… workout programs

Secondly, there are 4 Speed Programs that automatically vary the speed of the treadmill throughout the workout.

Next there are 3 Incline Programs that automatically changes the level of incline of the running surface.

Next comes 3 combination programs that vary both the speed and incline of the running deck during the workout.

… drive motor

The treadmill utilizes a powerful 3.0 HP motor. This unit has been designed for long life and quiet operation. The motor benefits from an advanced Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) circuit board which is usually only found on commercial treadmills. The integral speed sensors work in tandem with the PWM circuitry to ensure smooth speed changes.

… heart rate control

The treadmill has a Heart Rate Control feature and comes equipped with a wireless chest strap. The pulse reading is taken from the hand grip pulse monitors or wireless chest strap and is used by the treadmill’s computer to automatically adjust the intensity of your workout.

This dynamic feedback loop provided by the heart rate control feature ensures that you are exercising in your target heart zone so that you are deriving the greatest benefit from your workout.
… handgrip controls

Adjusting the speed and incline settings of a treadmill whilst it is in motion can be somewhat precarious as on most models the user has to lean forward from their upright walking or running potion in order to adjust the console mounted control.

This model over comes this problem with controls for both the speed and the incline settings mounted on the handrails where they are more easily accessed than from the buttons on the control panel.

… cushioning system

The “Im-Pression” cushioning system on this model helps reduce harmful impact on your joints and back, providing a soft landing for the front foot and firm push-off for the rear foot. This enables you to exercise on the treadmill comfortably and for longer periods of time with less fatigue and discomfort.

… quite operation

Treadmills can be noisy, but the combination of the smooth running PWM regulated motor and the “whisper weave” tread belt technology employed on this model helps to ensure that any extraneous noise coming from the treadmill is kept to a minimum.

… iPOD connection

This model features an integrated deluxe sound system. To make use of this facility you simply connect your iPOD, MP3 player, CD player or other audio device to the auxiliary input jack. You are then able to experience your favorite music during your workout without being encumbered with headphone wires.
… reading rack / media shelf

On the front of the control console is mounted a shelf which may be used to support books, magazines, papers or electronic media devices, such as tablet computers, MP3 players or cell phone.

… 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.

… user weight

You should always ensure that when choosing a treadmill that the user weight limit is greater than the maximum user weight quoted by the manufacturer. The user weight of this treadmill is 350 lbs.
… space saver design

This is a “space saver” or folding treadmill which means that when you have finished your workout you can fold the running deck up into a near vertical where it will occupy less floor space.

Additionally the folding feature incorporates a dual-stage, soft drop folding mechanism. This is essentially a gas shock-assist lift system that allows you to gently tilt the deck into it’s operational or storage position.

The equipment also has transport wheels fitted so that when in it’s upright storage position it can be rolled away to a suitable storage location.
