Summary ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill Review: The Bottom Line

This ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill review showcases everything you need to know about this model based our our extensive experience using it for years. The Pro 2000 is a midrange treadmill from ProForm. What makes it ideal for home use is its compact size, folding deck, and interactive training content.

The 10” touch screen offers streaming from iFIT with a subscription to include thousands of trainer-led workouts to guide you while training on the Pro 2000. Along with a vast library of indoor and outdoor-filmed, you can take advantage of hands-free training with each iFIT workout. The speed and grade of the deck automatically adjust for you, although the uncomplicated console is convenient to adjust the Pro 2000 when you want to.

Walkers, joggers, and runners should find value in the 3.25 CHP motor, 12 mph max speed, 12% incline, and -3% decline. The deck also accommodates all running stride lengths while still being compact enough to use this treadmill in most homes

Editor’s Note, 12/21/2023: This ProForm Pro 2000 review was updated to include our further testing and reviewing of this treadmill for the past almost 3 years.

What We Like

  • A subscription to iFIT includes thousands of trainer-led workouts, creating your own running routes, and auto-adjustability for hands-free training.
  • The deck is compact yet accommodating to all running strides, plus it folds when you’re finished.
  • Good deck cushioning to help lessen the impact on the joints while running.

Areas for Improvement

In-depth ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill Review: Testing & Analysis


We consider the ProForm Pro 2000 to be a compact treadmill for running. This means that this isn’t the smallest treadmill we’ve tested, and we certainly have tested more compact models for walking. When it comes to being able to handle most users for running though, the Pro 2000 checks this box. Its dimensions when unfolded are 77.3” L x 35.3” W x 59.6” H.

Along with this amount of floor space that the Pro 2000 occupies, you should factor in a few extra feet surrounding the treadmill, especially at the rear of the deck to use it safely. You’ll want some space in the back to fold and unfold the deck, too.

Proform Pro 2000 Deck Folded Up

The folding deck helps to cut down on floor space when you’re not using the Pro 2000.

To fold the deck, you lift the back end and push it up towards the console until it locks into place. The deck features a hydraulic system that kicks in when you lift the deck so you don’t have to lift its entire weight. To unfold, you press your foot against the vertical metal bar at the bottom of the deck. Once unlocked, the deck slowly lowers to the floor on its own. This allows most people to be able to fold and unfold the deck with ease.

Once folded, the ProForm Pro 2000 can be moved around when needed. It weighs around 262 lbs when it’s delivered in the box, so it’s a substantial weight. Most people should be able to tip back the deck when it’s folded to engage the transport wheels under the frame to move it.

In addition to floor space, ceiling height is also important to consider. The step-up height of the deck when it’s at 0% is around 10” high from the floor to the top of the side rails along the deck. For a 6-foot-tall runner, we recommend having at least an 8.5-foot high ceiling to utilize this treadmill’s features. For those who are shorter or taller than this, check out our article to determine the appropriate ceiling height for you when using the Pro 2000.

Onboard Workouts & Apps

Onboard workouts and subscription training content are commonly found on all types of treadmills. Subscription platforms are very popular and found on most fitness equipment. The ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill is enabled with iFIT which is a popular training platform. Here’s what to expect with iFIT on the Pro 2000, and what you get without iFIT.


iFIT comes enabled on ProForm’s fitness equipment. It is available to stream directly from the Pro 2000’s 10” touch screen. If you’re new to iFIT, a free 30-day trial is included with the Pro 2000. iFIT is $39 per month. If you purchase a 1, 2, or 3-year membership ahead of time with the ProForm Pro 2000 though, you can cut down on the monthly cost a little bit. 1-year is $396 which is $33 per month. 2-years is $699 which is around $29 per month. 3-years is $899 which is around $25 per month.

Here’s what is included with iFIT.

iFIT has an expansive library of fitness classes led by over 180 instructors. There are over 17,000 workouts available to take on-demand whenever you want. Each class features an instructor or two who lead you through a structured workout. There are workouts filmed in professional studios. These have a camera that points at the instructor while they provide guidance and motivation. They’re modeled after in-person studio fitness classes.

The outdoor classes are what sets iFIT apart. There are workouts filmed all around the world. From Costa Rica and Germany to California and Egypt, you can walk, jog, hike, and run in cities and remote areas all over from the comfort of the Pro 2000’s deck.

The camera follows the trainer, making it feel like you’re being guided on a tour. Pans of the surrounding landscapes are also shown throughout the classes to show you even more of the locations.

Proform Pro 2000 iFit Class

We love the outdoor iFIT workouts.

You can also explore areas all over the world on your own by creating your own routes using the Google Maps feature. This feature utilizes Google Maps so you can draw your own route in any part of the world. During your workout, Google Images pop up to show you the area as you go.

