Smooth 7.35 Treadmill Review

The Smooth 7.35 domestic treadmill with folding frame, extra long tread belt for runners and taller users.

This is the new version of the popular Smooth 7.35 treadmill. This is a “space saver” model which means that it can be folded into an upright position where it occupies less space. It has a 20″ x 54 ” tread belt that is driven by a powerful 3.25 CHP motor.

The shock absorption is taken care of by a “Im-Pression” cushioning system that has been designed to reduce the impact of walking and running. The running deck is designed to increase cushioning and reduce the harmful impact on your ankles, knees, hips, and back.

There are a variety of 25 workout programs that are divided into 5 functional groups. These consist of 1 Manual program, 5 Incline programs, 5 Speed / Incline programs, 4 Heart Rate Control programs, 4 Customizable programs and a Fitness test.

There is a built in deluxe sound system that enables you to connect an iPOD or MP3 player and hear your music selection played through the speakers mounted in the console.

The product comes with long and comprehensive warranty that gives Lifetime cover on the frame and motor, 7 years all parts and electronics and 2 years of in-home service.

Here are the main features:
… workout programs

This model comes pre-loaded with 25 Challenging Preset Programs that are divided into 5 different functional groups:

First there is a Manual Program that allows you to change the speed and incline of the treadmill to your preference during the workout.

Secondly, there are 5 Incline Programs that automatically change the incline of the running deck throughout the workout.

Next there are 5 Speed Programs that automatically modifies the speed of the treadmill throughout the workout.

Then there are 5 Speed / Incline Programs that alters the speed and the incline of the running deck throughout the duration of the workout.

There are 4 Heart Rate Control Program that automatically modifies the speed and incline of the treadmill in sympathy with the user’s heart rate in to maintain a preset target level.

… back lit display

The control console has a “VivaClear” Blue, backLit LCD display. This shows all of the relevant workout data including: speed, time, distance, incline, calories burned, and heart rate control.
… virtual fitness trainer

The treadmill incorporates the innovative “mySMOOTH” Virtual Fitness Trainer. By tracking the user’s progress, creating custom workout plans and offering tips and advice the Virtual Trainer provides the motivation to keep the user on track towards their fitness goals.
… handgrip controls

Adjusting the speed and incline settings of a treadmill whilst it is in motion can be somewhat precarious as on most models the user has to lean forward from their upright walking or running potion in order to adjust the console mounted control.

This model over comes this problem with controls for both the speed and the incline settings mounted on the handrails where they are more easily accessed than from the buttons on the control panel.

… drive motor

This model utilizes a powerful 3.25 HP continuous duty motor. The unit has been designed for long life and whisper quiet operation. The motor benefits from an advanced Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) circuit board which is usually found only on expensive commercial treadmills. The integral speed sensors work in tandem with the PWM circuitry to ensure smooth speed changes.
… shock absorption

This model uses proprietary “Im-Pression” shock absorption cushioning. This innovative system provides a soft landing for the front foot and a firm push-off for the rear foot, reducing harmful impact on the joints and back.

This exclusive technology allows you to exercise more safely and for longer periods of time with less fatigue.

… wireless heart rate control

This model has the Heart Rate Control feature with a wireless chest strap. The pulse reading is taken from the hand grip pulse monitors or wireless chest strap and is used by the treadmill’s computer to automatically adjust the intensity of your workouts.

This dynamic feedback loop provided by the heart rate control feature ensures that you are exercising in your target heart zone so that you are deriving the greatest benefit from your workout.
… book / media shelf

The treadmill has an integral reading rack and media shelf. This conveniently mounted rack is ideal for holding books, magazines, newspapers, a cell phone or an MP3 player.

… iPOD connectivity

Mounted within the control console is an integrated “Smooth Sound” deluxe audio system. This system is iPOD or MP3 compatible, helping you to stay motivated and energized as the music is pumped out of the speakers. You are thus able to experience your favorite music during your workout without being encumbered with headphone wires.
… workout cooling fan

A “Smooth-Air” workout cooling fan incorporated into the console. The fan will enable you to stay cool and fresh even during your most vigorous workout.
… safety key

A safety key and lanyard is provided with the treadmill. In order for the treadmill to be operational the key must be present in the control console. This means that with the key withdrawn the treadmill cannot be operated by unauthorized users such as small children.

The safety key has a lanyard with a small plastic clip attached to one end which can be clipped onto the users clothing. If the user were to accidentally trip or fall while on the treadmill the key is pulled away from the console causing the treadmill’s walking belt to slow to a stop.




… water bottle holder

A water bottle holder is built into the console. This is conveniently located and ideal for holding your drinks bottle or any other small accessory that you may require during your workout session.
