The CT825 is stout and extremely durable, weighing in at over 350 lbs. The combination of the heavy-duty steel frame and aluminum console masts and side rails make it comparable to treadmills at much higher price points in the commercial market. The large 22” x 60” workout area makes this model very appealing to walkers and runners alike. Features dual-drive motor cooling fans to protect and extend the life of the motor and control board. Maintenance free, hard wax deck system provides hassle free use for thousands of miles.
As with any product, a major importance is the user interface. We focused on making everything easily accessible and comfortable: a storage tray for phone, keys or an MP3 player, ergonomically friendly pulse grip handles for a more natural hand position, and a turbo cooling fan to keep your clients cool and encourage them to work out longer. Our large, easy-to-read console gives your clients constant feedback from calories to distance to time. The large selection of preset programs provides users with an array of workout options perfect for the beginner to the more seasoned athlete.
HILL This program follows a triangle or pyramid type of gradual progression from approximately 10% of maximum effort (the level that you chose before starting this program) up to a maximum effort which lasts for 10% of the total workout time, then a gradual regression of speed back to approximately 10% of maximum effort.
FAT BURN This program follows a quick progression up to the maximum speed level (default or user input level) that is sustained for 2/3 of the workout. This program will challenge your ability to sustain your energy output for an extended period of time.
CARDIO This program presents a quick progression up to near maximum speed level (default or user input level). It has slight fluctuations up and down to allow your heart rate to elevate, and then recover repeatedly, before beginning a quick cool down. This will build up your heart muscle and increase blood flow and lung capacity.
5K RUN The lap track will be set to a 5K distance. This same distance will be displayed on the console and count down until it reaches 0. You control the speed and incline throughout the program.
INTERVAL This program takes you through high levels of intensity followed by recovery periods of low intensity. This program utilizes and develops your “Fast Twitch” muscle fibers which are used when performing tasks that are intense and short in duration. These deplete your oxygen level and spike your heart rate, followed by periods of recovery and heart rate drop to replenish oxygen. Your cardiovascular system gets programmed to use oxygen more efficiently.
CUSTOM An individual can store personal information and design a custom program that can be saved for future use. You decide what the speed and incline will be for each segment of the program.
FIT TEST (GERKIN PROTOCOL) The fitness test is based on the Gerkin protocol, also known as the fireman’s protocol. This is a sub-maximal VO2 (volume of oxygen) test. The program will gradually increase speed and incline until the time expires or you reach 85% of projected heart rate maximum (calculated when entering age in the programming portion). Based on where the test finishes, your score will be calculated and can be compared to others in your age group to determine your level of cardiovascular health.
MANUAL The Manual program works as the name implies, manually. This means that you control the workload and not the computer.
HEART RATE (2x) Both programs work the same. The programs attempt to keep you within 3-5 heart beats of your target heart rate % by automatically increasing or decreasing the speed level. Heart Rate 1 has a 60% (better for a fat loss goal) of projected heart rate maximum default. Heart Rate 2 has an 80% (better for a cardiovascular conditioning goal) of projected heart rate maximum default.
