Livestrong Fitness LS15.0T Treadmill Review

very nice

By Dave on March 27, 2013
I also purchased this at Dick's Sporting Goods this past weekend. I had planned on testing out one of the lower Livestrong models, but this unit was on sale for $1199, even less than the LS13 on the website. Apparently Dick's is phasing out their connection with Livestrong because of the Lance Armstrong thing. Too bad for them, but good for us (and the company that makes Livestrong, Johnson, makes models for other treadmill lines, so there's no concerns about them going bankrupt and unable to service warranty claims).

At the regular price, it's probably a decent value - there are likely other options to consider at that price point. But at the sales price, it's really compelling. The treadmill is very solid, almost no flexing even at sub 8 min mile pace. Features as compared with Icon fitness models (e.g. Nordic Trac, Proform, Epic, etc.) were a bit minimal, but I think that's a good thing as the manufacturer then puts more into the most important components that influence reliability (e.g. motor, frame, belts, rollers, etc.).

I had been looking for a new treadmill to replace an old Proform for several weeks. There are very few reviews for Livestrong on the internet, so hopefully this will help others. Reviews for Icon models are really all over the place, especially for reliability right out of the box. That was a big turn-off for me (wasn't thrilled with my old Proform) and I did compare Livestrong with a Nordic Trac and Sole model. Nordic Track was okay, but not a big fan of all the bells and whistles I'd probably never use. Wasn't impressed with the Sole at all - frame did not feel solid.

Sole TT8 Treadmill Customer Review

Lives up to the Hype

December 23, 2010 - By Mike C
I have been researching treadmills for a long time now. I wanted to make sure that I purchased a treadmill that could withstand many, many, miles. I run marathons and ultra marathons so I didnt want a flimsy pc of equipment, but at the same time I didnt want to spend 5k either. I once ran a marathon(26.2) on the treadmill at my gym just for fun. All of my research lead me to this 2011 Sole TT8, and now that I'm running on it I see why. This is a solid pc of equipment and stands up to the treadmills in the Gym, maybe even better. For 2,300 dollars I cant imagine that there is a better treadmill on the market, you just have to run on it one time to see what I'm talking about.
I did read that you can assemble this in about 15 minutes, maybe if you work for Sole and put treadmills together for a living it would be possible, otherwise you are looking at about an hour or more. Pretty simple assembly though, nothing complicated.
Very happy with my purchase.

High-end Home Treadmill That Delivers

February 12, 2011 - By DocGreg
First off, to the user who commented on his unit being unstable, I would recommend that you call the service department or contact Sole directly as you may have a specific problem with your unit (e.g., motor or flywheel) that they can help you address.

I recently purchased this unit, it was shipped free to my home, arrived five days after purchase, and I just set it up yesterday. I have been a regular gym treadmill user and have become used to running on various models. This is the first home treadmill I have purchased.

PROS: The unit is very stable and solidly built. The assembly took about an hour from start to finish and was fairly intuitive. Being tall (I'm 6'6" and 230lbs), the 22" wide deck and 60" length is comparable to what one would find on a high-end unit in any gym. The incline feature cycles smoothly, and the unit is very sturdy even at high speed (greater than 8.0 mph).

CONS: The motor cycles very slowly between speed changes. For example, it can take upwards of thirty seconds to go from a comfortable running speed (such as 6.5 mph) down to a comfortable walking speed (such as 3.5 mph), which can make for a somewhat awkward transition. I suspect this is a specific built-in programming feature by the manufacturer to prolong/protect the motor. The display is average and there are limited programmable features. The fans and speakers are less-than-desirable for a high-end unit.

BOTTOM LINE: This is a non-folding treadmill built for running. Overall, I'm very happy with this unit as I make the switch from running on professional models at the gym to running more at home. It is sturdy, smooth, quiet, and first impression is that it will hold up well to a lot of use. Ideally, the speed transitions would be a little faster (which, it seems, the 3.5 HP motor should be able to handle) and the control panel would have better features more consistent with the price tag.

surprisingly good

March 30, 2012 - By kingofsting03
For a $2,300 list price, I was very skeptical about how well this unit would perform. I didn't like the idea of a quick assembly, low cost treadmill. I remembered the endless hours I spent assembling a Bowflex back in the day, and that unit left plenty to be desired in the durability department.

