Proform 8.0 ZT The Proform 8.0 ZT
Ohiyo! In the line-up for today we’ve got the Proform 8.0 ZT. It’s just a little fella, but we’ll see what it’s got packed into its little frame. For $599 if it’s any good at at all, it would be a great deal. Proform’s current models in the $599 price range are the Performance 400, and the 590T. This one is still in stock, and being sold, but isn’t being advertised or displayed. The 3 treadmills are very similar, but have their own unique and noteworthy differences.

The 8.0 ZT has a 2.25 CHP motor. Enough to power a 250 lb person up to 10 MPH or as low as .5MPH. Th edeck is too thin to trust a heavy person on. Anyone around 250 lbs or more running on it, would have a high chance of cracking or breaking it. Heavier runners, and consistent runners would need to fork out a bit higher of an investment if they want a treadmill that will last them longer than a few months. This is for light walkers or joggers.

The 8.0 ZT has a treadbelt with an 18″ x 55″ surface area. I can’t speak for everyone, but for myself, the standard 20″ x 60″ seems like just enough area, and anything less than that starts to make me a little uncomfortable. However, the problem is mostly in my mind I think. Cutting off 2 inches from the sides, and 5 inches from the back hasn’t really effected my running at all, it just feels a bit more cramped. It may not bother most people.

The features are the basics you’d want with any treadmill. The treadmill uses ProResponse Cushioning, it is a fold up, it has a handy little heart rate monitor, it has an Ifit compatible card. It provides you with 12 Built in workout programs, and the screen is a small Blue Tinted LCD.

Here’s a list for convenience:

  • 2.25 CHP motor
  • 10% Incline
  • 10MPH
  • 250 weight capacity
  • 18″ x 55″ belt
  • Pro Response Cushioning
  • Fold up, Heart Rate Monitor, Ifit
  • 12 Workouts, Blue LCD Display
  • Warranty: 7 year motor, 90 day parts and labor

With a warranty that short, if you buy this, be sure to be very gentle, and take good care of it. The warranty will be out soon, and you’ll be stuck with it, and repairs could cost half the price of the treadmill. I usually always suggest to go to a higher price range, you’ll generally save money in the long run. But it this is all you can do, then be nice to it and hopefully it will be nice to you.

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.
