With the demand for home-based treadmills on the rise, there are plenty of companies that compete on delivering the best exercise machines with the most affordable prices. Because of this, there are a variety of systems that are packed with a lot of features, ranging from the crucial qualities down to the features that we can do away with.
However, there are always going to be those motorized treadmills that can easily edge their way ahead of the competition, not because of the quantity of their features, but rather on the quality of the overall system. One such treadmill is the Phoenix 98836 Easy Up Motorized Treadmill.
This handsome system comes in a silver and black finish with strong framework that can easily support weights of up to a maximum of 250 pounds. Its patented frame is designed to absorb impact and minimize stress on joints. When fully assembled, it measures 61” long, 28.5” wide and 50” high. Built with compact features in mind, this system can be stored easily by simply folding it and you can move it with ease, all thanks to the built-in transportation wheels.
This high-class treadmill comes with a deck that is fitted with a tread belt measuring 15” x 48” and can reach speeds ranging from 0.5 to 7.5 mph, thus making it well-suited to those who enjoy walking or jogging to keep fit. The deck can also be inclined manually up to 10 degrees by turning the incline adjuster located at the bottom of the deck. The running mechanism of this exercise equipment is the exceptional 1.5 CHP DC motor with a 2.0 HP peak output which is designed to give you a smooth workout, minus the noise.
The computerized console comes equipped with a 3-window LCD which allows you to keep track of your workout sessions. Values displayed include the speed, distance, time and calories burned. The heart rate can also be monitored with the help of built-in hand grips. It also has plenty of buttons that allow you to adjust and control your exercise settings according to your preference.
There are several features with this system that makes the Phoenix 98836 easily stand out from the competition. In terms of programs, there are 7 preset programs and 3 preset variable speed programs with varying durations: 15, 30 and 45 minutes. You also have 3 program modes that you can choose from, depending on your goals: Time, Distance and Calories. A manual program is included with the system configurations as well, thus enabling you to set and program your own workout settings for future use.
Despite its compact size in comparison to other treadmills, it is rather heavy at 112 pounds, thus moving it around can still be hassle, even if it has wheels.
In summary, this system can provide for majority of your fitness demands. Easy to use and store, it is also well-suited for those who lack the room space. Simply put, this system is highly recommended for those aiming to jog or walk within the confines of their rooms.
