Now that we’re hitting the dead of winter, it’s getting harder and harder to motivate for an outdoor jog. This is why I’m definitely getting a state-of-the-art treadmill and other fitness equipment as soon as I become a Web 2.0 bazillionaire. First purchase: the Life Fitness 95T Engage. I came across the 95T at a hotel last week, and it was possibly the finest treadmill experience of my life. We’re talking FlexDeck shock absorption system. 4HP MagnaDrive™. Virtual trainers. Full iPod/iPhone integration—including video. And something called an Ergo Bar. It even does this thing where it’ll sense if you’ve stepped off the machine for a moment and pause the belt until you return.
Next time you’re trying out a new gym, take a quick peek around the cardio room. If you see any of these, you’re probably in the right place. What is your go-to piece of equipment at the gym? Tell us below or @WIREDInsider.
