Keeping the times in mind, I would like to review a treadmill, which comes in the sub USD 2000 price bracket but offers as much bang as a top end treadmill. The Sole S77 Treadmill (2008 Model) is one of the few that makes the cut in the price range. The Sole S77 Treadmill has a powerful yet quiet motor, a great deck size, supports heavy weights and has a lot of the standard features of treadmills in the higher price bracket. The Sole S77 Treadmill’s size makes it a gym treadmill or one for large homes with a dedicated area for workouts. Let’s go through the specifications for the Sole S77 Treadmill.

I have not come across even a few dissatisfied owners of the Sole S77 Treadmill. It also measures as a club gym treadmill. Here’s what I like about the Sole S77 Treadmill:
- The very quiet motor that enables you to use plugged-in media effectively or watch TV or page through a magazine.
- The automatic adjustments in it’s Heart Training Zone mode – the machine re-adjusts it’s speed and incline so that you stay in the target HR range.
- Peak value graphs that are displayed for individual programs and profiles in it’s ¼ .
- Great cushion Flex deck makes for comfortable foot impact and is easy on joints.
- The big running deck
- The MP3 dock in the console and plug-ins, 2 cooling fans and a cool warranty of lifetime on the motor, deck, and frame; five years on the electronics, belt, and rollers; and two years on the labor.
The Sole S77 Treadmill comes at a good price, great design, material and warranty – all that goes into sealing a deal. It is actually the non-folding version of the Sole F85 treadmill, which also like the Sole S77 Treadmill is very successful with it’s users and has the lowest negative customer reviews for it in consumer surveys.
MY RATING FOR THE SOLE S77 TREADMILL (2008 MODEL) = 4.75 our of 5 stars
