Favorite Purchase

My favorite purchase is definitely my ProForm treadmill. It’s an older model and I’ve had it for a while but it’s been a workhorse. As a busy mom, being able to run outside isn’t always possible and running helps me feel grounded so my treadmill allows me to get a workout in no matter what. It has inspired my daughters to begin running and they use it almost as much as I do. The ProForm has easy to use button controls and I can preset work and rest intervals for a HIIT workout so I don’t have to adjust the speed while trying not to fall off. I can connect my phone or iPad to watch videos or stream shows. My workouts are the only times I have to catch up on YouTube channels I follow! The ProForm is also pretty quiet. It’s in a room next to my son’s room and he says he never hears it when I’m running early in the morning. I have a variety of fitness equipment in my home gym but my treadmill is by far the best fitness purchase I’ve made.


Jen received a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Salisbury State University and is a certified Exercise Physiologist through the American College of Sports Medicine.
