2.8 HP Mach™ Motor
Start your workout habit right with a motor delivering smooth, consistent power to your full range of workouts—intervals, speed, and endurance.
20” x 55” Tread Belt
Because your in-home workout experience should be a comfortable one, ProForm designed a roomy deck so you won’t feel confined as you walk, jog, and run. The 55-inch length gives your legs plenty of room to get moving. And the 20-inch width allows your upper-body comfortable elbowroom. To ensure our treadmills are top quality, we test each belt for one million cycles at double the user weight before release.
Our No. 1 goal is to provide a comfortable run—and a comfortable walk. Every treadmill we release is equipped with cushioning throughout the deck area. So as you walk, jog, or run, your joints will be thanking you. With less stress on your feet, ankles, knees, and hips, you’ll be able to enjoy a longer workout and faster recovery time. It’s one reason why people love their treadmills.
We know you like your house to be clutter-free. So we invented a treadmill that folds up and out of the way when you’re done with your workout. It totally rocked the fitness industry; but honestly, we’re just glad you don’t have to sacrifice your living space for your fitness habit anymore.
1.9” Precision Machined and Balanced Non-Flex Rear Roller
We know that a quality product is all about the details. That’s why we’ve built the Performance 500 with 1.9-inch precision-machined, balanced, non-flex rollers. These medium-sized rollers decrease tension, which keeps wear and tear to a minimum. You’ll also notice less noise and better grip. So, just in case you were wondering, we care about the little things, too.
iPod® Compatible Audio*
Once you create your raving workout playlist, just plug your iPod® or MP3 player into our built-in sound system. Built with two 2-inch speakers, you can turn up the tunes and turn up the tempo. Experts have learned that we actually increase or decrease our pace to match the tempo of our tunes. Music has also been proven to lower perceived exertion. That’s great news.
*iPod® is a trademark of Apple, Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries. iPod® not included.
We know when you’ve made up your mind about getting fit, you mean business. So we made sure your workout stats are right in front of you as you work out. That means you can watch your mileage, speed, calorie burn, heart rate, and time add up. It feels good to know you’re getting stronger each day.

0-10 MPH QuickSpeed® Control

Thanks to a bigger motor size and faster flywheel gear ratio, we are pretty proud of the Performance 500’s 10 mph top speed.
