Firstly, the V Fit PT12/4 Athlete treadmill is an impressive home fitness machine. It reaches a top speed of 18km/hr, which is in excess of most other treadmills on the market aimed at home use. This high speed is powered by a hugely powerful 2.0hp motor, which also ramps up to a peak incline of 15%. At these speed and incline levels, basically any level of runner (or walker) can get a great workout that exactly meets their needs.
The running desk is a large 1.3m long and 0.46m wide, and features joint saving shock-absorbing, flexi-deck and silicon impregnated technology. Speed and incline are controlled via the main central control unit, which features a back-lit LCD display that shows calories burnt, speed, distance travelled, % body fat, heart rate, incline level, and workout time. You can either go fully manual and increase speed and incline as you workout, or you can use one of the fantastic 11 pre-set workout programmes that come installed in the treadmill.
As well as being powered by a large 2.0 hp motor, this V Fit treadmill is fully foldable with special soft-drop technology, meaning it can be folded and unfolded with ease. The running deck folds up vertically and reduces the footprint of this treadmill considerable and makes for much more convenient storage.
