The Budget-Friendly Treadmill Every Runner Needs: NordicTrack T 6.5 Si
The T6.5S is probably one of the most versatile models in the NordicTrack five series. It is an intermediate model that can handle high level training, but can also be used for people just starting their journey in the world of fitness.
If you are an athlete, or even if you are simply striving to be, the T6.5S is a good buy. It comes with pre-programmed workouts that can help you improve your performance in sports or simply reach your fitness goals faster. These include, but are not limited to:
- Speed intervals
- Manual mode
- Time trial
- Incline ten percent challenges
- Heart rate control training
The list goes on and on. Of course, if you want to design your own workout program, you easily can thanks to the included SpaceSaver Design. All these features coupled with its smooth operation make this treadmill a perfect choice for athletes who have to train regularly and intensively while traveling because of their jobs or hobbies. Even though it only has a folding frame, its wide footprint makes it stable and safe to use without fear of tipping over.
The T6.5S treadmill has a weight capacity of 220 lbs. This can be seen as average for machines in its class, but it is far from being considered “low” by any stretch of the imagination. Compared with other models in the same price range, this one definitely wins in terms of stability. People who are taller or have larger build might need to climb onto the machine before starting it when they are on their own because the pulley will not be at hip level when they start running on it if they are shorter than 6 feet tall.
NordicTrack lists the belt size as 20″ x 56″, which is very common for treadmills in this price range. For the most part, it does not matter if you are taller or shorter than six feet, as long as your stride is between 20”-25” the belt will feel just right for you. This means that users can have their stride length set to anywhere between 4 ft.-6 ft. on this machine without encountering problems with its belt size.
The T6.5S has a FlexSelect™ Cushioning System which comes with three cushion control settings: soft, medium and firm. It is accompanied by an OrthoTred™ walking surface which guarantees comfort even on extended workouts of up to 60 minutes per session. You might notice that there are two different sections on the belt: a 17” long section at the front and a much longer part along the side rails. This feature comes in handy for those who jog or run on their toes, as they can avoid losing their balance when reaching measures 96”L x 35”W x 58”H which is pretty standard for its class. This means that it can easily fit into most homes where treadmills are concerned, but don’t forget to measure not only your available room’s width, but also its length by going from one wall to another. For full body workouts, you will want to have enough space so you won’t feel restricted while using this.
