NordicTrack® Kicks Off Its Official Football Season Treadmill

Built-In Television, MP3 Music and Video Connection and iFit Personal Trainer All in One Treadmill for the Fit Sports Enthusiast

LOGAN, UT--(Marketwire - August 29, 2007) - NordicTrack's Official Football Season Treadmill combines sports entertainment and exercise with a personal flat screen TV built into the console of the NordicTrack ViewPoint 3000. Now you don't have to sacrifice your workout to watch your favorite team, and you can transform "couch potato" time by walking and watching simultaneously.

The treadmill's cable and DVD-ready TV with built-in speakers also includes a multicolor display that shows your speed, time, distance and calories burned, so you don't have to miss a minute of the game to track your workout progress. And the progress will be phenomenal... if you walk at just 3 mph the entire game, you could burn more than 1,000 calories -- enough to balance out a plateful of chips and salsa! And with the extra wide treadbelt, there's no need to worry about losing your footing due to the excitement of the game.

For stadium-like sound experience, this NordicTrack treadmill boasts high-end surround-sound speakers that amplify the excitement of the game. Two 3-inch high-fidelity equalized speakers provide an optimum range of frequencies. There is also a built-in port to allow a full-range bass speaker, as well as an audio amplifier to maximize sound. And to keep everyone in the room happy, there's a built-in headphone jack so you can enjoy the game without disturbing others in the room... you'll just have to try to keep the cheers down!

With an integrated MP3 port, you can play football audio or video podcasts. Integrated speakers and a secure shelf mean you don't have to worry about losing your headphones or dropping your MP3 player while running.

For a pro-level workout, the NordicTrack® ViewPoint 3000 treadmill also offers users the voice and intelligence of a personal trainer using iFit® technology. Each iFit® workout card contains 24 different workouts in an eight-week program that builds toward a specific goal, such as weight loss or endurance. iFit® plans a new treadmill routine three times a week, each routine more challenging than the last. iFit® also coaches the user through the workout, providing tips for breathing correctly, reminding you to maintain good posture and automatically adjusting the treadmill's incline and speed.

The NordicTrack® ViewPoint 3000 treadmill has many other innovative features including:

--  QuickSpeed™ Control--instantly changes the speed from 0-12 MPH with
    the touch of a button.
--  QuickIncline™ Control--instantly changes the incline from 0-12%
    with the touch of a button.

    workouts to be used over and over again for personalized results.

    speed.

    reading with easy-grip sensors in the handlebars.
