NordicTrack made the T5 ZI treadmill to be innovative through its use of iFit technology and pre-loaded workouts. However, as NordicTrack continued to make new models, the T5 ZI was discontinued and can no longer be purchased through NordicTrack or other traditional retailers. The T5 ZI can be bought used though, along with replacement parts. If you need to refer to the user's manual, you can still access it on the NordicTrack website.
