ProForm Thinline Desk Treadmill
It’s Totally Unique.
If you want a treadmill desk for your home office but you don’t think that you have room for one, think again. Not only does this treadmill NOT require a separate desk, but it quickly folds up into a compact unit that you can store against a wall out of the way when not in use.
I have not seen another treadmill that folds up, so this is definitely a unique feature that would appeal to anyone short on space.
The All-in-One Bonus:
When I first started shopping for treadmill desks myself, I really didn’t like the idea of having to get a treadmill and then a desk and make sure each part fit the other. Buying two separate parts also increased the price quite a bit.
I preferred the simplicity of having an all-in-one treadmill desk that already had everything I needed set up and ready to go. The Thinline is perfect for people who want a “turn-key” treadmill that requires very little assembly. In fact, it comes fully assembled, all you do is attach the base brace and you’re done.
Keep the console turned up for running or exercise or flip it down to use as a versatile desktop surface.
It’s Super High-Tech:
This treadmill desk has lots of electronic and computerized features that make operating this device a dream. It has pretty much anything you’d want (and probably more). Check this out:
- Integrated Tablet Holder (built-in)
- 40 Workout Apps (already loaded)
- Raise or Lower the Desk to the Perfect Height in Seconds
- Heart Rate Monitor (hand grips built-in to handlebar)
- iFIT Technology is built in (does require a $99 annual subscription, but this is optional)
- Workout fan
Talk about efficient! You can get an incredible amount of work and exercise accomplished from the small 54.9″ x 80.6″ x 35″ footprint. I’m not surprised that this is quickly becoming one of the most popular treadmill desks on the market.
A Way Better Value… for Some People
Another cool aspect of this model is that you can run on the treadmill. Most under-desk treadmills are designed exclusively for walking flat, so they don’t go above 4 MPH, nor do they incline.
The speed on the ProForm Thinline, however, increases to a whopping 12 MPH with a max incline of 12%. You can definitely get a lot more use out of this machine, whether you are an avid runner or want to walk at a fast pace uphill.
The ProForm Thinline is Not All Good:
Although there are many features that I like about this ProForm treadmill desk, there is one thing that I don’t like: the weight. It weighs about 275 lbs.
Now, if you have a strong person to help you move it (or if you don’t have to do any of the moving) then who cares? However, if you need to carry this machine up a flight of stairs you may want to think twice, or at least plan ahead.
It also does not have wheels, so if you want to roll it into a closet once you have folded it up, you won’t be able to. This means that you won’t be able to fold it up and store it in a closet, well, unless that is where you plan to use it.
More Reasons People Love the ProForm Thinline:
- 300 lb Weight Capacity
- 20″ x 60″ treadmill Belt (this is longer than most, great if you have a wide stride)
- 2.75 CHP motor (commercial grade, designed for high use. Powerful yet quiet!)
