The Proform 585 treadmill is a durable, basic piece of equipment designed to go long distances with one touch pre-set exercise programs. Not top of the line, this treadmill doesn’t offer frills but is lower cost than comparable machines.

Basic Features

The Proform 585 can handle weights up to 300 lbs. and has adjustable speeds from 0 to 10 miles per hour and inclines from 0 to 10 percent. Running surface length and width is 55 inches by 20 inches.


The ProForm 585 motor design is for heavy usage with a continuous motor power of up to 2 horsepower. An axial fan cools the motor, leading to a longer motor life.

Other Features

The 585’s patented AirTek cushion deck offers a smooth run. Heart rate monitors are available in the crossbar and a functional clear view display panel lets you easily adjust the treadmill’s speed and incline.


According to Proform’s website, the Proform 585 features 8 preset iFit workouts. A built-in port fits your iPOD or MP3 player, allowing it to rest on the console shelf as excellent sound quality comes through its built-in speakers.


As of summer in 2010, the price for the Proform 585 treadmill is $699 per Proform’s official website, but is found for $499 from retailers such as the Sports Authority. Financing options are available through both.
