NORDIC TRACK C2255 Treadmill
All I gotta say is ... Wow! I absolutely love my Nordic Track treadmill!
I originally purchased this in January of 2007 based on the nagging advice of my doctor. He said, "You are much too fat, and you need to lose some weight!"
I replied, "Ouch! No sugar coating there, huh, Doc?"
He continued, "I suggest that you start some sort of group exercise program or play a team sport to get into better shape. Your excess weight is affecting your health!"
"How about if I buy a treadmill and work out at home?" I said.
He replied, "I wouldn't recommend it. Most people cannot remain motivated to work out on their own."
I left the health clinic somewhat flustered, and vowed to make a change in my life for the better. Once I got home, I immediately got online and purchased this treadmill.
Needless to say, since using this treadmill 2- 4 days a week for over a year now (and losing over 20 pounds in the process), I am more than pleased!
The Nordic Track C2255 has been very reliable for me, runs smoothly, has variable speed settings of up to 10 mph, and has an adjustable incline rate of up to 12%. Several workout options are preprogrammed into the machine.
But, I also purchased an additional beginner level "iFit Workout card" which plugs into a slot on the treadmill and provides 20 pre-programmed workouts.
In addition, the tread mill has a shock absorbing deck (which really helps if you have bad knees like me), a fan to cool you off, and folds up for easy storage when not in use.
Based on the positive experience that I've had thus far, I believe that many people would find this treadmill a suitable addition to their home exercise program as well!
