Sole F65 Treadmill Review

The Sole F65 folding treadmill with cushion flex deck, hand rail controls and deluxe sound system.

The Sole F65 treadmill includes Bluetooth capability with smart devices. This model has a wider deck, more powerful motor and larger display than the less expensive F63 model.

There are six preset workout programs including cardio training and fat burning specific programs. In addition to these six standard programs there are also two user defined programs and two user defined programs.

This treadmill has built in speakers that enables the user to attach an MP3 player, or iPOD, to the auxiliary input jack so that you can hear your music selection through the speakers in the console.

The treadmill is backed by a lifetime warranty on the frame and motor, 3 years on the deck and electronics and 1 years labor.

Here are the main highlights of this model:

… drive motor

This treadmill utilizes a powerful 3.25 CHP motor. The unit has been designed for a long life and quiet operation. The motor has a flywheel attached to it that allows it to run cooler whilst drawing less current and extending the life off the motor.

The integral flywheel also allows the treadmill to run at starting speeds of 0.5 MPH. The flywheel is heavier than ones found in most other machines and results in a fluid motion you would expect to find in high end gym treadmills.
… shock absorption

This model utilizes the “Cushion Flex” system. It offers stability for the user while providing minimal stress to hips, knees ankles and spine.
… LCD display

The console has been designed to be user friendly with a large (7.5″) back-lit, LCD display. The information that is displayed at all times include Speed, Incline, Time, Distance Traveled, Calories, Pulse and Pace. There is also a 1/4 mile track feature and a Peak and Valley graph for different programs.
… message board system

This model has an integrated message board feature. In essence this feature consists of scrolling messages directed at the user in order to guide them through the workout. You can think of the message board just like having an instructor standing next to you advising you on every feature of the treadmill’s operation. The message board will also review your entire workout after you have completed your workout so that you can see your progress.

… workout programs

This model has six preset programs including cardio training and fat burning specific programs. In addition to these there are two heart rate programs and two user defined programs.
… wireless heart rate monitor

Although this model is fitted with a normal contact type heart rate monitor, additionally it features a wireless heart rate monitor. By wearing the supplied chest strap a wireless signal is sent to the treadmill’s computer which is then able to show your current heart rate on the display screen. This has the advantage of not having to place your hands on the contact grips in order to take a heart rate reading.
… wireless heart rate control

This treadmill comes equipped with Heart Rate Control with 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 workouts.

This dynamic feedback loop provided by the heart rate control feature ensures that you are exercising in your target heart zone. This method of training is popular with athletes as it allows them to derive the greatest benefit from their workout.

… Bluetooth capable

This feature allows the transfer of workout data from the treadmill to a smart device such as a phone or tablet via a Bluetooth connection. Using the free Sole app, users can download and track their data or transfer it to the Fitbit, Record, Mapmyrun, or Apple Health apps.
… iPOD connection

The treadmill has speakers built in to the control console. To make use of this facility you simply connect your iPOD, or MP3 player to the auxiliary input jack. You are then able to experience your favorite music during your workout without being encumbered with headphone wires.
… workout fans

This model is equipped with twin workout cooling fans incorporated into the console. Just hit a button and you can have a cooling breeze to keep you comfortable during even the most intensive workout.

.. safety key

A magnetic 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.

… foldaway design

This model 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.

The folding mechanism incorporates an “Easy Assist” folding design. This feature allows you to release the deck, step back and the deck unfolds itself while you watch. The Easy Assist Folding deck design is unique to Sole and makes unfolding your treadmill all too easy.

The folding mechanism also features a “Safety Lock” deck design that locks the deck into place when the treadmill is in the upright position. When in its folded position the convenient transport wheels allow the treadmill to be rolled away to a suitable storage location.
