These 30 workout programs showcase everything this treadmill is capable of and provide the necessary direction and impetus for you to achieve your fitness goals.

… drive motor

At the heart of this treadmill is a powerful 3.0 CHP motor. This motor utilizes high-grade wiring, insulation, and a thermal cut-off switch. Additionally through the use of high-end, commercial bearings and brushes, this motor delivers the longest, most powerful drive possible.

The motor is also dynamically spin-balanced and extensively tested for superior performance in vibration and noise in order to deliver a smooth and quiet operation.

… web touch screen

The 7″ full color, touch screen incorporates a web browser. This enables the user to connect to their home’s wireless internet network and check their email, surf the web or participate in social networking activities.

Just like a normal display screen the user can check their progress, but the user is able to navigate through menus and pull up relevant workout data with just a swipe of the finger.

The touch screen display works with the built in iFIT module to enable the user to enjoy the experience of watching their workout progress in real time via the Google Maps Street View technology.

… speed adjustment

The treadmill comes equipped with “QuickSpeed” control. This means that you can easily jump to any speed within the range 0 to 12 MPH with one touch at any time during your workout. You can decrease your speed immediately when you are tired and need a break, or increase it instantly for a challenging burst.

… iFIT enabled

This treadmill is iFIT enabled. In essence this is a wireless connection between the Internet and the treadmill. The iFIT feature allows you to experience trails all over the globe just as if you were running outside.

iFIT enables you to customize your own fitness program, receive automatic workout downloads, manage your profile online and work out with Jillian Michaels. You can even add the thrill of competition to your workout with 5k races against your Facebook friends.

It should be noted that this feature requires a home wireless internet connection, and membership to which is available as an optional extra.

… incline adjustment

The treadmill is also equipped with “Quick Incline” control. This allows you to electronically change the degree of slope up or down throughout your workout from the control panel. The slope of the incline can be adjusted within the range 0 to 12 %. You can simulate running uphill and add both challenge and variety to your exercise session.

… ProShox cushioning

Exercising on a treadmill is a great way to keep fit but running or walking on some treadmills can result in wear and tear to your joints. The ProShox  cushioning system employed on this treadmill  helps to reduce the impact on your joints and delivers a more comfortable running surface.

… workout cooling fan

A “CoolAire” workout fan is built into the console. It has two speed settings so that you can regulate the air stream to your preference.

This console mounted fan will help you to stay cool and comfortable during your workout.

… heart rate monitor

The treadmill is equipped with a dual-grip heart rate monitor. The built-in precision sensors allow you to quickly and accurately monitor your heart rate.

Simply grip the built-in sensors to quickly and accurately monitor your heart rate, stay within your optimum training zone and burn more fat.

… iPOD connection

The treadmill features a universal iPOD port. You can now enjoy your workout while you play your favorite music through the built-in “Intermix Acoustics” sound system.

The system delivers improved clarity while reproducing a wide range of audio frequencies. Simply plug in, press play and listen to your favorite sounds or audio book title while you exercise.

… tablet holder

An integrated, adjustable, tablet holder is attached to the top of the control console within easy reach.

It has been  designed for use with most tablet computers. The shelf keeps your tablet secure and in close proximity so that you can access any online training tools or entertainment.

… safety key

A safety key and lanyard is provided with the treadmill. 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.

The safety key has a lanyard with a small plastic clip attached to one end which can be clipped onto the users clothing. If the user were to accidentally trip or fall while on the treadmill the key is pulled away from the console causing the treadmill’s walking belt to slow to a stop.

... folding design

This is a “space saver” model which means that when not in use the treadmill can be folded into a near upright position where it will then occupy a lot smaller floor area.

The folding mechanism also incorporates an “easy lift” system which uses a hydraulic shock that slowly lowers the deck into place ready for use or assists in raising it to it’s stored position.

With the deck raised into its upright “stored” position the deck automatically locks into place.
