The ProForm LX360 treadmill folds up so that it can be stored easily in the corner of a room. It is extremely heavy to move so it is recommened that you place this where you want it to stay and then you can raise thread part or lower when you want to use it. The screen has a digital output which records your length of time, your speed, you fat burned, calories burned and with a quick read optical pulse reader where all you do is place your thumb on it. There is a safey strap that you attach to your collar and the other part is plugged into the "dashboard" of it. If you get in trouble and you fall off it will pull the saftey out of the machine and it will shutdown to prevent further injury. The machine has an incline function that allows you to simulate going up a hill or just running on a flat surface. A very nice feature is that you have two beverage holders in the right and left top of the dashboard so you can keep yourself hydrated at all times. There is also a plastic braise in the middle where you can place a magazine or newspaper. With speeds up to 10 miles per hour this is the perfect machine for the avid runner or walker alike.