But no, there was nothing to be worried about. The Sole TT8 Treadmill is as solid as a rock! It's sturdily built from quality parts. Somehow, the company has devised a machine that is both durable and inexpensive.

Overall, it performs as you'd expect a modern treadmill of this nature to perform. There are different programs to exercise on, health metrics that you can input, speed/elevation adjustments, etc. As one reviewer noted, the speed changes ARE darned pokey, which gets annoying. But unless you are running lots of intervals, you probably won't be bothered by this. For this low of a price, I find it hard to complain about such small things. It doesn't have the most fancy-shmancy options on it, but its has enough to get the job done.

I've only been using it for a few months, so it's hard to be certain about the long term durability or customer service when things go wrong. But as one might notice with, say, a Honda, you may never need to go to the company for service on this device...I doubt it will break down in the short or medium term.

Smooth Fitness 7.35 Folding Treadmill Customer Review

Smooth Fitness 7.35 Treadmill

July 21, 2012 - By Michael S. Mckinney
I have been delighted with this treadmill since I ordered it over 1 year ago. The delivery was great - it comes in folded down in one great big box. Assembly was very easy. The cables were pre-run though the tubes, the directions for assembly were easy to follow, and it was packed very efficiently!

I have run several hundred miles and after one year the treadmill shows little to no wear. The belt looks like it did day one! all the mechanical parts appear to be solid and when I run there is no shaking, unusual noises or broken parts. I run a lot and tend to be hard on treadmills and this has handled the first year flawlessly.

The only thing that could use some development for the future is the fan. It is pretty worthless for cooling. I use a large fan for every run anyway so this isn't a deal-breaker for me. Outside of the fan, this treadmill is super solid and I would recommend for anyone!

I'm not sure all of the negative reviews are legit

July 2, 2012 - By Brian Pozar (Visalia, CA United States)
I spent a lot of time researching the treadmill I wanted to buy. I looked at places like Consumer Reports and Treadmill Doctor for advise. I also relied heavily on reviews.

I just received a 7.35 on 6/29/12, purchased directly on Smooth's website, and so far it is working great.

After looking at Sole and Nordictrack at my local Sears and some of the other brands at the local sporting goods store, I was let down. Nothing seemed to have the quality I wanted except for non-folding models from high-end companies like Precor. But I needed a folding model and kept coming back to Smooth for the features and apparent quality (Consumer Reports gives high marks).

I almost let the bad reviews sway me but then I thought about the fact that the competition is perfectly capable of posting smearing reviews. I can't tell you what percent of negative reviews are made up or legitimate but I can tell you that you should not count Smooth out during your evaluation process. I took a leap of faith by ordering it and I'm very happy that I did. I don't doubt that there have been quality issues and lemons, that's a part of manufacturing, but my experience has been very positive.

By the way, I'm 260 lbs and I can jog on this thing without a problem. The quality of the machine and the packaging that it comes is is outstanding. You feel good when it is delivered that it arrived to you without damage.

I will say, the fan and speakers do indeed suck. Just keep a radio and bigger fan close by.

One note about their customer service. When I placed my original order, they ended up being out of stock. Their customer service called me to apologize for the delay that would cause and offered me a free mat to go under the treadmill.

If I experience any problems, I'll update this review.

Nautilus T514 Treadmill Customer Review

A fitness center favorite comes to the home

November 9, 2009 - By Derek G VINE™ VOICE

To start, I echo another reviewer in saying that my treadmill was received in bad shape as the base frame and wheels had burst completely through the bottom of the cardboard box. I also discovered evidence of discoloration on the plastic side panels that are attached to the control panel. My best guess is it was subjected to a lot of weight being stacked on it as it traveled first by airline and then delivered by semi truck via a freight company. There was no use blaming either company as they would just deny everything but considering two of three reviewers report delivery problems, this suggests Nautilus may have a problem with their packaging. (My money's on the airline trashing it). Fortunately, aside from some scuffs and a little pressure discoloration on the side panels, the treadmill seems okay.

