XTERRA TRX3500 Folding Treadmill – Excellent Features!

The XTERRA TRX3500 Folding Treadmill is a good option for shoppers with smaller treadmill budgets. It meets performance standards set for higher-priced treadmills. I also like how the TRX3500 supports two user-profiles and delivers a variety of customizable exercise programs.

Key features include a two-ply 60” x 20” workout surface; a 3.0 HP drive motor; power incline to 12 percent; 30 preset workout programs; and a heart rate controlled workout program that works with a wireless chest strap (not included). Additionally, the console can store two user-profiles and lets each user store two custom-designed treadmill workouts.

Workout data is shown on a 6.5” LCD with blue backlighting for easy reading. An animated racetrack graphic illustrates your progress, and the window displays multiple data points at once. For comparison, many other low-priced treadmills have smaller readouts and require scanning to show different data fields.

You can pair an Apple or Android mobile device via Bluetooth with the TRX3500 Treadmill, and the fitness machine will automatically export your calorie burn, distance covered, heart rate, and other treadmill exercise statistics. The free XTERRA Fitness app is also compatible with Fitbit wearables and other fitness mobile apps.

ProForm Performance 800i Treadmill – A Great Beginner Model!

Are you looking for a beginner treadmill? The ProForm Performance 800i is a great option to consider. The ProForm Smart Performance 800i is an excellent treadmill for walking and jogging. For the more serious runner, it will not be challenging enough with the motor power of just 2.75 CHP.

The incline of 10 % is the usual standard range and actually on the low end, but the -2% decline rounds it out to tone and strengthens additional muscles.  Also, the 800i running deck itself is a decent size. The length is similar to the standard used in commercial gyms, which means it will fit most everyone’s stride.

The 800i has an almost endless supply of workout sessions at your disposal via the 50 that comes built-in along with the iFit app. There are enough programs to motivate and keep you active on the treadmill, pushing you to new levels.

The 14-inch full-color capacitive touch display may not seem like a big deal these days with 22” screens coming out. But this is a good size that is large enough to read and follow your stats and instructors. The EKG Grip Pulse Sensor allows you to monitor your heart rate without having to break your stride or concentration.

ProForm 905 CST Treadmill – Well Worth the Price!

The ProForm 905 CST Treadmill has a lot going for it. It comes with a large running surface, a strong motor, and a ton of pre-programmed workouts to choose from. It also comes with one of the industry’s best shock absorption systems, and it folds for storage.

The 905 CST comes with a 3.0 CHP motor. When it comes to home treadmills, we should expect the motors to be anywhere between 2.0-4.0 CHP. Stronger is better because it means the motor won’t have to work as hard during use (which also means it should last longer).

The 905 CST has a running surface of 20″ x 60″. This treadmill is off to a good start with this operating surface size. ProForm equipped the 905 CST with its patented ProShox Cushioning system, which will significantly reduce the compression forces through your legs.

The ProForm 905 CST has 30 built-in workouts. With this many workouts to choose from, I don’t see how anyone could get bored on this machine. Also, like all ProForm machines, this treadmill is compatible with iFit. This workout app gives you access to unlimited workouts led by professional personal trainers.

NordicTrack S22i Studio Cycle – Immersive Riding Experience!

The NordicTrack S22i Studio Cycle is a luxury indoor exercise bike offering a lot of features, a very sharp style, and a smooth ride. This bike is one of my personal favorites for its lightweight magnetic flywheel that barely makes a sound when riding.

The S22i is very efficient in simulating a road bike, as the flywheel is one of the smoothest on the market. Unlike other indoor exercise bikes, the pedaling is smooth and natural, allowing you to forget you are stationary nearly.

The S22i comes with NordicTrack’s steepest bike incline/decline range. Work your muscles with extremes of -10 and +20 percent! The slope can be controlled manually or by workout programs. This feature is fun to use with Google Maps workouts, which automatically adjust the bike’s slope according to data about the terrain.

The S22i Studio Cycle is a digitally connected home exercise bike with 22″ monitor enabled for iFit Coach. This elite fitness machine can stream LiveCast videos filmed at the iFit Coach spin studio, and it also lets you cycle in virtual outdoor environments.
