TT8 Treadmill Key Specs:


The TT8 is a high-end model in the Sole's treadmill series. Like the Sole S77, it belongs to the group of a light-commercial machines, which costs significantly below competing models that can be found on the fitness market in recent years. Thus it is in a class of its own.

Sole TT8 Treadmill Review

The Sole TT8 is engineered for long-term trouble-free use. With its non folding, sturdy frame, t is designed primarily for runners. We can say its frame is almost indestructible. It has been made of welded steel, (not bolted), protected by epoxy powder coated paint, baked to appliance-finish durability. It is capable to withstand a handling of multiple users of various heights and weights (up to 400lbs).


The TT8 is equipped with a powerful 4.0CHP motor which is used to drive the treadbelt, as well as two additional motors that operate the incline and decline levels. Sole's motors have much heavier flywheels than its competitors. Flywheels cause the motor to run cooler with less amp draw and extend the life of the motor. One more unbeatable feature the TT8 comes with is a size and quality of its rollers. It is equipped with high-end 3" crowned rollers, and perma-waxed reversible deck which offers any runner uncompromising quality for years and years of use.

The Sole TT8 treadmill comes with 10 preloaded workout programs, including five preset profiles, one Manual program, one Custom, one Fit Test, and two Heart Rate programs The preset programs are as follow:
- The Hill program - simulates going up and down a hill.
- The Fat Burn program - designed to maximize the burning of fat. There are many schools of thought on the best way to burn fat but most experts agree that a lower exertion level that stays at a steady workload is the best. The absolute best way to burn fat is to keep your heart rate at around 60% to 70% of its maximum potential. This program does not use heart rate but simulates a lower, steady exertion workout.
- The Cardio program - this is exercise for your heart and lungs. It will build up your heart muscle and increase blood flow and lung capacity. It is designed to increase your cardiovascular function and endurance.
- The Strength program is designed to strengthen and tone your legs and glutes (muscles of the butt).
- The Interval program takes you through high levels of intensity followed by periods of low intensity. This forces your body to become more efficient due to spikes in heart rate, between recovery periods.