Assembly is quite easy but because the product is heavy you will likely need assistance. You simply lift the pre-assembled control panel straight up and screw in a nut and bolt on each side with the provided hardware. After that, bend the handlegrips toward you and screw them in. Finally, attach the two side panels to each side of the control panel and you're ready to go. I found the left side was easy to screw everything into while the right side of the machine I wasn't able to screw in the parts without a lot of exertion. I most likely stripped some threads to get the screws tightened in so I wonder if there may be some quality issues in the manufacturing process. Perhaps it was the first day on the job for one of the people drilling holes in the frame. I also found that the wheels didn't roll but that may have been due to the delivery problems.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before assembly be sure you place the box in the room you ultimately wish to use your treadmill in. Even when folded up, the machine is 32 inches wide; larger than many doorways.

This treadmill is my first but I have used many others at membership gyms and at friends' houses. Comparing this treadmill to others, the first thing that comes to mind is, at a whopping 72 inches in length with 54 inches of space to walk or run on, this treadmill is much longer than the residential treadmills I usually see. The second thing I noticed was I was scared to death of pulling this 200+ lb machine around with the bed tilted up. I later figured out they have a tiny shock absorber to help slow things down when you're bringing the treadmill bed back down to the floor. Even with the shock absorber, don't let go of the bed as it's dropping as it will still hit the floor with a loud thunk (and may even put a hole in it.) I wish there was a way to put a pin between the bed and base for added safety while moving it. If you wish to store the machine you will need a space that is 37"L x 32"W x 66"H.

I knocked off a star because Nautilus gives you only five feet of electric cord for a three foot wide machine. The plug is located almost on the right edge of the machine, meaning if your electric plugs are located to the left, you must place the treadmill within two feet of the electric plug. To make matters worse, the instructions specifically say you can't use an extension cord or surge protector. Nautilus needs to give residential customers a longer cord. I also found it odd that we have to go to the front of the machine, to a spot next to where the electric cord plugs in, to turn the machine on and off. There is no power button on the control panel and it doesn't appear to shut down during inactivity. Both of those should be fixed to make the treadmill more energy efficient. I was also upset to read that Nautilus wants us to lubricate the machine with 100% silicone lubricant before use. If this is as important as the instruction book indicates, then a small amount should be provided as most households don't have this lying around (WD-40 isn't an acceptable substitute). In fact, the only thing I could find at a large hardware chain was a can of Dupont Teflon/Silicone lubricant. Fortunately, a call to Nautilus confirmed this was okay to use. I still needed some direction on how much to use as the instructions were sparse. According to customer service at Nautilus, we should spray a line across the underside of the belt, roll the belt halfway around manually, then do it again. Until Nautilus starts providing lubricant with this treadmill, I suggest including LifeSpan Fitness 100% Silicone Treadmill Belt Lubricant in your order.

In comparison to other treadmills, there is none of the belt slippage as you run or walk in forward motion. In fact, this is the only treadmill I have used that doesn't have this annoying problem. The motor is quite powerful and fast too. The display shows you the time you have been running, the distance (in km or mph) you ran, and the estimated calories you have burned (always so little!) My favorite display flips between the mph you are running and how long it will take you to run a full mile. Unless you can run a mile in less than five minutes I see little reason to upgrade to the more expensive T516. This bed is rated to support 350 lbs of weight, and given the strength of the frame I think the number is conservative, so it should be able to hold everyone except South Carolinians. I found the walking belt to be centered perfectly but you can adjust the tension or move the belt to the left or right using an included hex key. I did find a problem with the plastic rails on each side of the bed. Nautilus wants us to stand on these when we start the treadmill, however I notice noise coming from them as if they are scraping the belt or bed. The noise stops once we move from the rails on to the walking belt itself.

Workouts consist of either manual or pre-programmed workout modes (i.e. climbing a hill, fast and slow intervals, a heart rate control program, or a custom value for time, speed, and incline that you can program yourself.) The T516 model gives you an extra of each of these programs (three instead of two.) The program features are all nice, but frankly I enjoy the manual mode the best because we have the incline level adjustment (0-12 degrees) using an up/down switch on the left handlebar and the speed control (0-12mph) using a switch on the right handlebar. The grips also include a metal heart rate monitor but I'm knocking off a star because I didn't find these to be very accurate; either that or my heart rate instantly jumps from 85 to 120 then back again. I think it's important people know their heart-rate accurately or they could easily over-exert themselves on a treadmill this powerful. The Polar brand chest strap heart rate monitor seems accurate and it works as long as you wet the electrodes first and strap it to your bare skin. Because of the yuck factor of the entire family using, and sweating on one Polar monitor, it could be a nice feature to include one or two more to make the treadmill more family friendly.