In every workout, your metrics are displayed at the top to track your progress. Music is also available to listen to in the background of each iFIT workout. The music isn’t integrated into any of the classes, unfortunately. There are stations that consist of different genres and each has preselected playlists of songs. The music seems to be updated fairly regularly and offers a good variety, but it would be nice to have some of the indoor workouts with music integrated into them.

Overall, iFIT is definitely worth it when it comes to subscription training content to use at home. Paying for a monthly subscription is kind of like paying a gym membership which can provide some extra accountability to help ensure you use the ProForm Pro 2000 regularly. There are also mat classes like yoga, strength training, and meditation that can be taken in addition to all of the treadmill workouts. You can also take iFIT on the go by using the app on your phone or smart TV.

Onboard Workouts

iFIT isn’t required to be used on the Pro 2000 Treadmill. Even though we highly recommend checking it out, it isn’t for everyone. Without iFIT, you can use the manual mode. This doesn’t even require a wifi connection to use. Manual mode is also available to use in iFIT with a subscription. Manual mode lets you do your own thing and adjust the treadmill as you go.

There is also a free featured iFIT workout available to take without a membership to iFIT. This gives you a preview of what using the platform is like.

Note: Netflix streaming and streaming from other 3rd-party apps isn’t available on the ProForm Pro 2000. You can’t stream outside content or browse the internet. iFIT is the only content available to stream on this treadmill.


The console is pretty straightforward to use on the ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill. It has everything you need. The main component of the console is the 10” touch screen. This is where you stream iFIT and track your workouts and metrics. It’s also how you view the treadmill’s current speed and incline settings.

The 10” screen isn’t the largest touch screen, but this size is on par with other treadmills in the Pro 2000’s price range. It’s the same size as the Sole F80 and NordicTrack 1250. It should be easy enough for most people to see. It isn’t very adjustable, beyond being able to slightly tilt the screen up and down. The 1250 and NordicTrack 1750, in comparison, have screens that pivot to either side. These treadmills also stream iFIT, so this feature makes using the screens for off-the-treadmill iFIT workout classes a little more convenient than the Pro 2000.

Proform Pro 2000 Console

Adjusting the Pro 2000 is pretty simple.

Below the screen, there are numbered adjustment buttons. The top row is for adjusting the incline, and the bottom row is for the speed in mph. When you press 6 on the top row, for instance, the inclines up to 6%. When you press 4 on the bottom row the speed adjusts to 6 mph. You can also press two of the numbered speed buttons back to back to adjust to more specific increments. For example, pressing 7 and 8 will adjust the speed to 7.8 mph.

Next to the start and stop buttons toward the bottom of the console are more speed and incline adjustment buttons. The incline buttons adjust the grade of the deck by 0.5% and the speed adjust by 0.1 mph.

With a subscription to iFIT, the ProForm Pro 2000 also automatically adjusts in every workout. The AutoAdjust technology adjusts the speed and incline of the treadmill to match the trainer’s cues and the terrain of the workout (if it’s filmed outside). iFIT also takes into account your prior workouts so it can suggest speed ranges that align with your fitness level. You can bypass this and adjust the Pro 2000 at any time, but this is a nice feature.

The speakers are front-facing on either side of the console. They are Bluetooth-enabled to pair with Bluetooth headphones. You can’t connect your phone or tablet to them though to play your own content through them. The speakers are clear and offer plenty of volume when streaming iFIT. In iFIT, you can adjust the volume to hear more or less of the instructor’s voice and the music.

The fan is at the very bottom of the console. It is positioned a little low and it’s in a fixed position so you can’t adjust the airflow. It does have multiple settings for the airflow so you can adjust how strong the breeze is. I’m 5’1” and it hits my neck. It’s a little low for taller folks.

There are two cupholders to hold your water bottle. There isn’t an attached device rack at the top, like the Sole F80, but there is a ledge below the touch screen to place your phone or tablet to stream content from your own device.

Build Quality

Now let’s dive into the build quality and construction portion of this ProForm Pro 2000 review. The ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill is designed to be used in homes. It’s comparable to other folding home treadmills on the market. With its size, build materials, motor, and deck length, this treadmill is great for moderate amounts of use and most people.

For its weight limit, the Pro 2000 handles users up to 300 lbs. This means that it can handle people up to this weight. This is the standard weight limit that we see on treadmills from ProForm and NordicTrack. If you need a higher weight limit we recommend checking out models from Sole and Horizon.


Proform Pro 2000 Frame

The ProForm Pro 2000 has a steel frame.

The frame supports the base of the treadmill and is positioned under the front of the deck. From there, two steel uprights extend up to attach to the console and hold it in place.

When running on the Pro 2000, it does shake a little bit. This is pretty typical for most home treadmills, especially ones with touch screens. It isn’t distracting or bothersome while using the Pro 2000. The handles are covered in a textured plastic that doesn’t feel slippery. The side handles extend on either side of the deck and the front handle is positioned just under the console in between the fan to offer two sides to grip when you need extra balance and support. I prefer the front handle to be one continuous piece like the NordicTrack 1750 and Sole F80, but this handle is easy and convenient to grab when needed.


