ProForm XT 70 Incline Trainer Review & Ratings

Share our review of the ProForm XT 70 Incline Trainer treadmill



Incline Trainers, such as the ProForm XT 70, provide a fat-burning workout like no other treadmill out there. Walking or running on an incline employs 133% more muscles as compared to a flat surface, and burns up to 4x the calories. The ProShox™ technology reduces impact up to 45%, making for a pain-free workout. The lower-end ProForm XT 70 is definitely a budget incline trainer, and you get what you pay for. But for the workout you get, it's really not a bad deal. Honestly although this incline trainer has some good features, you would be better off with a NordicTrack. NordicTrack does incline trainers very, very well. If you are looking for a similar priced incline trainer from NordicTrack, look at the NordicTrack x5i. It's an upgrade you won't regret. Use our treadmill coupon to save even more.


If you're looking for the best deal though we suggest looking into the NordicTrack x9i Incline Trainer. This is the incline trainer to beat and costs a bit more than the XT70. It has much better specs and a lot more features involved though and is definitely worth the extra cost. The XT70 can only go up to 20% whereas the x9i from NordicTrack can go all the way up to 40%! You can find the x9i for about $1,899. The tread belt length is much longer measuring at 20" x 62". This has a much better value on an incline trainer than just a normal treadmill. Incline trainers need more space because of their ability to incline to such a high degree. The XT70 from ProForm just isn't enough to do much on. The motor is also a big problem for the XT70. It only uses a 1.75 CHP motor, hardly enough power to maintain consistency through a high incline. The x9i on the other hand has a 3.0 CHP motor and runs faster, stronger, and overall just better.