Customer service at Nautilus was very responsive and Courtney in particular was very friendly in spite of being bombarded with my questions. The so-called 10 year warranty is a little disingenuous because items defined as wear items (grips, foam, rubber, and plastic parts) have only a 90-day warranty and the belt has only a year warranty. In my opinion, anyone dropping this kind of money on a treadmill should have at least a one year on everything. Still, even the sweatiest of South Carolinians shouldn't be able to wear through the foam handlegrips. Maybe.

As I was reviewing everything, I couldn't help but think that this was a gymnasium strength treadmill that Nautilus suddenly decided to offer to residents without taking into consideration the special needs residential users have. Considering Nautilus also owns the famous Bowflex home gyms it seems odd that they haven't thought things through a little more. I'd like to give them high marks for the machine's strength, steel frame, and overall toughness but the little things like the power cord, the side rails, the metal heart rate monitors, and the disingenuous warranty make me hesitate a little. Above all, the treadmill packaging must be upgraded so it's idiot proof or Nautilus will be fielding a lot of calls from upset customers. I give them a solid three stars.

Hope the review helped.

Customer Review

Great lifetime value, built strongly !! March 17, 2011
I've been exercising on the Lifefitness' commercial model treadmill at my gym for over three years. It's a great treadmill, and I've never had any issues or complaints. Since it's a commercial model, it's huge and bulky; it's probably built to last long for the heavy usage at a gym or a fitness center. Well, that's good, except the price of over $5000. That's a half of ten grand. Their noncommercial models are maybe $1000 less, but I still can't say they are in an affordable price range. Having said that, the Sole F85 is well under $5000, to be exact it's now at $2000 with free shipping. I am mentioning the price first because at this price, I think the affordability comes first when considering a treadmill. And I think F85 is affordable without sacrificing the quality and the value compared to Lifefitness' overpriced models.

Assembling took about an hour by myself, and I did not have any issues with missing parts or mismatching joints. The assembly instruction wasn't the easiest thing to follow, but it did the job. One difficult thing in assembling was the weight. This machine is very heavy to move around, so I recommend finding the perfect spot to put this before you start assembling.

Operating was quick and easy for me since I've been using Lifefitness treadmills for a long time, but, generally, anyone can figure out the operation within a couple of minutes. All the buttons are big and responsive so it's easier to access when running fast. Both inclining and speeding was gradual but quick. Also, the safety key worked well; when I pulled it, the treadmill immediately slowed down and stopped. There are incline and speed buttons on the side bars as well, and that's kind of convenient for a quick change. Lastly and most importantly, it runs smooth.

I consider a couple of things seriously, however. A) Comfort. It is important to have enough space on the treadmill when running. F85 might be slightly smaller in width compare to Lifefitness' bigger model I am used to, but I did not feel crammed on this one either. The second to take seriously is shock absorption. I do not have strong knees and I can't run on the asphalt so it is important to have a good shock absorption system. I've been running around 3 miles/day a couple of times a week for over a month now, and I don't have any pain (yet) on my knees and feet. The final aspect to consider is the noise of the machine. I can tell Sole's F85 is quieter than Lifefitness' when under 5mph, but when I run around 6mph, I think the noise level is about same. But I do like that this machine is less noisier in low speed; this perk is particularly convenient, because often times I choose to run in low speed at night when my son is asleep, and fortunately, this machine is minimally noisy that it does not wake him up (he is quite the light sleeper).

There are some additional features I'd like to mention. The first is the cooling fan. There are two fans above the LCD screen, and it's only position adjustable (not speed). The size is quite small (like the ones in the computer box), so I didn't expect much, but actually, it was very nice to have them running while exercising. The fan speed is not too strong or weak; it just gives little breezes, but it feels different from not having one before. Another feature is the technology. This treadmill doesn't offer too much current technology such as ipod/iphone compatibility, usb port for data output, color lcd with catch animations and graphics, etc. And that's what I like about. Less technology is better on some things, I think, and this treadmill is one of them. I'm sure there's a treadmill that can support all kinds of devices and do everything wireless, but had the manufacturers put all these techie features in the F85, the price wouldn't be at this range. And it is no secret technology outdates too quickly, so I find this important. I've seen this happening on my ipod speakers and many iphone compatible accessories. I can't just change my treadmill every year. The LCD screen is not color or touch screen, and I could care less; I do not think it's necessary as well. However, there are those who would disagree. I also favor the fact that I can lift and position the deck, which can help save some room if you live in a small or apartment or simply want to make a little extra room around the machine. I find this feature pretty awesome!

