Weslo Crosswalk 5.2T may come across as odd considering its appearances. However, that’s only superficial. This model is easily one of the most capable treadmills you can get for $500 or less at the moment. With that said, it definitely doesn’t hide its niche purpose. Join us as we get into figuring out what this treadmill is all about and how it could just be the solution you were looking for.
These days we are starting to see all kinds of different treadmills hit the market. Among those variations, there are treadmills that offer more than just a cardio exercise. Weslo Crosswalk 5.2T features a CrossWalk upper body trainer which is integrated into the frame of the treadmill. Best of all, it is an optional feature. If you don’t want to use it, you don’t have to. Speaking of the frame, Weslo went with a sturdy vertical construction that is thicker than usual due to the added levers we’ve just mentioned. The bottom frame is tubular, thick and capable of supporting the entire device with no issues. It doesn’t take long to figure out that this isn’t really a small treadmill. With a belt that measures some 50″ by 16″, it definitely takes up some real estate. However, when folded, it isn’t much larger nor bulkier than other models in this class.
With an impulse motor that is capable of providing 2.25 hp, Weslo Crosswalk 5.2T has more than enough power to sustain 10 mph routines with ease. If you are wondering whether or not it comes with incline control, the answer is yes. Although, Weslo went with a manual incline selection. The control module is fairly simple and features a smallish LCD screen. Weslo has packed this thing with several workout apps, all of which were designed by certified trainers. One cool feature we saw was a thumb heart rate monitor. It allows you to check your pulse by simply giving the machine your thumbprint for a moment. Lastly, they have included their Comfort Cell cushioning technology which greatly reduces the stress on your joints. Overall, it is about as feature packed as we could have hoped for considering its price. If you can go without Bluetooth and other stuff, Weslo Crosswalk 5.2T will prove to be a worthy investment.
Truth be told, we were slightly skeptical when we first saw Weslo Crosswalk 5.2T. ThoseCrossWalk handles made it look funny, or gimmicky at the very least. Once we took a good look, all of that skepticism went away. This is a proper treadmill that covers all of the basics. It is reliable, has a powerful motor and offers incline control. Not only that, but we also have more advanced features as well. Since it is at the lower end of our price range, we simply can’t find a serious fault in it. It is an absolutely awesome treadmill.
