Proform 505 CST Treadmill Review
Average Price: $583.00
Frugal5 Score: 8.5/10
Description
The Proform 505 is a great value for someone who isn't a intense runner.  The motor is a little weaker at 2.25 CHP, which means it might start to struggle when you get up to 9 and 10 MPH. If you don't run at those speeds this will be a great buy.

It folds for storage and consumers seemed to have no trouble using the feature. Some of the iFit functions of this treadmill may not be helpful for the frugal-minded runner since you must pay for the individual programs at a cost of about $30 each. As with most treadmills, the handgrip heart rate monitor has problems with accuracy.
