Proform Performance 400 Review & Ratings

Share our review of the Proform Performance 400 treadmill


The Proform Performance 400 is a great buy if you're looking for something affordable and fun. If you are a beginner or intermediate, this will be everything you need. The treadmill is fairly lightweight machine made for the budget price range. The weight capacity, rated at 300 lbs maximum, is lighter than the higher-end units. The motor is a 2.25 CHP engine. That size engine isn't going to last as long or perform as well as the heavier motors, but as stated earlier, if you're a beginner, and you don't run very hard or frequently, it should work for you okay. 

Power 400 ConsoleThe Proshox cushioning helps keep your joints from aching by using little air shocks underneath the deck to give it some give. The console has multiple LED windows to display your stats. It also has a workout intensity control that lets you increase or decrease the intensity of your workout with one button. The treadmill can go up to 10 MPH maximum speed, and 10% maximum incline. With that you can get some intense workouts going. 

The Power 400's cushioning system is not as powerful as the higher priced ProForm Power 995 and ProForm 1450, but it does the job well enough to reduce some impact on your joints. This treadmill is significantly less costly than the others, but lacks in the number of different workout programs (only 15) and motor power (2.25CHP). It also does not have as high of an incline as the others maxing-out only at 10%. 


Overall the treadmill is a great price, but only by sacking some extra features that are in a lot of other treadmills. If you're looking for a treadmill with minimal features that will do the job and be fairly reliable, then the Performance 400 would be a good choice for you. In our treadmill reviews, cheap treadmills don't usually do near as well as the Performance 400.
