- Though certainly not considered a paragon of excellence in the world of treadmills, the Proform 680 Trainer treadmill gets the job done. This treadmill only includes what's necessary to give you an effective workout without tacking on too many extras that you're probably not going to use. In other words, you're getting a somewhat solid treadmill at an affordable price which for a lot of first time buyers, is often sufficient. However, if you're considering doing any serious training of any sort such as preparing for a marathon, don't expect this treadmill to last.
Staying motivated for long enough to see results is probably one of the biggest hurdles one has to overcome in order to stay healthy. With the Proform 680 trainer treadmill, this hurdle has become just a little bit easier to overcome. The reason? Music. The built in Intermix Acoustics Sound system is one of the best audio systems for a treadmill anywhere. This music option is perfect for those who choose to workout using one of the 10 quickselect workout programs designed by certified personal trainers to give you amazing results.
Working out is certainly beneficial but it can be harmful too if you don’t protect yourself. Luckily, the Proform 680 was designed with the runner in mind with TreadSoft Max cushioning so your joints are not unnecessarily damaged. You also won’t be running on an underpowered treadmill with the powerful 2.8 HP motor drive. Combine this motor with quick incline and speed adjust keys on a 20” by 55” treadbelt and you’re sure to experience some pleasant workouts.
With a 20 year motor warranty and 1 year parts and labor warranty, the 680 Trainer can often be found for prices well below $100 which is really a steal. Get yours today from Proform.
