Proform 505 CST Treadmill Review

  1. 1. Proform 505 CST Treadmill ReviewProform 505 CST Treadmill - Weve had it for about 72 hours now. We didnt buy it fromAmazon, but paid a similar price. We splurged and had someone deliver and assemble it.Considering the man does it all day, every day....and it still took him over two hours tocomplete assembly, Id say it was money well spent!Buy the Proform 505 CST Treadmill Here Save $400 at Amazon (free shipping available!)We are NOT runners by nature, so take this review for what its worth, as my opinion isgoing to vary from people who are already capable of running marathons.We are overweight, but not obese, this machine is supposed to be able to handle up to300lbs, but neither of us approach the limit.That said, this machine is very stable, even when Im not exactly the most graceful ofpeople jogging on it. The water in my water bottle doesnt even twitch. Its not whisperquiet, but you can hear your music or the TV over it well enough, at a slightly elevatedvolume. Some Proform 505 CST Treadmill FeaturesThis Proform 505 CST Treadmill unit DOES NOT include the iFit module, which is,currently, another $120-$130 to buy - the service/website is then free for the first year andthen $80/year after that.We went out and bought that today. Were still putzing around with settings, but you can
  2. 2. configure it to update onto Facebook and it tracks all of your workouts.You can have two different users on a module, so my wife and I will be tracked separately.You can track your calorie intake and burn, with commonly eaten food calorie countsavailable right on the website and the option to input calories on a freeform basis.There are spots to keep track of your measurements, etc. As you can see, its a pretty niftyoption...that DOESNT come standard with the unit and, honestly, was one of the mainreasons we bought this machine, thinking it did.There is an iPod jack and wire that jacks into the headphone jack of your iPod. Playback isok on the treadmill speakers. Its a little tinny, but...yeah, its a treadmill not a stereocomponent. It beats having the earbuds in, at any rate. Some Proform 505 CST Treadmill ConsThe one thing that I really dont like about this unit is the very oddly shaped, cubish, fairlyshallow cubbies for water/remotes/whatever.I have a 24oz waterbottle and it just doesnt sit in there right. I was worried it would fall outwith the vibration but, as I mentioned earlier, the water doesnt even move at a slow jog.(I havent gotten up any higher than a slow jog just yet...) and the cable remote also sitsstrangely in the other cubbie.I would have preferred a dedicated, obvious drink holder. As for the remote, I think Imgoing to get a bit of adhesive backed hook and loop fastener to solve that problem.The 10% incline and the max speed on this unit more than serves the need of two fairlysedentary people just getting back into being active.If youre already all big and bad and buff, youre probably going to want to keep looking forsomething else thats designed for your needs. All in all the Proform 505 CST Treadmill is areally good entry level machine.Buy the Proform 505 CST Treadmill Here Save $400 at Amazon (free shipping available!)
