Spirit Z88 Treadmill Review

The Spirit Z88 fitness treadmill with folding design, cushion flex shock absorption and telemetric heart rate belt.

This space saver (folding) treadmill has a 20″ x 55″ running surface. The Spirit Z88 treadmill is driven by a 2.5 HP continuous duty motor capable of driving the belt at speeds of up to 10 mph and inclines of up to 15 deg. of grade.

Six pre-programmed workouts and two user defined programs are available. 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 occassions.

The console has a blue back lit LCD display that tracks all relevant workout data and a message window that provides motivational feedback. A ¼ mile track assists in motivation and progress through the workout.

There are ten “Quickspeed” buttons on the console that enable the user to jump to one of a number of set speeds instead of adjusting the speed incremently. There are another set of buttons on the console that perform a similar function for the incline settings.

The console also has twin workout cooling fans to help the user keep cool during their workout session.

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 treadmill 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. Aditionally there is a chest belt supplied so that your heart rate can be monitored by telemetry.

The folding deck on the Spirit Z8 is equipped with four transport wheels so that the treadmill can be moved to a storage location after use if required.
