Terrible customer experience

Comment:
While I personally do not have firsthand experience with this treadmill, it was not for a lack of effort.<br /><br />Based on the ConsumerReports testing, I excitedly purchased this treadmill directly on ProForm's website at what I felt was a fair price and their site showed the product as In Stock. From there the experience quickly went downhill. I was given a 3 week shipping estimate and the only further communication from the company was an e-mail trying to up-sell their warranty. The kicker is the pricing discrepancy of this product between ProForm's website and a very popular online company (won't say any names). Why would anyone pay up to several hundred dollars more for something and be made to wait much longer to get the product?<br /><br />After many attempted phone calls forcing me to sit on hold for >20 minutes before giving up and lack of reply to my e-mails I have attempted to cancel my order through an online contact us form. I have also read many online reviews of this company with very similar experiences in addition to missing parts.<br /><br />Bottom line is that it is almost impossible to communicate with this company and fulfillment times are terrible. I can live with products that break from time to time or even companies that occasionally slip on an order. It is how one redeems themselves and corrects the situation that can really set one company apart from another. In my mind, this brand has been seriously tarnished by how they handle orders.<br /><br />From a customer service standpoint (or lack thereof), I cannot honestly recommend anyone doing business with ProForm or Icon Health & Fitness. Buyer beware.

Comment:
I will have to re-review in a couple of months but my first impression is very favorable. The machine is solid and quiet. The controls are easy to operate for basic routines or manual operation. In my view you can't beat it for the price. I have not bought the iFit add-on but it looks interesting and I will probably try it in a few weeks (thus the re-review). As for the lack of weight calibration of the calories, the other reviewer is correct, no such thing in this machine. On the other it is really easy. I have made the calibration using industry formulas and have determined that the caloric reading is for someone 175lb heavy. So if you want a more precise calibration, take the reading, divide by 175 and multiply by your weight. That should get you pretty close to the correct calories.

Comment:
Didn't do enough research before I bought this, but the advertisements also mislead you to believe that the machine has a ton of features. You only have access to these features if you are subscribed to Ifit, which is $8-10 a month! This includes BASIC features like being able to program your work out such as mile or calorie goals. So it won't count down for you like a normal treadmill. The other basic feature it does not include is being able to input your weight and age so that the calorie count is accurate. I also use it to run long distances, and it always shuts off at about 12.5 miles which is extremely annoying. The machine is sturdy and I like the fan and the display, but I would NOT recommend it unless you want to pay for the subscription.
How long have you owned it:
