...heavy duty deck

An important although often ignored component of a treadmill is the actual running deck itself.

It is important when choosing a treadmill to ensure that any intended user of the treadmill has a weight that falls within the manufacturer's stated maximum user weight.

This model has a manufacturer's maximum user weight of 400 lbs which should accommodate most users.




… heart rate monitor

Contacts built into the handgrips are provided in order to monitor the user's heart. This is the type of heart rate monitoring that can be found on the majority of treadmills.
