The upper body arms are what distinguish a Crosswalk machine from other treadmills. As you walk, you move the arm levers in sync with your walking. This design provides you with a total body workout. You can change the resistance of the Crosswalk arms to increase or decrease the intensity of the upper body workout. Turn the resistance knobs on the treadmill uprights to adjust the tension. ProForm claims you can burn up to 50 percent more calories by combining upper body arm movements with your regular treadmill workout.
The 485 Crosswalk features ProForm's Space Saver design. Raise the deck up to lock the unit into a vertical position for easy storage. The 1.5 horsepower motor supports speeds from 0 to 10 mph. The 485 Crosswalk has a power incline ramp adjustable up to 10 percent. The LCD display includes a fan to keep you cool and pulse sensors to detect your heart rate.
The 485 Crosswalk features six built-in workout programs: three Crosswalk workouts and three standard workouts. The treadmill will automatically adjust the speed and incline settings for you during these programs. Quick speed buttons on the console allow you to change the speed of the belt with one press of a button. The display shows elapsed time, approximate calories burned, distance and speed. You can set the 485 Crosswalk to mph or kph.
The drive motor on the 485 Crosswalk is warranted for one year, the frame for 10 years. Parts and labor are also covered for one year from the original date of purchase. The warranty is not nontransferable; it only applies to the original owner.
The 485 Crosswalk has a running area 16 inches wide and 50 inches long. The maximum user capacity is 250 lbs. To fold the treadmill, you lift the deck up into a vertical position. ProForm says you must be able to lift 45 lbs. to safely store the treadmill.
