Shipping & Assembly
Assembly is quite simple because the Sole F80 treadmill is a folding treadmill. That is why SOLE Fitness recommends customers who purchase the Sole F80 treadmill to opt for curbside or ground inside delivery.
Sole Fitness offers three different types of delivery. Shipment processing usually takes about 2-4 business days and delivery takes about 6 days. The three different types of deliver are: curbside delivery, ground inside delivery, and turn key delivery.
Curbside delivery of the Sole F80 treadmill is available for free. One of Sole Fitness’ freight partners will make the delivery and a tracking number will be provided. The freight carrier will deliver to its local freight terminal in your area and will then proceed to schedule a convenient time for delivery. The truck driver will reverse as far as possible into the driveway and drop off the shipment. From there, the treadmill can be easily taken out of the box and rolled into your home. Since you will have to wheel the Sole F80 treadmill into your home yourself, its best if you have someone help you. Assembly is not included.
The second type of delivery is “ground inside delivery”, which comes with a $99 fee. The freight carrier will schedule with you a convenient time and place to deliver. In addition, the Sole F80 treadmill will be delivered into your home, then the box will be removed and into the room of your choice. Assembly is not included.
The last type of delivery is turn key delivery. There is a $239 charge and it requires a few more business days to arrange because this method of delivery includes assembly.

The warranty for a well-built machine speaks volumes. The Sole F80 parts are warrantied for 5 years with a lifetime warranty for the Sole F80 treadmill’s major components (the frame, motor).
The Sole F80 treadmill uses hydraulic technology to easily fold the treadmill and make it easy to transport from room to room. SOLE Fitness treadmills have a history of being used in hotels and other establishments. They had to be easily moveable because guests would request treadmills and the equipment would need to be moved from room to room. While most SOLE Fitness treadmills are foldable, the Sole F80 treadmill’s easy-assist folding deck means that the hydraulic technology helps users fold up the treadmill. The Sole F80 treadmill almost folds up by itself.
Something to note is that the Sole F80 treadmill’s speed mechanism responds somewhat slowly. That means it may be more difficult to adjust the speed of the Sole F80 treadmill quickly for interval training and other types of workouts. However, most users don’t seem to experience this or find it annoying.
The Sole F80 treadmill is also quite heavy so make sure you have someone help you upon delivery.
The Sole F80 treadmill is a great investment that is powerful, reliable and great for the price. The foldable design aspect makes the Sole F80 treadmill a great investment for anyone who wants a good treadmill, especially if they do not have a lot of space at home. You an easily move it from room to room. If you move homes, you can easily transport it to your new home! The Sole F80 treadmill has all the modern functions that you would expect, such as a cooling fan, a digital display that monitors speed, distance, heart rate, pulse, etc., and Bluetooth/mp3 compatibility. The price which includes shipping is an excellent value. The Sole F80 treadmill is high-quality and very much like commercial-grade treadmills.
