This is the new version of the popular non-folding treadmill from Sole Fitness. Building upon the solid reputation of the Sole S73 treadmill, this version includes a bigger motor with a 3.75 CHP unit and a larger (60″ x 22″) tread belt.


The treadmill is ready to use with a total of 10 workouts. These programs comprise 6 pre-set, 2 User Defined, and 2 Heart Rate Control programs.


There are handrail-mounted toggle switches, making it easier to control the speed and incline, and a heart rate control feature that allows you to exercise within your optimal training zone. A built-in sound system allows for the connection of an iPod or MP3 player.


The unit is endorsed by a lifetime warranty on the frame, motor, and deck, 5 years on the electronics, and 2 years in labor (in-home service).


Here are the main highlights of this model:




The treadmill utilizes a smooth and powerful 3.75 CHP Continuous Duty motor which has been designed for a long life. This is an industrial-quality motor with a large diameter, all-steel zinc-coated, balanced flywheel that results in a vibration walking surface.


The flywheel assists the motor in running cooler and with smaller currents being drawn, which helps extend motor life. Another benefit is allowing for a low start speed of 0.5 mph or 1 mph.


Heart Rate Monitor


The conveniently positioned Hand Grip Pulse Monitors located on the handlebars are supplemented by the optional chest strap, which provides the advantage of taking readings of your heart rate and feeding them back to the treadmill console by wireless telemetry.


Heart Rate Control


When this program is selected, the “Heart Rate Control” feature of this treadmill automatically adjusts the intensity of your workout in accordance with your heart rate, which is fed back via the grip pulse monitor or via the optional wireless telemetry strap, so that you are always in the optimum target fitness zone.


LCD Display


This model has a large (7.5″) LCD Blue Display. This attractive display will show Speed, Incline, Time, Distance Traveled, Calories, Pulse, and Pace. Additionally, there is 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 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 it, so you can see your progress.


Workout Programs


The key to staying motivated when using a treadmill and achieving your fitness goals is having a variety of preset programs. The treadmill gives you 10 workouts to choose from, split into the following functional groups:



  • 6 Built-in Programs

  • 2 User Defined Programs

  • 2 Heart Rate Programs


Hand Rail Controls


Toggle switches have been built into the handrail to enable the user to adjust both the speed and incline. Using these handrail-mounted switches allows the user to make the necessary adjustments without having to reach forward to press buttons on the control console and possibly disrupt their stride.


Spacious Tread Belt


This model incorporates a long (60″) and extra-wide (22″) running belt. Some treadmills in this price range have narrower or shorter belts. Having a longer tread belt provides more room, which is an advantage for taller users with longer than average stride lengths or if you intend to use the treadmill for running.


iPod Connectivity


In order to keep you entertained, the treadmill comes with a built-in sound system. Integrated into the treadmill’s console, this sound system allows you to plug your iPod or MP3 Player into the auxiliary input jack and listen to your music collection through the sound system. The iPod can rest in the accessory tray for easy reach.


Warranty Details


The treadmill is backed with a lifetime warranty on the frame, motor, and deck, with 5 years on electronics and 2 years of in-home labor.
