Transparency to you, our reader, is our top priority.
We believe everyone should be able to make decisions about their home with confidence. While our site doesn’t review every home products or services company in the market, we’re proud that our reviews and recommendations are objective, independent, straightforward — and free.
So how do we make money? Our content is free to you, the reader, because we may earn a commission when you click or make a purchase using our site. This may influence which products we review and write about (and where those products appear on the site), but it in no way affects our recommendations or advice, which are grounded in thousands of hours of independent research. We sometimes offer premium or additional placements on our website and in our marketing materials to our advertising partners but our partners cannot, and do not, pay us to guarantee favorable reviews of their products or services. If you choose to click on the links on our site, we may receive compensation, which then funds our operations.
If you have any specific questions while considering which product or service you may buy, feel free to reach out to us anytime or read our full policy here

Walt from Wisconsin reviewed the Pro 2000 treadmill, rated the 2017 Best Buy from Consumer Magazine.
“I believe this is one of the best treadmills you can buy at this price point. Very solid, very quiet, very strong, best treadmill I have owned. I am not being compensated for this review I’m honestly very, very happy with this purchase. Great machine!”
Steve from Pennsylvania reviewed the Performance 400i treadmill, one of ProForm’s top sellers.
“Club quality at an affordable price. You can feel the quality when you set it up. Practically noiseless and sturdy construction. Easy to assemble, about an hour. Easy to use and understand. Tablet holder keeps your tablet secure without bouncing, shock absorbing deck. You will need a surge protector as it will trip your breaker sometimes. Belt is 55 inches long but I an 6’2″ and have no problem running on it.“
