… incline AND decline

In addition to the 15% of positive inclination that can be adjusted by a simple "1-Touch" system the deck is also able to decline to - 3%.

This feature is usually only found on more expensive treadmills and has the benefit of activating different muscles by walking at a decline.

This is claimed to burn more calories than walking on a flat surface and stimulate more muscle for faster results.

... upper / lower cooling fans

This model is unusual in having two sets of workout cooling fans which have been designed to direct cooling blasts of air to different parts of the body.

An upper set of fans are mounted in the control console and direct a cooling breeze onto the user's neck and face while a fan mounted in the accessory tray directs cooling air to the user's trunk.

Both sets of fans can be adjusted manually or put into auto mode where the fans speeds change in accordance with the treadmill's speed.

… heart rate monitor

The treadmill is equipped with a CardioGrip heart rate monitor. This helps you to make the most out of every workout by monitoring your heart rate via sensors that are built into the handlebars.

Monitoring your heart rate ensures that you're always in the right training zone for your goals. You can get a more effective workout, burn more fat, and improve your cardiovascular health.

The heart rate monitor can also be used with a wireless, chest strap which is included.

... cushioning system

In order to address the problems associated with the constant impact that joints receive whilst running this treadmill utilizes it's proprietary "Runners Flex" adjustable cushioning. This unique cushioning system has been designed to reduce impact on joints.

The suspension can be enabled to provide cushioning along the whole length of the running deck for maximum comfort or disabled to simulate running on the road or track.

.. space saving design

Treadmills can take up a fair amount of floor space, but the "space saver" technology on this model helps with this problem.

The folding frame allows the running deck to be raised into a near upright position after your workout where it will then occupy a lot smaller floor area. This feature also allows easy access underneath the treadmill for cleaning or maintenance.

In order to assist with folding the treadmill into it's storage position there is a powerful shock that will help lift the deck with an easy push.

Arrived in PERFECT condition!! The box was without a scratch or even a rub mark on it!

I had no idea how important the i-Fit Program could be with the addition of google maps in the acceptance of this machine into the workout routine.

This is the one piece of equipment that the family uses and enjoys, even with two teenage boys.

Most of the workout routines are completed by all members of the family in about an hour and burn an average of 650 calories.

The interaction value of this machine cannot be underestimated; it is absolutely necessary to maintain the attention span of the younger demographic.

The WiFi is very, very good. The machine is stable and aesthetically pleasing. The picture quality of the TV is very sharp.

It totally surpassed my expectations. BUY IT!!

Best quality treadmill I have ever ran on much less owned.

We can't say enough regarding our enjoyment of this machine.

The whole family is running more and for longer periods of time.

The machine is solid, well built, relatively easy to assemble.

Well worth the extra investment.

Best in the world service.

Very solid treadmill. Loaded with options and very comfortable to run on for long periods of time.

Extreme value at a good price. Very pleased!!!
