The Healthrider H95t
OHIYO! Welcome back my friends. The treadmill for today is the Healthrider H95t. For some time now, it’s caught my eye, but I never got around to writing about it until now. It’s right in the middle of the T series. Healthrider only offers 4 treadmills right now, but this one seems to be the winner of the 4 in my opinion. There is a lot of cool stuff packed into it. Usually I’m not a big fan of manufacturing companies throwing in loads of extra features to grab attention. Usually because they tend to compromise on the the more fundamental parts in order to add the bells and whistles. The reason I wanted to write about this treadmill is because they didn’t do that.
Initially when I saw this treadmill, and noticed all the features I thought “oh great, another feature loaded treadmill with a tinfoil engine.” But when I tried it out and checked out the insides, I realized that the extra features really are extra features, not just a trade for quality. Wow. They didn’t compromise on the basics, to give you the additions.
I’ll write a little about each of the features. They aren’t extraordinary or anything. They’re just the common features that people actually use to make a treadmill running a more enjoyable experience. It’s got a bunch of different kinds of weight loss, distance, and performance workouts, as well as a competition training center. I recommend using these. I used to just set a time limit for myself and run until the time ran out. But I found that using these preprogrammed workouts really does get me to push myself harder, and makes things more interesting. So I do like a nice variety of these.
I also love the Ipod hookup with the speakers. It’s great to listen to whatever I want without having to use a separate sterio system. This is on a lot of the new treadmills, which is great. The cushioning is fairly comfortable, the display is a nice touch screen, and the heart rate monitor actually works. If you use Ifit live, it’s got that for you too.
The fundamentals are well above average for this price range. It’s got:
- 2.75 CHP Motor
- 325 lbs weight limit
- 0-12% Incline, one-touch
- 0 – 12 MPH, one-touch
- 20″ x 60″ Treadbelt
- Lifetime Frame and Motor Warranty, and 1-Year Parts & Labor
If the features are good, and the quality is good, and the price is in the sub $1000s, then I say go for it. If you pit this treadmill up to many of the others in this price class, it will loom over them in almost every aspect. Obviously this doesn’t have the functionality and quality of treadmills in higher-end price ranges, but where it’s at it’s a great deal for a fun treadmill, that won’t break down on you as soon as you start to give it a beating.
Check it out. Hope this was helpful to you.