There are a couple of cons. There are two deep pockets big enough for water bottles on the dash board and that works well for me. But there are other bottle holder pockets under the dash board, probably at knee height, and it's not a convenient spot to put and grab bottles while running. Another con are the speakers. I can connect my iPod (only audio input), but the speaker quality is not too good (this part of technology I do find important). I was not expecting too much, but these speakers can be better quality, considering the price of the machine.

Overall, the machine is easy to assemble and use, is affordable, and valuable (more motor power than Lifefitness' lower end model). Lastly, the quality of the machine is high; it's built in heavy steel, and is meant to last a very long time. So long as consumer takes good care of the machine, this treadmill could last years. The machine also comes with various warranties: lifetime on motor, deck, and frame, and 5 years on electronics, belt, rollers, and other small components, and 2 years on labor (this information can be found on the website). For all that is offered, this machine is perfect for anyone!

Very nice treadmill December 26, 2010
By Chad Lowe
This treadmill looks very nice and feels very solidly built. I was able to assemble myself in about an hour and everything lined up perfectly. It runs relatively quiet. The display shows all parameters (distance, time, calories, speed, etc) all at the same time. My old treadmill had one numeric display that would cycle these parameters. The lap display was also a very nice added feature. The integrated fans do not blow very hard, but provide a nice breeze. This treadmill has built-in speakers. While they won't please audiophiles, they are more than adequate for working out. The deck folds up smoothly with almost no effort.

The only negative point about this treadmill is that the speed does not change very fast. This is most annoying when slowing down. It took about 45 seconds to slow from 6 mph to 2 mph. Perhaps this is a safety feature, I would have liked it to be a bit more responsive. It does speed up much faster than that, however.

The treadmill was delivered in two days. The delivery folks were going to leave it in the garage because that is all they are responsible for. However, my wife slipped them a little cash and they carried it to the basement. Like I mentioned, the unit was very easy to assemble by a single person.

Excellent display. Ease of assembly. Solidly built. Quiet. Speakers.

Speed adjustment a little sluggish.

Great Treadmill, March 11, 2012
By DeBate
After much research on trying to find the perfect treadmill for myself this seemed to be the perfect fit. I didn't have a very high budget, and this seemed to have all the perks plus that I was looking for. I have had this treadmill for over a month and love it! I am very happy with the purchase. Delivery was fast and easy. Assembly was easy and not time confusing at all. I have had no problems. very stable and works perfect for my everyday use. I would say for people who are looking for something to run on this may not be the perfect fit. it works wonderful for a fast paced walk. very quiet motor and belt. all and all I am so pleased with this treadmill!

Nice and quiet...yesss! But watch the console assembly,
February 7, 2012
By Seychellois
Very nice machine, wow have they made progress over the last ten years. I bought my last mill at Sears in 2002 and this unit was $200 cheaper, quieter and has speakers and a fan. This represents the Moore's law of treadmills!!

I had it shipped free courtesy of prime. That worked well, no damage at all but the delivery persons definitely did not hit the schedule. They were way early which was a hassle since I had to leave work and be at the house when they showed up. It worked fine for me because I am a short commute from work but it would be a bummer for someone who was 45 minutes from home.

Others have dissed the fan. They were right, its about as strong as a laptop fan so if you are an integrated chip you will be happy. If you are a human being this thing will not cool you off. A little gimmicky if you ask me. The speakers are cool though. I can set my Android up on Pandora and listen to the radio via the speakers, they are not JBLs but they work fine. The machine is so quiet you don't need much volume.

Display has all the stuff I need. Frankly these treadmills are beginning to look like the 80s Japanese stereo systems with a million blinking lights and goofy functionality that no one but NASA could possibly use. NASA wouldn't even use them because they don't launch treadmills into outer space. But I digress. This treadmill is simple with well thought out display and functionality.

So as anyone who is anyone in the treadmill world will tell you, what you hear about the mill during the first week of ownership is pretty useless. Its a year or two later after you have sweated all over the thing, walked the equivalent of LA to SF and have spilled three or four red bulls on the deck that the men are separated from the boys. We'll just have to see on the reliability font but my first impression is a very good one.

