Under the deck of the Healthrider H95t treadmill is an advanced shock absorption system that cushions each foot strike and reduce the impact on your joints up to 15% (as compared to road running). It also has a combination of the polyurethane cushioning on the tread belt for impact absorption, plus the impact-isolation system on the deck. It is adjustable so you can find the right comfort. These features, along with a big 2.75 CHP treadmill motor, a 20" x 60" deck, 325-lb user capacity, and challenging 12% power incline, make the Healthrider H95t an amazing find at under $1000.
As for motivation and entertainment, the Healthrider H95t comes with a built-in sound system right on the console. You can plug in any MP3 player or iPod® to the music port and listen to your favorites tunes through 3" high-excursion drivers in the speakers while following one of 22 treadmill workouts programmed into the Healthrider H95t. Or choose an iFit® Live workout available via direct download from the internet where you’ll enjoy running virtual trails all over the world. With a paid iFit subscription, you can also select a Jillian Michaels designed workout, again downloaded right to your treadmill. Still not challenged enough? Then simply press the Workout Intensity Control on any program, to amp up the intensity level and really start the blood pumping.
On sale at $999 (MSRP: $1999), the Healthrider H95t is a near clone of its cousin model, the NordicTrack A2750 Pro treadmill, also sale priced at $999. Treadmill reviews are high on both models, giving them above average scores for the powerful motor, big running deck, cushioning, feature-rich console, overall quality and design, and the affordable cost. The Icon Fitness customer service is hit-and-miss, unfortunately, and you will have to pay a couple hundred extra to extend the 1-year parts/labor warranty, but the free shipping helps keep the final price down. Both the Healthrider H95t treadmill and the NordicTrack are great-looking machines and incredible deals at $999.
