The quiet and smooth ProForm 505 CST treadmill features a 2.50 HP motor ( Mach Z Commercial Motor), which can reach speeds up to 10 miles per hour (in increments of 0.5 mph). The treadmill can incline between 0 (flat) to a 10 percent grade (powered). You can easily store the ProForm 505 CST as it folds up.

Smart-Review Commentary: The ProForm 505 CST is a good mid range level treadmill with many of the latest features and an excellent warranty. It is suitable for walking, light running, and jogging. Since it folds up, it is ideal for areas where you can’t leave the treadmill open at all times. Folding is easy, thanks to the EasyLift™ Assist hydraulic lift system. The ProForm 505 CST treadmill has a 2.50 HP motor, allowing up to a 325 lb. user, which is good for this price range (for serious runners, we recommend a 3.0 HP motor or larger, such as the i995 model below).

The Treadmill is fully loaded with features including 18 workout Apps, Power incline, iFit option, Built-in Speakers, ProShox™ Cushioning, and a multi-feature console. A tablet/ipad holder allows you to entertain yourself while working out, and can hook into the ifit program with the ifit app. The longer 55-inch running deck is suitable for running, jogging, walking. The feature loaded ProForm 505 CST (PFTL60916) is a Smart-Review Top Pick and a great value for the money for mid-range level treadmills.
