Nautilus T516 Treadmill Review
If you want a gym quality treadmill but think you can’t afford it – think again – the Nautilus T516 Treadmill is a commercial quality machine that will give you many, years of excellent service.
Nautilus stands by its equipment by offering one of the best warranties in the fitness equipment industry. It will also give you a comfortable and enjoyable workout. With speeds ranging from half a mile an hour up to 15 miles an hour even the most avid sprinters should be happy with a Nautilus T516.
It features a 3.2 hp continuous heavy-duty motor which drives the cushioned Softrak suspension deck. Because it will accommodate larger people, the deck is a wide 20” x 58” and the Softrak suspension will offer a low-impact experience for any user.
You’ll never get tired of the number of different workout you can do on this versatile treadmill - 26 to be precise, and you can set it up for inclines up to 15 per cent. You can even personalize your own exercise routine and program it in to the computer. The dual screen monitor will keep you apprised of your heart rate, speed, calories and the distance you have covered. You can even challenge yourself to either a 5K or 10K program.
The Nautilus T516 Treadmill is a beautifully designed machine. Stay cool with the built-in fan and keep towels and anything else you need close at hand in the built-in magazine rack.
Control the remote speed and incline through the comfortable cushion grips and monitor your heart rate with one of the four Polar heart rate programs. A chest monitor belt is included.

Nautilus T516 Treadmill User Review
A word of warning – this machine will be delivered on a wooden pallet and it weighs approximately 220 pounds. Ask a couple of buddies over to help you move it.
I am a big guy but with the help of my Nautilus T516 Treadmill I’m getting smaller! I’m also tall so the length of the deck helps when I’m running, there’s plenty of room on there. I’m only managing up to 5 miles an hour right now but knowing this will go up to 15 miles an hour gives me a good mental challenge. I’m going to try the 5K course and keep doing it until I get much faster, then I’ll move on to the 10K and maybe program in a workout of my own.
The incline also helps a lot. At first I couldn’t run fast at all so I kept setting the incline up and I could definitely feel the burn in my legs.
One of the problems with being overweight is the excess strain that’s put on your knees, back, hips and ankles. I was worried that I was going to end up hurting my joints but I haven’t had a problem thanks to the excellent cushioning and suspension under the deck.
Exercising is like anything else, you have to get into the habit of doing it but the Nautilus T516 Treadmill is helping me enormously and thanks to the heart monitor I always know when to slow down or stop.
The Nautilus T516 Treadmill is a gym quality machine, backed up with an awesome warranty that will keep you running and getting fitter with each session.
