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
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.

Vote of Confidence
Specialty Fitness retailers voted in an independent
survey and awarded Spirit Fitness as the Best Selling treadmills. It is a
vote of confidence that these professionals chose the Spirit Fitness
treadmill over all other brands. You can be assured your investment will
be around for years to come.
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.
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.
It’s important to understand which muscle groups
are gaining the most benefit during your workout. On our treadmills, you
will be using your glute (bottom), hamstring (back of your thigh), quad
(thigh), calf, pec and arm muscles. The LED lights will activate in
three degrees of engagement: Green represents minimal involvement, Amber
medium involvement, and Red, full or heavy involvement. Use this quick
reference to challenge yourself during your workout.
Music & Air Conditioning
We have integrated into most of our consoles a set
of audio speakers. Simply plug in your choice of MP3 player or cell
phone (adapter cord provided) and you can enjoy your favorite music to
keep you going the extra mile. We’ve also built a swivel fan into most
of our consoles to keep you a little cooler.
Heart Rate % Profile
Heart Rate training is proven to be one of the best
ways to measure your workout. Our Heart Rate % Profile gives you a
quick reference of your % compared to maximum projected heart rate. This
is determined by your age, which you entered during the programming
phase of any of the programs. The LED lights up in Amber for 50-60%,
Green for 65% to 80%, and Red for 85%+. This is a quick reference for
you to gauge your workout.
Most of our 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.
