Essentially meaning that you get more for your money! So, want to learn how you can get fit? Let’s read on to find out how the ProForm 205 CST treadmill can help us reach our fitness goals.
Built to last a lifetime
ProForm are known globally for building sturdy machines that are designed to last a lifetime, and the 205 CST treadmill is no different.
The metal framing encases a 1.75 CHP drive, for sprinters this might not sound strong enough but it certainly is plenty for joggers and runners alike. If you are looking for something with more ‘umph’ then look towards the NordicTrack Commercial 2950 Treadmill which has a 4.25CHP motor.
Running, jogging, walking
Measuring in at 41 x 127cm the running belt is an average size and features Adjustable ProShox Cushioning. This unique cushioning belt absorbs the impact on the joints making it ideal for those of you with joint pain or mobility concerns.
If you are over 6ft or have a particularly long stride then you might need a bigger than average running space. If that sounds like you then check out the spacious 51 x 152 cm deck on the ProForm Power 995i Treadmill.
Running on a flat surface is great but to really tone up and get fitter quicker, you should try running on an incline.
Ta-da! Workout to the max with incline ability
The 205 CST treadmill has an option to incline the deck from 0 to 10%. Having an incline ability is a must-have feature for serious trainers who are looking to work with all of their core muscle groups.
The incline can be altered at any time, giving you the power to change the challenge level of your workout.
If the incline ability is something that you would like to explore then be sure to also check out the NordicTrack X22i which has an impressive +40% incline and -6% decline tilt.
Sounds like running straight up a mountain to us.But, to be honest, that is exactly the point!
Not only does an incline feature target different muscles it also naturally changes the challenge level of your workouts.
It is a simple formula: a steeper incline means you work harder and become fitter, quicker.
We love a simple science formula like that one!
On the 205 CST toggling between incline points during programmes couldn't be easier thanks to the quick access console buttons and ultra-smooth transition.
So, how many programmes are there?
We all want to know how many unique pre-programmed workouts there are.
Well, the 205 CST doesn’t disappoint, with a well rounded 16 programmes to motivate and inspire you.
Remember that during any pre-programmed session you can increase not only the speed level but the incline ability to make your workout harder (or easier for that matter!).
The programmes all encompass different elements of training from stamina to speed and fat burn.
If you are prone to boredom then you might be interested in an iFit subscription which will give you access to new workshops daily. You can also challenge your friends to fitness tournaments, read community blogs and receive delicious nutritional recipes.
Working out just got a whole lot more fun!
