iFIT Workout Card technology is a prominent feature of the Nordic Track T5 Zi treadmill. Each card is designed by a certified personal trainer and plugs into the console, adjusting your speed and incline, while the voice of a personal trainer takes you through each workout.
The treadmill has a 20" x 55" treadbelt that is powered by a 2.8 HP DurX motor. The running deck is supported by a "FlexResponse" cushioning system that integrates firmer support zones at the foot-strike and take-off portion of your stride and a softer support zone throughout the rest.
There are 8 Quick Calorie Burn Workouts that automatically adjust the incline and speed of your treadmill, each focusing on a nominal calorie goal. Additionally there are 8 Quick Timed Workouts each of different time intervals from 15 min to 60 mins.
The console incorporates a Multi Window LED display that shows various workout data including elapsed time, speed, distance, incline, calories, pulse, and a 1/4 mile track. The console also contains a built in sound system that can be hooked up to an iPOD.
The treadmill comes with a lifetime guarantee on the frame, 25 yrs on the motor and 1 year of parts and labor.
