Yowza Biscayne Treadmill Review
This is an intermediate level treadmill in the Yowza range. The Yowza Biscayne is a space saver treadmill which means that it can be folded up to take up less storage space. It has a 20″ x 60″ tread belt and is powered by a 3.0 CHP commercial-grade motor.
This model has a total of 15 training programs that are split amongst the following functional groups: Target programs; Pre-set programs; Speed interval programs; Weight loss programs; Learn programs; Heart rate control program and Fitness test.
A “Floating” deck that rests on multi-durometer elastomer rings provides the basis for the shock absorption system that provides a soft landing surface in front with a firm surface on which to push off from at the rear. The cushioning system helps to protect your ankles, knees, hips, and back by minimizing the impact to these areas.
The console incorporates an easy-to-read LED display. This display tracks all of the usual workout parameters and has a modern pleasing design in keeping with the clean lines of the rest of the treadmill. The console incorporates a 3-speed workout cooling fan, cup holders, and Hi-FI speakers that can be hooked up to an iPod.
The treadmill comes with a lifetime guarantee on the motor and frame, 5 years on parts and 2 years in-home service.

… heart rate monitor
You are given the choice of using either the built-in contact grips mounted on the handrail or the Polar Wireless chest strap (supplied) to monitor your heart rate without any attachments or wires to get in the way.
It’s well known that heart-rate training makes your workout more effective. This is more popularly known as working out in your “target heart-rate zone”. When you stay in this zone, you can get a more effective workout in less time.
As a result, you can burn fat and speed weight loss, improve your cardiovascular health and promote athletic performance.
… heart rate control
When the “Heart Rate Control” program is selected, the treadmill automatically adjusts the intensity of the workout in sympathy with the user’s heart rate.
The Polar wireless heart rate transmitter feeds back information about the user’s pulse rate to the treadmill’s computer. The computer then makes adjustments to the intensity of the workout by varying the speed or incline in sympathy with the user’s heart rate so that they are always in the optimum target fitness zone.
… user data slots
There are three sets of user Data Memory slots which can be used in order to create and then store your favorite workout routines for later use.
… iPod dock
There is provision to listen to your favorite music while you workout through built-in Hi-Fi speakers. You simply connect your iPod to the system via the iPod dock on the console in order to enjoy your favorite music through the console-mounted Hi-Fi speakers.
… workout cooling fan
A workout cooling fan incorporated into the console. The cooling fan, which has 3 speed settings, delivers a stream of cooling air to help you stay cool and fresh during your workout and help you reach your goals faster.
… folding design
The treadmill has a space-saving, folding design. This facility allows you to fold the treadmill into an upright position after your workout where it will then occupy a much smaller floor area.
