One of my favorite pieces of home fitness equipment is my ProForm 745CS treadmill. My husband bought it for me as a gift after the birth of our first child so that I could exercise at home, get back in shape and watch over the baby. That was back in 2001 and I’m still using that treadmill today.
The ProForm 745CS treadmill has a pulse sensor, 6 built in certified personal trainer fitness programs, inclines to a 10% grade at .5% intervals, and has quick speed selector up to 10 MPH. The design makes working out convenient with it’s built-in water bottle holder, book holder and another spot that I use to hold the TV remote. And when I’m not exercising, the ProForm 745CS can be folded up, requiring less than half the floor space of an open treadmill.
Those were some some pretty impressive treadmill features back when we bought it, but it’s pretty basic equipment for ProForm treadmills now. (I don’t think ProForm even makes the 745CS treadmill any more.) These days, ProForm makes home treadmills with the TV built right in if you want it!
I’m thrilled with how well my ProForm treadmill has held up over the years. It has had some work done to it under the maintenance/service plan because the pulse sensory wouldn’t work for me, but I haven’t had to have any maintenance done on it for years now. I’ve used it relatively consistently and my husband has used it too. It has even been through two long distance moves on a moving truck. It really is a sturdy piece of machinery.
I will definitely buy another ProForm treadmill when the time comes, but for now mine is still going strong. I love my ProForm 745CS!
