Most Peoples' New Year's resolutions involve something related to fitness and health that are rewarding goals but difficult to meet, especially during the winter months when outdoor activities are less fun. If you are one of the disciplined few who have not abandoned these intentions, good in-home training equipment like the NordicTrack C500 treadmill can make a big difference. Now you canwhile purchasing a new C500.
Although old-fashioned outdoor running is as popular a motor activity as it has been to date, a stationary treadmill offers some key benefits: First, you can comfortably exercise in comfort (and warmth) from home, which means your exercise plan will not take the daylight hours or hours subject to the weather. Many people simply prefer the quiet and privacy of their home to work out instead of doing so in a public gym.
Second, treadmills have less impact on the joints than on concrete or asphalt, which is likely to be where you walk when you live in an urban area, an activity that is notoriously hard on knees, hips, and ankles. Third, modern treadmills such as the NordicTrack C500 have a wealth of high-tech features and settings that allow you to personalize and customize your workout.
The NordicTrack C500 features a six-inch multicolor LCD monitor displaying your current progress and other fitness metrics, while two stereo speakers let you connect your music and your jam while running. NordicTrack's FlexSelect cushioning protects your joints from the effects of running, and the EasyLift flap allows you to easily fold the deck when the treadmill is not in use.
The remarkable feature of the NordicTrack C500, however, is its compatibility with the iFit software, which allows personalized daily fitness goals as well as professional coaching. You can choose preprogrammed workouts designed by professional athletes or attend a virtual studio session with iFit certified coaches. With the C500's built-in software, you can also go through a series of virtual targets on Earth and automatically adjust the treadmill's incline to the real terrain of those locations.
Therings at $ 599 on a free home delivery from Walmart. This is a good price for a stationary treadmill with such features (and still a fraction of what a peloton treadmill would cost you). For a limited time, however, you can purchase a subscription to iFit's professional coaching software for one year – worth $ 468 – for free with your order.
