… speed adjustment

The treadmill comes equipped with “QuickSpeed” control. This means that you can easily jump to any speed within the range 0 – 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.

… 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 -15 deg. You can simulate running uphill and add both challenge and variety to your exercise session.

… decline adjustment

In addition to the 15% of positive inclination that can be adjusted by a simple “Quick control” system the deck is also able to decline to – 3%. This is a feature that is usually only found on more expensive, gym quality machines.

The deck decline has the benefit of activating different muscles by walking at a decline. This is claimed to burn more calories and stimulate more muscle for faster results.

… 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.

… cushioning system

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 has been designed to help reduce the impact on your joints and deliver a more comfortable surface on which to walk or run.

… workout cooling fan

This treadmill has a”CoolAire” workout fan incorporated into the control console to keep you cool during your workout. The fan features multiple speed settings. You can press the fan increase or decrease button to select a fan speed or to turn off the fan completely.

… audio auxillary port

The treadmill features an auxilliary audio port. You can now enjoy your workout while you play your favorite music through the built-in dual speakers.

The built-in dual Bluetooth speakers let you hear your music or videos wirelessly with even less complication.

Simply plug in, press play and listen to your favorite music while you exercise.

… folding design

When not in use the deck on this model can be folded upright to a near vertical position, so that the treadmill occupies a lot less floor space.

An “Easy Lift” system utilizing a telescoping shock unit helps the user to lift the deck upright for storage. When the equipment is required for use the mechanism drops the deck slowly back into place.
