What will excite you...
All the horsepower you need for intensive workouts
It's impossible to go wrong with this motor; very powerful and in a class of its own bringing smoothness, efficiency and performance to extreme exercises, with the least noise. The treadmill tops speeds of 15 mph giving serious runners value for money. The professional trainer or ace athlete will have no worries as this treadmill is designed to perfect their fitness goals. The motor comes with a five year warranty for parts and labor.
The walking belt is excellent and cushioning is superior
At 21.5˝ x 60" you have the space to accommodate any type of runner. The bigger running area combines well with the powerful motor and drive components to power intense workouts and boost user confidence.
This is one of the best impact tolerant cushioning technologies operating in the market providing a surface that is safer than a running track or pavement.
Deck has reversible feature
The capability of reversing the deck and presenting a new running surface reduces wear and tear and prolongs the shelf life of the deck. This is a useful feature particularly when you will be pounding the machine into the basement.
Inclines offer excellent variation
Incline variations up to 20% offer more realistic simulation of tougher outdoor conditions, and this is great news for athletes that are constantly pushing the frontiers of their fitness goals.
Touch screen high definition TV
The 15" touchscreen high definition TV provides all the entertainment you will need as you statistically analyze your fitness workout to the bare bones.
Warranty is exceptionally good
The Motor and MCB are covered for 5 years parts and labor; all other components are covered for 2 years parts and 1 year labor; the wear items have1 year for parts as well as labor. This is an excellent warranty which may remain unclaimed owing to the superior quality, durability and dependability of treadmill parts and the drive system.
What will stump you...
Tech savvy machine but at a huge price
This is a massive machine calling for a gargantuan investment not less than the price of a good used car and then some. But this represents the highest of the high end; you can crib about the touch screen console or any other electronic gizmos but you can't deny the quality of the materials and parts. This is definitely a blue chip investment, and not for the faint of heart.
The drive system, the core of the machine, is awesome and of extreme quality raising the bar on efficiency and performance. But the techno savvy electronics inputs do tend to push the price unreasonably high. Overpriced hunk, says the little bird.Think of the "Take My Breath Away" song before you look at the price tag. If you have bags of loot, this is an option.
