Spirit Z8 Treadmill Review

The Spirit Z8 Treadmill with industrial motor, folding running deck and heart rate monitor.

This space saver (folding) treadmill that has a 18 ” x 50″ running surface. Spirit Z8 treadmill is driven by a 2.0 HP continuous duty motor capable of driving the belt at speeds of up to 10 mph and inclines of up to 11 deg. of grade.

This model has 5 pre-programmed workouts and two user defined programs. The user defined programs allow the user to customize elements of the program to their liking and then store the program so that it may be used on subsequent occasions.

The console has an LCD display that tracks all relevant workout data and there are “quickspeed” buttons on the console that enable the user to jump to one of a number of set speeds instead of adjusting the speed incrementally. There are also buttons on the console that perform a similar function for the incline settings.

The side handles also have ergonomically positioned buttons that allow the speed and incline to be adjusted without having to lean forward to press the buttons on the console.

The Spirit Z8 is equipped with a heart rate monitoring function which is initiated by placing your hands on the sensors mounted in the handlebars that extend from the console.
