ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill Review


No matter your experience level, The ProForm Pro 2000 is a solid treadmill for walkers, joggers, and runners across the board. It boasts a 60-inch running deck, a solid speed range of zero to 12 mph, plus incline levels of -3 to 12 percent. If you’re looking for a touchscreen display, the Pro 2000 treadmill may be for you. It comes with a 10-inch, high-definition screen on which you can stream iFit workouts from across the globe. 

This treadmill is meant for those who love having high-tech features incorporated into their workouts but don’t want to pay a super premium price for the most advanced tread on the market. Another modern feature here is Bluetooth compatibility for both headphones and heart rate monitoring. Plus, the shock absorption and hydraulic lifting system for folding are great touches, as well. If you’re looking to incorporate virtual training into your running schedule but want a tread that is still reasonably priced, the ProForm Pro 2000 is a great option. Whether you’re new to running or are training for a marathon, this treadmill can fit seamlessly into your routine. 

Main Takeaways

This treadmill comes with a fan, heart rate monitoring, and a built-in touchscreen display that allows you to run along with on-demand iFit workouts.
You can fold up the treadmill when you want it out of the way, and with EasyLift Assist, you won’t break your back folding up the 20- by 60-inch running deck.
Run anywhere from zero to 12 mph with a -3 to 12 percent incline. The treadmill can adjust its speed and incline automatically during iFit workouts as well, if you choose to use that feature.

ProForm Pro 2000

This treadmill is ideal for anyone who wants a touchscreen display, shock absorption, heart rate monitoring, and a hydraulic folding system. Plus, it comes at a reasonable price.

ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill Highlights

The Pro 2000 is powered by a 3.25 horsepower motor, which can support beginning power walkers to more advanced sprinters (up to 12 mph). Another feature that makes it easy on the body is its deck suspension. The treadmill’s shock absorbers will make sure that when your feet hit the running deck, it’s low impact. For on-demand workouts, you can use the treadmill’s 10-inch touchscreen that can display iFit workouts (which you can try out for 30 days, completely free with your purchase). 

Another cool feature of the ProForm Pro 2000 is its Bluetooth compatibility. While you can blast your iFit workouts from the dual two-inch built-in speakers, you can also use Bluetooth headphones. And while you can use a Bluetooth heart rate monitor as well, if you prefer, the treadmill comes with built-in heart rate monitoring in two ways: either through an included chest strap or through the handlebars. 

Heart rate variability can help you assess your recovery, current stress level, and overall fitness level, so we love that ProForm makes it easy to track this data. However, you won’t be able to plug in a phone or tablet into the Pro 2000, as there’s no USB or HDMI port. And if you don’t renew your iFit membership after your initial 30-day trial ends, the built-in display will be of no use to you as you won’t be able to stream workouts on it. That being said, if you want a treadmill solely for a solid running experience and don’t want to spend any money on anything aside from the equipment itself, the Pro 2000 is a great option. 

Who Should Buy the ProForm Pro 2000

Someone who wants a foldable treadmill. The treadmill’s SpaceSaver design and EasyLift Assist helps lift the deck for you with just one push.
Anyone who wants their treadmill to adjust their speed and incline for them during iFit workouts. Of course, you can adjust the speed and incline manually, as well, anywhere from zero to 12 mph and -3 to 12 percent incline. 
Someone who wants to monitor their heart rate as they work out — this tread comes with a chest strap and handlebar sensors. 

Who Shouldn’t Buy the ProForm Pro 2000

Someone over 300 pounds. The maximum weight capacity on the Pro 2000 is 300 pounds, which is standard across treadmills. 
Someone who wants an incline of more than 12 percent. If you want to run on the highest of hills, check out our review of the NordicTrack Elite Treadmill, which has an incline of -5 to 40 percent — the most we’ve seen from a treadmill.
If you don’t value high-tech features, you can find less expensive options on the market. 


Currently, the Pro 2000 is priced at around $1,799 if you pay upfront, or about $47 a month over 39 months with zero percent APR. Shipping is free and there’s a 30-day return policy if you change your mind. 

While the Pro 2000 isn’t the least expensive treadmill we’ve ever tested, it’s definitely on the lower end in terms of cost. For example, its sister treadmill, the ProForm Pro 9000, costs about $2,299, and the only major difference is its touchscreen, which is 22 inches long compared to 10.

