The sound system also includes a compatible music port for iPOD. This allows you to plug your iPOD, or MP3 Player, into the Interplay Music Port and listen to your music collection through the sound system. The iPOD rests on the console shelf, so that it is within easy reach.
… workout cooling fan

This treadmill has a “CoolAire” workout fan incorporated into the console. The fan has an automatic setting which when selected adjusts the airflow according to your workout speed.

The equipment comes with a safety key and lanyard. In order for the treadmill to be operational the key must be present in the control console. This means that with the key withdrawn the treadmill cannot be operated by unauthorized users such as small children.
