Sole F80 Treadmill Review

Our Sole F80 Treadmill Review shows that it is packed with features you would expect to find on a  much higher end treadmill. The powerful 3.5 horsepower main drive motor delivers both speed and smooth comfortable belt movement.

The large display screen  on the control console makes it easy to see all that it has to offer. The heavy duty construction and oversized footprint makes it rather heavy, but it means that it handle more weight.

The F80 is part of the Sole Fitness line of home gym treadmills that offers commercial quality features. The key to cardio workouts is reaching your target heart rate and maintaining throughout an entire workout. The Sole F80 makes that possible, using the large 7.5 inch LCD display and the handle mounted heart rate monitors you will be able track your heart in real time.

The high strength tubular steel frame and running deck give is at the heart of the Sole F80 Treadmill. Along with their proprietary Cushion Flex Whisper deck suspension system, you will get a gym quality workout without the worry of injury to knees or ankles.

The six pre-programmed standard workouts and the two specifically designed for heart training makes it one of the best treadmills in its class. Then add to the mix two customizable workout programs. I did find one place that still offers tax free shipping on this treadmill which is a pretty big savings off of the total price.
