  • New Treadmills at the IMA

    September 3, 2014


    We have added 8 new treadmills to the main cardio fitness room on the second floor (located along the south side of the room). There are 4 LifeFitness and 4 Precor pieces—the latest state-of-the-art models of each. These treadmills are more energy efficient and offer more shock absorbing decks than the older models that were replaced. Additional features include (some offered only on the pieces located away from the windows):

    • Personal online work-out tracking (LifeFitness—LF Connect; Precor—Previa)
    • iPod/iPhone compatible (Android also on LifeFitness)
    • Compatible with various mobile apps
    • LF Lifescape—allows user an experience through immersive outdoor adventures, run or hike in destinations all over the world (similar features are also available in Matrix treadmills & climbmills and LifeFitness bikes)

    We hope you enjoy these new additions to the IMA cardio fitness equipment line.
