Named a "best buy" from a leading consumer magazine two years in a row, the entry-level Sole F63 treadmill is loaded with features typically found in more expensive machines. All Sole treadmills are outfitted with powder-coated, all-steel welded frames and heavy-duty, stable inclines. The F63 also includes an ultra-reliable 2.5-horsepower continuous-duty motor and all-steel zinc-coated balanced flywheel, creating a secure, quiet, vibration-free running/walking surface. The flywheel is much heavier than most other brands, giving runners the fluid motion they're accustomed to at the gym. To accommodate runners with balky joints, Sole added a low-impact, 1-inch phenolic deck. The deck's shock-absorbing design greatly reduces the impact to your feet, ankles, knees, hips, and spine, making it comfortable for frequent runners or for users with running- and walking-related injuries.
The F63's console includes a vibrant 6.5-inch LCD display and an integrated sound system.
The F63 makes it easy to track your workout progress via the vibrant 6.5-inch LCD display, which includes windows for speed, incline, time, distance traveled, calories, pulse, and pace. The console also sports a 1/4-mile track and a peak-and-valley graph for different programs, along with an integrated sound system for listening to your iPod or MP3 player (the system includes built-in speakers and a sound cord that plugs into your player's headphone jack). Perhaps the handiest feature is the integrated message window, which offers scrolling messages that walk you through the treadmill's features or the workout itself. The message window will also recap your entire routine after you're finished, so you can see your progress from workout to workout.
The F63 comes complete with six automatic programs--including cardio training and fat burning options--and two customizable programs, so you can challenge yourself with multiple routines. Or you can opt to control the speed and incline manually. The speed range is adjustable from 1 to 10 miles per hour and the incline varies between 0 and 15 percent.
And to reduce space, the F63 boasts an Easy Assist folding deck design. This unique feature allows you to release the deck, step back, and watch the deck unfold itself. When you're done with your workout, simply fold it back up and store it out of the way. Other features include a 20-by-55-inch running deck, a large stop switch, cooling fans, armrest speed and incline controls, and a low-profile running hood that doesn't get in the way of your running gait.
