To be able to adjust and personalize the running surface is what runners would want to have with their treadmill which is why the “Runner’s Select Impact Control” cushioning system is applied in the Boston Marathon treadmill. The system allows runner to personalize and gain total control over the cushioning of their running surface. They will be able to reduce the impact on your joints with “ON” position which will give them a full-length suspension. If you would like to have a more “road-like” feel while running, then you could choose the “OFF” position.

A wireless telemetry is used to continuously monitor your heart rate which could be seen displayed on the touch-screen. You can also adjust both speed, within the range of 1 to 15 MPH, and deck incline, between values -6% to 20% of grade, by just swiping your fingers across the touch screen, or you can adjust it using the assisting “Zip” controls. The incline and decline feature of this model is beneficial in activating different muscle group in the legs. Walking on a declined surface is said to burn more calories than walking on a flat surface.
