SOLE Treadmill Glossary of Terms
SOLE TT8 Vs. SOLE TT9 = Both of these treadmills are commercial quality heavy duty non-folding treadmills. The SOLE TT9 has a heavier duty 4-Ply commercial belt, heavier 450 lb. user limit, and adds a 10-inch touchscreen. Both treadmills are ideal for runners.

SOLE F80 Vs. SOLE F85 = Both of these treadmills are home folding treadmills. The F85 has a slightly larger LCD screen, has a stronger 4.0 HP motor, can handle heavier users (400 lbs.), adds 2-inches in deck width, and adds 1 mph in speed.

SOLE TT8 Vs. SOLE F85 = Both of these heavy duty treadmills have almost identical specs, such as 400 lb. weight limit, 4 HP motors. The TT8 however is a light commercial version with a thicker 4 ply treadmill belt, and has larger 3-inch rollers. The TT8 is heavier and does not fold up for added stability. The TT8 also adds 6 levels of decline, while the F85 only has incline. The F85 folds up.

Folding Treadmill = There are two type of treadmills. Folding and Fixed. A folding treadmill can be folded up and rolled away to another spot for easy storage, best for those without space to dedicate for a treadmill. Then there are fixed treadmills, which once assembled usually stay in the same spot and do not fold up.

Motor Horsepower (HP) = Horsepower or HP is a measure of power. All else being equal, a more powerful motor is better as it will strain less under heavy load (and last longer). The heavier you are, the more horsepower you should get. Higher horsepower treadmills will cost more money. Overworked, under-powered straining motors are more prone to fail. All of SOLE treadmills have at least a 3hp motor which is powerful.

Maximum User Weight = Each treadmill depending on its construction and horsepower of its motor has a maximum user weight limit. So if the limit is 300 lbs, and you are over 300 lbs., you should not buy this treadmill but look for one with a higher weight limit. If you weigh substantially less than the weight limit, this will put a lot less strain on the treadmill motor. Sole Heavy Duty Treadmills go up to a 400 lb. weight limit.

Built-in Bluetooth = Sole has added Bluetooth, which can send your treadmill data to a Sole App on your smart phone or tablet.

Miles per Hour = This signifies the highest speed the treadmill will go when you are running.

Incline Grade = This signifies the number of incline grades that this treadmill is capable of. Incline grades simulate walking or running up a hill.

Decline Grade = This feature simulates running downhill and works out different muscles for a total workout. This feature is rare in treadmills, and Sole only has one model with 6 levels of decline, the Sole TT8 Running Treadmill.

Heart Monitor = Most treadmills have a heart monitor (grip or clip on type) which allows you to monitor your heart rate to meet heart rate goals for cardiovascular fitness. All of SOLE treadmills have heart monitors.

Heart Rate Programs = This allows you to set a heart-rate goal, and the treadmill will automatically adjust the incline to keep you in your target zone.

Running Area = This is the running area or running deck area of the tread of the treadmill. Taller persons with longer strides may want a bigger running area. Most SOLE treadmills have a 60-inch running deck, which is excellent for running.

Workout Programs = Almost all treadmills have a small computer and display where you can run multiple workout programs that vary the resistance and incline of the treadmill to simulate real walking or running. Examples are programs for the heart, or calorie burn.

LED/LCD Display = The treadmill will have a display to give you information (such as time, calorie burn, distance). They can be either LED lit, or use a backlit LCD screen. All of SOLE treadmills have a backlit LCD screen, in various sizes (larger for more expensive models).

Built-in Fan = Some treadmills have a built-in fan to cool you off during your workout. All SOLE treadmills have built-in cooling fans.
