Good Morning! What I have for you today is..(Drum Roll)…Another Proform!!! Woohooo! Right? Keep this up, and all you loyal fans of mine are going to be Proform Experts. One of the funny trends that I find growing is the little “Consumer Magazine Best Buy” Badge these treadmill companies stick on the images of their treadmills. Yet Which consumer magazine, I haven’t the foggiest, and what they said about the treadmills and when they rated them, who knows..All I know is there is a little “Best Buy” image next to the treadmill. If anyone ever finds a link to the supposed review, or a snippet of which magazine or which issue, let me know, but for now, I’ll just have to assume that it’s some magazine in Uganda that nobody ever has or ever will hear about.

Anyhow, regardless of amusing marketing schemes, this treadmill would have the potential to make it into the best buys of some magazines. With its low price, you get a decent machine. Despite the reviews I used to write about Proform and Icon machines, they have actually come a long way in the last few years to improve their treadmills’ durability, as well as extending their warranties. The motors are better designed to keep cool, and not break. Most of the motors have a lifetime warranty, however this one only lasts 25 years. If in 25 years you’re still using this treadmill, you’ve bought the machine of a lifetime. Chances are when you’re shopping in this budget range, if you’re constantly using it, you won’t have your treadmill for more than 5 years. That’s just based on average numbers. This is why it’s wise to decide if you want to spend more on a higher-end treadmill, in order to save on buying future treadmills or repairs. It’s up to you.

The 590T is a little above average when it comes to specs. The 2.25 CHP Mach Z motor is a fairly decent Icon motor. The RPMs aren’t through the roof like they used to be in these motors. The motor usually outlasts most everything else. If it does break they’ll replace it for you, but if it’s after the 1 year service warranty then you may have to install it yourself. They’ll send instructions to help.

The cushioning is a decent cushioning system. The Deck should be strong enough to hold 300 lbs. If you want to test out its real strength, make sure to do it before the one year warranty is up. After that you’re stuck with it. The noise is about average. Meaning it’s not silent by any means, but compared to most of the other budget treadmills in other brands, you can take your earplugs out.

The Frame is mostly made of plastic, but I don’t really mind that as much any more. If it breaks, it’s got a lifetime warranty on it, and usually the frame doesn’t break unless you’re really rough-housing on it, and slam against it or something. Here’s a list of its specs and features.

  • 2.25 CHP Mach Z Motor
  • 300 lbs weight capacity
  • 10MPH Max Speed
  • 10% Incline
  • 20″x55″ treadbelt
  • EKG Heart Rate Monitor
  • IFit Live Compatible
  • Fold up Space Saver Design
  • 15 Workout Apps
  • Ipod/Mp3 Port
  • Acoustics 2.0 Speakers
  • Warranty: lifetime Frame, 25 yr Motor, 1 yr parts/labor

If you’re earnestly looking for a good budget treadmill, and can’t afford to spend more than this, then this is a good machine to look into. I would recommend it. Hopefully this helps.

About My Treadmill Reviews

TreadmillMy treadmill reviews are both subjective and objective. They are objective in the sense that I will provide you with information about each machine, such as motor, weight capacity and other features. But they are subjective in the sense that I am really giving my opinion of each treadmill. You may agree or disagree with my opinion, but my hope is that my elliptical and treadmill reviews can be helpful to you in making a decision on what to buy. Remember that each review is just what I think. You can always check out Treadmill Doctor, Treadmill Review Guru or these other treadmill reviews if you want another opinion.
