Treadmill Review

Last Updated: 9-22-2022

There are many things to love about the ProForm City L6. We love that it is an affordable option and can fold completely under a bed or stored in a closet and that it is compatible with iFit. This allows for unlimited workout ideas to keep you motivated. Considerations to take, such as its motor size, lack of incline, and limited accessories, limits its capabilities. Here at Treadmill Reviews, we have not tested this product yet, but we have tested many similar products such as the Echelon Stride.

Who The ProForm City L6 Treadmill is Built For

Walkers & Joggers

Whether you plan on doing long walks or jogs, the City L6 is built for those who want to get a great cardio workout in small spaces.

Those looking for an affordable, compact machine

Many new treadmills are equipped with many features and accessories that increase the price of production. We love that ProForm offers this treadmill that is basic and affordable, so you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars just to workout at home.

Those who value instructor-led classes and technology

One of the largest benefits of the ProForm L6 is the fact that it connects to iFit, a subscription service that provides thousands of workouts, on-demand and live. Simply connect the treadmill to your account and workout with fitness professionals all around the world through your own tablet or device.

Why We Love the ProForm City L6

Footprint and foldability: The size of this treadmill makes it desirable for those who are looking for an option to completely store away their treadmill under a bed. Plus, the footprint, while it is in use, is much smaller than treadmills that stay upright.

Price: This price point makes this treadmill accessible for those who are concerned with making a large purchase for a treadmill

High-tech compatibility: Stream live or on-demand workouts, store your stats, join challenges, and run around the world at your fingertips with your subscription to iFit and the City L6 treadmill.

Simple assembly: The treadmill comes completely set up, except for the tablet holder. Other higher-end models can take several hours to set up.

Limitations And Things To Consider Before Purchasing The ProForm City L6 Treadmill

When we review products, we want to be honest about all of the pros and cons we can find. These things may not mean “dealbreaker”, but they are some things to consider before deciding if it’s the right fit for what you are looking for. These include:

  • No incline/decline: there is no way to incline or decline this treadmill, so it may not be the best option for those looking for that feature.
  • No accessories: Many higher-end treadmills come with added accessories to make it comfortable. However, it is important to note that this treadmill does not include speakers, cup holders, fans, or an aux port.
  • Smaller motor: a smaller motor size could potentially limit the amount of use it can handle compared to other treadmills. But, ProForm is reliable, and based on the cost, we think it’s still a good option.

How Much Does the ProForm City L6 Cost?

This treadmill is listed at around $699 at the time of this review. This includes a 30 day membership to IFit.

This includes free shipping.

The features on this treadmill are minimal, which is on purpose. It is designed to be compact and basic, so there are no speakers, fans, or cup holders like larger treadmills have. On of the features we love is that it has a small tablet holder, which would allow users to connect to iFit and workout with instructors, without having the price tag of a larger treadmill with an integrated touchscreen. We also love that it has quick speed control buttons, making it easy to increase speed without having to hold the up arrow.
