Rated 4.6 out of 5áby 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great for the bigger guys with long strides At 39 yrs old, this fall My husband was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep apnea. The Dr said get to walking and you will be amazed what it will do for you!!!!!!! She was right ! So my husband hopped on my treadmill and literally stopped the motor, he was too big. So I was off to find a new one with a bigger motor, larger walking platform, but still versatile to fold up and move around. I live three hours from a big city, so the fact that they offered free shipping was awesome. We looked at other reviews and sizing and compared it to our old treadmill and decided that the SOLE F85 would be a good fit for him and our pocketbook. We have not been disappointed. He walks 2 miles everyday (because he says. "I'm walking for my life") I walk 1 mile everyday. In 6 weeks he lost 35 lbs and I have lost 12lbs. It is so quiet , that I fell asleep in my chair one evening and he went ahead and walked and never even woke me up and my chair is10 foot away. So thank you for making a very well built product ! We are very pleased !!! P.S. anyone want to buy a an old used treadmill, because we don't need our old one fore sure ! February 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Solid, Quiet, Very User Friendly: this is a standout machine! My husband (6'2") and I(5'2") are new to treadmill exercise and wanted a machine that would offer varied workout programs and wouldn't have a steep learning curve. After intense research we chose the Sole F85 - mainly because it has: - 2 separate User profiles - 2 Heart Rate Programs - hand bar control for easy incline and speed adjusts - very clear and simple console - great visuals with no worries about internet connections, obsolete software ... yes it's bare bones but keeps track of every important stat and can be read easily - and because it was rated best folding Treadmill for 2014 So far (1 week in) this machine exceeds our expectations. Starting with the excellent service provided during the in house delivery and assembly through to using it on a daily basis this is the perfect machine for our needs and will grow with us as we get fitter.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Quality Machine, Not as Quiet as Advertised, Some Design Flaws, BUT ALL AROUND GOOD. I have had my eye on a treadmill for 3 years now. I fell in love with the machine on the whole during my gym membership at the YMCA but after travel, wear and tear on the vehicle, and time devoted to the membership, we decided that a piece of exercise equipment in the home may be the answer for home bodies like ourselves. Let me say first off that a treadmill sitting in your living room is highly addictive; makes you question that soda, or not have that extra cookie, especially when the treadmill is just sitting there, staring at you. For this reason, DON'T tuck this piece away in your less traveled areas, DISPLAY this item front and center in your home, and make it a priority. Now for the pros and cons. Pros: 1. The running board is a GREAT width. I am 6 foot tall and 280 pounds and it sustains me nicely and could handle a bigger person with ease. I say that this width of running board is great because there are a few out there with wider boards but I feel like unless you are special needs or in a position of morbid obesity, the wide board is probably not for you, because if this board were any wider, it would be cumbersome. 2. The display board is excellent, the buttons are easy to maneuver, and there is ample space for your water and your electronics. 3. The monitor band that is included is accurate and comfortable. 4. The structure is definitely SOLID, there is NO play or wiggle on this piece. 5. Assembly was relatively easy if I do say so myself. 6. I must say I was truly surprised at how nice the sound system was on this piece. 7. Using accuracy checks, the calorie count is SPOT ON if you input your personal information when you program your user 1 and user 2. Cons: 1. There is a design flaw in the decorative plastic piece at the head of the running board and your feet CONSTANTLY hit this. It could very well be the most aggravating aspect of this treadmill. 2. The tray that sits below the main circuit board is ridiculously useless. There is no accessing it during a workout so unless you are setting things there before or after, don't expect to be able to ACCESS it during a run/walk. 3. I understand that there is some "whisper board' technology but I don't agree; I have to double the volume on my television in order to hear it over the board, because there is always a rubbing sound on the board. 4. The item weighs 400 pounds and when they say "free shipping" this is CURBSIDE which means you have to get it into your home and up or down your stairs. Thank GOD I was merely putting it inside my front door. 5. The fan is LAUGHABLE. That shouldn't even be considered a fan unless you are 7' tall, because at 6' tall it does NOT blow in my face. 8. The only thing more laughable than the fan is the so called "fold up feature" This fold up feature does NOT create some space saving solution, it looks like a hot mess when you try to fold it up and it is by NO means convenient. All in all, was it worth the purchase? MOST definitely. Sole has the best warranty in the industry, the instructions were easy to read, and in the long run, this item will be worth its weight in gold. I DID go for the 4 year protection that Dick's offers and I would recommend that as well to anyone who is putting nearly $2000 into a treadmill. I did a lot of research with treadmill repair companies and they estimated that the warranty will pay for itself as MOST people have at least ONE repair out of warranty, and with parts costing hundreds of dollars, spend the money on the front so you aren't aggravated on the back.