say enough about how great our Vision Fitness® treadmill
is. My wife and I purchased it to start getting a little exercise.
Upon learning about the SPRINT 8 Challenge, we decided to
dig in and take our health more seriously. The challenge was
a lifesaver because our baseline labs showed my cholesterol
was 302! In an effort to avoid going on cholesterol-lowering
medication, I did everything I could. In less than six weeks
of using the SPRINT 8 feature daily, my cholesterol went down
I lost 20 lbs. and feel great! I've told many
people about my treadmill, and my brother-in-law is ready
to buy! My wife, my doctor, and I are all amazed with the
results of your program."
