This is a commercial grade treadmill with an over engineered frame making the Nordic Track S3000 Institutional extremely robust and able to withstand the most rigorous workouts.

The large running surface is very comfortable to run on due to the Nordic Track’s “DuraSoft” shock absorption, which results in less stress on ankles, knees and hips.

At the heart of this treadmill lies a “sleeping giant” – a very powerful 5.0 HP commercial “DurX” motor which has been designed to run for long periods without overheating as would be expected in a gym or health club.

The equipment is iFIT compatible which means that in addition to the programs built into the console you can get programmed workouts via the internet, compact discs or video that actually control the speed and intensity of your fitness equipment. You get targeted workouts designed by personal trainers to provide motivational coaching and music.

The product is protected by a lifetime cover on the motor. The warranty also covers the rollers for 4 years, 2 years on parts, 1 year on the belt and deck and IN-HOME labor..
