Review Synopsis of the Pacemaster Platinum Pro VR Treadmill

The PaceMaster Platinum Pro VR offers a very unique feature to its users. It has a decline, or negative incline setting. You can run downhill. Some people use this feature to help lengthen the duration of their workouts, others use it to work muscles that aren’t worked otherwise. Below is a general review of this top selling treadmill.

One plus that stands out right away is the fact that it is built here in the United States. Most treadmill production today takes place overseas and while their quality control efforts are usually very good, there’s something comforting about knowing that an expensive product like a top notch treadmill was made here.

The 3 horsepower motor is well received by both expert critics and consumers alike. It is strong, durable, and the warranty that covers it is generous. It is controlled by a digital system with a dual microprocessor.

Many reviews from heavier users rave about the sturdiness of this machine. It has a weight capacity of four hundred pounds and it’s all steel base offers sturdiness at any speed. (Top speed is 12 miles per hour). Most consumer reports mention the quietness of this treadmill.

The track is 60″ long, one of the longest in the industry. Many reviews mention this as a big selling point because its long length makes running on it comfortable and safe. It inclines between negative 3 percent and positive 12 percent. We did not find one review where the user was not satisfied with the degree of the incline, nor the time it took the machine to get to it.

The training programs that it comes with are extremely well received. There are different types of terrain, and several different courses. Most reviews are glowing about how these programs make workouts fun and interesting.

The constant effort compensation mode is very popular as well. This feature causes the treadmill to slow down on its own on steep inclines and speeds back up as the pathway declines back to level. Even reviews done by professional athletes mention this feature as one that really makes a difference.

Several reviews mention some dissatisfaction with the positioning of the handrails. Some say they are too close to your sides and some say they are too short in length. This, of course, depends on your size and running style which is why it is always a good idea to use a treadmill in person before buying one.

Some complaints that the unit does not fold down and that it takes up a lot of room. Keep this in mind if space is limited where you live.

Overall, the Pacemaster Platinum Pro VR treadmill receives an average 3.91 rating out of a perfect five, which is very good comparatively.
