Star Trac Pro Treadmill Review

The Star Trac Pro Treadmill with stylish aluminium frame, ipulse system and emergency stop handrail button.

This is an innovative, commercial-grade treadmill for home fitness use. The Star Trac Pro treadmill boasts a stunningly curved body and comes with the IntelliTrac self-guiding display which creates a more intuitive exercise workout environment.

This treadmill is equipped with the SoftTrac system, an advancement on the patented Impact Absorption System, and a powerful 2.5-horsepower DC motor.

A Dynamic Heart Rate Control program keeps a user’s heart rate at a user-specified training range, thus creating an interval training effect for optimum fitness training.

There are 2 personal fans built into the console for the ultimate in fitness workout comfort featuring iPulse dedicated heart rate window, a user-friendly console, 3 entertainment/data ports, and an aero bar innovative handle for extra stability, this exercise treadmill is loaded with features to make your workout comfortable and effective.

The distinctive design has curved arm supports, console post and rounded console,and has been created with the consultation of Designworks USA, a BMW Group Company, and input from individual users, health club owners, personal trainers and fitness directors.

The equipment is both stable and durable and includes the proprietary SoftTrac running system augmented with three cells of cushioning instead of two, allowing for more comfort and durability during fitness training.

A unique feature is the “Aero Bar” – a handle on the rounded cusp of the console, designed to make it easy for fitness users to grasp—a location that many people already grip for stability, especially when climbing.

Another example of this treadmill enhancing the exercise experience is evidenced by diamond-plate footpads located on each side rail, which enables users to monitor their weight if they so choose.

Designed to be inviting and approachable, the treadmill features the IntelliTrac intuitive animated display. An enhancement on the typical dot matrix display, the interface is self-guided and prevents information overload by only showing the user appropriate keys for that specific instant during the fitness workout.

For ease, the user may also choose one of the automated fitness Workout Partner selections—Athletic Partner, Climbing Partner or Weight Management Partner.

This model also includes the popular Personal Training Studio option, which enables 50 personal fitness trainers to design and save their own custom “signature” exercise programs on each machine.

The heart rate monitoring system has been improved with the new iPulse heart rate system, a dedicated heart rate window that requires no scrolling, while an interactive flashing heart provides visual confirmation of pulse detection.

An interactive heart rate chart enables the user to more easily see how he or she is progressing during the fitness workout.

The display has good user functionality including built-in holders for water bottles, a personal stereo/CD player and reading material.

The revolutionary IntelliTrac design easily guides fitness users through a more enjoyable workout. A self-guiding display, IntelliTrac creates an intuitive graphical display that only shows the appropriate keys that may need to be adjusted during different parts of the fitness workout.

A dedicated heart rate window, iPulse displays a flashing heart for audio and visual confirmation of pulse detection. With an interactive hear rate chart you can keep track of your progress throughout your fitness workout.

Using Polar Telemetry or a contact heart rate system with dynamic heart rate control you can easily keep track of your pulse rate while the Star Trac Pro Treadmill automatically adjusts the levels of your treadmill to ensure you stay within your target heart rate zone.

An advanced monitoring feature designed into the treadmill allows the user the convenience of wirelessly “beaming” console data via an infrared port from your exercise treadmill to a device compatible with Palm OS, such as a PDA.

Two personal three-inch sized fans are incorporated on each side of the display. Users can adjust the fan to “off,” “low” and “high” setting according to their own comfort. An automatic shut-off results when the treadmill is powered down.

Allowing users to keep water bottles and personal electronic devices nearby, the console also displays workout feedback in a dedicated and scrolling format. With a dedicated window to keep users up to date on the status of their workout, the Star Trac Pro exercise treadmill displays speed, inline, time elapsed, calories burned, distance and heart rate.

For the other feedback features that may be less important for guiding fitness workouts, the display features a scrolling screen that displays time remaining, vertical distance traveled, laps completed, pace (min/mile), and calories/hour. Includes 9 preprogrammed fitness workouts.

Users are not required to use the scales to start their treadmill workout, but also have the option to weigh themselves without activating the treadmill. Acquiring the exact weight of the user enables the treadmill to more accurately produce a caloric expenditure readout.

The treadmill operates at speeds from 0.5-10 mph on 110 volts and 0.5 to 12.5 mph on 220 volts. This model also includes the popular “soft start at zero,” which engages the treadmill belt slowly for a safe start every time. The elevation range is 0-15% and has a load-sensing auto shut-off feature. Two separate stop buttons are highly visible in key areas.

New shroud designs provide easy access for maintenance, as well as early detection warning systems for common wear items in heavy-use facilities. In addition, the Pro treadmill features a maintenance diagnostic mode that allows facility management to track hours, miles and specific programs used on each piece of equipment.
