Stay Lean When The Weather Is Mean – S400 Review

The winter months are drawing in and the struggle is real. A lot of people experience the same thing; the cold, dark nights’ sap people of energy and motivation. Suddenly the post work workout or the drive to the gym becomes strenuous as people lose the will cook dinner let alone perform any excessive exercise. So what’s the resolution? What’s the secret to keeping the pounds off during the winter months? The JLL S400 home folding treadmill may be the answer you’re looking for!


Motivate, Don’t Stagnate

By working out at home, you’re saving yourself the aggravation of trying to fit a gym session into an already busy schedule. This means your motivation will stay high giving you a higher success rate of actually completing your workout. When the winter months really set and the rain, snow and sleet arrive, it’s hard to subject yourself to those kind of elements. When working out at home, you can stay focused, motivated and passionate about exercise. Working out at home has never been easier with the JLL S400. It’s ideal as it folds away easily so it can be kept practically anywhere in the house.

Safety First

Safety is also a huge factor when factoring in your training regime during the winter. This isn’t as much as a problem in the gym, however road running can be dangerous at the best of times. The risk of battling traffic is amplified with uneven and bumpy roads that could cause serious injury given one wrong stride. All of this is made even worse in the winter. The dark means visibility is low so you’re less likely to be seen by passing vehicles. And of course living in the UK you’re guaranteed enough rain to float Noah’s Ark so obviously wet, slippery conditions make road running riskier as well. A huge advantage for running at home is that you’re surpass all of these risks meaning you’re provided with a safe, comfortable and confident run.

S400 Features

So what’s the JLL S400 loaded with? First of all, the entertainment factor is a huge benefit of the treadmill. The high powered speakers provide a terrific sound to keep you motivated throughout your run. This is coupled with the fact that it is AUX, USB & Bluetooth compatible so you can enjoy your music off any device! The wireless Bluetooth also means less wires to mess around with. JLL Fitness offer the only digital controlled treadmills in the UK. While other treadmills use traditional speed sensors to track measurements, the S400 uses digital control technology which is more accurate, safer and creates a smoother running treadmill.

The S400 offers a great incline feature. The automatic 20 level incline means burning calories over the winter months will be easy as you can replicate hill walking or running. Even running on the smallest incline will shred fat and help keep you lean over the commonly self-indulgent Christmas period. Couple this vast array of running programmes and you’re onto a real winner. The S400 comes with 15 running programmes which provides a variety of inclines and speeds depending on what workout you want to do. The first programmes are also customisable so you can tailor you exercise to your needs.

What good is a home treadmill unless it folds away neatly in your home? The s400 folds away vertically so it can be kept out of sight (and mind) when not in use. Folding and unfolding is easy with the soft drop system which is made possible with the hydraulic arm.

Earlier I mentioned safety. This extends to looking after your body and especially your joints. Running on the road is harsher to your joints than running on a treadmill. This is truer on the JLL S400 because of the 16-point advanced cushioned running deck. The usage of high grade silicone rubber on the running deck absorbs shock to reduce the impact of your strides. This is a lot healthier for your knees and other joints so it reduces the risk of injuries.

Finally, any treadmill worth its salt comes with a strong warranty. At JLL Fitness you receive a 5 year motor warranty, 2 year parts and labour warranty and a lifetime frame warranty.
