offers a very compact footprint for those limited on space. The Spirit XT175 is a
good walking or light jogging home use treadmill. This Spirit has a shorter deck
(20” x 50”) belt, so tall users and runners will be limited on running surface space

for extra size and durability. The console on the XT175 is very simple and easy to
use and will be appreciated by users that are looking for a no frills walking machine.
The Spirit XT175 has a good selection of programs for this price point. It also
has the contact heart rate hand sensors and the wireless HR chest strap for monitoring
your target HR. This treadmill folds up easily and has a “soft drop” feature, so
it won’t come crashing down on top of you. The speed and incline switches are built
into the side arm rails and come in very handy for quick speed and incline adjustments.

(Lifetime frame and motor, 5 years parts, 4 years deck, and 1 year labor).

and has a good package of programs to choose from. The XT275 also includes contact
HR hand sensors and wireless heart rate monitoring capabilities.
The quick speed and incline keys on the display come in handy for those doing
interval training with quick adjustments and the speed and incline controls on the
user side arm rails. This is nice as it allows you to not have to reach forward to
change speed or incline on the display. The deck folds up easily and has a “soft
drop assistance” feature to slowly lower the deck for safety. The warranty at this
price point is excellent. (Lifetime frame, motor, and deck;10 years parts/1 year
