This is the intermediate level treadmill in the Yowza range. The Yowza Keewadin 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 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 combination of a "Floating" deck that rests on multi-durometer elastomer rings and a "Swing Arm" shock absorption system together provide a running surface that helps to protect your ankles, knees, hips, and back by minimizing the impact to these areas.
The console incorporates a blue backlit LCD 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 workout cooling fans, cup holder, and hi-fi speakers that can be hooked up to an iPOD.
The treadmill is covered by a lifetime warranty on the motor and frame, 5 years on parts and 2 years in-home service.
The following lists the main features:
… drive motor
A commercial grade 3.0 HP continuous drive motor is used to power the treadmill. The motor is fitted with a heavy, precision balanced flywheel in order to ensure smooth running of the tread belt.
... floating deck
A "floating" deck design that rests on multi-durometer elastomer rings is used on this model. This provides a soft landing surface in front with a firm surface on which to push off from at the rear.
... swing arm shock absorption
In order to tackle this problem the makers of this treadmill have developed a "Swing Arm" shock absorption suspension which has been designed to lessen the impact of walking and running.
This is similar to the suspension system found on gym quality treadmills and provides smooth, shake-free running while protecting your ankles, knees, hips, and back by minimizing the impact to these areas.
… program variety
The following categories of workout programs are included on this model:
1. TARGET PROGRAMS: There are 3 in-built "target programs", which have Time, Speed and Distance targets that can be set to count up or down.
2. PRESET PROGRAMS:There are 4 in-built "Preset" programs each of which has 12 levels of intensity.

4. WEIGHT LOSS: The in-built "Weight loss" program is able to adjust both the speed and incline and offers 12 different intensity levels.
5. LEARN PROGRAM: The built-in "Learn" program automatically records the changes made along the way and saves them into memory for future workouts. There is a choice of either "5K running" or "walking" programs.
6. HEART RATE CONTROL PROGRAM: the built-in "Heart rate control" program automatically reads heart rate via the Polar transmitter and adjusts both speed and incline to maintain optimal performance.
7. FITNESS TEST - the built-in fitness test is based upon Heart Rate Recovery.
… heart rate monitor
The built-in contact grip Heart Rate Monitor is one of the easiest, most-convenient methods to monitoring your heart rate. All you do is grip the handrail 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
This model comes equipped with Wireless 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 storage
Nine individual user memory slots are provided on this model. These user memory slots are used in order to store an individual user’s fitness data including age, weight and fitness level.
... iPOD dock
You can listen to your favorite music through the built-in hi-fI speakers. You simply connect your iPOD to the system via the iPOD dock mounted on the control console.
... workout cooling fans
The treadmill has twin workout cooling fans incorporated into the console. The cooling fans delivers a stream of cooling air to help you stay cool and fresh during your workout and help you reach your goals faster.
... folding frame
This treadmill has a folding frame. After use the deck can be folded into an upright position where it will then occupy a much smaller floor area. The folding mechanism incorporates a gas shock strut to assist in the folding and unfolding of the deck.
