Our Proform 730CS Treadmill Review
Use exercise programs directly from the Internet
You can use it with programs that you can find on the Proform website. Just make sure the treadmill is connected to your home computer with an active Internet connection. To do so, you will also need an audio jack.
Plug one end of the audio cable into the front jack of the Proform 730CS and the other end to your computer. Once connected, just visit the iFit website (www.iFit.com) on your computer and follow the instructions there on how to download and activate your desired exercise program.
Optional Chest Pulse Sensor
This hands-free heart rate monitor will help you continuously monitor your heart rate as you perform your work-outs. Note that you do not have to be on the machine in order for it to function. Just make sure you are close to the machine as you perform your stretches and other exercise routines to monitor your heart’s pace.
Personal Trainer Programs
You can work out in the comfort of your home and still reap the benefits of having your own personal trainer. The Pro form 730CS console features a total of 6 personal trainer programs. You can choose among its 2 low intensity programs, 2 medium intensity programs and 2 high intensity programs, whichever fits your needs and mood. The digital console itself will show you what to expect from your selected program as well as status report of how you’re doing (your speed and incline).
