A new addition to the ProForm line-up of treadmills, the City L6 represents the entry-level unit of the family at just $699. Big enough to get the job done, but small enough to tuck away under a desk or into a closet, a number of the same great features are offered as with the larger, more costly models. Measuring 29 inches x 70.25 inches x 44.5 inches, the total machine only weighs about 125 pounds but can support up to 250 in user weight.

Well here we have it, the all-new 2021 NordicTrack EXP 10i treadmill. When the brand discontinued their T-series line of treadmills we knew something new would be coming down the pipe; it was really just a matter of when they would launch. This new EXP 10i comes as a replacement for the outgoing T 9.5S we reviewed here, and a cursory glance reveals that the two are pretty close in specs, though with a reasonable price gap between the two. At full retail, the new EXP 10i comes in about $400 cheaper than its older sibling. By and large, it’s... Read More
The Display: iFit Coach Enabled Vs iFit Coach Ready
Fitness machines run iFit Coach in different ways. The models made today are either "enabled" or "ready" to run the technology. With iFit-enabled treadmills you can access all iFit features directly through the treadmill's console. With iFit-ready treadmills, you bring your own screen.
All things being equal (like horsepower and warranty). it costs more to buy a treadmill that's iFit enabled. Still, these models earn spots on our best buy treadmill lists for value.
Regardless of which type of iFit treadmill you choose, membership grants access to iFit Coach anywhere with WiFi. Compatible devices include Apple and Android phones, tablets, iPod Touch, and Apple TV. You can also connect iFit to a TV with an HCM1 cable.
Power Incline Treadmills With iFit Coach
Power incline is key to the best iFit Coach treadmill experiences. An iFit Coach treadmill with incline automatically adjusts its angle to support your training goals. This feature is especially motivating with an iFit Google Maps workout, as the incline fits the view.

Aside from the views, why train on an incline? Well, here are two major health benefits of incline training:
Muscle Tone: As the angle changes, your muscles work differently. The result of training at different inclines is better lean muscle definition.
Calorie Burn: The steeper the angle, the more calories you burn per minute without changing your speed.
A third health benefit is lower-impact exercise. With incline training, you can walk rather than run and calorie burn will still be impressive. With pressure relieved from over your knees, you might have better endurance as well.
The best treadmills with iFit Coach have a maximum incline of 20 percent (which is very steep, especially for running). Up to 40 percent incline is available on iFit Coach incline trainers. The top models have small declines as well. This includes a ProForm Desk Treadmill.
