The Commercial Pro motor is also dynamically spin-balanced and extensively tested for superior performance in vibration and noise in order to deliver a smooth and quiet operation.

The slope of the incline can be adjusted within the range 0 to 15 %. You can simulate running uphill and add both challenge and variety to your exercise session.

This treadmill also has a decline feature. Usually only available on more expensive treadmills the deck is able to decline from level down to a - 3 %. decline. This feature allows you to activate different muscles for faster results by walking at a decline. walking on a decline will enable you to burn more calories than walking on a flat surface and stimulate more muscle for faster results.

The system delivers improved clarity while reproducing a wide range of audio frequencies. Simply plug in, press play and listen to your favorite sounds while you exercise.




... user weight

When choosing a treadmill you should make sure that any potential users do not exceed the manufacturer's stated upper weight limit. The upper weight limit of this treadmill is 350 lbs.
