Treadmill Review

Updated: 5-3-2018

The ProForm Power 1295i is a strong treadmill from the ProForm Power line of treadmills. With its strong 3.5 CHP motor, it is up to multiple, daily users of varying physical fitness levels. It has a challenging incline ability, ranging from 0% to 15%. With the ability to incline up to 15%, even a walking workout can be brought up in intensity without additional stress on your body. We consider the Power 1295i a good option for its price.

Price

The Power 1295i retails for $2,499 but often goes on sale for $1,299.

The Power 1295i Is Built For Users Who:

  • Want lots of workout options - There are 34 workout programs built into the Power 1295i. It is also iFit capable so you can unlock more workouts, personal trainers, meal planning help and more.
  • Like high-tech equipment - With a 7-inch, high-definition touchscreen, users can browse online while working out.
  • Need a well-cushioned treadmill - While the cushioning is non-adjustable, the ProShox™ cushioning on the Power 1295i is excellent.   


Why The Power 1295i Earned 4 Stars

We were pretty impressed with the features on the Power 1295i, especially for the sale price.
  • Strong motor - The Power 1295i comes with a 3.5 CHP motor. This motor has smooth action and is strong enough for multiple daily users.
  • Great versatility - Equipped with the strong motor and cushioned deck, the Power 1295i can appeal to everyone from walkers to elite runners.
  • High weight capacity - Along the lines of versatility, the Power 1295i has a high weight capacity of 350 lbs. Most of the more high-tech treadmills only have a 300 lbs capacity, so it is great that this is available to those who may be easing back into working out.

Overall, the Power 1295i is a good treadmill and should be one you should consider if the above are selling points you are looking for in a treadmill.

The Power 1295i has a lightweight, sturdy frame. Its crossbar keeps the console steady if you want to break into a run, and the treadmill arms are strong enough to lean on comfortably.

The side rails are slanted with textured bumps to help you keep your footing. We weren’t thrilled with the slanted side rails as it is possible to place your foot too close to the moving treadmill belt, but the rails did not hinder any of our testers.

There is also a good hydraulic system on the Power 1295i. It makes moving the treadmill deck up and down much easier. The rubber feet on the base of the treadmill cushion the descent of the treadmill deck as you can allow it to go down hands-free.

Bottom Line Review Of The ProForm Power 1295i

With so many treadmills out on the market, it can be hard to sift through them all to find the right one for you. One way we classify treadmills is looking at their cost versus the features offered. Using that method, the Power 1295i had a good price to features ratio.

For the sale price of $1,299, the Power 1295i has:

  • 3.5 CHP motor
  • 34 workout programs
  • 7” touchscreen
as well as other great features. These features were just as good in person as we tested this treadmill, which convinced us to recommend the Power 1295i as a good option for your future treadmill.
