The Sole TT8 is a commercial-grade treadmill equipped with a very strong, quiet motor (3.75 CHP) and spacious running surface (22″ x 60″).
The trainer is especially resourceful for larger runners that have issues staying on a smaller deck and/or frames that feel like they are about to break.
With a lifetime guarantee on frame and motor Sole Fitness has put their confidence behind the model, the same valuable qualities that has made the manufacture one of the best treadmill producers around.
The Sole TT8 includes the basic six pre-set workouts and two custom programs that are found across Sole Fitness’ lineup.
The standard programs will satisfy most needs, and the two Heart Rate programs will likely be your most favorite workout feature. Strap on the wireless chest strap (or use the built-in pulse grips) and the workout automatically adjusts to your heart rate, keeping the routine challenging with ever-changing speed and incline.
Stay cool and comfortable during an intense workout with the built-in cooling fan.
The Sole TT8 provides quality Custom Flex Adjustable Cushioning which has been proven to be far superior to walking/jogging/running on asphalt. The adjustable cushioning is designed to put less stress on back, knees and joints.
The treadmill reaches speeds of 12 mph and incline of 15 percent, suitable for even the most demanding exercise enthusiasts.
The 425 lbs. max user weight frame is one of the largest in treadmill history, and Sole Fitness appears to back up that proclamation with a frame that neither wobbles nor shakes.
Listen to your tunes on an integrated iPod dock with built-in stereo sound.
Production on the Sole TT8 shows with perma-waxed reversible deck and 3″ crowned rollers, providing a smooth exercise experience.

The Sole TT8 has a lot of similarities to other Sole Fitness treadmills standing behind their “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” mentality. Consumers may grumble a bit about the lack of diversity among their lineup, but Sole is always one of the leaders in the fitness world.
