The Bronze Basic is Pacemaster’s current base model treadmill. All of the Pacemaster treadmills use the same drive system (motor, lower board drive belt and drive roller) they just change the size of the treadmill and then add features like heart rate, programs and quick touch setting. This treadmill is the stripped down version, the goal with this treadmill is to keep it really easy and simple to use. This treadmill has four basic programs, other than that it’s just get on and go. Speed goes to 11 mph and it can incline to 15% so it’s great for runners or hikers. If you want to rent a treadmill and don’t care about the extra features, this is a good way to go.
The Pacemaster Gold Elite treadmill is the nicest of our Pacemaster line up. It is the new and improved Pro Elite model that includes some very useful features. This treadmill is Polar compatible meaning you can use a heart rate transmitter (chest strap) to send information to the treadmill allowing it to adjust based on your heart rate. It also has quick touch programs and a very extensive program selection to keep you motivated. Since this is a bigger heavier treadmill than the other Pacemaster models, This treadmill is our top pick for heavy runners or multi-person usage. Also, anyone who really wants specific heart rate based workouts will love this treadmill. It has some of the best interactive heart rate programs on any treadmill in existence.
The Pacemaster Pro Elite is a full sized treadmill loaded with great programs. This treadmill has a longer running surface than the Pro Plus or Pro Select and offers an extensive selection of great running programs designed for the cross country runner. This is a fantastic treadmill for everyone and my top pick for runners on a budget.
The Pacemaster Pro Plus is a fantastic little treadmill and the one that started it all for us. This treadmill is perfect for those of you who don’t care about having a million and one features but still want the same quality that Pacemaster is famous for. This is a great treadmill but keep in mind, it is the smallest of the Pacemaster lineup and has an 18 inch wide running belt instead of the 20inch that is on all the other models. If you just want to walk and hike, this treadmill just may be our best value
The Pacemaster Pro Select is another great little treadmill packed with great running programs. This treadmill is basically the Pacemaster Pro Plus with two big upgrades. First they increased the belt width by two inches to give you more side to side running area. Next they added a great selection of programs to help keep you motivated. This is our most rented treadmill due to the price and the fact that it fits most people’s needs. This treadmill is my top pick for walkers, hikers and joggers who want some variety and room to wonder.
The Pacemaster Silver Select is a step up from the Bronze Basic. It actually uses the exact same deck, belt, motor, and frame as the Bronze Basic, essentially everything below your feet is identical to the Bronze Basic. The distinguishing features include a simpler to use display/control interface, advanced programming options, and most importantly it has heart rate monitor capability and programming. If you are a walker, hiker, or jogger interested in heart rate monitoring capabilites then the Pacemaster Silver Select may be your optimum machine
The Precor 9.25 treadmill is basically the same as the 9.21 treadmill. It just has a greatly improved console. This treadmill comes with a large variety of programs including interval training, interactive heart rate and custom courses. The improved console on this treadmill also gives you more windows of information at a glance. If you need a smaller treadmill packed with great features this is a wonder full option. We can also supply you with a polar heart rate transmitter if you need one for your training. This is a great treadmill that I would recommend for those who need a small treadmill but one packed with a lot of features to keep you motivated.

The Precor 9.45 treadmill is basically the same as the Precor 9.41 treadmill. The only difference is the 9.45 has a much improved console. This treadmill comes with a great variety of programs including interval training, interactive heart rate and custom courses. If you want the bigger, heavier Precor model but want all the great features, this is a wonderful option. We can also supply you with a polar heart rate transmitter if you need one for your training. I would recommend this treadmill to anyone who wants a full sized Precor treadmill with all the great programming options available.
The Freemotion XTR is the top Freemotion treadmill that we carry. This is an elite folding treadmill with some very user rich features. The XTR has a large 20×58 running surface, 3hp motor with a top speed of 12mph. This treadmill also has an adjustable shock system and has a 12 degree incline capability. The display has many programing options, hand held heart rate, quick touch buttons and a built in speaker system that can hook up to an iPod or mp3 player. This treadmill also comes with a built in mount for your laptop so you can work or surf the net as you workout.
If you know you need to rent a folding treadmill, we have two options. The XTR and the XTR 90. If you are a runner who weighs over 200 lbs. We suggest the XTR over the XTR 90. It has a heavier frame and better overall construction.

Here is a good option if you are in need of a folding treadmill. This is a feature rich treadmill that has a lot of options that our non folding treadmills do not have. This treadmill has some nice entertainment features on it including ipod/mp3 hookup with speakers that allow you to listen to music as you workout. This is a full sized treadmill with a large running surface, it has an easy to adjust shock absorbing system on it and hand held heart rate (not always impressed with the accuracy of this feature). The Freemotion XTR 90 has a top speed of 12mph and can incline up to 12%. This is a good treadmill for walkers, hikers or runners weighing under 240lbs.
