The Smooth A35T is a great choice for beginners, intermediates and even avid runners. It’s powerful, sturdy and offers a host of built in workout programs as well as iFit technology, which opens up the door to even more workout capability. There’s nothing like choosing where a remote location and simulating that run while watching it all unfold in front of you.
Having both incline and decline capability is great, as is the cushion technology and ample deck space. Another cool feature that you don’t find on many treadmills is SafeZone technology which sends you an alert and automatically shuts down the treadmill if your kids or pets approach. This is very cool as I have both in my home. 🙂
If you’re looking for a great mid-range machine under $1,500 the Smooth A35T treadmill is definitely a very good choice.
