Treadmills let you go for a walk or a run without leaving your home or gym. The Matrix T5x treadmill is a commercial treadmill with a 60-inch by 22-inch running area that has a hard-wax reversible deck. The incline range of the treadmill is from 0 to 15 percent, and the speed range is from .5 to 12 mph. The console of the T5x is a dot-matrix LED. The machine has a one-button quick-start function, and the running or walking program can be reprogrammed on-the-fly.
