The XT185 is Spirit Fitness' entry level treadmill. It is as dependable as their other models, but with a few less programs and features. It will satisfy individuals that thrive on minimal programming and the desire for simplicity to initiate their walk/hike. Easy to understand command prompts or the ability to just press Start to begin your journey are attributes of this model.

Specialty Fitness retailers voted in an independent survey and awarded Spirit Fitness as the Best Selling treadmills. It is a vote of confidence that these professionals chose the Spirit Fitness treadmill over all other brands. You can be assured your investment will be around for years to come.
Fitness Within Your Grasp
All of the home treadmill consoles have easy to read, bright blue LCD screens. The consoles and keypads are positioned so you can easily reach them to set up your program and push start. The contact heart rate grips are comfortably located in the proper ergonomic position. The center mounted swivel fan (found on all our home treadmills) helps keep you cool during your workout. There is also a conveniently located water bottle / cargo holders for easy access. Put your water in one and your MP3 / cell phone into the other so you can listen to your favorite music.
It All Starts with a Stable Mount
Spirit Fitness spends their money on quality, such as cast motor mounts. Why cast? Spirit Fitness does not believe that a stamped steel motor mount will give the motor the secure mount that is required for a high quality treadmill. If the motor shifts, then the drive belt will loosen, which will make the walking belt feel like it is slipping. Take off the motor cover and look beneath the hood, you can learn a lot about the design of a treadmill.
Fold Away for Extra Space
The Spirit Fitness Folding Treadmill is easy to fold up and down for your workout. This feature gives you a full size treadmill for working out, but then folds into a tight compact space when not in use. Simply pull the yellow handle located on the back of the treadmill frame and the unit will unfold. To fold up, simply pick up the treadmill deck until it hinges at the top. You will notice that their assisted design makes this easy and convenient.
Keeping It Cool
One thing that will destroy a treadmill or any electronic device is heat. It is critical that the drive motor, elevation motor and electronics under a motor cover be kept cool. Spirit's engineers have developed an airflow system that promotes air circulation around the motor and electronics to help keep them cool. The motor covers are designed with ventilation and we use large aluminum frames on our lower electronics, which act as heat sinks to absorb excess heat. All Spirit Fitness treadmills are designed to keep the treadmill cool and running for years.
Spirit Of Innovation
As with any product, a major key is the user interface. Whether it is your cell phone, car, or fitness equipment, you want to quickly be able to use it and get the information that is important to you. Spirit Fitness focused on this simple principle in the development of the new consoles. A quick press of a button and you are off on a walk or a run, or one of the many specialized workouts.
