The Boston Marathon Treadmill
Running in the Boston Marathon is the goal for many marathon runners. In order to run in this marathon, another marathon must be run within the qualifying times no more than 18 months prior to the Boston race. To “Boston Qualify” is a feat is difficult to achieve for the average runner. The marathon takes place annually on the 3rd Monday in April. Approximately 20,000 people run the race each year, with over 500,000 spectators cheering them on. So if you are planning to run the Boston Marathon at some point, ProForm has just released the perfect piece of equipment for you – the Boston Marathon Treadmill!
Let’s just say this machine is loaded! It will give the ultimate training regimen for those preparing for this amazing marathon. Short of flying to Boston and running the course in person, you won’t find a better way to replicate and train for this race.
Boston Marathon Treadmill features include:
The 10″ Full-Color Touch Screen allows you to watch your Boston HD Video Workouts, including footage that was shot on location during the race in 2012. During these workouts the incline automatically adjusts between -6% and 10% inclines to match the terrain of the actual race course. The touchscreen also connects to your wireless internet connection, allowing you to surf the web or watch online movies while you run.
New wireless technology included with this machine is the SpeedRing. This cool little gadget slips on your finger and allows you to adjust the speed of your workout in 1/10 mph increments just the quick touch of a button. A wireless heart monitor is also included for hands-free heart rate tracking.
Not only will this treadmill help you to prepare for the Boston Marathon, but it will help you to prepare for any marathon, which can be a lifesaver if you are still trying to Boston Qualify. There are 2 marathon training programs built in, one 16 week, and one 20 week. These training programs get progressively harder so that you are totally prepared when your race day arrives.
And of course this treadmill isn’t without impressive specs! The 4.25 CHP Motor can support users up to 400 lbs, and can reach speeds of 15 MPH. In fact, this is the first treadmill to offer a 15 MPH speed that can run while plugged into a standard 15 amp home electric circuit! The 20″ W x 62″ L tread belt is large enough to accomodate any stride, and sensors that can help you to improve your running efficiency, cadence, and stride rate will help you get the most out of every workout!
To top everything off, this treadmill comes with an amazing warranty. The frame and motor are covered for life, the electronics and parts are covered for 6 years, and labor is covered for 3 years. This warranty is far better than most treadmills on the market, across all brands.
Although this treadmill currently has a hefty price tag, there isn’t another treadmill on the market like it. For those who are very serious about marathon running, and especially having a good race at the Boston Marathon, this treadmill will definitely be worth it.