Now, let’s talk about the iFit memberships — the on-demand workout classes ProForm offers. The treadmill comes with a free 30-day trial of iFit, but be careful as the subscription will auto-renew unless you cancel it beforehand at a cost of about $39 per month (plus tax). But if you end up liking the iFit membership and want it to continue, you can save money by signing up for a longer period of time. A one-year membership will cost about $396 (which breaks down to about $33 a month), two years will cost around $699 (about $29 a month), and three years will cost about $899 (about $25 a month).

Overall Build and Quality

The Pro 2000 measures 35.3 inches wide, 77.3 inches long, and 59.6 inches high. The running deck is 20 by 60 inches, making it long enough for sprinting, and in the box, the treadmill weighs 262 pounds. But that doesn’t mean you’ll have to pick up all 262 pounds if you want to fold it up thanks to its SpaceSaver design. We love that the EasyLift Assist lifts up the deck for you, requiring only a push. Running on the deck is also easy on the joints thanks to its shock absorbers — you won’t feel a huge impact every time your feet hit the running deck, which can support runners of up to 300 pounds. And since the treadmill is powered by a strong, 3.25 horsepower motor, we felt good about the treadmill’s overall quality and build.


The Pro 2000 offers a 10-inch touchscreen display, a zero to 12mph speed range, a -3 to 12 percent incline range, as well as auto-adjusting speed and incline. With iFit workouts included in the touchscreen display, the treadmill will adjust based on the workout you’re doing. Of course, you have the ability to adjust the speed and incline manually, but we love that this feature takes the work out of it, if you prefer. The Pro 2000 works with Bluetooth and has heart rate monitoring built in via an included chest strap and the handlebars. Plus, there’s space to store water, a phone, or keys on either side of the touchscreen. 

Incline range 

The Pro 2000 has an incline range of -3 to 12 percent. Again, this isn’t the widest incline range we’ve seen from a treadmill, but it’s not the least, either; some treads we’ve reviewed only go from zero to 10 percent. 

Speed range

Run anywhere from zero to 12mph on the ProForm Pro 2000 — a standard range for treadmills. And make sure to do cardio after lifting for optimal muscle-building potential. 

Included workouts

Your 30-day trial of iFit (and longer, if you choose to keep paying or, at the very least, forget to cancel) includes more 16,000 live and on-demand classes. Now, what really sets the iFit memberships apart from, say, other workout streaming services is the fact that they’re shot around the world. The most extreme example? One iFit workout takes place on Mt.Everest.

IFit offers more than just running classes. It has over 60 different types of workouts, including cycling (if you have an exercise bike), HIITrowingyoga, and strength classes. Essentially, one membership will cover all of the workouts you’d want — a pretty good value for less than $40 a month.


You’ll watch your iFit workouts on a 10-inch, high-definition touchscreen display that lets you easily swipe through the different workout class options. 


If you prefer to use your speakers rather than Bluetooth earbuds, you’ll enjoy the two two-inch speakers on either side of the Pro 2000. 


Sweating is part of getting stronger, whether you’re sprinting on a treadmill or doing heavy deadlifts. So if you tend to sweat when you run, you’ll appreciate the treadmill’s built-in workout fan. You can even adjust the breeze level with the click of a button.

Heart Rate Monitoring

The ProForm Pro 2000 comes with a Bluetooth-enabled heart rate monitor chest strap. Or, if you prefer, you can monitor your heart rate via the handlebars’ EKG grip pulse sensors. 

HDMI, USB, and Other Inputs

If you want to charge your phone while you run, you’ll need to use another outlet, as the Pro 2000 lacks a USB or HDMI port. Make sure your devices, like phones and other fitness trackers, are charged beforehand. 

Bluetooth and Audio Options

Aside from the treadmill’s built-in speakers, you can also connect to any Bluetooth headset if you want to keep things quiet. 

Water Bottle, Cup Holders, Tablet and Phone Holders

Unfortunately, the latest 2021 model of the Pro 2000 does not have a holder for tablets, unlike the 2000 model. However, if you have the iFit membership, the 10-inch touchscreen should work just fine, and the 2021 model still has storage for a water bottle, phone, or any other small items you’d like to store while running. 

