Spirit Fitness XT485 "Recommended" by Leading Consumer Review Magazine

January 13, 2014 - Jonesboro, AR

Spirit Fitness has a history of producing award winning treadmills and we are proud to announce that history continues with the XT485. It recently received a 2nd place finish for folding treadmills over $1000 from a prestigious consumer magazine. The review noted that the heart rate control programming on the XT485 gave it a leg up on most of the competition, while the ergonomics, construction, and exercise range were all rated as “excellent.”

Ratings on the report were based off of important treadmill features. Each feature was given a score of Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, or Poor. The results were totaled to a cumulative score. The Spirit Fitness XT485 was rated as follows:

Excellent in Ergonomics – This judges how well the product fits people of different sizes and takes into account the belt and foot-rail size, along with the handlebar location.
Excellent in Construction – Based on the results of durability testing and their own judgment of quality design.
Very Good in Ease of Use – Judges the operations of the treadmill in factors such as adjustment of exercise intensity and quality of the display.
Excellent in Exercise Range – Rates the quality of the workout for individuals of varying fitness levels.
User Safety – Examines and rates key areas of treadmill safety such as the size and location of the stop button, operation of the safety key, potential of foot strike on the motor cover.

All treadmills were compared to other treadmills in a similar price range.

We are honored that the XT485 received this ranking as it display’s the care and craftsmanship that Spirit Fitness puts into each of its products.
