Treadmill Review

 

 

There are 20 Personal Trainer Workouts on the NordicTrack Reflex TR treadmill that automatically adjust the incline and speed. Each workout focuses on an aerobic, weight loss or performance goals. Create & Save Workouts let you design up to 4 customized workouts for future use. There are also 2 heart rate workouts.

With a similar specification to it's stable mate the "SR", this upgraded model boasts a more powerful 3.5 CHP motor and longer (60") running surface.