With regard to assembly. It was pretty easy with one important caveat which was mentioned by other reviewers and which I ignored because I am an incorrigible idiot. When you install the control panel do not, repeat, do not, tighten any of the screws until you have all four screws started. Otherwise you will scandalize the neighborhood (think Ralphie loosing the lug nuts in " A Christmas Story")and then you will sit back sweaty and pissed off and think "gee wiz some of the reviewers on Amazon said not to tighten these screws until they were all started" and then you will try it the "Amazon way" and you will feel,as I did, like an incorrigible idiot.

one week update: I continue to be extremely happy with this unit. Quiet and capable of hauling my (curently) 218 lb body. I walk so can't comment on running. I will say at 3.2 MPH and at all inclines it remains quiet, sturdy and very comfortable.

Couple of nit noys:
The user manual is useless. Must have been written by someone who never uses a treadmill. Prepare to figure out a bunch of things for yourself.
The thing beeps multiple times when you turn it on, when you turn it off, when you increase or decrease speed, when you look at it funny, etc. Enough with the beeping, totally ruins the chi of an otherwise very quiet mill.
As other reviewers have noted, you can not enter your weight so the calorie counter is effectively useless unless you are some nominal weight which, of course, they do not identify. If you knew that weight you could calculate an adjustment table. This is a pretty silly oversight IMO.

Otherwise it is a great mill and I have seen nothing which would change my mind about my purchase.

Nice home treadmill, June 25, 2012
By speedyPete07
Im pretty pleased with the sole f-80. This was my first home treadmill so i was very nervous about the purchase. I do most of my training outdoors but during the winter and extreme heat of the summer its very nice to have. I run on average around 3-4 miles @8-9MPH. Im 6' 190 and the machine holds up very well. It feels solid and doesnt have any cheap feel about it. Ive had it for about 6 months so far and if it holds up i will be very pleased with the investment. ****NOTE***** if you plug this into an outlet on a ARC Fault detection breaker you will likely trip the breaker on a regular basis. It happens with me almost every time but my fiance (5'2 110lbs) does not have any problems. I just run an extension cord to a different outlet when i use it. Bottom line: If your in the market for a solid treadmill to "run" on and dont want to spend the cash for a commercial treadmill this one should fit the bill.

Good treadmill, May 8, 2012
By Active Media
Bought this treadmill two weeks ago after reading the reviews and wife wife and I love it. It has the basic features you need to kick start your exercise program. This treadmill is very heavy but assembly was easy about 1/2 hr). Once it is assembled, you just hop on and start.There is a safety latch in case you slip and good pre set programs. We feel very comfortable on this. The buttons on the front panel are very intuitive and straight forward. Delivery was on time and item was in good working condition.

great for running, but several non-running issues prevent from being much better December 15, 2010
I am a regular amazon customer and frequently buy here but somehow for this purchase, I decided to buy from Sole directly. The delivery was not fast, took 10 days but the box was in great shape and the delivery service was good (I paid for the delivery to any room, which I highly recommend if you have to negotiate stairs with this 300 pound box).

The running surface is excellent, my wife is the main user and she has put more than 5 miles a day on this machine at more than 7 miles an hour for 45 days so this thing is getting some great use. The running surface is cushioned well as advertised. The fact that the buttons are set for predefined (4, 6, 8, 10 miles/hr) does not bother me so much but the time it takes to speed up or slow down to the predefined speed is noticeable.

Some of the accessories are funny in my mind. I think adding the fan is kind of unnecessary since it adds little to no benefit. I also think the speakers are of course not excellent quality. I have found the "music pass through" (plug my iphone to the treadmill and then speakers to the headphone jack) to be very useful as I can now control the music while running. The cup holder is in a very awkward position (lower shelf below console), don't imagine you could actually use this while running.

I have used the heart rate belt with great results and find it very useful but the handlebar heart-rate monitor has not worked for me. I considered calling Sole about this but honestly, you can't run or even walk comfortably, holding them.

