10 Reasons You Need A Sole Treadmill

Fitness, now there’s a thing. Always we want to and, ultimately, always we have a thousand and one excuses not to.

If you are anything like me then you are always going to start tomorrow, or you don’t have the right equipment.

Actually, that last one need not be a problem anymore as Sole, manufacturers of versatile and affordable treadmills, have the equipment angle completely covered.

So, in the best tradition of all countdowns, I give you the 10 reasons you need a Sole treadmill.

10: You Owe it to yourself

You do, you know.

Keeping fit is more than just something to do in the New Year, it is a lifestyle choice that will keep you healthy for longer, and that means alive for longer. Walking has been shown to be the best form of exercise to keep your heart happy and, while it isn’t going to give you those abs you keep thinking about, it will keep you active, and that has to be a good start, no?

9: It’s Easy to Store a Sole f85 Treadmill

Apart from being voted as a “Best Buy” by the Treadmill Doctor, the Sole f85 Treadmill is also described as the best folding treadmill on the market.

So, all those excuses about training equipment taking up too much room, no longer hold true.

The deck features an ‘easy release’ function that allows it to unfold itself when released and safety locks mean it will never unfold unless you decide that is what you want.

8: More Horsepower for your Buck

The new Sole F85 and Sole S77 offers a 4.0 CHP DC-type motor, as opposed to 3.5 CHP for the earlier model F80.

This allows speeds up to 12 mph, more than enough for a brisk walk or a decent jog. In fact, this engine has the highest specification of any engine offered by Sole in their treadmills.

7: Robust Running Deck

With a running deck width of 22 inches and a weight maximum of 400 pounds, this treadmill is more than capable of getting you healthy.

It is also robust enough to take all the running you can throw at it. In fact the deck incorporates proprietary stealth technology that offers cushioning up to 40% better than you can expect if you were running on asphalt.

6: Increased Program Options

With no less than six standard programs, along with two custom programs and two heart programs, the Sole f85 Treadmill will cope with every type of exercise you can envisage from a gentle stroll to the most demanding of hill runs.

Heart rate is measured through pulse grips and a chest strap which is provided as standard.

5: Easy to read Display

The console that comes with the Sole f85 Treadmill uses a clear blue LED technology to display all the information you need.

Options such as your speed, the deck incline, the time of the current session, the distance travelled, calories used up, pulse rate and pace are displayed at all times so you can instantly gauge and adjust your performance.

4: Highest Spec Sole Product

If you like your treadmills, and after using the Sole f85 Treadmill you will really begin to like your treadmills, then you will be pleased to know that you have purchased the best product in the Sole range.

If you look at the new Sole f85, compared to the previous model f80, then with the f85 you have a more powerful engine, a bigger display as well as a 400 pound capacity (as opposed to 375 pounds on the f80). Overall the Sole f85 Treadmill is not just best in its class, but also the best product you are likely to buy.

3: Music while you run

So, this may not be your favorite way to exercise, but for me, I need music to push me on.

With its MP3 compatible speakers you can connect anything from your iPod to your stereo system to the Sole f85 treadmill and then walk in time to your favorite beats.

2: Sole Treadmill Lifetime Guarantees

The sole f85 Treadmill comes with three lifetime guarantees on the frame, motor and deck.

On top of these there is also a 5 year guarantee on the electronics. The guarantees are real as well. Take a look at the user reviews on Amazon and you will see that Sole responds to its customers quickly and effectively and, in most cases, responds within a week of the initial query with most problems being resolved in the customer’s home.

1: Favorable Industry and Customer Reviews

This is the clincher for me, hence it is number one in the list.

When I buy a product like this I need to know what people think, and not just those in the industry. The thing is, customers love the Sole f85 treadmill and you only have to look on an independent site like Amazon to see their feelings.

“My wife and I have been using our new Sole treadmill for six weeks and love it.”

“Good solid machine, worth the money.”

If the man on the street (or at least on the treadmill) loves the product, then who am I to not listen, and you should listen as well.

The Sole f85 treadmill is the only piece of exercise equipment you are going to need in your living room or any other room in your house.
