This is a great treadmill for the money. It has all the features we need and is easy to use.
We use it 30 minutes every morning. Since we are both over 65 years of age, it's perfect for us.
It's very easy to put together. It took us less than an hour!
Perfect for me and my family!
I replaced a 10 yr old Nordic Track 2200 treadmill with the C700.
It took a couple of hrs to assemble (alone) but the directions were easy to follow and well laid out.
I run on the treadmill 3 days a week usually 5+mi @ 8:30 pace.
I am very pleased with the performance and quality. The machine is quiet and the system is quite an improvement from my 2200.
I have had the c700 for 2+ mo and 120 mi and am very satisfied. Well worth the money.
Easy to operate.
Haven't gotten an Ipad yet to use ifit, but next on list.
Have lost 10 lbs in a month, looking for 50 more.
I am 85+ and trying to get back in shape after a lung removal.
I am currently up to 2.4 mph at a 1% incline for a5 minutes each day. When I reach 2.5 mph I will start increasing my time by 5 minutes each week.
I feel better and can do more each day. Thanks for a splendid unit.