In regards to putting it together, it was not difficult except I had some difficulty getting the plastic covers over the siderails-console) to line up well. I only needed help with moving the running surface out of the box (heavy) and then some help holding the console in place (light) while screwing pieces together. I put it together in less than an hour. I really like the folding mechanism. My 100 pound wife could comfortably raise and lower this with no danger (the lowering is vacuum assisted to prevent it from falling on someone).

running surface 4-5 stars (quiet and soft)
controls: 3 stars (awkward set up with some of the settings and time to speed up/down)
accessories: 2 stars (poor location and or poor function)

performs better than expected May 6, 2011
By pookieswife
VERY pleased with the Proform 705 CST treadmill - 75 miles in the 3 weeks I've owned it. Speakers are much better than expected so I can really blast the music and enjoy a nice jog! Only disappoint was delivery - not only did they run over my sidewalk and destroy several pieces of bluestone (never returned my calls - it was $500.00 to repair), but a few pieces of the treadmill were cracked so obviously they dropped it at some point. Fortunately it didn't impact the performance of the treadmill. Highly recommend it, but get a floor mat - especially if you have hard wood floors. It is impossible to put together with 1 person, but relatively easy with 2 people - just carefully read the instructions and follow the correct order to assemble. (Sounds obvious, but an overzealous husband who "knows what he's doing" had to start over a few times.)

satisfied June 13, 2011
By J. Cheung
I've have been running on the Proform 705 CST treadmill almost every day for the past two weeks since I got it and have, so far, been satisfied with it. It is smooth and stable while providing ample cushioning for my 5'8, 153lb frame. Its console's quick speed and incline buttons are very handy, and its display easy to read. I have yet to try any of its programmed workouts or Ifit, but its 12 mph max speed and 12% max incline are sufficient for my fitness purposes. Some of its caveats include its lack of pace in the customary min/mile, its broken heart rate monitor, and its wildly inaccurate calorie counter. In addition, its speakers sound terrible. However, these are only minor issues that haven't affected my workouts. I haven't tried any of the other treadmills in this price range, but I would recommend this one to any recreational/fitness runner on a budget.

Customer Review

Very good treadmill, but the F80 is worth the few hundred more. January 16, 2011
By Lisa in CT
This is a pretty good treadmill. I bought it based on Sole's reputation & warranty. I did a lot of research before buying, but at the last minute couldn't bring myself to spend the [...] on the f80, so I went w/ the f63 on sale at Dicks for [...]. I figured since the f80 was more often recommended for die-hard runners and the f63 was reviewed as more than good enough for walkers & joggers, I'd save the difference.
I now regret my change in model. The f80 was much quieter. I have to have the tv volume up pretty high while using this one. The 80 was almost silent in comparison. The belt on the 80 was twice as thick. The deck cushion was better on the 80, it seemed to absorb your strides better, of course that's what [...] more buys (plus additional warranty time). The speed & incline on both are comparable. It does take a bit for the speed to catch up to the setting, but that's not really a big deal. One thing about either model is that Sole has this incredibly stupid design of a curved front cover over the front of the belt. Most other brands have a straight cover across, further up, away from where your feet land. Running is ok, but when you're walking, be careful not to step on this cover as to step forward. I think while running you are a bit farther back on the belt. It is an extremely bad design and is an accident waiting to happen - thank goodness the side handles are there to catch yourself. Others have mentioned this design flaw on other models too.
Anyway, if you can afford the f80, I recommend that model instead. If not, this is probably the top of the line treadmill you'll get for around [...].
Which ever one you buy, unless you have a couple of very strong friends to help you, go for the delivery and have them at least put it in the room you'll be using it in. Paying for set-up isn't really necessary, I got it set up in an hour or so, but this is VERY heavy and you'll need help!!

Love this treadmill! December 14, 2010
By tp
Prior to purchasing this treadmill, I did a lot of research online and tried out various treadmills at multiple stores. I just received this treadmill yesterday and so far I am loving it. It was delivered by ABF freight and everyone I talked to at ABF (including the delivery driver) was very helpful and friendly. My husband and one of his friends carried the treadmill down to our basement. My husband put it together in less than an hour. The treadmill is very quiet and easy to program. I love having the ability to create my own programs. I have found with other treadmills the speeds of programs vary too much (starting at 2 miles per hour which is way too slow). I also like the fan and being able to plug in my ipod. Only complaint... there really isn't a book holder on the treadmill. I usually like to read magazines while on the treadmill and I don't think it would stay in place very well. Overall this is an excellent treadmill and I am very happy with my purchase.
