The Fuel FT96 Treadmill: Enhanced Features for Optimal Workouts


This model has similar overall specifications to its sister model, the FT94. However, the Fuel FT96 boasts a larger motor (2.5 HP Continuous Duty) and a longer running surface (58 inches).

The FT96 also offers the benefit of heart rate control using wireless telemetry via an inbuilt receiver and a supplied chest strap.

The console features built-in speakers, an MP3 player connection, and twin workout fans to keep you cool.

This treadmill has 5 built-in workout programs, allowing you to focus on aerobic, weight loss, or performance goals. It also includes 2 user-defined workouts and 2 heart rate control programs.

The product is underwritten by a lifetime warranty on both the frame and motor, along with 1 year of warranty coverage for parts and labor.
