ProForm 680 LT Treadmill Review
ProForm have been making fitness equipment for many years and stay at the forefront of technology and design. They became first known for their innovative space saver treadmills and now make all kinds of equipment. They have remained at the forefront of technology and design and are still very much expert at making treadmills. This ProForm 680 LT treadmill is a good example.
The speed goes to 10 mph and the incline 10%. These are controlled at the touch of a button from the console. This gives you a good range of workout options. You can get a gentle or hard uphill climb while running or walking. The speed is more than enough at 10 mph maximum when you consider jogging is 6 mph as average for most. So beginners or experienced runners will feel happy using this treadmill.
There are 16 iFit personal workouts. These are designed by personal trainers and talk you through your run using the inbuilt speakers. You can purchase additional cards which can give you weeks of personal workout sessions tailored to the type of workout you choose. These range from calorie burn to performance to Jillian Michaels weight loss (the “Biggest Loser” weight loss television show host).
As you run you can get a reading of you heart rate using the heart rate monitor built into the handlebars. This will tell you how your body is performing. There’s also a music port that can take an ipod or other mp3 device so you can have your favorite running music played through the inbuilt premium speakers. You can even control the volume from the buttons on the console.
A feature you’ll find very appealing is the built in workout fan, this blows a cooling breeze on you as you run. Combine this with a cushioned running deck that gives you a 15% kinder run compared to the impact of a road. This makes a big difference to how far and long you can run for as you’ll find the run easier. This is great for beginners, the overweight or older people. Overall the ProForm 680 LT is a treadmill that provides a lot of features at a great price that we’re sure you’ll appreciate.
