Proform 995 SEL Treadmill Review – Don’t Buy Before You Read This
Posted On June 26, 2022
Is the Proform 995 SEL treadmill right for you? First things first…this particular model has been
disrupted. If you want it you will have to buy it used or reconditioned.
This doesn’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t buy it, just that it will be more difficult to get replacement parts for it.
So is it a good buy? Here’s a review of the 4 critical features to help you figure it out.
Why not start with the most important feature of all? This model sold new for about $700…so obviously you can get it cheaper when you buy used.
This is a very cheap price, but do you sacrifice quality? That is what you are about to discover.
It has a 1.75 “continuous duty horsepower” motor. This one is a bit larger than the cheaper models…but still not strong enough for anything other than walking.
The Proform 995 SEL treadmill comes with ‘iFit’ technology. This is a system that allows you to download “custom” exercises from the Internet directly to your treadmill.
It’s a nice feature, but in all honesty, it’s overrated. After all, you could accomplish the same thing by simply going online and exercising yourself. No need to pay extra for this.
It has good cushioning, and you can adjust it from soft to hard depending on your preference. This is a rare feature that is quite useful.
This machine is quite heavy… but it can be folded and stored so that it does not take up much space.
The verdict–Like most of the company’s machines, the Profom 995 SEL treadmill is best suited for lighter users who want a “walking only” machine. If you weigh more or plan on running a lot, you’ll need a better model.
