Will a German transformer (1000 watts) eventually blow the motor in my American treadmill?

I do know that my treadmill is UNDER 1000 watts and I can plug it up and run and bring the incline up, but a friend of mine said that after some time the motor will blow cause of the voltage difference... does anyone know anything about this?
