With a high number of pre-set programmes, a unique Custom Performance Center, an extra long running belt and an incline ability all wrapped up with a great price tag why we can see why the ProForm Power 995i Treadmill is popular.
But for some of our readers, it might sound too good to be true. So, let’s get down to business and delve deeper into the features of the Power 995i treadmill.

Built to last a lifetime
Proform are known globally for building sturdy machines that are designed to last a lifetime, and the Power 995i treadmill is no different.
The metal framing encases a 3.0CHP drive and 2.5 precision non-flex roller.
For some of you, particularly sprinters, 3.0CHP might not sound powerful enough. If you're a sprinter and are looking for a treadmill with more ‘umpf’ then check out the NordicTrack Commercial 2950 Treadmill which has a 4.25CHP motor.
Overall though, the Power 995i Treadmill feels solid, powerful and reliable when in use.
Running, jogging, walking
Although not particularly suitable for sprinters, the 995i treadmill does have a spacious belt and is ideal for walking, jogging and running.
Thankfully, the lovely folks at Proform have given you a little bit of extra legroom on the deck which measures in at 20 x 60 (51 x 152 cm). Thank you Proform!
Gone are the days of staring at your feet to make sure you don’t overstep meaning that you can happily tread the deck with peace of mind.
So, how comfortable is it?
The Power 995i has unique Proshox Cushioning built into the deck. So it is ideal for those of you that are starting your fitness journey, or anyone that suffers from joint pain.
Running can be especially hard on the knees, but this cushioning system ensures that the impact of each footstep is absorbed.
The console is within easy reach, and the handlebars are at an ideal height for the average user, so when you are using the programmes you can easily toggle between speed and measure your heart rate.
Just how many programmes are there built into the Power 995i?
There are 30 fun and challenging workouts
Sounds like a lot doesn’t it? To be honest, for the price of the machine, it is! We feel like we're getting a bargain!
The programmes all encompass different elements of training from stamina to speed and fat burn.
Although we think that 30 programmes is more than enough to create a varied fitness routine that will keep you motivated and challenged, you may still be craving more.
If you're the type of person that likes a new fitness challenge every day then we would recommend purchasing an additional iFit Bluetooth Smart subscription. With this, you can access new workout videos every day, discover healthy recipes, challenge your friends to fitness battles and with Google Maps run real-road routes.
Working out just got a whole lot more fun!
You can even choose to adapt the programme that you are working on by adding in an incline percentage.
The Power 995i inclines
That’s right! To make your challenges even harder, you can easily change the incline percentage.
The Power 995i has an impressive 0% - 15% incline ability.
It is worth noting though that there is no decline feature on this model, so if this is something that interests you then look towards the NordicTrack X22i.
Remember that is important to keep a track of your heart rate if you are pushing hard. On the Power 995i you can keep a watchful eye on your stats via the 7” display screen.
Your heart rate will be measured by the EKG pulse grips which are conveniently positioned on the front handlebars.
What are you waiting for?
With such a great bundle of programmes and an incline feature, the ProForm Power 995i is a well-made product that is stable even when reaching a top speed of 12mph (22kph). It is ideal for those of you interested in HIIT training but also suits anyone who wants to use it for daily walking.
It gets a solid thumbs-up from us.