The Pro 2000 has a 3.25 CHP motor. This is comparable to other treadmills in its class. With this size of motor, we recommend the Pro 2000 for light to moderate walking, jogging, hiking, and running. It’s a good option if you’re looking to run around 5-10 miles per day. If you want to run more than that or train for an event like a marathon, the ProForm Pro 9000, NordicTrack 1750, and Sole F80 have a bit more motor power for that level of use.

The ProForm Pro 2000 goes up to 12 mph. This is a 5-minute mile running pace. This speed range is pretty standard for home treadmills and should be enough speed for most people to run, if not, sprint.

Proform Pro 2000 Deck Inclined

The deck inclines and declines which is definitely valuable for adding variety to your training.

The 12% incline gets the posterior muscles of the legs activated, while the -3% decline works the front muscles in the legs.

The motor overall is pretty quiet. The incline makes a bit of extra noise on top of the drive motor when the treadmill is adjusting the grade of the deck.


The deck is what makes the ProForm Pro 2000 compact, yet great for running. It is 20” wide and 60” long. This length is what we’ve found to be supportive of all running strides. This means, most walkers and runners should have plenty of room on the Pro 2000.

Proform Pro 2000 Running Surface

It is 20” wide which makes it a little more compact than other folding treadmills, but without being constricting.

If you want a larger folding treadmill, then check out the Horizon 7.4 AT, Sole F80, and Bowflex Treadmill 10.

The deck cushioning, which is the amount of give in the deck when your feet land on it while walking and running, is forgiving without feeling bouncy. We’ve found in our testing that some brands offer more deck cushion and shock absorption than others. NordicTrack has some of the softest cushioning, while Sole has some of the firmest. ProForm is right around in the middle, making the Pro 2000 a good choice for most people.

As a good reference, you’ll probably want a greater amount of deck cushioning if you experience joint sensitivity while running. If you are a road runner though, you’ll probably want a firmly cushioned deck. I think most people will find the ProForm Pro 2000 to be comfortable and nicely cushioned.

Overall, for a compact treadmill for running, the Pro 2000 is a stable treadmill with nice features. Its size pairs well with all of its training capabilities, construction quality, and deck cushioning. This makes it a great treadmill for people who don’t have a ton of space to dedicate in their homes but still want to train regularly.


ProForm includes their standard warranty with the Pro 2000 Treadmill. The 10-year frame warranty helps to instill confidence in the build. This is also included with 2-year parts and a 1-year labor warranty. Having at least 2 people for the set-up of the Pro 2000 is a good idea.

Should You Buy The ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill

We recommend the ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill for people who want to run on a treadmill but are short on space in their home. The Pro 2000 is a solid treadmill for moderate amounts of running. It has a compact design compared to other folding treadmills, yet it can handle people up to 300 lbs and all stride lengths.

One aspect that makes the Pro 2000 stand apart is streaming from iFIT on the 10” touch screen. iFIT offers thousands of trainer-led workouts filmed indoors and out, so you’ll never feel bored. A membership to iFIT is also beneficial if you love trainer-led content, and/or if you’re someone who needs a bit of extra motivation while you’re on the treadmill. It’s also great if you are a beginner looking to get into a good fitness routine.

The folding deck, 3.25 CHP motor, and incline and decline range make the ProForm Pro 2000 our pick as the best compact treadmill on the market. Check it out if these features align with your needs and goals.

ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill Review FAQs / Q&As

Does the ProForm Pro 2000 work without iFIT?

Yes, you can use the ProForm Pro 2000 without a subscription to iFIT. Without iFIT, you can access manual mode and a featured iFIT workout. Manual mode doesn’t require wifi to use. The featured iFIT workout and the full library of iFIT (if you’re subscribed) require an internet connection. With all of the workout classes and training features that iFIT has to offer, we recommend checking it out on the Pro 2000. It can definitely make for an immersive training experience.

How much does the ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill weigh?

The ProForm Pro 2000 weighs 262 lbs when it is delivered in the box. It’s a good idea to have at least 2 people for assembly.

What is the difference between the ProForm Pro 2000 and Pro 9000?

The ProForm Pro 9000 has a larger motor and touch screen. The Pro 9000 is the premium treadmill in ProForm’s lineup, so it is also priced higher. Both treadmills are the same size, but if you want a larger 22” touch screen for streaming iFIT versus the 10” screen on the Pro 2000, check out the Pro 9000. The Pro 2000 is lower in price, so it’s a good choice if you want to save some money.

Is this ProForm Pro 2000 Treadmill review a paid review?

Our ProForm Pro 2000 review isn’t paid. ProForm sent us the treadmill but we were not paid to compile this review. All of the information above reflects our team’s experience using the Pro 2000. We do have affiliate links that allow us to make money. We work with several different treadmill brands so we’re able to test all kinds of models to accurately determine which treadmills are the best on the market.
