This HealthRider H95t Treadmill scores a 70 (out of 100) rating. This HealthRider H95t review explains the features and benefits in detail as well.
The HealthRider H95t Treadmill’s nicest feature is the fact it’s outfitted with iFit Live Technology. Otherwise, it’s specifications and features are pretty standard for a treadmill priced in the $1,000 range. One disappointment is the motor is only 2.75 horsepower, which for the price is on the low side. Otherwise, this treadmill has a nice wide console angled relatively flat making for easy reading. In fact, the console and graphics are another very nice feature.
|Motor Power||2.75 horsepower (using a CHP Endura Commercial Plus Motor). Not optimal – 3.0 is preferred, especially for treadmills priced close to a $1,000 (prices vary – depending on sales and discounts). At Treadmill Reviews HQ, we place a decent amount of weight on motor power to derive our rating score (set out above).|
|Running Deck Size||
|Speed Range||0 – 12 miles per hour with One-Touch Speed. Decent top speed and the one-touch speed feature – which lets you adjust speed with increase/decrease speed buttons within easy reach is nice additional feature. What’s so beneficial about One-Touch Speed? When you’re in the middle of a workout and you wish to adjust speed, it’s no fun having to push a series of buttons to do so. One-Touch Speed lets you directly press either an increase or decrease speed buttons so you adjust your speed quickly with minimal interruption to your workout.|
|Cushioning System||The HealthRider H95t Treadmill gives you up to 15% impact reduction compared to running on pavement using SoftTrack Cushioning. There is no doubt that treadmills with a built-in cushioning system is one more reason to get a treadmill to complement your outdoor running. If you run often or have any kind of joint issue, the SoftTrack cushioning will reduce the impact to your joints compared to running on pavement.|
|Max. Weight Capacity||325 – almost impressive. It’s good though and helps the score on this treadmill. Why would we care about maximum weight capacity? Because in our view, it’s indicative of the durability and strength of a frame. If a frame breaks-down, a treadmill is useless. The frame is vitally important to a treadmill. That said, the HealthRider H95t comes with a lifetime warranty on its frame – which is in fact impressive.|
|Heart Rate Monitor||
However, HealthRider offers for sale SEPARATELY the AccuRate Wireless Heart Rate monitor. This is a wireless chest strap heart rate monitor that integrates with most of HealthRider’s treadmills.
|Workout Programs||In addition to the iFit Live technology, the HealthRider H95t Treadmill comes with numerous built-in workout programs which are as follows:
Having this type of workout variety is a nice feature because your workout regimen and goals will likely change over time. For example, you may get a treadmill to lose weight, but as you improve your performance and lose weight, you may start preferring performance and distance-based workouts. Instead of having to configure your own workouts, the HealthRider H95t Treadmill does it for you.
Competition Training Center – you can compete with virtual competitors. If you’re a racer or like competition for motivation, then you’ll like this feature where you can enter a race any time you like.
|Audio / Sound System||With built-in speakers and an MP3 (including iPod) docking station, you can play all the music you want while working out without having to wear headphones.|
|Console||Nice and wide console featuring:
|Financing Available||Yes, you can opt for a payment plan if you qualify.|
