Key Features: This is a folding treadmill running with a powerful motor of 2.5 horsepower. The maximum lift of this motor is 800 pounds and you can always do the professional training on this treadmill with its 15 levels of inclination. The 2-ply belt will never deceive you and you can continue to do your workouts for years without worrying about a broken belt. The machine is black and grey to match most of the gym areas at homes.

An LCD display gives enough information about your workout programs so you can always know where you are standing in your fitness mission. Not only will you know the time consumed, distance covered, calories burned etc. but you can even save this information on a USB and then upload it online to keep a track of your workouts and their results. It’s up to you whether you want to work out on this treadmill to lose weight, shed some pounds, become a professional athlete or a mixture of all since the treadmill already has those programs installed on it.

The maximum area for you to do your walking, jogging and running on the treadmill is 56 inches long and 20 inches wide to let you exercise with the peace of mind. The maximum weight that this treadmill can afford is 300 pounds; perfect for home users. While working out you can hear your favorite music from your iPod or by connecting it to the machine and hearing from onboard speakers. The maximum speed you can achieve on this treadmill is 11mph. When you are done working out on the machine you can store it easily by folding it.
