This Nordic Track was a great treadmill and I loved using it every day. I had it for about three years and it was nothing less than perfect. Then all of a sudden one day it broke. That is the only reason I would not buy this model again. When it worked it was such a great work out. I could choose the recline I wanted and the higher the better. You cannot go very fast at the high incline because it is difficult. You can get a great fat burning exercise in a short time on this treadmill. It is so easy to operate with the great display and options available. Even though I am a shorter woman, I am still easily able to use the arm handles. In some exercise equipment, I cannot comfortably reach the arm things and I hate wasting the time when I can be exercising my arms as well. It is also comfortable to walk on as it is not so hard that your feet hurt after using it for a workout. I would recommend buying this treadmill.
