Phoenix 98516 Manual Treadmill Review

The Phoenix 98516 is a manual treadmill - that means there is NO motor and it keeps up with you, rather than you with it. Whilst I am not usually a fan of manual treadmills, this is a fold up treadmill and comes at a very reasonable price.     The Phoenix 98516 Easy-Up Manual Treadmill is a manual treadmill equipped with a heavy-duty weighted flywheel and 41.5 by 13.5 inch running belt which allows it to operate smoothly and with minimal noise. The flywheel and the running belt are able to respond well to the persons walking or running speed. This means that a persons speed in running determines the speed under which the belt will spin. This makes it easy for the user to run at a speed that he or she is most comfortable with.   Like many other treadmills, the Phoenix 98516 Easy-Up Manual Treadmill can also display how much performance a person has made in the treadmill. The Phoenix 98516 is equipped with a single-button electronics display so you can monitor you speed, distance, time and calories burned.   As the name suggests it, this model is perfect in small rooms as it saves a lot of room with its folding frame feature. This makes the treadmill easy to fold up and keep as it can be locked into the upright position and kept in any storage room. The treadmill [...]

Bowflex Series 7 Treadmill Review

The Bowflex Series 7 Treadmill is an excellent and very popular choice. With a high horse power motor that can take a pummelling, an incline range of up to 12 and (currently) a very reasonable price tag it is clear why this is such a popular treadmill.

Merit Fitness 735T Treadmill

The Merit 735T treadmill is an upgrade from Merits previous models. It offers more room for you to run on, a motor that has a lifetime guarantee (not even the 725T has this!), and an extra durable frame.  But is the lifetime guarantee the only reason to go for the 735T?     Features 6 program choices: Manual, rolling hills, weight loss, fat blast, cardio burn, endurance challenge 1.75 CHP (2.75 THP) drive motor; 0.5-10 mph speed range (0.1 increments); 0-10% elevation range 18 × 52" running area with AEROsoft cushioning; Treadmill folds up easily for storage. 4 red LED windows with LED brickyard display; water bottle holder in console; cooling fan; contact heart rate monitor Warranties: Lifetime frame and motor, 90-days parts and labor. User capacity 275 lbs. I ordered my treadmill from Amazon and got it pretty promptly, although I had to take an afternoon off waiting for delivery. It is heavy. Actually it is really heavy! Ask the delivery guys (nicely) if they will bring it into the room you want to use it in. If that is up or down some stairs ask real nice! This is a pretty big home treadmill, so if you can, measure up your room and doorways first to make sure you have enough room for it and to see if you will be able to move it once it is put together. The treadmill is 73 [...]
