The Smooth 5.15 was one of the most popular treadmills ever made and the new Smooth 5.25 treadmill with many upgraded features is looking to exceed its predecessors popularity.
The team at Smoothfitness have taken the best features of the 5.15 treadmill and re-engineered them in innovative ways to make this model even better.
This is a folding treadmill and incorporates a “soft drop”, shock-assisted manual folding design that folds up and out of the way when you’re done.
The generous control panel/display indicates time, interval time, speed, distance, calories, incline, and program.
A key feature is the patented “Stability Extension System” which provides stability during even the most strenuous workouts coupled to an extra quiet belt and maintenance free deck.
The folding frame design helps to save space, especially if you’re in a condo or apartment.
Here are the main features:
… drive motor
This model utilizes a powerful 2.5 HP continuous motor. This is more powerful than its predecessor – the Smooth 5.25 and delivers maintenance-free service with a high horsepower output for runners or walkers.
… stable feel
Because of their light weight, discount treadmills often rock and sway during brisk walks or runs. With the heavy weight of this model, safety and stability are assured.
… shock absorption
The cushioning on this model is provided by a “swing arm” suspension system.
With “swing arm” technology the entire running deck and frame are suspended on two pivots. This will reduce harmful impact on your ankles, knees, hips and back and ensure that you enjoy the same silky smooth performance gym quality treadmills.
Some recent research has shown that as your front foot gets a soft landing, while launching your rear foot with a firm push-off. Pressure is relieved on the lower back, muscles and tendons.
There is also an added benefit in this type of cushioning – muscles contract at a lower peak intensity for a longer period of time, so they burn more calories.
… heart rate monitor
Repositioned hand grip pulse monitor – conveniently positioned at the front of the console, your hand grip pulse monitor is more comfortable to use.
… control console
The use of large buttons, well-organized panel and easy-to-read displays contribute to the ease of use of this model. Unlike some treadmills you have the ability to adjust preset programs on the fly. You can also quickly set (or reset) speed, incline, time or pulse rate while the treadmill is running.
The intuitive, interactive LCD console lets you monitor your speed, distance, calories, time and pulse simultaneously.
… workout programs
The key to staying motivated when using a treadmill and achieving your fitness goals is having a variety of preset programs, This model gives you seven to choose from.
… folding design
The treadmill has dual-stage, soft drop folding. This is in essence a gas shock-assist “soft drop” feature that makes folding the machine away after use a breeze. The facility allows you to fold and unfold the treadmill by gently tilting the deck into one of 15 positions. The treadmill can then be gently dropped back when it is time for use.
… warranty details
The Smooth 5.25 treadmill is backed with a lifetime warranty on the frame and motor. Additionally there is a 3 year warranty on all parts and 1 year of in-home service.
