Proform Performance 600
Reviewed by TreadmillReviews.com
The ProForm Performance 600 came out on November 2010. It’s a little outdated, but it’s still a strong model in comparison to others. It features their ProShox™ Elite 2 Cushioning which helps your joints and gives a more comfortable workout. It works with iFit Live™, but we wouldn’t suggest actually including it for this model as the screen display would not fare that well with it. Unfortunately you would miss out on the iFit Live feature that lets you workout with trainer Jillian Michaels and the Google Maps, but you would at least save some money on the cost. If you want the iFit Live feature you would be better off finding a model that actually includes it in the price. That way you know for sure that the model is really meant for the iFit Live feature.
With Nike + iPod® you can also work out and sync your results online at NikePlus.com. The Performance 600 also has 16 preset programs and a nice space saving design. We much prefer this model to the 590T as it has more power, better cushioning yet similarly priced. This model used to be the winner of our Best Value Treadmill. Check out our current featured best buys and their treadmill reviews here. For the price this is simply one of the best values you can find for a treadmill. That is why it had won Best Buy award for Best Value. Unfortunately this model is being quickly outdated and there are some other models out there that offer more features and a stronger motor.
A newer model from ProForm has been released that effectively replaces the Performance 600. That model would be the Power 795. It’s similarly priced, but has slightly longer tread belt. If you’re looking for features however, we suggest that you look to pay a bit more for the Performance 1450. It’s a solid model with outstanding specs, and has amazing features built-in. The 1450 was made for the iFit Live feature so its full-color 10″ touch screen does great with the program.