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Not super fancy, but good value and great option for basements I will admit, I have only had this assembled since yesterday, but I think we will be happy with it. Among the treadmills we looked at, the SOLE had about the lowest belt deck on the market (about 8.5 inches without incline). This was especially important since our basement has low ceilings (about 82"). Although I'd hoped to use it, I mostly bought it for my wife and daughter to use, but, with its relatively low deck, even I am able to use it (I'm 5' 10"), provided I forgo any incline. Although it's pretty no frills for higher end equipment, this is among the least expensive, and it does really do everything we need it to. Plus, it feels good and sturdy. Down sides: the assembly instructions could have been a bit more helpful, and screwing some of the plastic housings onto the frame was nearly impossible. Also, and I'm sure it's true of any higher end equipment, this thing weighs a lot. Be prepared to have help moving the carton with the unit in it. That said, once assembled, the deck folds up and it can be easily moved on its wheels. One feature that would be nice is if there were some mechanism to level it on an uneven floor. I had to use some wood shims on our uneven basement floor. March 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent Treadmill I have had my F-85 about a month, and it seems to be everything it is advertised to be. My F-85 is quiet, smooth, and easy to use. The running surface is wide, long, and has a feeling of stability. The heart rate monitor (chest strap) seems to be accurate. I did have Dick's Sporting Goods deliver it and set it up, which I would recommend. I also had a mat placed under it. The Sole F-85 seems to be the real deal. April 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby F85 is worth every dime!! I've been on a lot of treadmills from home models to gyms. This is without a doubt the best treadmill I've ever run on. I'm a heavy runner and needed something that was easy on the knees and ran quiet with plent of deck length and width to accommodate my running style. This one has it all. It's heavy but once in place it's stable and won't 'walk' on the floor's surface. You can purchase a less expensive model that meets your needs but my experience says you get what you pay for. With the Sole F85, you're getting more than you pay for, especially if purchased on sale. May 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Clydesdale on a treadmill! With over 70 inches of snow in New England I began researching treadmills. I weigh in at 230lbs and run 2-3 half marathons a year so I was looking for a treadmill that could handle my weight, pace and frequent use. I looked at many treadmills and the sole treadmills continued to pop up at the top of each list in terms of quality and reliability. When we hit 90 inches of snow I opted for the f85 over the f80 primarily because of the larger motor. The f85 has the same size motor as the treadmills I was using at the gym. I have had the treadmill for one month and have logged 80 miles on it. It seems very sturdy, the motor is able to transition up or down speeds with out a problem. At 0 incline the treadmill is actually close to 1% incline. This simulates similar effort to running on the road which I prefer anyway. There are very few frills with this treadmill. The only two things I wish the f85 had was an 8 mph button and the ability to move incline by .5. Other than that I love the treadmill. I did not realize how big and heavy the treadmill was until the box was brought to the front of the store. The associates put the box into the back of my pickup truck and I was off. With 8 inches of snow on the way I need to get the treadmill into my basement. I managed to get the box into my house and set up the treadmill in about 2 hours. The most difficult part of the set up was getting the box into the house. I would not recommend paying the extra delivery fee if you have a truck but I would recommend having a couple of friends available to help bring the box to where it needs to be set up. Summary -sturdy deck -strong motor -no frills -heavy box March 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Treadmill The Sole F85 is the best treadmill I have been on. I like the dashboard, it has everything I want and I really like the quarter mile track that it has on it. It is heavy so if you are going to bring it home yourself you will need some extra help. August 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Awesome Machine This machine is awesome! It's durable, easy to use, and the programs are very helpful. I enjoy connecting my iPhone and utilizing the incline feature. May 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby 1st day review Glad I had the delivery and setup guys for this machine. Once it was set up he tested the machine and I was good to go. Did about 15 minutes and works great. I'm starting off slow now since it's been a while since I've been on the treadmill at the gym at work. Loving the convenience of having it at home so I can workout on Saturdays and Sundays and get up in the morning during the weekdays, instead of an evening workout. February 1, 2015
