Go the extra mile on the Life Fitness T3 Treadmill. Taking good care of your joints, you’ll find the same impressive FlexDeck shock absorption used on all Life Fitness home and commercial treadmills. With a welded-steel frame, reliable 3-HP motor, and large 60- by 20-inch deck, you can comfortably stride up to 12 mph or crank the incline up to 15 percent. The easy-to-navigate Go Console is loaded with a clear LCD screen, preset workouts and two user profiles, and there’s even a wireless heart-rate monitor along with several interactive heart-rate programs. Within easy reach you’ll find contact heart-rate sensors and a lower control pad with handy speed and incline buttons. Plus, you get an Energy Saver button that dramatically lowers the treadmill’s energy consumption when it’s not in use.

Fitness equipment typically offers heart-rate measurement, which is great for efficient weight loss, improving fitness for your favorite sport, exercising safely, and bettering your general cardiovascular health. Heart rate is monitored by contact and/or wireless telemetry. While the latter is considered more accurate, each system has advantages. Here’s a quick primer.
Contact heart-rate monitoring utilizes hand sensors in the handrail or handlebar. You grip the sensors for several seconds and your heart rate is shown on the console display in beats per minute. Contact heart rate is a good choice if you don’t have or don’t like to wear a heart-rate chest strap.
Wireless telemetry heart-rate monitoring utilizes a chest strap that you wear that reads your heart rate and transmits a radio frequency to show your heart rate on the machine’s console display. In addition to being more accurate, the wireless system is hands-free, and it allows your heart rate to be constantly displayed (since it doesn’t rely on sensors that you have to hold). This constant monitoring is especially useful for heart-rate control programs, in which the exercise equipment makes intensity adjustments to maintain or vary your heart rate at particular training zones.
