Further down the page, you’ll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the ProForm Pro 2000 and the ProForm Pro 5000.
But before checking out explanations regarding their specs and features here’s a table that summarizes the main technical summary sheet for these 2 treadmills:
In most buying decisions, pricing must be the top-concerned issue. In this Proform treadmill series battle, the Proform Pro 2000 takes the lead since it is $1,000 cheaper than the Pro 5000.
However, being more affordable doesn’t make the winner! Let’s see how much weight these trainers can handle to have a better view. There is no difference in user capacity between the entry and high-end levels. More specifically, both Pro 2000 and 5000 models can carry a maximum of 300 pounds.
What about the number of built-in workout programs in each trainer? Well, there is a big gap between them. While Pro 2000 has over 16,000 different programs, the Pro 5000 only offers 50 exercises for its users.
SmartPro 5000 provides better performance than its smaller model (SmartPro 2000) regarding the power, as the Pro 5000 is produced with a power of 3.75 motors. Meanwhile, the SmartPro 2000 only runs at 3.25 CHP, much weaker than the Pro 5000.
Let’s discuss the treadmill’s incline and decline range. Both SmartPro 2000 and 5000 offer an impressively wide range that is not found easily in other treadmill models at this price point. The Proform Smart Pro 2000’s incline range is about -3% to 15%. The figure for Proform PRO-5000 is a bit wider: -3-15%.
There is no winner in the battle of maximum speed, as there is no difference between the two trainers. In detail, both Pro 2000 and 5000 can all reach 12 MPH.
When the treadmills reach their highest speed, there may be so much heat released. The CoolAire system will cool down the SmartPro 2000’s engine as same as the SmartPro 5000.
The heart monitoring feature is similar for both trainers. Users just need to wear an EKG Grip Pulse, and the machine will calculate the heart rate for you.
Besides, sizing is also one of the important elements to consider before purchasing. The dimension of the Pro 2000 takes up to 35-inch wide x 75-inch long x 65-inch high. By comparison, the Pro 5000 offers longer and wider measurements that are 39.15-inch wide x 79-inch long x 71.4-inch high.
You may wonder whether there are rollers to move the trainers? Well, they both have rollers. Based on the manual, the wheels are about 1.9″ Non-Flex, front and rear. In terms of folding features, although the deck of these two is made out of steel that is slightly heavy it is easy to fold up because of the shock-assist technology.
What about the trainer’s belt size? The SmartPro 2000 is equipped with the 22″ X 60″ running surface. Regarding this matter, the SmartPro 5000 has the same size as the Pro 2000 treadmill.
To activate, adjust the speed and incline range, just click the “Speed” and “Incline” buttons on the console for further change.
As mentioned above, the console allows you to change the speed, the incline, and the decline angle for more comfortable training. According to the manual, they both contain a 10-inch HD touchscreen. However, only the SmartPro 5000 has a water-resistant color display screen that SpartPro 2000 doesn’t offer.
What about their speaker system? Well, just like other Nordictrack trainers, you can use the built-in Bluetooth connecting gate in each machine.
If you seek an application capable of these treadmills to keep track of your training, then the only choice for you is iFit. Once you buy these trainers, a premium iFit account will be assigned to you for one year free.
Regarding the water bottle cubbies and extra storage, both treadmills have a small built-in corner next to the console to place the drink and device holder as well.
When buying a Proform Pro 2000 trainer, you will get a 10-year frame, 2-year parts, and one year of labor warranty.
Meanwhile, consumers will receive a set of lifetime frames and a motor that comes along with the Sole TT8. Moreover, the brand offers a 5-year warranty of replacement parts and two years of labor.

We have to say that in terms of features, both Proform Smart Pro 2000 vs 5000 present an excellent and similar performance.
However, in our opinion, the overall winner should be the Proform Pro 2000 as it possesses space saver features at a valuable cost that is suitable for everyone and a variety of spaces.
