… drive motor

At the heart of this treadmill is a powerful 3.8 CHP motor. This unit makes use of high-grade wiring, insulation, and a thermal cut-off switch. Additionally through the use of high-end, commercial bearings and brushes, this motor delivers the longest, most powerful drive possible.

The 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.





... iFIT enabled

This treadmill is iFIT enabled. 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 enables you to customize your own fitness program, receive automatic workout downloads, manage your profile online and work out with Jillian Michaels. You can even add the thrill of competition to your workout with 5k races against your Facebook friends.

It should be noted that this feature requires a wireless internet connection, and membership to iFIT.com which is available as an optional extra.








… cushioning system

Exercising on a treadmill is a great way to keep fit but running or walking on some treadmills can result in wear and tear to your joints. The "ProShox" cushioning system employed on this treadmill has been designed to help reduce the impact on your joints and deliver a more comfortable surface on which to walk or run.




... iPOD/ MP3 connection

The treadmill features a universal iPOD port. Connecting either an iPOD or any other MP3 player allows you to  enjoy your favorite music or an audio book through the built-in Intermix Acoustics 3.0 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.





... iPAD holder

The iPad Holder was designed for use with most full-size iPads. This removable shelf keeps your iPad secure and in close proximity so that you can access any online training tools or entertainment.

To insert an iPad into the iPad holder you merely set the bottom edge of the iPad in the tray. You can then pull the clip over the top edge of the iPad. The holder can be rotated to the desired viewing angle.







… speed adjustment

The treadmill comes 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

The treadmill is also equipped with "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 -15 deg. You can simulate running uphill and add both challenge and variety to your exercise session.




... decline adjustment

In addition to the 15% of positive inclination that can be adjusted by a simple "Quick control" system the deck is also able to decline to - 3%. This is a feature that is usually only found on more expensive, gym quality machines. The deck decline has the benefit of activating different muscles by walking at a decline. This is claimed to burn more calories and stimulate more muscle for faster results.




… heart rate monitor

The treadmill is equipped with a dual grip heart rate monitor. The built-in precision sensors allow you to quickly and accurately monitor your heart rate. Simply grip the built-in sensors to quickly and accurately monitor your heart rate, stay within your optimum training zone and burn more fat.

The treadmill is also supplied with a wireless chest strap that transmits your heart rate information to the console without the need to grip the contact sensors when running for example.









... 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.




... workout cooling fan

This treadmill has a "CoolAire" workout fan incorporated into the control console to keep you cool during your workout. The fan features multiple speed settings. You can press the fan increase or decrease button to select a fan speed or to turn off the fan completely.







... user weight

This treadmill has a manufacturer's advised user weight  of 375 lbs.

When choosing a treadmill it is important to make an evaluation of the anticipated weight of any potential user and ensure that this does not exceed the upper weight limit stated by the manufacturer.

I have had my treadmill for 14 days, I have used it 13 days.

It is quiet. It has no problem with me walking on it motor handles my weight no problem.

Love all the features. Glad I had it assembled as it is a beast!

Highly recommended if you need a machine with a high weight capacity and a great cushioned walking deck.

.. they put it together I plugged it in and I am happy!









Let me start our with the negative so that I can end on a very positive review for this product.

No where on the website does it mention that you must not have gfci outlets or afci breakers in your house. We have a new home and the breaker box is full of afci breakers. These will trip quickly if you use this huge piece of equipment.

We had to spend about $150 to replace the afci breaker for this particular room so that the treadmill would work. When we did get everything squared away, the top console of the treadmill was "fried" due to the afci tripping.

Okay, here is where it gets really good. Customer service was and is absolutely excellent. I spoke with Mckinly (spelling from her email) and she immediately got a new console shipped out to me. No big questions and very sympathetic to my plight.

Replaced the console and the machine is a fitness lover's dream. I can only say great things about the machine and the customer service I have received.

I would recommend that you check your breakers and outlets before you buy this equipment and spend the extra money for an electrician.

Other than that....two thumbs up on this equipment.
