Treadmills are extremely popular fitness devices, especially among those users who want to loose some weight by running, but simply don't have where to do so (mostly because they're living in a busy urban area with no parks in their immediate vicinity). And that's exactly the type of device we'll talk about as follows, namely the iLog 750 Treadmill from Pro-Form, which offers users all sorts of advanced training options.
First and foremost, it's important to mention that the iLog has been equipped with a 20 x 55 inches treadbelt, powered by a Mach Z 3.5 CHP motor and providing an adjustable incline level (between 0 and 12 percent). The treadbelt features ProTech 3 adjustable cushioning technology, which reduces impact on the joints from 26% to 33%, as compared to road running, and allows users to easily adjust its speed, from 0 to 10 miles per hour (16 km/h).
Furthermore, much in the same way as other high-end machines from Pro-Form, this treadmill also doubles as some sort of “electronic personal trainer”, since it comes pre-loaded with 10 workout programs. Each workout features iFit training technology and customizable workout settings, including max speed, min speed and workout duration.
Since it's iFit-enabled, the iLog 750 Treadmill also supports iFIT Fitness Journal, an easy-to-use tracking feature that generates daily, weekly, monthly and yearly workout totals for up to 2 individual users.
Beside the iFit technology, the device also provides a feature called “Create and Save”, which allows users to define up to 4 preferred workouts (other than those already pre-loaded in the machine) and then save them for future use.
All the information mentioned above can be viewed/controlled via the built-in Grafixx display. Furthermore, users can also listen to their favorite songs while running on this treadmill, since it is equipped with the Interplay Universal iPod Dock, which connects an iPod directly to the treadmill's console via a special cable and plays the music stored within via the device's 2 speakers.
Given just how many features this treadmill can provide, it's no surprise that it comes at a pretty hefty price tag, of around 1,900 US dollars, which means that it will most likely prove to be popular with gym owners rather than home users.
