Vote of Confidence
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.
Spirit Fit App
The New SPIRITFIT APP is designed to monitor and record your workout data through an integrated Bluetooth 4.0 module that is compatible with most iOS and Android mobile devices.
Simply download the SPIRITFIT APP, set up the account, pair with your SPIRIT FITNESS equipment, then you’re ready to track your workout schedule, design your workout plan, and set your workout program.
All of your personal profile and exercise data will be stored in your mobile device. During your workout you can watch a movie, catch up on news, and check your email while the SPIRITFIT APP continues to record your exercise data in the background.
The SPIRITFIT APP also communicates with Fitbit, iHealth, RECORD, MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal and other open source training apps so you can continue using the fitness apps that you are familiar with and keep all your workout history in one safe place.
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.
Music & Air Conditioning
Spirit Fitness integrated into most of their consoles a set of audio speakers. Simply plug in your choice of MP3 player or cell phone (adapter cord provided) and you can enjoy your favorite music to keep you going the extra mile. They’ve also built a swivel fan into most of their consoles to keep you a little cooler.
Easily Change Your Workout
Most of Spirit Fitness' treadmills have multiple locations to adjust the speed and elevation. You can always adjust the speed and elevation on the console with the quick keys or with the + and – keys on the lower console. The speed can also to be adjusted with the + / - button located on the right handlebar. The left handlebar allows for the incline to be changed. There is even a button on the lower console that allows you to disable the buttons on the handlebars. It is important that you feel comfortable on your treadmill. Allowing you to choose how you make the critical speed and elevation adjustments is just one of the features you will find on Spirit Fitness Treadmills.
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.
