Bull’s Eye: Proform Le Tour De France and Nordic Track T25.0

Monday, 12 November 2012  |  Gear + Gadgets

This Bull’s Eye spotted these two machines at Fitness & Athletics in Bonifacio High Street (beside Riovana) and pretty much left the store praying I’d win the lotto so I could take the two home.


It’s no wonder that these flew off the shelves at Ironman 70.3 Cebu Expo. For the serious, competitive cyclist, this is a dream come true.

– On the Proform Le Tour de France with Arleen Lindo of Chris Sports –



The Proform Le Tour de France is named such because it allows you to train through the exact route of the Tour de France right in your own home. Choose among the 24 pre-mapped programs (or any route in the world using Google maps), hop on the bike, and the bike will essentially take you through the undulating ascents and descents (yes, it can go on a decline) of the course. All you have to think about is surviving the workout.

It can also connect to Google Maps allowing you to bike through any street all over the globe. It has a power meter and gears, too.

Regular Price: P87,495
Sale Price: P69,995

– Your gears –

– Choose what Stage of Tour de France you want to ride… –

– Or choose a route anywhere in the world on Google Maps –



This treadmill just blew me away. I’m not a big fan of treaders because I really prefer to run on the road, but, I must admit, this machine can easily change that for me.

– I want! –

The NordicTrack T25.0 has full internet connectivity so it can connect to Google Maps. Do you want to run through the New York City Marathon route? Or Kona? Or Paris?  Just choose a route from anywhere in the world on the 10-inch touchscreen and the NordicTrack will climb or descend (yes, it can go downhill too!) as if you were running on the road itself.


– That’s a sample run through Hawaii roads on the 10-inch screen –

– Left buttons actually allow you to put the treader on a decline too! –

With full web-browsing capabilities on an Android system, you can connect to Facebook or Twitter while running. (Hey, that’s a good thing for all you social media runners out there.)