Product Specs

The Pro 2000’s motor size, running area, and speed range make it ideal for sprinters, along with power walkers and joggers. Typically, we look for treadmills with motor sizes of at least 3 CHP in order to allow for sprinting, not just running or jogging. Fortunately, the Pro 2000 went above and beyond in terms of its motor size, which has 3.25 horsepower. It’s right at the industry standard for running decks at 60 inches long, and it can support speeds of zero to 12mph, which is enough for most recreational athletes.

Motor Size

The Pro 2000 comes with a 3.25 CHP motor, meaning it’s ideal for all forms of treadmill exercise, including walking, power walking, jogging, or sprinting. The minimum for running is about 3 horsepower, so the Pro 2000’s motor should work no matter your cardio preference. 

Running Area

You’ll also have plenty of room to run on the Pro 2000’s 20- by 60-inch running deck. Running decks need to be at least 60 inches long to allow for sprinting, so you can really go up to 12mph (if you have the capability). 

Weight Capacity

This treadmill can support people that weigh up to 300 pounds, which is pretty standard across treadmills. 

Folding Options and Dimensions

Sometimes you want a treadmill that will get the heck out of your way, and if that’s the case, you’ll appreciate the Pro 2000’s folding capabilities. It’s easy to fold up the deck using EasyLift Assist. While you’ll still have to push the deck to fold it up, it’ll do most of the heavy lifting for you, so you can save your muscles for the barbells

Max Speed 

Run anywhere from zero to 12 mph on the Pro 2000, a standard range across most treadmills on the market today.

Electrical Requirements

This treadmill has a normal power cord, but you’ll need to plug it into a surge suppressor (which does not come with the treadmill) before you add the suppressor into a standard outlet. The outlet must have a 120-volt circuit that can carry at least 15 amps. Make sure you don’t plug any other electrical devices into the outlet unless they’re low-power (i.e a cell phone charger).


ProForm offers a generous warranty on the Pro 2000: 10 years for the frame, two years for parts, and one year for labor. However, you can extend that warranty with either a maintenance plan (about $139.99 for three years,) or a lower-tier standard service plan that costs about either $109.99 for one year, $139.99 for two years, or $179.99 for three years. 

Both plans include unlimited in-home repairs (shipping not required), and a parts and labor warranty on all manufacturer defects, plus wear and tear on parts. However, the maintenance plan takes things a step further with an annual performance and preventative maintenance check-up — hence its higher cost. 

Places to Buy

Buy the ProForm Pro 2000 directly through ProForm’s website. You can also find it on Amazon Marketplace.

Final Word

You should consider the ProForm Pro 2000 if you want to spend less than $2,000 on a treadmill, but still want high-quality features like a 10-inch HD touchscreen, a speed range of zero to 12mph, a 60-inch running deck, plus a 3.25 CHP motor. It’s also a good choice if you want to follow iFit workouts, which are for on and off the treadmill. If you have a small space to work with, you’ll appreciate the fact that the Pro 2000 is foldable. 

However, it may not be the best option for you if you want an incline above 12 percent, speeds above 12mph, or the largest touchscreen available on the market. This treadmill will also not work for you if you weigh more than 300 pounds, as that’s its maximum weight. However, overall, we think this is a solid high-tech treadmill that comes at a reasonable price compared to other comparable treads on the market. 


Is the ProForm Pro 2000 treadmill worth it?

The ProForm Pro 2000 treadmill is worth it if you value virtual training. Costing around $1,799 or $47 a month if you finance it for 39 months with 0 percent APR, it offers solid incline and decline, heart rate monitoring, and iFit compatibility. Plus, it’s got a sturdy build, so you won’t have to buy another tread for at least 10 years.

Can you use the ProForm Pro 2000 without iFit?

Yes, you can use the ProForm Pro 2000 without iFit. However, the treadmill comes with a 30-day free trial that will renew automatically once it’s up, so make sure to cancel it before the first month is over if you don’t want to pay for the membership.

How heavy is the ProForm Pro 2000 treadmill?

The ProForm Pro 2000 weighs 262 pounds in the box. This weight is middle-of-the-road when it comes to treadmill weights. That being said, the ProForm Pro 2000 product manual states that assembly requires two people. If you are unable to find someone to help you, you are able to hire an authorized service technician to assemble the treadmill for you.
