach enabled
  • Android web browser
  • iPod-compatible 3” speakers
  • Tablet computer shelf with grip
  • Foldable frame with hydraulic assist
  • Very good warranty

CONS:
  • There aren’t many downsides to the ProForm Pro 9000 model, maybe the Return Policy with 10 percent restocking fee.


Conclusion

If you have the money to spend, it’s hard for us to recommend anything other than the Proform Pro 9000. The materials used are top-of-the-line, there are so many features that other treadmills don’t have, and the warranty is very good, too. The ProForm Pro 9000 has the exact combination of workout and entertainment features we would hope for from a treadmill under $2,000.

If you want to save a little bit of money, take a look at the Proform Pro 5000 model, which is essentially the same machine with a smaller touch screen.  Everything else about the two treadmills is pretty much the same, plus/minus a few features.

But if your cardio training needs are lighter, another option is the entry level Proform Pro 2000, although that one doesn’t come with a web enabled touch screen, so you’ll have to use your tablet for the internet and Google maps there.

Thanks for reading our Proform Pro 9000 review and for visiting our site! Good luck!
