Everything You Need in a Treadmill
The ProForm PRO 4500 Treadmill is ProForm’s top of the line. With its 4.2 chp motor and 60” commercial two-ply tread belt, it is plenty big and plenty powerful. But what really makes the PRO 4500 stand out is its thirty-eight personal trainer workout programs, including two high definition video workouts. It is iFit Ready, so, with the optional iFit signup, you can run the virtual world with Jillian Michaels and Google Maps. Comes with the Polar Wireless Chest Strap standard, so you can see your heart rate displayed on the monitor without gripping the handles. But its not just a monitor, its an Android browser that connects you wirelessly to the Internet. You can work on your computer while you work out! Very heavy 400 lb. weight capacity, unusual for a home treadmill.
The ProForm PRO 4500 features a 10" full color Android-powered touch screen browser that connects to you home wireless network. That means you can do anything online that you can do on your computer, while working toward your fitness goals! The outstanding features of this machine are many, like the iFit Live built-in iFit Tablet, iPod and MP3 player compatible music port, and 8” workout fan. But that’s just the fun stuff. The workouts feature Jilliian Michaels’ personalized 8 week programs. The motor has commercial bearings and brushes and is very quiet. The long 60” 2 ply tread belt is very tough and is built to last. Not only does the PRO 4500 incline up to 15%, it DEclines up to 3%!
The lifetime warranty on the motor tells you what you need to know about its quality. Spin balanced and outfitted with high end brushes and bearings, the commercial motor is built to last. Similar quality is found in the large 3” rear roller, which is precision-machined and non-flexing, just like the treadmills in the gym.
Note: The PFTL16213 is the updated version of the PFTL16011.

I'm very happy with the PRO 4500. Costs much less than similar models too. Samantha Crenna on 22nd Oct 2012
