XTERRA is a treadmill brand that is manufactured by Spirit Fitness, a well known commercial and home fitness company known for their reliability and quality. Specifically built for the home consumer line, the Trail Runner 6.8 is the top of the line treadmill offered by XTERRA and is packed with features and an excellent warranty.
Large Deck Design and Strong Motor
With the deck size of 20" x 60" and a 3.5 CHP (continuous horse power) motor, the XTERRA Trail Racer 6.8 is a treadmill engineered for not only the casual user, but for dedicated runners as well.
Heart Rate Hand Grips
Tracking your heart rate during a workout is highly recommended. The XTERRA Trail Racer 6.8 not only allows you to keep accurate track of your heart rate with digital hand grips, but also comes with a wireless heart rate chest strap for easier fitness programming integration.
Large Range of Speed and Incline
The TR 6.8 features speeds ranging up to 12MPH and an adjustable incline of 0 to 15%. This makes it possible to train for hill climbs or just boost your workout to the next level at the flip of a button built into the hand grips.
Large LCD Display
With a large 7.5" widescreen LCD screen, you can keep track of your progress easily and reliably. Featuring programs developed by a certified personal trainer, in addition to a quarter mile progress bar, the Trail Racer 6.8 will keep your workouts dynamic and interesting.
The TR 6.8 is more than just a normal treadmill, as there are a number of added features to set it apart from the crowd. These features include dual water bottle holders, a built in cooling fan into the console and dual speakers to let you run to music or your iPad without the need for headphones.
Heart Rate Controlled Programs
Managing your heart rate is one of the best ways to judge your workout, and having heart rate controlled programs makes it easy. A feature that is usually reserved for much more expensive treadmills, heart rate controlled programs allow users of the XTERRA Trail Racerl to select a workout threshold that automatically adjusts the difficulty level to keep you at the desired heart rate.
When you want to change your speed or incline, you want to do that without affecting your stride and heartbeat. With speed and incline controls conveniently located in the handlebars, the Trail Racer 6.8 makes these changes simple and seamless so that they do not affect your workout.
A solidly designed and built machine, this treadmill is made of a solid steel frame and can support an amazing 400 lbs - a rating usually only found on commercial grade treadmills. Most other treadmills in this price range use a combination of steel and other materials to save cost of production, but the XTERRA line is built solid and has a lifetime frame warranty to prove it.
Space Saving Folding Design
In tight spaces, it is nice to have a treadmill fold and be put away to save some space. The feature that is common across all XTERRA treadmills is the ability to fold up using the easy Lift Assist drive, that helps put the deck into a storage position. In addition, four wheels at the base of the unit make it easy to move around to store away when not in use.
