Cybex 625T Features

The Cybex 625T supports high-speed training and is also a great choice for walkers. It has a 5.0 HP motor with maximum speed exceeding 12 mph. The track is 60″ to suit runners of all but the tallest heights, and at 22″ wide it provides ample elbow room. For rapid calorie burn and an extra cardio challenge the track can power-tilt up to 15%. The automated incline is also excellent for defining muscles in the lower body.

This treadmill can be controlled by the user’s heart rate. Heart rate monitoring is supported with wireless telemetry and touch sensors. A constant readout of BPM is shown, plus there’s a multi-color light indicating heart rate zone.

For superb joint protection Cybex treadmills use the IS3 Intelligent Suspension System, which was developed with research from the Cybex Institute for Exercise Science. This system uses an advanced elastomer to support each step and provides cushion variation throughout the deck: The ride is softest at the landing point, firmer in the middle and firmest at toe-off. This setup helps deflect shock to promote comfort and endurance.  

The Cybex 525T is iPhone/iPod compatible and has a 30-pin connector. It can charge devices and has on-screen controls for volume and track selection.

Two optional upgrades are a wireless audio receiver and the E3 View high definition monitor. To meet every preference the E3 View can show workouts, live TV, on-demand TV and more.
