The SMART Pro 5000 by ProForm is an excellent mid-range treadmill with high-end tech and exceptional functionality. You get ProShox cushioning in the deck, a -3% decline to 15% incline, and 12mph max speed with a 3.75 max horsepower motor. When you buy a SMART Pro 5000, it comes with iFit for one year free. iFit is a subscription database of exercise classes, outdoor routes, and combo classes such as strength training, plyometrics and even yoga! iFit will stream directly to your SMART Pro 5000 on the gorgeous 10” touchscreen. All classes and routes are guided by personal trainers who cue, instruct, and give an overview of geography or culture in various exotic locations.

ProForm includes a 10-year warranty on frame, 2-year for parts, and 1-year for labor. The SMART Pro 5000 has a 300 pound weight capacity. One of our favorite things about this treadmill is it folds up when you are done! A locking mechanism holds the deck securely so it will not accidentally open. Release it via the foot lever on the underside of the deck and a hydraulic arm will drop it back gently to the floor. You do not need to guide or lower it down manually. This clears up floor space and makes the SMART Pro 5000 a great option for home use.

Some of our favorite features include:
Two nice fans in the console with four different power settings (low – med – high – auto).
Bluetooth speakers in the console
A lovely 10” touchscreen that is full color and pivots up and down for visibility
OneTouch controls on the console for both speed and incline
Manual controls that adjust speed by .1 and incline by .5 for more precise levels
Automated control so the treadmill auto adjusts speed and incline for you
Manual control that overrides automation at any point

The 3.75 max horsepower motor is quiet and capable. When running, there is a bit of foot noise but minimal motor noise. The 5000 transitions between speed and incline settings smoothly so you never lose footing or feel off-balance.

We recommend this as a great machine for walking, jogging, running or even some HIIT training! Check out the SMART Pro 5000 today and explore its many features.
