Verdict: Recommended  

The Proform 1050T treadmill offers some higher end features for the more discerning exercisers. Highlights include a strong 3.0 HP motor and a long 60″ deck.

The iFit workout cards will let you add even more workouts (in addition to the 20 calorie burning workouts) and the iPod dock lets you play your favorite tunes.

The price jumps around a bit. If you can get it under $1000 it’s a decent deal. However at the price above it really makes more sense to go with a higher end Nordic Track treadmill or even a Sole.

Product Pros And Cons

Proform 1050T Treadmill

1) A Step Up From the 790T Treadmill

The Proform 1050T treadmill is similar to the popular 790 T treadmill with a stronger 3.0 HP motor (vs 2.5), higher 12 speed limit, longer 60″ belt and 4 more quick calorie burning workouts.

2)  Listen To Your Favorite Music While Working Out

You can plug in your iPod or Mp3 player and listen to your favorite music through the built in sound system. 

The 2.0 Intermix Acoustics sound system is one of ICON’s more advanced speaker systems – the sound is much better than many similar treadmills with music ports.

3) iFit Workout Card Compatible For Interactive Personal Trainer Workouts

iFit workout cards offer 8 weeks of personal trainer workouts (per card).

You insert the card directly into the treadmill’s console and the program will automatically adjust your speed and incline to fit the workout’s goals.  The voice of a personal trainer talks to you through the speakers, guiding you through the workout.

4) Burn More Calories with 20 Quick Calorie Burning Workouts

You can choose the number of calories you want to burn and the treadmill will adjust the speed and incline of your treadmill to meet that goal. There are 16 workouts and you can choose to burn from 200 – 750 calories.

5) Strong 3.0 HP Motor With Lifetime Warranty

This is a very strong motor power – especially considering the price point. Plus it’s covered by a lifetime motor warranty which gives you added protection since the motor can be the most expensive part of the treadmill to fix.

6) Backlit Console Makes Workout Stats Easier To Read

Many consoles on economy treadmills can be difficult to read. The Proform 1050 treadmill comes with a blue backlit console that makes it easy to see your workout stats. There’s also a racetrack function so you can monitor where you are in your workout.
