Product Pros And Cons

iFit LIVE is a cool new technology that connects your treadmill to the Internet (using the wireless in your home).
Once connected you can run or walk different trails all over the world (it uses Googlemaps and Google Terrain to simulate the trails). You can even map out your own course if you want. The 7″ full color console display window add an even more realistic feel to your workout, showing you landmarks and the scenery as you run trails.

You can download new workouts from Jillian Michaels of ‘The Biggest Loser’ TV show – where she coaches you through your workout
You can also track your activity and nutrition online to set goals and see how far you’ve come. Basically you’ll never run out of things to do on this treadmill.
2) Adjustable Cushioning Reduces Impact By Up To 33%
The Proform 2.0 comes with Protech adjustable cushioning. This means you can change the deck firmness to suit your taste. This cushioning also reduces the impact on your joints (compared to road running) by up to 33%. So if you’re a runner, it gives you some decent protection for your joints, back, knees and hips.
3) iPod Port With Speakers Built Into the Console
