A real jewel of a treadmill for serious running training. Having received and assembled my machine recently, I've so far had a few sessions on this machine and it feels great. My only criticism is there's only one set of direct keys on the console and you have to select if they relate to the speed or incline. This aspect was different to what I'm used to in the gym, but it was easy enough to get the hang on it. If I had to choose again, I'd still go for the XT285!
