The Nautilus Sport Series T5.16 LEX Treadmill has everything going for it including the price and features. As usual, purchase decisions should primarily be made on Belt Usage Area (for stride comfort of all user heights), cushioning (to reduce stress injury incidences), Workout programs available (for versatile users), deck (convenience from design) and drive motor (power) – the Nautilus Sport Series T5.16 LEX Treadmill wins on all these counts in this price range.
However, if you have a look at it, the Nautilus Sport Series T5.16 LEX Treadmill is a large machine. It may not be suitable for small to medium sized apartments unless a precious room space is dedicated to the treadmill. If space (or the price) is comfortable, I would highly recommend the Nautilus Sport Series T5.16 LEX Treadmill.
MY RATING OF THE NAUTILUS SPORT SERIES T5.16 LEX TREADMILL – 4.5 out of 5 stars
