WHAT WE LOVE

Fast running speed • FlexSelect Cushioning • 12% Incline

The 20×60 running surface is huge and uses an innovative FlexSelect cushioning system that takes stress off of your hips, knees and ankles. FlexSelect™ cushioning on can be activated for joint support or turned off to approximate an outdoor track if preferred.

The C990 can go up to 12 mph and has a 12 degree incline. It' sturdy, durable and has a great sized deck of 20” by 60” so you don’t feel squished when running.

The price provides so many features that aren’t on other comparable models from brands like Lifespan, Sole and Xterra and Sprit.

Installation is easy, the instructions are simple to follow and it takes less than an hour to fully assemble.

We found the C990 is easy to use, and has a great space saver design.  Folding--up is so quick and simple then to unfold a gentle tap with your foot and the deck quietly & Safely returns to the floor. The C990 feels comfortable whether running/walking on,  no catching on the belt and provides an enjoyable work-out option.

SO IN THE END ── Final thoughts

This is a recommended treadmill for people who are looking for walking, jogging or light running. It has a powerful motor, automatic fan, integrated music speakers, a 7” color touch screen and 32 pre-programmed work-outs. Reliable and durable for all but the most intense runners. We recommend it as a buy.

The C990 is one of the best under $1k treadmills available. This is a great machine for light jogging, walking or occasional incline training. If you plan to use the treadmill every day for more than forty minutes or have several people using the machine a step up to the Commercial 1650 is highly recommended.
