The Healthrider SoftStrider is a low-impact treadmill designed to increase a person's cardiovascular performance. It differs from other treadmills because of its iFit.com compatibility, allowing people access to a virtual personal trainer.

Features

The SoftStrider contains 10 built-in fitness programs, a heart rate monitor, speeds of 0 to 12 miles-per-hour (MPH), pulse sensors, an LED display console, power inclines of 0 to 10 percent and cooling fans. It is also iFIT.com compatible, which allows you to virtually connect with a personal trainer who motivates and instructs you while you use the treadmill.

Uses

The treadmill can be used to maximize how many calories are burned during a workout, increasing the caloric deficit--a factor that can cause weight loss. According to WorkoutWarehouse.com, you can also maximize your aerobic workout by adjusting the speed and incline.

Safety

The treadmill contains shock-absorbing treadbelts, which can reduce tension on the joints, ankles and knees. It can also safely accommodate weights of up to 330 pounds.

Availability

As of August 2010, the treadmill retails for $1,499 on WorkoutWarehouse.com. The treadmill is not available in retail stores.
