These 30 workout programs showcase everything this treadmill is capable of and help you to achieve your fitness goals.









… drive motor

This model utilizes a powerful 3.0 CHP motor. This commercial grade Mach Z Motor allows you to exercise for longer periods of time while maintaining a consistent operation. The motor is also spin balanced to ensure a smooth and quiet operation.




… speed adjustment

This model is equipped with "QuickSpeed" control. This means that you can easily jump to any speed within the range 0 - 12 MPH with one touch at any time during your workout. You can decrease your speed immediately when you are tired and need a break, or increase it instantly for a challenging burst.




… incline adjustment

This model is fitted with a "Quick Incline" control. This allows you to electronically change the degree of slope up or down throughout your workout from the control panel. The slope of the incline can be adjusted within the range 0 to12 deg. You can simulate running uphill and add both challenge and variety to your exercise session.




... iFIT compatible

This treadmill is iFIT capable. In essence this is a wireless connection between the Internet and the treadmill. The iFIT feature allows you to experience trails all over the globe just as if you were running outside.

iFIT lets you download personalized workouts, create your own workouts, track your workout results, race against other iFit users, and access many other features.

It should be noted that this feature requires a home wireless internet connection, the iFIT Module and iFIT membership that is available as an optional extra.

... workout cooling fan

This model is equipped with an "CoolAire" workout fan incorporated into the console. Just a hit a button and you can have low or high speed fans to keep you cool during even the most intensive workout.





… shock absorption

The "ProShox" cushioning system employed on this treadmill is an air-based system and helps to reduce the impact on your joints and delivers a more comfortable running surface.









... iPOD connection

This treadmill has a universal iPOD dock. You can now enjoy your workout while you play your favorite music through the built-in "Intermix Acoustics 2.0 EQ" sound system. 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.





... safety key

A safety key and lanyard is provided with the treadmill. In order for the treadmill to be operational the key must be present in the control console. This means that with the key withdrawn the treadmill cannot be operated by unauthorized users such as small children.

The safety key has a lanyard with a small plastic clip attached to one end which can be clipped onto the users clothing. If the user were to accidentally trip or fall while on the treadmill the key is pulled away from the console causing the treadmill's walking belt to slow to a stop.





... user weight

With a 350 lbs. weight-capacity this model has the strength and durability you should expect from a mid range treadmill.





... folding frame

This model has been designed with "space saver" technology. This facility allows you to fold the treadmill into an upright position after your workout where it will then occupy a lot smaller floor area. The raising and lowering of the deck is assisted by an "easy lift" mechanism.

I did a LOT of research before I bought this machine, and I'm very glad that I decided on this model.


I'm not a marathon runner--so I can't verify if this treadmill would for someone like that--but I'm an avid walker [I workout about an hour a day] who keeps a pretty brisk pace, and the machine is just perfect for me.

Assembly of the machine only took two hours for my husband and I, which was great, and the machine is sturdy when it's in operation.

The only downside--and it isn't really a downside when you think of what kind of equipment it is--is that it is VERY heavy to move if you're trying to get it up or down some stairs. You'll need a friend or two to shift the motor/belt component, believe me.

Other than that, there are no other warnings that I can offer. This is a great treadmill for the price, and I would recommend it to my friends.








I was used to gym treadmills.

This treadmill is as good as any I have used at my local gym.





I bought this for my wife for her birthday. She loves it.

It very sturdy and feels like a professional quality machine.

Setting up was straight forward, just read and follow the manual.

She has only been using it for a week so we can't talk about the longevity of this equipment, but it has a great warranty and with the build quality, I feel it will last a long time.

I would highly recommend this product. The packaging was great as well.








Well made and easy to operate. My wife and I enjoy this product very much. Great having a treadmill in the house, no driving to the gym for a quick run.





Ordered treadmill because of fantastic price!

Didn't need help to assemble. Instructions were pretty straight-forward.

The machine works absolutely great!

Very glad I bought this model and brand. I'm diabetic and need to keep my weight and blood sugar in check.





Spent a lot time researching and looking for a treadmill and decided on the 995C.

It is very quiet and is very easy on the joints.






This is an excellent treadmill. Especially for the price.


I'm a big'un at 260 pounds but the machine takes care of me quite easily.

I would recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced product.
