The Sole F80 is one of those classic treadmill machines that you would have only once found in a hotel gym suite of an expensive health club. Now people demand that same level of craftsmanship in a treadmill they can use at home. Treadmill sales for home use are now through the roof. At Christmas alone shopping sites sell truck loads of them as people want to begin the new year in fitness.
Why would you bother paying for a gym membership when you can get the same quality of experience in your home and you don’t have to travel? We now have all the entertainment devices we need already in our homes, so why not get a professional piece of exercise equipment to use at your leisure as well? The public have been the driving force behind this. As more treadmill units are sold each year the prices have come down and the specifications has gone up.
So if you want a treadmill that has a one touch incline you can put that on your list. But how about one that can store the data of multiple users in your home. So if you and your wife and 3 children want to use the Sole F80 treadmill it can store all your height, weight and workout stats. You can then reference these over time and get a feel for how your fitness training and individual goals are going.
Then if you decide you want to listen to music you can pop in your iPod or Mp3 player into the minijack port and listen to your favourite tunes. But why not go one step further? If you need some visual stimulation during your run you can pop onto YouTube and watch videos or music right from the LCD screen. Or you can browse your favorite websites and catch up on some reading or current affairs.
Personally i like to listen to internet radio on my Sole F80. It helps me to tune out and it also means i don’t have to browse videos or change any that annoy me. I just let the radio show run as i “run”. Rewind a decade or so and this would have been completely impossible. Now you can do it for the one time investment of $1500. Which in my opinion is worth it as the machine is top quality and has everything you need to enjoy a challenging but entertaining workout.
