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 can handle a maximum weight limit of 250 pounds, measures at 46 x 50 x 21 inches and has a one year warranty on the frame.
