This model is very similar to the 9.35 ST model, but the Smooth 9.45 TV benefits from the inclusion of a high quality 15″ flat screen LCD TV and high fidelity speakers mounted at eye level above the control console.
This model also has the new “Hydra Suspension” adjustable shock absorption system fitted. Considered by some to be the best suspension system found on a treadmill this feature, allows you to adjust the softness of the running surface for each and every member of the family.
Another innovative design element of this family of treadmills is the “Motion Control” hands-free speed adjustment technology that allows the user to adjust the speed of the treadmill without having to lean over and touch the console.
The equipment has a total of 6 workout programs, 9 user profiles and heart rate control with wireless chest strap.
The treadmill is underwritten by a lifetime warranty on the frame and motor plus 5 years on all other parts and 2 yrs labor.
Lets look at some of the features:
… drive motor
A 3.0 HP continuous duty motor is used to drive the tread belt. This is a top-of-the-line motor which is underwritten by a lifetime warranty. More powerful than its predecessor and whisper quiet in operation it delivers maintenance-free service with a high horsepower output for runners or walkers. The motor is coupled to a precision-balanced, perimeter-weighted flywheel which contributes to its smooth running.
… workout programs
There are six challenging preset workout programs combined with 9 different user profiles. The programs are grouped into:
Quick Start / Manual Program
Killer Hills Program
Weight Loss Program
Self-Learning / Competition Program
Heart Rate Control Program
… high quality TV
Undoubtedly the most striking feature of this treadmill is the addition of a high quality LCD television, which is mounted at eye level onto a bracket above the console.
There is a growing demand for media devices to be available to us these days no matter what activity we are engaged in and exercising on a treadmill is no exception. We have seen several treadmills with built in TV’s but this is the most well thought execution of the idea.
The television has high-fidelity built-in speakers but can also be used with the headphones of your choice. The unique design keeps the television in one place even when you incline the treadmill. You can also run at full speed with no vibration at all on the TV.
… tread belt
This model incorporates a 20″ x 60″ tread belt. This is 5″ longer than the belt on the 9.35 HR model. The large running surface will be appreciated by the taller user who has a longer stride and may feel “cramped” running on a smaller running surface.
… hands free controls
A high tech but, practical method called “Motion Control” is used to regulate the speed of the tread belt. This ingenious facility means that you are able to adjust the speed with a simple wave of your hand.
You can speed up, slow down or stop the machine without ever touching the console again. This is a more convenient and safer method of controlling the machine than leaning forward to access the switches on the control panel.
… running deck
An often underestimated component of an exercise treadmill is the deck. The design and quality of material the deck is made from can radically alter the performance of the treadmill. The deck fitted to this model is triple-laminated with a phenolic resin, reversible deck that should last a lifetime.
… wireless heart control
This model comes as standard with Wireless Heart Rate Control. When this feature is selected a wireless transmitter sends information about your heart rate to the treadmill’s computer and this information is then used to modify the speed of the tread belt.
The treadmill is effectively changing its speed in sympathy with your heart rate and allows you to exercise within your target heart rate zone.This method of training is popular with many athletes.
… cushioning system
The running deck on this model is supported by a an advanced cushioning system. The Hydra Suspension system, which is available only on Smooth treadmills allows you to custom adjust the shock absorption to 12 different levels, accommodating any style of running. If you are a serious runner this is a “must have” feature.
