  • Treadmill with a weird cord and belt

    I add a fancy new nordictrack t 6.5s treadmill in my gym with a cord and a belt that I believe hooks onto the athlete. This is probably for sprinting? Does anyone here know what's this called and the value of it?

    I can not find anything online.
    Thank you

    Says it's an auto shutdown if I read this right. Saves abrading your carcass if you fall on the mill

    And of course, a safety clip can be attached to your clothes which will power off the treadmill every time the clip gets detached.

      The end that attaches to the machine on mine (Pro Form, made by the same company as Norditrck -- Icon Fitness) is magnetic. I tied the cord for the belt side around the frame and fling the magnet piece to the frame for storage. When in use I put the magnet in place. This creates enough of a slack loop that if by some chance I stub my toe and find myself going down from blackout level pain, I think I can take a swipe at the cord and prevent the dreaded belt burn on my face. If it ever happens and I fail to catch the cord, I will post a photo of the results on the board.
