It All Starts with a Stable Mount
You can tell a lot about the quality of a product based on where the manufacturer invests their money in the product. Do they spend it on useless bells and whistles, or do they spend it on parts that actually enhance the quality and performance of the product? At Spirit Fitness, we spend our money on quality, such as cast motor mounts. Why cast? We do not believe that a stamped steel motor mount will give the motor the secure mount that is required for a high quality treadmill. If the motor shifts, then the drive belt will loosen, which will make the walking belt feel like it is slipping. Take off the motor cover and look beneath the hood, you can learn a lot about the design of a treadmill.
Keep It Cool
One thing that will destroy a treadmill or any electronic device is heat. It is critical that the drive motor, elevation motor and electronics under a motor cover be kept cool. Our engineers have developed an airflow system that promotes air circulation around the motor and electronics to help keep them cool. Our motor covers are designed with ventilation and we use large aluminum frames on our lower electronics, which act as heat sinks to absorb excess heat. Our XT185 and XT285 have vents on the front of the motor cover. Our XT385, XT485 and XT685 have vents on the front along with ventilation on the top of the motor covers to promote extra air-flow. All Spirit Fitness treadmills are designed to keep the treadmill cool and running for years.
Fold Away for Extra Space
The Spirit Fitness Folding Treadmill is easy to fold up and down for your workout. This feature gives you a full size treadmill for working out, but then folds into a tight compact space when not in use. Simply pull the yellow handle located on the back of the treadmill frame and the unit will unfold. To fold up, simply pick up the treadmill deck until it hinges at the top. You will notice that our assisted design makes this easy and convenient.
Most of their treadmills have multiple locations to adjust the speed and elevation. You can always adjust the speed and elevation on the console with the quick keys or with the + and – keys on the lower console. The speed can also to be adjusted with the + / - button located on the right handlebar. The left handlebar allows for the incline to be changed. There is even a button on the lower console that allows you to disable the buttons on the handlebars. It is important that you feel comfortable on your treadmill. Allowing you to choose how you make the critical speed and elevation adjustments is just one of the features you will find on Spirit Fitness Treadmills.
Fitness Within Your Grasp
All Spirit Fitness home treadmill consoles have easy to read, bright blue LCD screens. The consoles and keypads are positioned so you can easily reach them to set up your program and push start. The contact heart rate grips are comfortably located in the proper ergonomic position. The center mounted swivel fan (found on all home treadmills) helps keep you cool during your workout. They have also located the water bottle / cargo holders for easy access. Put your water in one and your MP3 / cell phone into the other so you can listen to your favorite music.
