ProForm came up with the Power series of treadmills after successful sales of their Pro and Performance series. The reason behind the great popularity of their exercising equipment is that they are long lasting, durable and give faster and desired results in no time.
Today we will talk about another treadmill by ProForm, the ProForm Power 1495 Treadmill. It has a 10” full sized color LCD display shows a lot of data of your workout such as time, speed, and calories burnt, distance covered etc. The treadmill has many other features too which we will explain as follows.
Quick Speed Control (0-12 MPH)
Speed is probably the most important thing in a treadmill, because when you cannot run on a treadmill then what’s the point of it? And faster speeds help increase your stamina. The Power 1495 support faster speeds up to 12 MPH. Not many treadmills support this much higher speeds but you should be happy to know the ProForm Power Treadmill can easily handle it.
This is because the machine has a strong and powerful 3.5 CHP motor which won’t heat up or burn out, even how hard you run on it. The speed can be easily adjusted from the Quick Speed button which is there at the control panel.
