For people with a lifelong interest in keeping fit, the acquisition and maintenance of equipment, such as a fitness treadmill, can be problematic. When dealing with less expensive machines and lesser brands, it’s typical for the cost of repairing such a machine to exceed its original price. This leaves the consumer in a dilemma as to whether repair the machine or buy a new one. If the decision is to buy a new one, but one of poor quality, the cycle is bound to repeat. The solution? Invest in superior quality equipment that is less likely to require expensive repairs. Although considerably higher in price, such a machine is specifically designed to be durable and well made. Here’s some information about a treadmill we’re quite keen on: the Vision T9550HRT treadmill with premier console.
4.5 out of 5.0 stars
The console on any piece of exercise equipment is a critical feature to consider. The console measures both your progress and provides motivating feedback to keep you interested and engaged. The Vision T9550HRT has all the programming features you’re likely to need, whether you’re a beginner or an expert user. We especially like the four interactive heart rate programmes as well as an exclusive and challenging Sprint 8® exercise protocol workout. Sprint 8® is a series of eight 60-meter (70-yard) sprints. Each sprint is performed at a successively higher rate of speed, starting at 30% and ending at 55%. All this is built into the T9550HRT, so it’s a completely automatic and highly effective way to work out. Sprint 8® was developed in conjunction with Phil Campbell, a noted fitness authority who is an expert in anaerobic exercise, a type of exercise that’s touted as a way to combat the decline in energy and muscle mass that’s common in our middle years. Regular Sprint 8® workouts also help to prevent weight gain.
The first feature we noticed about this treadmill is its heavy gauge frame, a sure indication of the machine’s durability and quality. Another small but important feature is the treadmill’s metal end caps that make it much safer and durable than one with plastic end caps. The console allows up to 6 users to store their workout data in a personal workout calendar. The LCD display is full-colour. The screen display is clear, whether you’re reading instructions or enjoying one of the attractive background scenes during your workout.
